It’s that time of year again. A month filed with training camp, Media Day, and a series of eight scrimmages to figure out starting line-ups, work on play sequences, and give each player on the team a healthy amount of playing time to show the coaching staff their abilities in a realistically-paced environment. Granted, there are plenty of reasons to be excited (or even anxious) about this year’s preseason. That…

During Media Day, much attention was paid to Coach Popovich mentioning the absence of a key member of the 2014 championship squad. It began with a joke regarding the weight this teammate was expected to have gained during the offseason. This was followed by a hilarious Instagram reply by the player in question. Given our recent expose about Boris Diaw being the only Spur to not attend this year’s training…

Is it the smirk? The subtle tip of the wine glass? Or maybe the cool, night backdrop of an undisclosed bistro? Of course not. The intrigue of this picture is the subject himself: Boris Babacar Diaw-Riffiod a.k.a. “Bobo”. If you think you know Boris, you really don’t. The man is as much an enigma on the court as he is off of it. He has the body of a post-up…

During the offseason, the Spurs acquired two interesting college players. One is known for an illusive “slo-mo” game and is compared favorably to Boris Diaw; the other is known for fearless speed off the dribble, sharp three-point shooting, and the ability to hit big shots at the end of the game. So what do you think? RESULTS For the first few days after we opened this week’s poll (Who is…

The look is complete: a short, but not quite military-cut, head of white hair is complimented by a nicely trimmed beard and new shirt of the same color. If Coach Pop is suffering from a champagne hangover, he hid it well at the 2014 Spurs Media Day. His stern eyes, open smirk of a laugh, and witty replies were all signs that our beloved coach was not abducted by extraterrestrial…

So lemme guess: You’re a Spurs fan. You’re on Twitter. You follow a couple Spurs players, but you want a little more. Maybe that Twitter account of yours isn’t “Spurs familied” up enough. No prob. Spursdynasty.com has you covered. Here is a list of some of the best current and former players to follow. So now you have no excuse.

Whoa boy. That’s the first thought you might have after switching from NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs–elevating a beautiful game to some of its prettiest heights in decades–to Las Vegas Summer League San Antonio Spurs. It’s amusing to hear the announcers refer to the teams as “The Spurs” or “The Wizards” when there is so little relationship between them. We are spoiled as Spurs fans to get to watch such…

Spurs in 5. That was my initial prognosis for the 2014 Finals. I didn’t share it because a) I believe firmly in jinxes, and; b) my prediction was based off of nothing but intuition and a glance at the calendar. Sure, I believed the Spurs were the better team and would win the series. But five games felt ambitious, even for this most ambitious of Spurs fans. No, I chose…

                               

Miami 87, San Antonio 104 Spurs win series 4-1 The demons have all been slain, the last ghost has been exorcised, the journey has drawn to its glorious close, the cycle complete: the Spurs are once again NBA Champions. After a sluggish start that revealed the Heat’s last gasp, the Spurs woke up and worked their way back into the game. After being down as many as 14 early, they…
