|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).

|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.|
|Andrew Jason Flores (@LosEspurz) is our Duke of Content Strategy. Though currently living in San Antonio, his appreciation of the Spurs grew when he left Texas in 1993. San Antonio's only major professional team was akin to a comfort blanket during his 21-year leave of the Lone Star state. He joined up with the Spurs Dynasty team after watching a playoff game with them during the most recent Spurs championship run. His contributions include the feature "A Picture Says It All", polls, Twitter shout-outs and the Spurs Dynasty podcast. On occasion, he is asked to write a game wrap-up. A constant reader of everything Spurs related, his season lasts 365 days a year. Although known to have "too much Spurs gear", he is constantly dreaming of the next jersey for his collection.|
|Trace Ronning (@dinna_dawg) was born in the San Francisco Bay Area, but moved to Texas at a young age and immediately became a fan of the Silver and Black (and teal, orange, and pink, as it were). He's back in the Bay Area working in the ad tech industry, while occasionally writing music as Darkehorse and contributing run-on sentences to this fine publication. Trace has never been punched in the face for talking too much.|
|Brantley Collins is a Co-Founder. In his otherwise nondescript day-to-day life, Brantley engages in elaborate rituals which he believes have long served as the secret to the success of the Spurs franchise. His other most deeply held convictions are that Gregg Popovich would easily defeat the Most Interesting Man in the World in any competition, that Tim Duncan is the greatest basketball player known to man, that Manu Ginobili will be revered by post-apocalyptic humanity as a godlike being, and that Kawhi Leonard is a Borg drone whose mission is to assimilate the powers of the best players in the NBA. Lab tests have confirmed that Brantley's blood type is SB, objectively placing him in the highest echelon of elite Spurs fandom.|
|Bramlet Abercrombie is our Senior Satirist, Emiritus. 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.
