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…)
San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich does a lot of interviews, but it seems a rather important one slipped through the cracks. When you click that link, you’ll likely have to translate it and that’s because it’s in Italian. The interview conducted was with Corriere Della Sera, an Italian newspaper based in Milan and […]
San Antonio Spurs’ Manu Ginobili has been known to troll teammates from time to time, especially Patty Mills. Well, it seems the fun doesn’t stop as Ginobili got him with a zinger yet again to the point where Patty calls out Manu’s infamous bald spot! Patty couldn’t let him have all the fun though as […]
That might be one of the most things I have written, but people still don’t understand what the 38-year old is doing. San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan has five double-doubles in the six games he’s played so far this year. He has over 800 career double-doubles — good for third-most in NBA history — and […]
The short answer to that question? Nothing. But of course that’s not what you’re here to read. You want facts and anecdotes telling you why the San Antonio Spurs will be just fine despite their 2-3 record. A few things we can point to early in the season are injuries by Tiago Spliitter, Marco Belinelli, and […]
With the San Antonio Spurs resting five guys on their roster, rookie Kyle Anderson was bound to get in the game and get his first minutes of action. He did, but not before getting whistled for a delay of game.
He didn’t kick the ball around, he did’t throw the ball anywhere, he didn’t impede another player’s path to inbound the ball. Nope. Kyle had part of his jersey un-tucked going into the game. You read that right.
Referee Courtney Kirkland took it upon himself to put the young gun in his place and make he respected the game with that tucked in jersey! (more…)
Laker great and Hall of Famer Magic Johnson is either overly excited, playing his homer card, or has completely lost touch with reality. Mr. Showtime himself is saying the Lakers are a good team. They are sitting at 0-5 and will be lucky to get to 30 wins in the West the way they are […]
In an interview with NBA.com’s Sekou Smith, San Antonio’s own Boris Diaw talked to the writer about the major differences between growing up playing ball in Europe and in the United States. Smith’s lengthy and in-depth article consisted of interviews with other guys like Pau Gasol and Nicolas Batum, but Diaw had some of the […]
In an interview with Ian Court of The Guardian, San Antonio Spurs forward Matt Bonner talked about some of the usual things he gets interviewed about like sandwiches, winning the NBA Championship, and New England (where he’s from). However, when asked specifically about how Becky Hammon was introduced to the team, it brought back a memory […]
DeAndre Jordan of the L.A. Clippers would love to see him and his team in the NBA Finals. Shoot, he’d probably take the Western Conference Finals. Either way, he’s been studying the San Antonio Spurs and how they go about their business on the court. The Clippers now have something in common with the Spurs and […]
Both of these NBA Champions are reaching the end of their careers and there was talk about both of them retiring this past offseason, but they decided to come back and attempt to do something the San Antonio Spurs have never done — repeat as champs. However, the talk revolving around them is once again […]
You read that right. Tim Duncan is the real inventor of the selfie.
It didn’t come on a cell phone and it didn’t even come on a flip camcorder. He did it back in 1997 at the NBA Draft when he was taken first overall by the San Antonio Spurs in that beautiful cream suit he wore.
You want proof? I’ve got the video! (more…)
The Portland Trailblazers are a team returning a lot of guys to their roster. They bring back the majority of their roster, if not all of it, and added key pieces like Chris Kaman and Steve Blake, who will be coming to Portland for the fourth time in his career. This is the kind of […]
If Cory Joseph wants to stay in the rotation for the San Antonio Spurs this season, he will need to be way more aggressive than he has been in the preseason. In two games, he’s only taken eight shots. As the first point guard off the bench, his job isn’t to just manage the offense, but […]
USA Today named the San Antonio Spurs their fourth-most watchable team for this upcoming NBA season. However, they were burying the real news in there. USA Today said Tim Duncan is the greatest player of this era in the NBA (which isn’t wrong by the way) and totally took a shot at Kobe Bryant in the […]
