One rebound shy of a triple-double in his first regular-season game…21 points and 6 boards in his second. Gotta love it. The Bucks have suddenly turned into a good team, with Ford, Michael Redd, Jamaal Magloire, Andrew Bogut, and Bobby Simmons all playing well, along with some other decent talent.

Check out the new NBA on TNT spots featuring Ali G. They can’t match the brilliance of the show in just a few seconds, but they’re still funny.

Notice that this image and headline were posted before tip-off last night: Are Yahoo! Sports readers convinced? Not so much. Oh well, they will be.

Wow, what an awesome game last night! First, the Spurs were awarded their rings for winning the 2005 NBA Championship. During the ring ceremony, Michael Finley saw clearly why he wanted to come to San Antonio. “I was like a kid again when one of your friends on the block has something and you told your mom, ‘I want one of those,”’ he said of the jewelry that has so…

Sports Illustrated writer Jack McCallum asks: Who is the odd man — make it odd men — out in San Antonio? As I look at the 13-man roster the defending champion Spurs take into the opener against Denver Tuesday night, I see guys who can play. Even the rookie forward from Argentina, Fabricio Oberto, and the probable inactive-list candidate, center Sean Rooks. But most coaches like a rotation of nine,…

Longoria’s Parker TattooActress Eva Longoria is so in love with her boyfriend Tony Parker, she has had his initials tattooed in an intimate area of her body. The “Desperate Housewives” star, 30, started dating the San Antonio Spurs basketball ace after ending her on/off relationship with ‘N Sync hunk JC Chasez in January. Longoria enthuses, “You can see three of my tattoos, they’re all on public display, but the one…

There’s not much else to say about the preseason, except that it’s over. On Tuesday, it’ll be down to business for the once and future kings of basketball. Ok, file this bit of minutiae on former Spur Speedy Claxton under “Where Are They Now.” “This definitely feels like home now,” point guard Speedy Claxton said. “I thought it was going to feel like an 82 road-game schedule, but it doesn’t….

Kudos to the man for helping us win three championships and for shelling out lots of big, long-term contracts for a small-market team. And I respect the concept of fiscal responsibility (even though I’m a left-wing, tax-and-spend whacko). But why did he force management to trim our roster to 13 players? There were a couple of young guys on our preseason roster who would have been good long-term prospects for…

Praise Allah, the preseason is over. Ok, so the win-loss record means nothing. What did we learn from the Spurs’ preseason? The Pacers are going to be tough. But then, we knew that already. Peter Holt really IS cheap when it comes to the luxury tax. (See my other post.) The Spurs should have a quicker start this year than they usually do, but we probably won’t see them dominate…

Nice Q&A session by Matthew from San Antonio Spurs Blog in SportsFan Magazine: Q: On a scale of 1-10, how tired of the San Antonio Spurs‘ success are you? (With “one” being not at all, and “ten” being the kind of pain you feel when you see Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes on the cover of a magazine at the supermarket.) A: Definitely a 1. Despite winning the title, the…
