Spurs news briefs: Cuban, a villains list, a UFO and more

• With the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks owning two of the best records in the NBA and the Western Conference, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban still feel the Miami Heat are the cream-of-the-crop.

In an interview with NBA.com, here is what Cuban had to say about the Heat:

During a visit to San Antonio this past weekend, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said the Mavericks were probably the best team in the league right now. It’s hard to argue that opinion, given the 11-game winning streak the Mavs own after Thursday night’s win over New Jersey.

I brought this up with Mark Cuban before the game as he pounded away on the Stairmaster. Surely, he has to be pleased with the progress of the hottest team in the NBA, one that battling San Antonio for the league’s best record. But are the Mavs, in Cuban’s biased opinion, the best around?

“Miami is the best team in the league right now,” Cuban said simply.

Look it’s perfectly understandable why Cuban didn’t pick the Spurs seeing how these two teams are rivals but to pick the Heat is questionable. The Heat started out the gates slow and though they may be winning lately, they haven’t exactly beaten the best teams in the NBA.

• Bring up the words “San Antonio Spurs” to a die-hard Phoenix Suns fan and you are probably going to get an earful on how much they cannot stand the Spurs and rightfully so. The Spurs have dashed the Suns NBA title hopes countless times and have crushed the hearts of their fans time and time again.

In an article from suns.com, a few current and past Spurs made their top 10 villains list including Manu Ginobili, Robert Horry, Bruce Bowen, Tim Duncan, and Tony Parker. Find out which other Spurs made the list at suns.com.

• By now all of Spurs fandom has heard about Ginobili witnessing a UFO. Listen to what he had to say about his UFO encounter in this video from woai.com:

• If you are fortunate enough to have season tickets and sit in the first three rows at the AT&T Center then you are in luck. The Spurs have made a new event-level club for about 300 season-ticket holders. It’s called the Express Jets Courtside Club. (source sportsbusinessjournal.com)
