“You’re only asking for more wrath” – Homer J Simpson Oh, Sacto, Sacto, Sacto. They beat us down in our own gym. It wasn’t pretty. I have a feeling that the Mavs are going to get some frustration taken out on them. Prior to that, the team has been on a tear. Get this – we were doubling the Jizz in both points AND FG% halfway through the 2nd quarter….

Here it is, the thing you didn’t know that you’ve been waiting for (but trust me, you have – the bug I planted in your brain tells me so): the first installment of “Bramlet’s Giblets,” a new series of posts about miscellaneous Spurs and NBA tidbits and other random viscera that I intend to put up when I don’t have time to work on something more substantial. Here is a…

From the Seattle Times: MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Ray Allen took no joy after the NBA issued a $10,000 fine to San Antonio’s Bruce Bowen after he kicked the Sonics guard in the back on Sunday. However, it appears Allen may have helped pursude Stu Jackson, the NBA’s vice president of basketball operations, into assessing the fine. “When we landed in Memphis I called Stu and asked him if he saw…

Los Angeles Clippers guard Cuttino Mobley had this to say about Tony Parker after the Spurs beat them in Los Angeles. “Tony’s a really good player, but their offense is so easy to run,” said. “You dribble it down, you give it to Tim, and those guys are knocking shots down and making plays. That team is deep enough that it’s OK. “If you miss Tim Duncan, then there’s a…

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…
