There was no game on Thursday, but All-Access Pass was at media availability. Despite the throngs of reporters and avalanche of boom mikes, here's what was uncovered at the SBC Center on the day before Game 2.

1. Spurs Asst. Coach Mike Brown Answers Three Burning Questions:
What would you choose to be the mascot of the new Charlotte franchise? "I would call them the Hornets. Give New Orleans the Jazz. No wait ... Utah can keep the Jazz, but give New Orleans the Blues."
Iceman or Dr. J? "Hey, I'm in San Antonio. I gotta go with Iceman."
Tolbert or Walton? "ESPN's Michele Tafoya (laughs)."

2. Remember the A La Mode:
Listening to Northeast native P.J. Carlesimo discuss fine dining in his adopted home of San Antonio. "There are two very good Italian restaurants here," said Carlesimo. "Bagels are a little hard to come by, though."

3. He'll Be Here All Week, Part One:
Hearing Richard Jefferson teach a reporter proper cell-phone etiquette. "Could you please put your phone on vibrate?" he joked with a scribe when his mobile rang during an interview.

4. Nets Forward Brian Scalabrine Answers Three Burning Questions:
What would you choose to be the mascot of the new Charlotte franchise? "The Summer Sanders." (Sanders was standing next to him at the time.)
Iceman or Dr. J? "If I want to fill the stands, I want the Iceman. If I am trying to win a championship, I want Dr. J."
Tolbert or Walton? "Bill is my man. He's a Pac-10 guy. I tell Bill that he has the toughest job working with Tolbert. But then I tell Tom he has the toughest job dealing with Bill."

5. Spurs Forward Danny Ferry Answers Three Burning Questions:
What would you choose to be the mascot of the new Charlotte franchise? "I would say Kings, but that is already taken. No idea really."
Iceman or Dr. J? "Both were awesome, but I would go with Dr. J because he has the championship ring."
Tolbert or Walton? "I love listening to them together because they bicker like they are married."

6. Speed Limit Is 40:
Ageless wonder Kevin Willis saying he might not be the fastest Spur, "But I've beaten everybody on the team in a full-court race. Only Speedy Claxton and Tony Parker can consistently beat me." The 40-year-old Willis also said he'd be running a mini-marathon in the offseason.

7. ESPN the Magazine's Ric Bucher Answers Three Burning Questions:
What would you choose to be the mascot of the new Charlotte franchise? "Maybe the Charlotte Tractors. Tractors isn't something that could really work for a basketball image, but I kind of like it."
Dr. J or Gervin? "Iceman. I usually like the lesser-known guy. Ice has a little more odd flavor. Dr. J was dynamic, but there's only one guy who really had the finger-roll."
Tolbert or Walton? "I'm a Bay Area guy. I gotta go with Tom T. Bill's just too facetious for me. Tom's more of a salt of the earth guy."

8. Spurs Guard Speedy Claxton Answers Three Burning Questions:
What would you choose to be the mascot of the new Charlotte franchise? "Stingers."
Iceman or Dr. J? "Iceman. He used to play for the Spurs."
Tolbert or Walton? "Wow (laughs). That is a tough one. I'll have to go with my man Bill. He makes me laugh."

9. He'll Be Here All Week, Part Two:
Hearing Jefferson decide to bite his tongue when asked what he thought about the spat between the governors of New Jersey and Texas. "I was just going to say something that might get me investigated by the federal government."

10. Super Fan James Goldstein Answers Three Burning Questions:
What would you choose to be the mascot of the new Charlotte franchise? "Right off the top of my head, you want me to come up with a name?"
Dr. J or Gervin? "I'm a fan of both of them. Don't make me choose between them."
Tolbert or Walton? "I've gotten to know Bill Walton on a much closer basis, from his days announcing games for the Clippers. So Tolbert for his analysis, and Walton for his sense of humor."
