2014-15 NBA Preview: San Antonio Spurs

Historically, the Spurs title last season is an important beacon in the time of the super-team and all-stars joining forces. It was a true ensemble squad with no one averaging more than 17 points per game or 30 minutes where the only all-star and all-NBA player was Tony Parker, who probably wouldn’t have earned those distinctions if his team weren’t so good. Ten years ago, another...

Boris Diaw Breaks Dirk Nowtizki’s Ankles, TWICE (Video)

Maybe it’s the black shoes, or opening night, but Dirk Nowitzki had no business falling like this. The ‘overweight lover’ himself, Boris Diaw, hit Nowtizki with a nice dribble-drive for the score.
