Frontcourt Report: Let’s Dance

Russell Westbrook is the best in the NBA and it’s not even debatable. The way he moves is electrifying, and you could make an argument that he’s the most explosive we’ve ever seen. He’s pretty good at basketball too, but man I love Russell Westbrook’s dancing. I would pay good money to see a dance-off between […]

As far as the San Antonio Spurs are concerned, the first round is over. They took care of business in four games against a depleted Memphis Grizzlies squad, and they will move on to face an Oklahoma City Thunder team that dispatched Dirk’s Mavs after five chippy games.

About A Series: Patty Mills’ play vs. Grizzlies

Just before the NBA Playoffs kicked off, San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills was having a tough month shooting the basketball from the outside in April, where he played in the final seven games of the season and he only connected on 29.6% of his 3.9 three pointers per game. It should be noted, Mills, […]


SPURSCAST EPISODE 398- Nothing Compares 2 You

The Playoffs roll on. The Spurs roll on. San Antonio keeps their momentum as they await a second round matchup- presumably against Oklahoma City. The only thing that could overshadow something as big as the NBA Playoffs, is actually something really small. 5’2” to be exact. Prince Rogers Nelson died this week at the age of 57. We affectionately reflect on his life, and his impact on ours.



Old Man Riverwalk turns 40

One day after the Spurs closed out their sweep of the Memphis Grizzlies, Tim Duncan is celebrating his 40th birthday, making the greatest power forward of all time officially over the hill. Duncan has spent almost half of his life in a Spurs jersey. 19 seasons in San Antonio, 15 times named an NBA All-Star […]


Happy 40th, Tim Duncan

On Sunday night in Memphis, Tim Duncan tied former teammate Robert Horry for second most playoff victories of all time (155). The next day Old Man Riverwalk celebrated his 40th birthday, probably by practicing his bank shot and eating pre-chewed carrot cake. Seriously though, Duncan has been the face of the Spurs since the Clinton administration. […]


Austin Spurs Update: 4/25/16

It’s pretty obvious by the picture we used for this post that the Los Angeles D-Fenders had something to celebrate this week, as the purple and gold managed to knock off the Austin Spurs in the D-League Western Conference Finals. The only way it could be more obvious is if we slapped a couple of […]


Frontcourt Report 3: Decisive Victory

When the Project Spurs staff was polled about opening round predictions, the only disagreement seemed to be whether or not the Memphis Grizzlies would be able to steal a game in the ‘Grindhouse.’ The two games in Memphis seemed more competitive than the first two in San Antonio, but one of the most lopsided playoff series in […]

Spurs Frontcourt Playoff Report 2

Charles Barkley joked that Reggie Miller “might be the worst analyst on television” after Miller suggested during Game 2 that the beaten up Grizzlies would play better against San Antonio in the Grindhouse in Memphis. Many of us were probably just as surprised as the Chuckster that Reggie’s prediction came true in Game 3, but unlike […]

Scouting Spurs’ Round Two Opponent

With the San Antonio Spurs holding a firm 2-0 lead in their series against the Memphis Grizzlies, winning both games by 25 plus points, it seems more than likely the Spurs will be advancing to the second round. Their next opponent will be the winner of the series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the […]


Wingin’ It: First Round Games 1 and 2

Through the first two games Memphis has done nothing to disprove my theory that they are the worst NBA playoff basketball team of all time. Again, this is no fault of their own, as injuries to their top two players (Mike Conley and Marc Gasol) and a handful of others have decimated the roster and […]
