Spurscast #172: Curtis Who?


Two podcasts in one week…and in the offseason. But we wouldn’t have it any other way as Michael and Jeff recap David Robinson Tribute Week, talk about Richard Jefferson’s dislocated thumb and answer the question, “Curtis who?” about Curtis Jerrells, the Spurs newest signing out of Baylor.

To give Spurs fans a better idea of who Jerrells is, we brought in Robert Villarreal, or fireb0x on twitter. Robert followed Jerrells’ career at Baylor and tells us if he has a shot at winning a roster spot or is Austin-bound.

To end the show, we go through some quick notes including a French National Team update, list Ball Don’t Lie’s Best Sixth Men of the Decade and Peter Kim of The No Look Pass takes us back and talks about a former Spur who made a great impact on the franchise. No not David Robinson or Sean Elliott. It was Bill Curley who was traded to Detroit for Elliott who went on to hit the Memorial Day Miracle and helped the Spurs to their first NBA Championship.

Note: As you may have noticed, we decided to take a bit of a break this week coming off of the tribute week, but we’ll be back at it again next week.
