From Onion Sports Year In Review: Team Sports The biggest sports stories in 2005 were not always the best. Yes, champions were crowned in notable fashion: the USC Trojans captured their second straight national title; the New England Patriots cemented their dynasty status with their third Super Bowl win in four years, the Spurs won a thrilling Game 7 to win the NBA championship June 25—In an attempt to show…

Winning close games is what great teams do. It’s not luck or good fortune which allows a good team to win the buzzer beaters. But don’t tell that to Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves, who have lost three straight games by a combined five points. The Spurs are 2-0 in overtime this year and in seven games that have been decided by six or fewer points, the Spurs are…

SpursDynasty exclusive (SO exclusive, we can’t legally claim anyone actually said anything below, so we’ll use National Enquirer journalism standards) Immediately after losing to the terrible Atlanta Hawks, and at the earliest point in a Spurs’ season ever, Coach Greg Popovich gave his annual “This Team Is SOFT” speech, a longstanding team tradition. Yahoo reports: “On Saturday night, they (the Hawks) finally finished a game, snapping a seven-game losing streak…

My wife will never read this, so I can admit the truth here: I’m in love with Bruce Bowen. After his performance ever at age 33-34 last season, he’s even better this year, shutting down everyone from Allen Iverson to Dirk Nowitski, blending seamlessly and selflessly into the offense, finishing on the break consistently, passing nicely, and nailing his 3′s – he’s currently the 4th-best 3-point shooter in the L….

During the Spurs-Heat game last night, ESPN ran footage of the last time the Heat won in San Antonio — December 23, 1996. That game changed everything for the San Antonio Spurs. David Robinson played just six games in 1996-97 after missing a total of 17 games in his first seven season. He was sidelined for the first 18 games of the season while recovering from a lower back strain,…

I think a lot of us Americans have an impression of the basketball played in other parts of the world, especially Europe and Asia, as being much more reliant on skill and strategy and outside shooting, and less reliant on kicking the other guy’s ass. In other words, we think we play tough basketball, and everyone else plays pussy basketball. Wrong. I admit, as I walked into the gym for…

Finley starts for the Spurs and we beat his old team to solidfy dominance in the Midwest. Most excellent.

Phil Jackson Introduces New Tetrahedron Offense

Dallas may currently be just 5th in the Western Conference, but make no doubt about it, they are the second best team. And had it not been that the Spurs came out on top after seven lead changes in the final 2 minutes 48 seconds of play last night, the Mavericks would be tied for first with the Spurs at 11-4. Great teams find a way to win, somehow. The…

Spurs-Lakers: My take… “Fuck them sorry bitches. “ You can quote me on that. Hear me, Phil Jackson? You are a bitch. Of course, Kobe’s the Biggest Bitch In The World, so you have to take a seat at his feet. Not such a Zen master without an all-star lineup, eh as-teriskhole? Spurs defeated the Lakers, Kobe went off for a million and still lost. Sorry bitches. PS Laker fans…
