Daniel Strickland (@DS_SpursDynasty) is our founder and publisher. He grew up in San Antonio and graduated from John Marshall High School. He holds a BA in Literature from Southwest Texas State University (Go Bobcats!) and completed graduate studies in comparative literature at San Francisco State University. He’s been an avid Spurs fan since the 1978-79 NBA season*. In addition to launching SpursDynasty in 2005, Daniel has created other sites, including: FestivalFreak (music), GreenDan (environment) and TestPattern.org (politics and culture). His next project will combine his interests in sports, music, and politics.
Jeff Koch (@JK_SpursDynasty) is our senior analyst. Jeff is a musician — who, like most musicians, holds down a menial day job — and writer living in Portland. Jeff holds a BA in Literature, Science, and the Arts from The University of Iowa. He has toured nationally and currently performs and records with a diverse range of groups (including Pilar French, Jake Oken-Berg, The Beautiful Train Wrecks, and Scott Gallegos). Along with his writing duties for SpursDynasty, Jeff also serves as the Cultural Critic for Ben’s Ten, a monthly e-zine and blog devoted to health, creativity, and spirituality. In 2007, he self-published a collection of stories and reflections he wrote while touring with Garth Michael McDermott.
Stephen Hale (@thehalestone) is our social media specialist. An avid Spurs fan since birth, Stephen left his South Texas home in 2008 to enlist in the US Navy. He currently serves in broadcasting and journalism at the American Forces Network in Riverside, California. He lives with his wife and son, awaiting his separation from service in 2016, when he hopes to find work in the communications field. During his time in the Navy, he has covered such events such as the earthquake in Haiti, the inaugural Carrier Classic basketball game aboard an aircraft carrier, and most recently the 2014 Grammys and Oscars events for AFN. Stephen discovered SpursDynasty.com while deployed to the Middle East. He visited the site daily for updates and info about the Spurs, since he couldn’t watch the games. He began writing for us from time to time and now is a part of our team. He is passionate about the Spurs, the bass guitar and writing, so he fits right in. Stephen will graduate in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies from California Baptist University.
Bramlet Abercrombie is our senior satirist and a co-founder. Even to himself, Bramlet is a mystery with a chewy enigma center wrapped inside greasy riddle strips and smothered in cryptic sauce, though he is probably not nearly as tasty as that description suggests. He does have good taste in basketball teams, however, and thus can often be found indoctrinating the infidel masses in Spurs orthodoxy.

*Much has changed since 1978, when the Spurs played in HemisFair Arena, Doug Moe was head coach, and the Spurs’ opponents included the Seattle Supersonics, Washington Bullets, San Diego Clippers, New Orleans Jazz and Kansas City Kings. But in some ways, 1978 was a lot like today. The Spurs were nine deep that year: Larry Kenon, George Gervin, James Silas, Billy Paultz, Mike Gale, Mark Olberding, Mike Green, Coby Dietrick and Allan Bristow. Gervin lead the league in scoring (29.6 ppg), the Spurs finished 1st in the Central Division and lost in the Eastern Conference Finals (4-3) to the Washington Bullets, who in turn lost in the Finals (1-4) to the Supersonics.
