NBA Draft: Arizona forward Grant Jerrett works out for Spurs

Remember two years ago when Cory Joseph declared for the NBA Draft after one year at Texas?  Everyone was really confused why he would do that so early.  Surely he wasn't going to be a first round pick.  Joseph's decision paid off when the San Antonio Spurs selected Joseph with the second to last pick […]

Report: Spurs talking Thomas Robinson trade with Rockets (Update)

NBA Draft: French prospect Livio Jean-Charles on Spurs’ radar

With the NBA Finals over (as well as the San Antonio Spurs' season), it's hard to remember the NBA Draft is just a few days away.  While the San Antonio Spurs are now preparing for next season, there have obviously been other things keeping Gregg Popovich, and to a lesser extent, R.C. Buford's attention. Aside […]

NBA Finals: Game 6 a body blow, not a backbreaker for Spurs

"Ahh, I was wondering what would break first, your spirit or your body." Bane, The Dark Knight Rises. Sorry, The Dark Knight Rises as been on HBO a lot the last couple of days, so that quote has been on my mind.  The San Antonio Spurs may be broken.  Their spirit may be broken from […]

San Antonio Spurs 2011 draftee Adam Hanga's future in Europe has been up in the air since his season ended.  His contract with Assigna Manressa is up and Hanga won't be re-signing with the team.  It looks like Hanga has found a new team and the name of that team is one Spurs fans are […]

NBA Finals: This is a weird series

It started off as we thought it might.  Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are key in a San Antonio Spurs win while LeBron James had a triple double in a Game 1 that could've gone either way.  Then things got weird.  First the Spurs got crushed by the Miami Heat, which isn't too weird, but […]


NBA Finals: Tim Duncan starts slow, finishes big in Game 1 win

Earlier in his career, when head coach Gregg Popovich opted to bring Manu Ginobili off the bench in favor of less talented players like Brent Barry and Michael Finley the saying went "It doesn't matter who starts the game, but who finishes it."  In honor of Tim Duncan's Game 1 of the the 2013 Finals […]

NBA Finals: Chris Bosh the biggest non-LeBron concern

Aside from probably three-point shooting, any time we say "so and so is the biggest concern for the San Antonio Spurs" over the next couple of weeks, that "so and so" is going to be LeBron James.  He is the Heat's best scorer, passer, rebounder, defender and even all-around shooter.  Containing him is likely not […]

The NBA Draft is just 24 days away and the San Antonio Spurs continue to work out players projected as late first round to mid second round picks.  However, instead of bringing in another swingman, the Spurs worked out Murray State point guard Isaiah Canaan.

Sorry everyone else, but this one is for Timmy

With apologies to every other player on the San Antonio Spurs roster, every fan and even Gregg Popovich, this Finals run isn't about them.  It's not even about Tony Parker, who has been brilliant this postseason, especially against the Memphis Grizzlies.  No this run to the Finals is about Tim Duncan and the quest to […]


Conley: Parker’s playmaking puts defense ‘at its mercy’

The first two games served as a reminder that the Spurs' offense is a Tony Parker first offense and that when he's aggressive, it's a really good offense.  Game 2 was a prime example of how Parker, despite having a dreadful shooting night, stayed aggressive and found his teammates on his way to 18 assists.  […]


Spurs take out Randolph, Grizzlies offense sputters

Over the last three seasons, the Memphis Grizzlies offense has never really hummed, but it doesn't sputter much either because of the work Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph do inside.  This was never more evident than in the 2011 playoffs, when Randolph shredded the San Antonio Spurs as Memphis eliminated the silver and black in […]

Spurs interview DeShaun Thomas, fail to get his number

Ever ask someone for a number and get turned down? (Looks around, looks around) Yeah me either, but it happens all the time.  Turns out it can also happen to basketball teams who want to talk to draft prospects.  According to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal, the San Antonio Spurs interviewed Ohio State […]


Spurs win rebound game for first time in series

“There is no stop until the board is secured.” That was Gregg Popovich after Tuesday's Game 5 victory over the Golden State Warriors.  It was the first time in the series and only second time in the playoffs they've won the rebounding battle.  This series has been particularly rough the San Antonio Spurs have allowed […]

Leonard’s defense on Curry key in comeback

So that was kind of weird what happened in Game 1.  It's not every day you see a 16-point deficit turn in to a double overtime victory. Still, that happened and while there wasn't one silver bullet that sparked the comeback, it did help that Stephen Curry stopped making shots in the final six minutes […]


Solving the Warriors small ball

The most interesting aspect of the Golden State Warriors' first round victory over the Denver Nuggets was their inability to handle the Warriors going small with Harrison Barnes.  Despite having the personnel to handle that particular line up, it proved difficult for a couple of reasons.  First, it's tough to scheme against a line up […]
