Spurscast 345: Kingslayer

King James fell once again to Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, making it four straight losses going back to Game Three of the 2014 NBA Finals. LeBron James fumbled away a last second opportunity, giving the Spurs seventh win of the season. Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) look back at the Cleveland game and share banter on the injury woes that are still hamstringing the defending champions on both ends of the court.

Spurscast 344: Automatons

After dropping three of their first five games, the San Antonio Spurs steadied the ship with back-to-back wins over the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors. The Spurs continue their early West Coast road trip today in Hollywood where they’ll take on Kobe Bean Bryant and the hysterically awful Los Angeles Lakers.

The Spurs will also visit the surprising Sacramento Kings on Saturday before returning back to the AT&T Center for a just single home game. They’ll have to hop another Southwest flight to Cleveland in order to take on the new-look Cavaliers.

Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) rejoins hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) to talk Spurs, the joke that is rest-gate, Tim Duncan’s awesomeness, and more on the one and only Spurscast The original San Antonio Spurs Podcast.

Spurscast 342: Western Conference Preview

The San Antonio Spurs begin their title defense on October 28th against their I-35 rival, the Dallas Mavericks. But are the Silver & Black still the best squad in the Western Conference? Will the West see a new top dog? Does Kevin Durant’s injury sink the Oklahoma City Thunder’s title chances? Will the entire Southwest division make the post-season dance? Will Melanie ever discover Todd’s true feelings for her!?!?

Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) joins hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) to run through the teams and divisions of the incredibly tough Western Conference. If you haven’t done so already, check out our preview of the Eastern Conference as well (spoiler: The East is still awful).

Spurscast 341: Eastern Conference Preview

Are the reborn Cleveland Cavaliers an instant lock to win the Eastern Conference? Will the conference ever manage to shed it’s pathetic “Leastern” nickname? While the tough Western Conference remains pretty much unchanged from the previous year, the East has witnessed a litany of moves. And with the 2014-15 NBA Season rapidly approaching, many questions still linger with both the top tier and the bottom feeders of the East coast.

Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) joins hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) to run through the teams and divisions of the volatile Eastern Conference.

Spurscast 339: Fan-isode

We’re still weeks away from the first wave of NBA life, but there is still plenty of action to discuss. Actually, there isn’t. Outside of FIBA Worldcup action, offseason news has been almost nonexistent and there is only so much time the topic of training camp bodies can fill. That and we’re also not looking to squeeze blood from a stone just on guys that you will likely never see on the Spurs’ regular season roster. So last week we came to you on our hands and knees, begging for questions to be sent our way.

This episode is all on you, listeners. Welcome to the first ever Spurscast Fan-isode. Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) take on the questions mailed in by San Antonio Spurs fans to the one and only Spurscast The original Spurs Podcast.

Spurscast 338: Play Dates

The 2014-2015 NBA season schedule was finally released on Wednesday afternoon and, much to the delight of the paranoid portion of the fanbase, the San Antonio Spurs will open up the upcoming season at home against division rival Dallas. The 2013-14 NBA Champions will also unveil their fifth banner and dole out new hand hardware to players and coaches on October 28th.

San Antonio also recently announced the contract extension of Tony Parker and the historic addition of WNBA star Becky Hammon to the Spurs coaching staff. Paul Garcia (@PaulGarciaPS) and Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) join hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) to discuss all of this plus the conundrum of international ball and NBA players.

Talking Paul George injury, Team USA, defending the Spurs and more on the Crossover Chronicles Podcast

Project Spurs own Jeff Garcia joined Phillip Rossman-Reich of Bloguin’s own Crossover Chronicles to discuss the horrible injury to Pacers’ Paul George. What does it mean for the future of Team USA? Will this stop top-tier players from representing the US?

Also on the show, the duo discussed the top teams in the East and West. Did the Bulls move up in the East? Will the Pelicans become a postseason team?

All this and much more including Jeff defending the Spurs in Phil’s NBA offseason Power Rankings where Phil doesn’t think the Spurs are the best in the West. (more…)

Spurscast 337: Enter the Doldrums

NBA Free Agency is still rolling but the feeding frenzy is well over. LeBron James has gone back home to Ohio and veteran Pau Gasol went with his “instinct” in picking Chicago over San Antonio. The postseason scene in the Western Conference looks almost untouched but figuring out the playoff contenders in the East is still as confusing as ever. And while everyone else around the NBA is wondering if Kevin Love and Andrew Wiggins will trade area codes, Spurs fans are fretting what the Spurs are going to do with the 15th and final spot on the roster. There is also the hand-wringing over whether or not Manu Ginobili is going to play summer ball if he is medically cleared from yet another lower leg injury.

Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) joins host Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) to yammer on about the long NBA summer. Welcome to the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast. (more…)

Spurscast 336: New Car, Caviar

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 busy  filling 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?

Project Spurs’ Paul Garcia interviewed on Ticket760

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.

Spurscast 335: Refueling the Machine

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 drafted UCLA’s Kyle Anderson with the 30th pick in last night’s NBA draft. Plenty of experts heaped praise again on San Antonio for yet another steal but your hosts, Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023), shamefully had to Google him like common folk…
