The Admiral wants the Spurs to stay the course

Former Spur and NBA Hall of Famer David ‘The Admiral’ Robinson is not about that Costco life, because he doesn’t believe in wholesale or bulk changes. He believes that the San Antonio Spurs shouldn’t even be considering a rebuild and that word shouldn’t be in the front office’s vocabulary right now. In an interview with […]

Former Fighting Irish to get a workout with the Spurs

With the San Antonio Spurs’ season ending so early, the team is already looking to take advantage of the offseason. They are bringing in sharpshooter and two-sport athlete Pat Connaughton from Notre Dame for a workout on Friday according to Connaughton’s trainer. Connaughton could have gone pro in baseball already, but loves basketball so much that […]

Tiago Splitter could be on his way out of town

Tiago Splitter has been an important part of the San Antonio Spurs frontcourt for years now, but that doesn’t make him indispensable, not like Tim Duncan anyway. With two years and a little less than $17 million left on his contract, Splitter might be traded away from the Spurs to make room for a big […]

Popovich expects the Spurs to have their core back next season

The San Antonio Spurs just had their season ended at the hands of the Los Angeles Clippers, but that didn’t stop reporters from asking about the Big 3 and if they would be back next year. Popovich in typical Pop fashion answered their question. “People ask me about Tim [Duncan] and Manu [Ginobili] and myself […]

The Age of Aldridge could begin…somewhere in Texas

Now that the Portland Trail Blazers are out of the playoffs and in their offseason, ESPN’s Marc Stein asked the burning questions. Despite Blazer big man LaMarcus Aldridge playing below his averages in these playoffs, there is no shyness from a number of suitors who will be pursuing him hard in the offseason. However, it […]

Scottie Pippen names his all-time starting five

If you ask Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen the right question he will more often than not give a pretty good answer. Such was the case when someone asked him who his all-time starting five would be including a current member of the San Antonio Spurs. Here is his answer:

PORTLAND, OR - APRIL 25: Zach Randolph #50 of the Memphis Grizzlies and LaMarcus Aldridge #12 of the Portland Trail Blazers battle for a rebound during the first quarter in Game Three of the Western Conference quarterfinals during the 2015 NBA Playoffs at Moda Center on April 25, 2015 in Portland, Oregon.

Could Aldridge be leaving the door open to leave Portland?

There has been a lot of talk about LaMarcus Aldridge leaving the Portland TrailBlazers after this season when his contract runs up and the newest development in that saga might not be good for Portland. The big man bought his own plane ticket and left Memphis after Game 2 without the team. Blazers General Manager Neil Olshey […]

Could OKC dip into the Popovich coaching tree?

The popular names for the Oklahoma City Thunder to replace former coach Scott Brooks have been popping up all week. Names like UConn’s Kevin Ollie, Florida’s Billy Donovan, Mark Jackson, and Tom Thibodeau have been yelled loudly the past few days, but there are some whispers of other guys who could be good candidates. Iowa […]

Bruce Bowen’s list of top five defenders is indefensible

ESPN’s Chris Broussard and former San Antonio Spurs player Bruce Bowen gave their list of top five defenders in the NBA and a certain Rudy Gobert was not happy about it. He brought back the tweets from earlier in March and he’s probably not happy considering he’s been on a tear the past few months. However, […]

The Spurs knew how good LeBron would be after the 2007 Finals

Many Spurs fans will undoubtedly remember 2007 as the easiest Finals the San Antonio Spurs ever won. And a lot of you will probably say that Tim Duncan and company caught LeBron James at the right time before he got other-worldly good. You would be right and most of the Spurs knew it too. Bruce […]

Tony Parker reveals the secret to the Spurs’ March success

The San Antonio Spurs were struggling during the early part of the season with injuries racking up and turnovers being a huge issue. The Spurs of course picked it up right before the All-Star break and then went 21-4 in their last 25 games. That included double-digit wins in March.

The Clippers are clearly trying to sandbag the Spurs

The Los Angeles Clippers aren’t into “poking the bear” so to speak, but they clearly don’t know where to find the middle ground. The San Antonio Spurs certainly will take the appreciation and compliments, but most likely with a rather large grain of salt. I mean Jamal Crawford thought it would be a good idea […]
