Many Reasons To Give Thanks


First of all allow me to say Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Hope you all have a great day with family, friends and lots of great food.

But since it is a day to give thanks, we here at Project Spurs need to remind you that although the Spurs have not gotten off to a great start of the new season, there are many reasons to give thanks to this team.  Here are a few:

Be thankful you are seeing Tim Duncan still playing and are witnessing the end of a legendary career.

Be thankful the future is secured with Tony Parker and you are about to see the beginning of his prime years.

Be thankful Manu Ginobili never had an ego and is willing to come off the bench for the betterment of the team unlike the recently retired Allen Iverson.

Be thankful other NBA team doctors and General Managers passed up on DeJuan Blair in the 2009 NBA Draft and that the Milwaukee Bucks gift wrapped Richard Jefferson to the Spurs.

Be thankful you are witnessing the budding NBA career of George Hill.

Be thankful the Spurs aren’t 0-15 like the New Jersey Nets.

Be thankful the Spurs have four NBA titles.

Be thankful there are still plenty of games left in this Spurs season for a nice turn around to the beginning of this slow start.

Be thankful you aren’t a Dallas Mavericks fan.

As you can see there are plenty of reasons to give thanks as a Spurs fan.  But we here at Project Spurs are thankful for all our fans and friends of the site. You make all this worth while.  We are thankful for your comments, visits, and loyalty. Please keep coming back. We appreciate it.
