Shane Battier thinks the Spurs’ Big Three have more sway than Pop

Now that Shane Battier is retired, he has a lot of time to do things outside of basketball. Things like play-by-play for ESPN’s coverage of college basketball, acting as an analyst for ESPN in-studio shows, and attending and speaking at the MIT Sloan Sports Conference. While at that conference, he emphasized that coaching isn’t as important […]

Tony Parker is making a very bold prediction

After the San Antonio Spurs dropped a bad game on their Rodeo Road Trip to the Utah Jazz, Tony Parker was making a rather bold prediction. Whether he was delirious from the loss or his recent string of inconsistency, Parker thought the Spurs could still get to the top half of the playoff bracket! Excuse […]

C.J. McCollum has some nice words for Tony Parker

You already saw Tyson Chandler’s post on The Players’ Tribune about how awesome San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan is, but now it’s a point guard’s turn to get some praise. Portland’s C.J. McCollum took to the website and praised Tony Parker’s now-classic mid-range jumper and how he finishes at the rim.

Tyson Chandler recognizes Duncan’s greatness

A lot of San Antonio Spurs fans don’t like Tyson Chandler because of his time with the Mavericks and the Hornets (when they were in New Orleans and OKC before the Thunder), but he has a lot of respect for the living legend that is Tim Duncan. He wrote an article for The Players’ Tribune […]

Austin Daye update: he’s still alive!

Some people might think that former San Antonio Spurs player Austin Daye fell off the face of the earth when the Spurs waived him in mid-January.

Not only did they waive him, but they did it a week after he put up a 22 point and 10 rebound game.

Well, no worries because he’s not bitter at all. (more…)

Amar’e Stoudemire is lacing up his boots for Dallas

After being officially waived by the New York Knicks on Monday, Amar’e Stoudemire will be headed to Dallas to try and compete for an NBA title. After signing a five-year, $100 million deal with the Knicks in 2010 Stoudemire wasn’t quite the player he was in Phoenix and some of that had to do with back […]

Gregg Popovich is still at the All-Star Game in spirit

Just because San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich isn’t at the All-Star game doesn’t mean his presence won’t be felt.

The two coaches of the All-Star Game are Popovich disciples (or in Kerr’s case, a player) so he’s really at the game.

Check out this interview that NBA TV’s Vince Cellini did with Mike Budenholzer and Steve Kerr. (more…)

Tim Duncan does not care one bit about style

If you follow San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan at all (not on social media because he isn’t there) you know that he doesn’t really follow any style that’s taken place in the last decade. While he was at All-Star weekend in New York City, he was asked this question.

Cory Joseph is a big fan of the Coyote

San Antonio Spurs guard Cory Joseph really likes playing for San Antonio, but he might be a little more comfortable just rooting them during timeouts and on the sideline. What do I mean? Well, maybe this picture will explain it.

Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

Tim Duncan and the Spurs almost didn’t happen

Mark Montieth of Pacers.com asked San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich a few questions about the 1997 draft that got Tim Duncan and eventually helped Popovich get his 1,000th win that happened to come against the Indiana Pacers. Scot Pollard was apparently a serious option at the time — he ended up “dropping” to the […]

Phil Jackson supports a four-point shot in the NBA

Phil Jackson is generally thought of as a smart dude, especially since he was a good enough coach to win 11 titles. Well, he’s not really helping himself with his newest idea. He would endorse a four-point line that would sit a few feet behind the current three-point line. Despite wanting to keep running the […]
