Spurscast 339: Fan-isode

We’re still weeks away from the first wave of NBA life, but there is still plenty of action to discuss. Actually, there isn’t. Outside of FIBA Worldcup action, offseason news has been almost nonexistent and there is only so much time the topic of training camp bodies can fill. That and we’re also not looking to squeeze blood from a stone just on guys that you will likely never see on the Spurs’ regular season roster. So last week we came to you on our hands and knees, begging for questions to be sent our way.

This episode is all on you, listeners. Welcome to the first ever Spurscast Fan-isode. Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) take on the questions mailed in by San Antonio Spurs fans to the one and only Spurscast The original Spurs Podcast.

Spurscast 338: Play Dates

The 2014-2015 NBA season schedule was finally released on Wednesday afternoon and, much to the delight of the paranoid portion of the fanbase, the San Antonio Spurs will open up the upcoming season at home against division rival Dallas. The 2013-14 NBA Champions will also unveil their fifth banner and dole out new hand hardware to players and coaches on October 28th.

San Antonio also recently announced the contract extension of Tony Parker and the historic addition of WNBA star Becky Hammon to the Spurs coaching staff. Paul Garcia (@PaulGarciaPS) and Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) join hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) to discuss all of this plus the conundrum of international ball and NBA players.

Spurscast 337: Enter the Doldrums

NBA Free Agency is still rolling but the feeding frenzy is well over. LeBron James has gone back home to Ohio and veteran Pau Gasol went with his “instinct” in picking Chicago over San Antonio. The postseason scene in the Western Conference looks almost untouched but figuring out the playoff contenders in the East is still as confusing as ever. And while everyone else around the NBA is wondering if Kevin Love and Andrew Wiggins will trade area codes, Spurs fans are fretting what the Spurs are going to do with the 15th and final spot on the roster. There is also the hand-wringing over whether or not Manu Ginobili is going to play summer ball if he is medically cleared from yet another lower leg injury.

Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) joins host Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) to yammer on about the long NBA summer. Welcome to the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast. (more…)

Spurscast 336: New Car, Caviar

The San Antonio Spurs have taken care of both Boris Diaw and Patty Mills with three-year deals but the name grabbing the headlines around South Texas is that of Pau Gasol. The 34-year old Spaniard is currently weighing his options but is San Antonio the top contender for his next career destination?

The Spurs have also been busy  filling their Summer League roster. Rookie Kyle Anderson is ready to make his team debut and we will playing alongside a handful of previous Spurs draft picks. Will Deshaun Thomas or Marcus Denmon make the jump to the NBA? Are there other “no-names” that will rise from the ashes a la Gary Neal style?

Spurscast 335: Refueling the Machine

Tim Duncan answered the $10.3-million dollar question earlier this week when he exercised his player option for the 2014-15 season. The upcoming season will be the 18th NBA tour of duty for the now five-time champion and possibly the future Hall of Famer’s final swan song. The biggest roster question may have been answered but the Spurs must now address Patty Mills, Boris Diaw, and Matt Bonner in the pending free agency.

The San Antonio Spurs drafted UCLA’s Kyle Anderson with the 30th pick in last night’s NBA draft. Plenty of experts heaped praise again on San Antonio for yet another steal but your hosts, Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023), shamefully had to Google him like common folk…

Spurscast 334: Cinco

The San Antonio Spurs are your 2014 NBA Champions. Feels good to read that sentence for the 100th time, doesn’t it?

The Spurs put on the most dominant Finals performance in NBA history while capturing their fifth NBA title, the first San Antonio championship since 2007. It has been an incredible and memorable season for both players and fans alike, a season fueled by the Finals nightmare of 2013. Redemption is a rare opportunity and the Spurs put on an incredible show in their second chance against the Miami Heat.

Spurscast 333: Two in the Box, Ready to Go

The San Antonio Spurs now hold a familiar 2-1 advantage in the 2014 NBA Finals after trucking the Miami Heat 111-92 in the American Airlines Center this past Tuesday. Kawhi Leonard led the Spurs with a career best performance with 29 points (10-13 FG) while also limiting and frustrating the best basketball player on the planet, LeBron James. It was an incredible performance from San Antonio but the Miami Heat will not shrink away from the pressure of a deficit. Game 4 is tonight (8:00 PM CST) and the Spurs will need to bring every bit of energy they put on display the other night.

Tim Duncan and the Spurs are now in their first consecutive NBA Finals appearance but they’ll be facing the super team that broke their hearts in 2013. Is payback all but certain for San Antonio? Or does LeBron James and the Miami Heat have a locked-in date with three-peat history?
