Reading Bramlet’s post about Bob Hill (“Revenge of the Bitches”) reminded me that for Coach Popovich the regular season has always been prelude to the post season that starts in April. Bob Hill didn’t get that in 1996 and I doubt he gets it now. Speaking of the post season, there are just 12 games left for the Spurs in the regular season. And 5 of those games are matchups…

That loss to the Sonics was hard to swallow, considering that the Spurs went on a 9-0 run in the last couple of minutes to take the lead, and all it would have taken to win was a timeout by Robert Horry. I hate losing to Ray Allen. I feel like kicking him too, Bruce, just as I feel like kicking everyone who gives the Spurs trouble. But you should…

I guess it’s for the best that Ray Allen won’t be playing on the USA National Basketball team with Bruce Bowen. “It’s just dirty basketball. It’s plain, outright, dirty basketball,” Allen said. “You guys have chronicled our battles over the last couple of years and I don’t mind the competition, someone going at me on both ends of the floor. … But when guys start throwing elbows and kick you…

Box. The Spurs forgot, in Denver: 1) BOX OUT 2) It was a BOXING MATCH, so the Spurs had to throw blows (the Nugs never stopped going for the face or trying to crush Tony) Otherwise, the Spurs showed remarkable resilience in one of the most losable games left in the schedule. On the road, a back to back (da squad usually loses these, as we’ve seen for months now),…

I called it! Just as I predicted, people were taking Eva’s comment about being the teacher out of context, and now she has come out to defend her man’s reputation: LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eva Longoria, desperate to set the record straight, took to the entertainment-news shows Tuesday to tell the world that her beau, NBA star Tony Parker, is aces in the bedroom. File it under Too Much Information,…

To Kenyon Martin and Bill Simmons: I cannot abide these slanderous words and brutish actions. I demand satisfaction, Sirs! That’s one big-ass gauntlet I’m about to throw down. I’m goin’ Aaron Burr on yo’ asses. What has provoked the fury of the Bramlet, you ask? Kenyon “so many insulting nicknames they have to be footnoted” Martin* is once again acting like a punk-ass bitch: With the Spurs down 61-48 in…

This kid can play. Hard to believe he’s a diabetic. “Adam Morrison is a 20-point-a-game scorer in the NBA for a long, long time,” one Western scout said. “The son of a bitch can score on anyone.” “He’s like (Larry) Bird. He just finds a way to get the ball in the basket,” a Southwest Division scout added. “I’ve spent the last four months on the road, at least six…

Once again, everyone’s talking about Eva Longoria and Tony Parker. Actually, I have a pretty positive impression of her and of her relationship with Tony – for one thing, people close to the team have said some positive things about her and seem to think that their relationship is serious and healthy. I also like the fact that she comes to a lot of the games, including road games in…

* Brent Barry – since the very-near trade, just past the league deadline, Brent has started coming strong with bigger game. Nothing like being sent to obscurity off a championship squad to get motivated. His shooting % and minutes are up pretty noticably over the month. He’s the best Barry still playing in TX at least.* Michael Finley – also spelling Manu, buying valuable rest for his fellow All-Star guard,…

In the last few days two articles by noted basketball pundits have left me a tad disturbed. (Both of them, by the way, are examples of the media’s – and the NBA’s – radical anti-Spurs agenda, a topic on which the sleuths at SpursDynasty will be offering a complete expose in the coming weeks.) I would feel sorry for these victims of foot-in-mouth disease, but they obviously hate the Spurs…
