About A Win: Spurs 121, Timberwolves 92

Friday, the San Antonio Spurs walked into Minnesota as an eight point favorite against the Timberwolves. However, with the Spurs’ offense struggling through their first 11 games, specifically making outside shots, it wasn’t guaranteed Friday’s contest would end up as a comfortable game for San Antonio. After 48 minutes of play and being led by […]

Is It Time For The Salary Cap To Go?

The NBA is making record profits, teams are selling for exorbitant amounts of money, ungodly television deals are lining the pockets of TV and league executives alike, and the sport is more popular than it has ever been.  Perhaps the time has come to address a question that is often avoided in professional sports—is it […]

Video: Latest H-E-B commercial has the Spurs searching for slogans

In the latest commercial spot, Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Patty Mills and Kawhi Leonard are tasked to come up with a new slogan for ice cream.

Video: Gary Payton Says Dwight Howard Disliked By Many Players

Retired All-Star guard, Gary Payton holds nothing back when asked about the Houston Rockets’ Dwight Howard.

“I think he’s disliked by a lot of players now, they’re starting to dislike him a lot” says Payton. “Because what Dwight Howard does, you know, you see all the smiles and the antics, that’s getting on peoples’ nerves.”

So what do you think San Antonio Spurs fans? Is Howard just misunderstood or is he genuinely disliked by a growing number of players in the league? (more…)

Watch: Ryan Richards kills it on the court

Consider this a reminder of what could have been for San Antonio Spurs overseas prospect Ryan Richards.

According to Hoops Fix, Richards, who is now with Hungarian club BC Kormend, showed up in Leeds to get in some workouts at the Midnight Madness Leeds qualifier at Leeds Metropolitan University.

There, Ryan put on a show as he showed a wide array of post moves, quickness, outside shot, ball handling and a whole lot more. It’s enough to make Spurs fans wish he’d do that for San Antonio at the NBA Summer League. (more…)

Video: Joey Crawford did something nice for San Antonio… you read that right

Long time NBA referee Joey Crawford visited Linton Elementary School to read to students. Yes, the same Joey Crawford who ejected San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan for laughing on the bench and who has harassed the Spurs for years. Needless to say, Joey isn’t a fan favorite among Spurs fans.

Now it seems he’s mellowed out (at least in public) and doesn’t want kids to become “slugs” and instead wants them to be successful. If your mind is blown right now, I can’t say I blame you.

This is a guy who has a compilation of bad calls on YouTube with plenty more available for individual calls that are exceptionally horrific. I guess I’m just surprised that San Antonio didn’t use this opportunity as a PSA to show how bad people can be reformed. (more…)
