Video: Meet the crew of ‘Spuran Spuran’

I don’t even know where to begin with this but if you ever wanted to see Aron Baynes in full KISS makeup, complete with his key-tar, well, here you go.

Check out the hilarious video of Bonner and his teammates talking about their musical influences (like Leonard being influenced by Metallica members), Mills on a tiny guitar bragging about music labels after the group, and the Coyote in Michael Jackson “Thriller” red-jacket. (more…)

Tim Duncan named Western Conference Player of the Week

From Spurs.com

The NBA today announced that San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan was named the Western Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday, April 6, through Sunday, April 12. Boston’s Isiah Thomas was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

This is Duncan’s 23rd time earning Player of the Week honors, which is tied for fourth all-time (Karl Malone and Allen Iverson) since the award was established prior to the 1979-80 season. He becomes the second-oldest player in NBA history to receive the award behind Reggie Miller who was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week on April 3, 2005 at the age of 39.

Duncan averaged 17.3 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.25 blocks, 2.5 assists and 1.50 blocks while shooting .650 (26-40) from the field as the Spurs went 4-0 for the week, extending their win streak to 11 games.

Video: Questionable foul calls against Spurs vs. Rockets

Rockets fans may be up in arms about San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan’s block on James Harden, calling it a foul (even though the NBA ruled it wasn’t) but Spurs fans may have the bigger gripe with the way the refs were calling fouls on the silver and black.

Upon replay, Drexler claims Duncan fouled Harden on the arm and didn’t get the ball at all while Worrell agreed saying Duncan hammered the MVP candidate. (more…)
