Great, or Just Really Good?

Words are a simple commodity. If we inflate them, they lose their value. I wish I came up with that line (it was author Jess Walter). I wish I had the mastery of that kind of prose, because the phrase is so true. There is no such thing as a great taco. No pizza should […]

Spurscast 361: Fundamental Onions

In Game Two of this San Antonio – Los Angeles series, Tim Duncan transformed into an omniscient ball of light and carried the Spurs to a 1-1 series tie. The Big Fundamental tallied 28 points (14-23 FG) along with 11 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals. San Antonio had an incredibly disappointing outing in the opening game and was carried to victory in the second match by Mr. Duncan and the duo of Kawhi Leonard and Patty Mills. Homecourt advantage has swung but are the Spurs doomed by the bum legs of Tony Parker?

Bruce Bowen’s list of top five defenders is indefensible

ESPN’s Chris Broussard and former San Antonio Spurs player Bruce Bowen gave their list of top five defenders in the NBA and a certain Rudy Gobert was not happy about it. He brought back the tweets from earlier in March and he’s probably not happy considering he’s been on a tear the past few months.
