You probably cannot count on two hands the number of times you’ve heard somebody speculate, predict or even report that Kansas basketball coach Bill Self one day will be the head coach of the San Antonio Spurs.

Tuesday morning, Stadium’s Jeff Goodman had Self on his Insiders show and the two talked about the ever-present Self-to-the-Spurs rumors along with Self’s relationship with Spurs CEO R.C. Buford.

The connection between Self and Buford is as strong as it gets for two people not related by blood.

Buford hosted Self on his visit to Oklahoma State when Self was a player and later helped him land a job on Larry Brown’s staff at Kansas as a graduate assistant.

The two longtime friends lived together for a year, were in each others’ weddings and have remained close friends throughout their professional careers.

 As ridiculous as it may be, you can bet it will continue to come up around the basketball rumor mill, no matter how many time Self says it shouldn’t.
