Garnett talks about Spurs’ advantage playing at home

The San Antonio Spurs are 8-2 at home this season. No doubt that the AT&T center is one of the toughest places to visit in the NBA. Last week, after a 103-88 victory over the Boston Celtics, Celtics forward Kevin Garnett talked about how tough it is to play when you come to San Antonio. […]

Editorial: Spurs fans should judge Pop on hardwood only

On Monday, when I wrote a small post about NBA players, front office staff and owners supporting Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, I never quite expected what was coming next. San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich pledging toward President Barack Obama's campaign for re-election was a choice several others made, including former Spur Doc Rivers. […]

Manu’s injury: A blessing in disguise

Horror. Sheer terror. Uncontrollable sadness. Those are some of the feelings you may have experienced when San Antonio Spurs’ Manu Ginobili broke his left hand last night, but there is a silver lining in this cloud. To be honest, I don’t think this is necessarily a cloud at all. Honestly, how much of a chance […]


A look back at 2011

2011 was a great year for Project Spurs. It was the year we added some great staff members in Paul Garcia, Trevor Zickgraff, Humberto Cervera and Kyle Boenitz.

Week 1 in review: 3 games in 4 nights is not fun

The season started off great for the San Antonio Spurs, as they won both of their first two games at home by a combined 38 points. Then came the reality of a 66-games season. Every team is going to be challenged or even get the crap kicked out of them by lesser teams on any […]

Durant’s big shot keep Mavericks winless

As the San Antonio Spurs suffered their first loss of the season in a blowout against the Houston Rockets, there’s another team in the Southwest Division with possibly bigger troubles.

Should Spurs try to get Przybilla?

In this day of the NBA, quality big men are really hard to come by. When they’re in short supply, if someone is out there, a lot of teams will show interest. Veteran center Joel Przybilla is looking for a team to join and a number of teams think he would make a good fit. […]

Video: Manu’s highlight plays about the only good thing vs. Rockets

The San Antonio Spurs took one on the chin last night courtesy of the Houston Rockets, losing 105-85 in Houston. It was an all-around forgettable game as San Antonio shot poorly for the game (37.6%) while Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and other players had stat lines they would like to forget. However, Ginobili did provide some […]

Sean Elliott nearly retired from the NBA in 1994

In 1993, Sean Elliott was traded from the San Antonio Spurs to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Dennis Rodman. Elliott would go on and play one season with Detroit but never did quite fit in while Rodman helped the Spurs reach the playoffs but like Elliott, never did fit into the culture of the […]

Toros add Butler

Rejoice Da’Sean Butler fans, the swingman from West Virginia could still see some time with the silver and black after he was waived on December 13.

Martin’s big second quarter helps Rockets blast Spurs

“It doesn’t matter whose playing well, whose not playing well. It’s always a tough game in the eighties,” said San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan after the Spurs defeated the Los Angeles Clippers Wednesday night.

Bryant still has confidence in Lakers

The rest of the world may be doubting that the Los Angeles Lakers can compete in the Western Conference, but not Kobe Bryant. When asked about the Lakers’ 1-2 start on back-to-back-to-back games, Bryant says they “shoulda won all three.” Maybe they should have, but they didn’t. They should have been able to hold onto […]

Video: Postgame reaction from Pop, Tim, DeJuan & Manu

The San Antonio Spurs brought the up-start Los Angeles Clippers down to Earth last night with a resounding 115-90 win in San Antonio.

Conflict in Thunder huddle could mean disaster

The Oklahoma City Thunder are 3-0 and they’re probably the front-runner to represent the Western Conference in the NBA finals, but last night’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies showed they’re far from invincible.
