2014 NBA Finals - Game Five

Matt Bonner Loves Retribution

Matt Bonner loves himself some revenge and retribution. He especially likes it when it comes against the Miami Heat, the team that knocked the San Antonio Spurs out of the Finals, the year before. Bonner is a tenured member of this Spurs team having been in San Antonio for a decade now. GiveMeSport caught up […]

Video: Ginobili’s Brilliance In The Pick-and-Roll

We all know Manu Ginobili can pass, but did we know he can pass this ridiculously in one of the most simplest basketball plays ever in the pick-and-roll?

The San Antonio Spurs and Ginobili have made this play the staple of their offense for years and there’s just a handful of teams that can pull it off with such ease. As far as the play goes, we know how the play will develop.

A Spurs big man will set a pick for Ginobili as the ball-handler, and either fake the pick, or bump Manu’s defender to cause space to create the play.

After that, it’s all Ginobili’s genius as one of the most underrated passers in the game. As you’ll see, Manu just needs some daylight after the pick and his instinct kicks in on how he’ll deliver the pass. Whether it’s a simple bounce pass or a pass between someone’s legs, it’s a sight to watch for any basketball purist. Check out the video of Ginobili’s brilliant passing below. (more…)

Video: Popovich doesn’t give a (bleep) about player’s names

Oh coach Pop.

In old video footage, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was giving some basketball lesson to a group of young aspiring players.

And in typical coach Pop fashion, he formally introduced himself when he told the youngsters the honest truth – he doesn’t give a (bleep) about their names.

I’m sure he was just kidding around and does care for all players. It’s just Pop being Pop. (more…)

Video: Spurs owner Holt partakes in the Ice Bucket Challenge by using a massive wheel loader

We have seen a few members of the San Antonio Spurs do their part to raise ALS awareness by doing the Ice Bucket Challenge.

From Tony Parker, Becky Hammon, Matt Bonner to Danny Green, the Spurs definitely are making an impact for ALS research.

Now we can add Spurs owner Peter Holt to the list of those who got a nice ice cold bath.

However, Holt used a massive wheel loader to get soaked and proceeded to challenge the Spurs and their fans. (more…)

Mavs’ Cuban looking to take page out of Spurs’ playbook

Tim Duncan may be the heart and soul of the San Antonio Spurs, but the teammates that surround him are arguably more valuable. Without players such as Patty Mills, Boris Diaw, Tiago Splitter, and Danny Green, Duncan more than likely would have to shoulder more of the load for San Antonio offensively and defensively, and […]

Tim Duncan, Shaq and the Dominant Center

The times they are a-changin. Bob Dylan said it back in 1964, and it still holds truth. Games are much more complex than Pong, 21 Jump Street went from a TV series to a movie with a sequel, and the Rugrats are all grown up. Amongst those ch-ch-changes is the death of the dominant center […]
