Spurscast #261: News of the day, Mahinmi dominating at life

Don’t check your iTunes feed or double check the date, yes we are back with yet another Spurscast, but we’re trying something new. In an effort to add more multimedia content to our site, we are trying out 1-2 shorter form versions of the podcast during the week to compliment our much longer regular show.

These shows will typically be less than 10 minutes long, although we went a little longer on this first one. We’ll either be bringing you some of the latest San Antonio Spurs news that is usually old and stale by the time the regular show comes around or will have interviews with different guests and any time big news comes around, we’ll be sure to do that through these shows as well.

In this first try, we talked about the surprise of Tiago Splitter signing with Valencia and the nice chunk of change he’s making from the signing. Jeff and I both think Nando De Colo could benefit from the signing and Valencia may make some noise in Group D of Eurocup.

We also discussed Tony Parker winning an award for his Eurocup play. In his first game against Valencia, he scored 34 points for Asvel and left his defender looking for a doctor to perform ankle replacement surgery.

Aside from some other small news bits, we ended by talking about former Spur Ian Mahinmi and the video of him kissing his biceps.

Episode 262 will likely be up by Monday and that’ll be our regular show.
