On May 1, the NBA announced that they were awarding the 2014-2015 NBA Executive of the Year to Bob Myers of the Golden State Warriors. I’m certainly not surprised to see this recognition bestowed upon Myers, especially when the Coach of the Year award went to Atlanta’s Mike Budenholzer instead of Warriors’ coach Steve Kerr. […]

How To Fix The Spurs Going Into Game 7

Three words to describe last night are empty, vacant, and hollow. I realize that the score was close, and even that is a worthless descriptor. The San Antonio Spurs were carried by Marco Belinelli.  In the most action he has seen this series, Belinelli made seven three-pointers, including one with less than 20 seconds to […]

Shawn Michaels Says Gregg Popovich Resembles The WWE’s Vince McMahon

When the Heart-break Kid broke onto the wrestling scene in 1988 my six-year-old head was spinning. This guy had it all. Cool entrance music, a great costume, and a very real finishing move. I’ll admit it, I thought it wasn’t scripted. And I’ve absolutely been grounded for kicking my brother in head while emulating Michaels. […]

Comparing the Spurs’ Last Two First-Round Series

In 2014, the San Antonio Spurs had one of the great first round series in recent memory.  The number-one overall ranked San Antonio Spurs were matched up against in-state rivals, the Dallas Mavericks. On the surface, the current series against Los Angeles is similarly difficult.  Through four-games they have drawn even, each team winning two […]

After a 2-2 Series Split, Are The Spurs Still In The Driver’s Seat?

I’ve heard the argument that the series is essentially starting over.  With each team winning on the other’s home court, and home court advantage back with the Clippers, it is almost as if the series is just beginning.  I don’t buy that logic.  That mode of thinking doesn’t take momentum into account.  It doesn’t consider […]
