Hola Amigos, Been a while since I rapped at ya. Many thoughts to share, so maybe we should do it player by player: Tony Parker – during the preseason, I was playing some NBA Live and noticed that Parker can pretty much score at will on the move unless you jack the CPU defense up a lot. Pretty much like real life, except of course being Le Penetration is a…

Thanks to the Kobe-centric programmers over at ABC, I didn’t get a chance to watch the Spurs beat the Rockets today. But I did catch this remark by Brent Musberger during the Lakers-Sonics game, regarding the Spurs recent loss to the Lakers: MUSBERGER: The Lakers have won four of their last five and they’re coming off their biggest win of the year, the other night in San Antonio, 100 to…

Spurs fans often make me feel like a counselor faced with the age-old, platitudinous, cheesy 80’s-music question “How do I know whether I’m really in love?” Often, as I’m walking along the street, minding my own business (i.e. designing food-poisoning schemes to use against the Pistons or plotting against the integrity of Amare Stoudemire’s knee), I’m approached by wannabe Bramlets who ask me, “Bramlet, how do I know whether I’m…

Steve Kerr thiks so. After watching the San Antonio Spurs dismantle the Phoenix Suns 117-93 on Thursday night, two things were clear to me: One, Steve Nash is this season’s Most Valuable Player, and two, Tony Parker may win the award in the future. Though Parker ranks second in the NBA in field-goal percentage at 55 percent, most of Parker’s shots have been taken in the paint. The Suns decided…

We here at SpursDynasty have failed you, our fans, the people who don’t pay the salaries we don’t get for doing this site. We have neglected to inform you of an important milestone that occurred last week: the Spurs’ victory over the Mavs was Pop’s 500th victory in the NBA. I could bore you with stats about how Pop has one of the highest winning percentages of all coaches in…

Seven in a row over the Lakers. Damn satisfying, even if the team is a shadow of its former overhyped greatness. Let’s make it eight on Friday. Kobe “Second Coming” Bryant is amazing. But once again, individuals will never beat the Spurs. Especially when their teammates suck ass. Does anyone else want to slap Smush Parker’s danglers? There’s something extremely annoying about that guy. Nice to see Manu hit his…

And the winner for best player in a supporting role is … Bruce Bowen. Bruce Bowen and Chris Paul are exactly the type of players the United States needs to regain its position on top of the basketball world. There are still superstars: Kobe Bryant and LeBron James headline the team. But Colangelo also left room for players like Bowen, whose willingness to focus on defense is one of the…

10. Avery Johnson’s secret loyalty to the Spurs. #6 ain’t getting retired in Dallas! 9. As much as everyone talks about the Mavs’ improved D (and it has improved), the main reason for their opponents’ lower scoring average this season is their much slower pace. Statistics don’t lie, but they sure can fool you. 8. They start Degasana “No O” Diop at center, and they bring Erick “Worst Contract Ever”…

The look on Avery Johnson’s face, and the final score, says it all. (Props to Drew for catching this, and to TiVo for making screen capture possible.) UPDATE: Various news sources have reported on the incident, but surprisingly, all express uncertainty about whether Horry actually bit Stackhouse. From ESPN: The Mavericks believe Horry bit Stackhouse during the scuffle, which Horry denied. Replays showed Horry possibly biting Stackhouse’s arm. “We saw…

What do you expect when the worst team in the league plays the reigning NBA Champions on their home court? Said Stephon Marbury, New York’s top scorer, who managed only 2 points on 1-for-9 shooting, “They pretty much did whatever they wanted to do in the second half.” Michael Finley made a season-high five three-pointers, and finished with 22 points in 22 minutes. The Spurs shot a season-best 62.5% from…
