Now that we’ve had a summer to gloat and boast about our team’s accomplishments in last year’s NBA finals, it’s time to pour some water on the fire and fuhgeddaboudit. Opening week has come and gone and, if you’re at all like me, the summer of pride was not long enough, especially after this dud of an opening week. Dud, not in the aspect of gaming, but just in the…

Season 48, Game 02 Phoenix 94, San Antonio 89 1-1 There were no treats for us on Halloween; the Spurs ran out of tricks–and gas–late, falling to the Suns 89-94. It’s not that I hate losing. Losing happens. It’s a long season, and there will be nights when a loss is just in the cards. What I have a hard time with is losing so poorly. When the final score…

Season 48, Game 01 San Antonio 101, Dallas 100 1-0 The Spurs began the night receiving rings in fond memory of their historic Finals victory; they ended the night barely staving off nightmares of how that run was almost derailed before it even began. The Mavs were in town to kick off the season on Championship Ring night, and the game played out like Game 8 of their first round…

What to do for an encore? The glow of June is still with us, and yet here we are ready to start a new NBA Season. Can’t we just have a few more weeks to be undisputed NBA Champs? To have the enduring memories of the Spurs’ near-perfect basketball be the last meaningful moments? Alas, a new season awaits whether we are ready or not, and all scoreboards have been…

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…
