The San Antonio Spurs have taken care of both Boris Diaw and Patty Mills with three-year deals but the name grabbing the headlines around South Texas is that of Pau Gasol. The 34-year old Spaniard is currently weighing his options but is San Antonio the top contender for his next career destination?
The Spurs have also been busyfilling their Summer League roster. Rookie Kyle Anderson is ready to make his team debut and we will playing alongside a handful of previous Spurs draft picks. Will Deshaun Thomas or Marcus Denmon make the jump to the NBA? Are there other “no-names” that will rise from the ashes a la Gary Neal style?
Injuries, rumors, and more. Welcome to the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.
Our own Paul Garcia was interviewed this morning on the Spurs offseason by Chris Duel, stepping in for Mike Taylor this week on Ticket 760.
Paul and Chris talked about Bryce Cotton joining the Spurs for Summer League and the impending free agency period.
Paul said he expects Diaw to be back with the team, and unless Patty Mills is wooed by a team with starting minutes and a starting player’s salary, he thinks there’s a good chance Mills will rejoin the silver and black.
Listen to the full interview below for more on the Spurs’ offseason and about how one Spurs player could be on his way out today.
Tim Duncan answered the $10.3-million dollar question earlier this week when he exercised his player option for the 2014-15 season. The upcoming season will be the 18th NBA tour of duty for the now five-time champion and possibly the future Hall of Famer’s final swan song. The biggest roster question may have been answered but the Spurs must now address Patty Mills, Boris Diaw, and Matt Bonner in the pending free agency.

The San Antonio Spurs are your 2014 NBA Champions. Feels good to read that sentence for the 100th time, doesn’t it?
The Spurs put on the most dominant Finals performance in NBA history while capturing their fifth NBA title, the first San Antonio championship since 2007. It has been an incredible and memorable season for both players and fans alike, a season fueled by the Finals nightmare of 2013. Redemption is a rare opportunity and the Spurs put on an incredible show in their second chance against the Miami Heat.

The San Antonio Spurs now hold a familiar 2-1 advantage in the 2014 NBA Finals after trucking the Miami Heat 111-92 in the American Airlines Center this past Tuesday. Kawhi Leonard led the Spurs with a career best performance with 29 points (10-13 FG) while also limiting and frustrating the best basketball player on the planet, LeBron James. It was an incredible performance from San Antonio but the Miami Heat will not shrink away from the pressure of a deficit. Game 4 is tonight (8:00 PM CST) and the Spurs will need to bring every bit of energy they put on display the other night.

The San Antonio Spurs won their sixth Western title over the past weekend, winning a wild Game Six in Oklahoma City. Tim Duncan and the Spurs are now in their first consecutive NBA Finals appearance but they’ll be facing the super team that broke their hearts in 2013. Is payback all but certain for San Antonio? Or does LeBron James and the Miami Heat have a locked-in date with three-peat history?
Paul Garcia (@PaulGarciaPS) joins hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) recap the ending of the Western Conference Finals and preview the pending grudge match between Miami and San Antonio. It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.
Things are a bit tense in Spurs Nation now that the series is even at 2-2. The San Antonio Spurs have looked intimidated and tentative while the Oklahoma City Thunder continue to gain momentum. Has the return of Serge Ibaka really impacted the series this much?
Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) talk Games 3 and 4 as well as the possible adjustments moving forward. Is this 2012 all over again or do the Spurs have it in them to move past this road block? It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.
Through two games of the Western Conference Finals, the San Antonio Spurs have simply obliterated the Oklahoma City Thunder by an average of 26 points. The series resumes in Oklahoma this Sunday and it will likely be a night of desperate play by the Serge Ibaka-less Thunder. The Thunder were able to conquer a 0-2 mountain back in the 2012 Conference Finals, winning four straight through physical athleticism and stifling defense. But this is 2014 and these teams are hardly comparable to the squads that clashed in the recent lockout season. This is not the same mountain.
[Update: Serge Ibaka's status has been upgraded to "day-to-day." Whether the Thunder exaggerated the grade 2 sprain or Ibaka's body just recovered quicker than anticipated, we'll never know.]
Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) take an in-depth look at the first two games and jabber on about what adjustments either team might make. It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.
It’s a rematch of the 2012 Western Conference Finals and the San Antonio Spurs are hoping to return the favor against the wounded Oklahoma City Thunder. How does the loss of Serge Ibaka impact the series? Just how important is Tony Parker’s hamstring and could it alone kill the Spurs title hopes?

The Portland Trailblazers avoided elimination on Monday night, out-hustling the San Antonio Spurs 103-92 in front of their raucous Portland crowd. The series the resumes back home today in the Alamo City but will the Spurs be able to resume their dominance on the court? The Oklahoma City and Los Angeles series appears that it may go the distance but who do the Spurs match up better against?
Also on Episode 328: The Eastern series, Donald Sterling is beyond insane, Van Gundy’s new gig, George Karl’s next gig, and the Steve Kerr media circus.

Also on Episode 327: R.C. Buford, Charles Barkley, the tired narrative of age, and the continued glorification of Aron Baynes. Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) break it all down for you. Heck, they even use crayons and small words. It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.
The San Antonio Spurs have climbed back from an unexpected 1-2 deficit and are now one victory away from moving on to the Western Conference Semi-Finals. What finally went right for the Spurs that wasn’t happening in the first three games of the series? Who is the series MVP so far and who has yet to show up to the post-season? We take another look around the Western Conference playoffs and we also try to make sense of the Bizarro Universe that exists inside DeJuan Blair’s head.
Much to almost everyone’s surprise, the San Antonio Spurs have given up home court advantage to their hated I-35 rival, the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs have looked the better of the two squads through nearly 8 quarters of play but the Spurscast still thinks this series belongs to the Spurs. The guys slam San Antonio’s early effort and take a look around the league at the other higher seeds that also can’t seem to walk and talk at the same time. Plus a short rant on why Phil Jackson doesn’t know what he is talking about.
