Pacers’ Roy Hibbert leans on San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan quite heavily. He has trained with Duncan on numerous occasions and now it seems Hibbert wants to dig deeper and learn the ins and outs of the Spurs’ ball movement.
At the San Antonio Spurs Media Day, Tim Duncan said he was hesitant on re-signing with the Spurs but ultimately decided to giving it another go in silver and black. But what led to his decision to return? No. 21 sat with Sirius XM’s “The Starting Lineup” and weighed in on what led him to […]
The fine folks over at Nice Kicks were at the 2014 San Antonio Spurs media day where they were able to find out which Spur is wearing what brand of kicks. From PEAK, Air Jordan, Under Armor to adidas, here is a sample of who was wearing what at media day:
Because he’s soo smooth! Legendary musician Santana recently poured his heart out about his favorite team – the San Antonio Spurs.

It will be a special opening night of the 2014-15 NBA season for the San Antonio Spurs as they will receive their 2014 championship rings and see their 2014 NBA title banner be raised to the rafters at the AT&T Center.

First, San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan came to the defense of Hawks’ (and former Spur) Danny Ferry’s alleged racist comments towards Luol Deng and now another former teammate of Ferry in San Antonio – Kevin Willis – is also coming to Danny’s aid. Willis, who won a title with Ferry in 2003 with San Antonio, […]
The San Antonio Spurs may have kicked off the start of training camp but their foreign prospect, Davis Bertans, is also hard at work for Spanish team Laboral.
In the video below, a scout is giving his evaluation of Davis in Spanish and things said are “He’s really tall,” “He’s a different player,” “Passes well,” and “Understands the game.”
Those words should make the Spurs coaching staff and fans assured the team has a budding star overseas. (more…)
Like Tim! If I can be like Tim! That’s exactly what 76ers’ Joel Embiid is proclaiming now that he is in the NBA. Speaking with the media recently, Joel revealed he is looking to pattern his game after San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan including copying Tim’s go-to move, the bank-shot.
The 2014-15 San Antonio Spurs training camp has officially kicked off which means rookie Kyle Anderson will get his first extended time on the court facing proven NBA veterans.
However, before Kyle laced it up on the Spurs training camp court, he tested his mettle in the offseason against some of the best NBA talent including Warriors’ All-Star forward David Lee.
Using his length and solid footwork, Anderson found himself defending Lee one-on-one and was able to strip the ball from him which led to two points for his team. (more…)
On this brand new Spurs Roundtable powered by Project Spurs, the panel of host Jeff Garcia and Aaron Preine discuss the kick off of the San Antonio Spurs training camp with media day. And though Aaron thought it was uneventful, there were comments from Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili that got people talking.
For Duncan it was how close he was to retiring after last season and for Ginobili, it was how much he was still miffed at the Spurs for not letting him play for Team Argentina at the 2014 FIBA World Cup this summer.
All this and much more including Aron Baynes re-signing and a special Easter Egg photo at the very end of the show. Do not turn off the video at all! (more…)
After a long summer of uncertainty, the San Antonio Spurs re-signed center Aron Baynes to a one-year deal. With the move, it means the entire roster from last season’s title team is back and the Spurs are hoping it’ll mean another trip to the NBA Finals and a shot at finally repeating as champs. Being […]
Over the summer the San Antonio Spurs added a scientist. An applied sports scientist to their team to be exact. Xavi Schelling was added to the team’s medical staff to ensure the players are fresh and to try to avoid injuries. And considering the team’s core (Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili) aren’t young […]
San Antonio Spurs’ Cory Joseph had the 2014 Larry O’Brien with him in Canada as part of the “Trophy Tour.”
Cory spoke with 1250 ESPN San Antonio’s “The Blitz” at Media Day and pretty much revealed what he did when the trophy made its way to Toronto.
For example, with the trophy in hand, Cory took it to meet the Stanley Cup (the NHL championship trophy) where the pair hit it off and showed it off to the locals in Toronto where he says no one knew what it was.
Aside from that, Joseph also spoke on his offseason workouts, weighed in on the entire team coming back, and said he is ready for the challenge of a new season. (more…)
Apparently Tony Parker isn’t the only member of the San Antonio Spurs to make tough trick shots look easy.
Manu Ginobili stars in an Argentinian commercial for insurance company “Groupo Asegurador” where he is pitching the company’s services and spinning a CGI-basketball on his fingertip.
However, there’s no CGI needed when a real basketball is in Manu’s hands and ends the commercial making a behind-the-back shot no where near the basket. (more…)
The City of San Antonio is once again hosting the Alamo City Comic Con which means people are showing up dressed as their favorite comic book character. Whether it be a fan dressed up as “Superman” or “Darth Vader,” one thing is for sure, any comic con will bring out the nerd inside anyone. Take […]
