Gregg Popovich received presidential votes in San Antonio, remains the candidate we need

Joke write-in votes are a staple of every election, from student council races up through the presidential election. The 2016 race, though, may prove the peak of the form, thanks to a more widespread dissatisfaction with the mainstream candidates. Bexar County, in Texas, is a prime example. It’s made up primarily by San Antonio, and as you might imagine, people there had a few...

The Spurs should rest their old guys even more than they already do

The young guys are good enough that if a veteran is hurting or tired, he doesn’t need to play. So far this year, Kyle Anderson hasn’t played as much as he (or we) might’ve expected. He’s been stuck as the fifth wing in the rotation after Jonathon Simmons leapfrogged him. But on Tuesday at Minnesota he had his best overall outing of the season with 11 points, 6 rebounds and...

The Spurs are dealing with their growing pains

Win streak, check. Within striking distance of the Warriors, check. Incorporating 7 new players, check. All of the above even with lots to still work on, double check.

(Aside from the second half of the Timberwolves game, that...

Danny Green’s Defensive Importance

Over the course of NBA history, several ‘player archetypes’ have developed. Many times, the origin of these archetypes are simply created when a large group of players at a particular position play a certain style. One of the most common, most well-known, and easiest to identify of these archetypes is the ‘3-and-D’ wing. Players that classify as 3-and-D wings are usually...

Stephen Jackson blasts Pop for ‘disrespect’ that got him waived

The world didn’t necessarily know the full story behind the oddly-timed release, but coach Gregg Popovich works in mysterious ways. Jackson, however, just decided to shed...

The San Antonio Spurs are off to a good start for the season.

Spurs to retire Tim Duncan’s jersey in ceremony next month

Future Hall of Fame big man Tim Duncan retired from the NBA after 19 seasons this past summer. The 14-time All-Star and five NBA champion did so without as much as a press conference to call his own.
