With a Game 7 tonight between the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers, the team from Texas will need a hero to step up in crunch time with advancement into the second round or elimination and the possible end of an era near. This task will have to be shouldered by Boris Diaw, a […]
Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard is showing he’s not just a one trick defensive pony. During game 3 of the first round, the San Antonio Spurs defensive ace showed his offensive athleticism (and huge hands) after catching an alley oop lob from teammate Danny Green. We know Leonard has his moments in transition, […]
The San Antonio Spurs have a huge problem against the Los Angeles Clippers and it’s 6’10” power forward Blake Griffin. His 26 point and 12 rebound game (along with some posters with Aron Baynes) proved to be too much for San Antonio’s frontcourt rotation and might be a lingering problem for the team if they […]
After the crushing defeat of the San Antonio Spurs by the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night in Game 1 of the playoffs, it has left many to wonder what adjustments the Spurs might need to make in Game 2 in Los Angeles.

The San Antonio Spurs have clinched the 6th seed in a tough Western Conference and will face against the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round.

When the San Antonio Spurs battled the Houston Rockets on Friday night, we all knew the game was going to be a hard fought and possibly ugly meeting between the two.

The NBA playoffs are around the corner and the majority of the Western Conference seedings are still up for grabs with the exception of the top seed held by the Golden State Warriors.

We all know Manu Ginobili can pass, but did we know he can pass this ridiculously in one of the most simplest basketball plays ever in the pick-and-roll?
The San Antonio Spurs and Ginobili have made this play the staple of their offense for years and there’s just a handful of teams that can pull it off with such ease. As far as the play goes, we know how the play will develop.
A Spurs big man will set a pick for Ginobili as the ball-handler, and either fake the pick, or bump Manu’s defender to cause space to create the play.
After that, it’s all Ginobili’s genius as one of the most underrated passers in the game. As you’ll see, Manu just needs some daylight after the pick and his instinct kicks in on how he’ll deliver the pass. Whether it’s a simple bounce pass or a pass between someone’s legs, it’s a sight to watch for any basketball purist. Check out the video of Ginobili’s brilliant passing below. (more…)

With free agency at a stand still with the much rumored destinations of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, there’s one name that’s often mentioned among contenders that will come cheaper (maybe way cheaper than some suspect at a mid-level exception price) in power forward/center Pau Gasol. Gasol is coming into this offseason from an impressive […]
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from free agency so far this summer, it’s this – the league isn’t adapting to the NBA champions. The San Antonio Spurs have secured the main core of players from their championship run to return to defend their title next season and the rest of the teams in the […]
The NBA Finals have been decided and Kawhi Leonard helped lead his San Antonio Spurs to a championship after being named Finals MVP.

The Los Angeles Lakers were trying to create a roster to bring some “Showtime” back to Los Angeles in the 2012-2013 season. With Dwight Howard and Steve Nash in place to join Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Metta World Peace in the starting lineup, the expectations were over the top for this team. They were […]
The San Antonio Spurs were coming off a disappointing Game 2 loss in the NBA Finals to the Miami Heat and lost homecourt advantage.
