Back in 2005, when I launched SpursDynasty.com with my two good friends Jake and Brantley, the idea was that it would be a podcast, not a website. After a drunken attempt at recording ourselves talking about our favorite team, and then listening to how ridiculous we sounded, we decided blogging was a more achievable goal. That was then and this is now. We’re older and perhaps wiser. Software tools like…

Season 48, Game 04 Houston 98, San Antonio 81 2-2 Before we get to the Spurs, let me say this about arguably my least favorite team (with my least favorite players) in the league: both James Harden and Dwight Howard looked great last night, and this Rockets team is legit. (It’s also nice not to have to hear the Rockets’ announcers, probably the only crew that Reggie Miller is a…

Season 48, Game 03 San Antonio 94, Atlanta 92 2-1 Much like last season’s game against the Hawks in San Antonio, the Spurs’ “little brother” look alike came into town and the gear ground to a halt. I’m considering adopting Atlanta as my Eastern Conference team to follow and cheer for. With Coach Bud taking over, they run a system very similar to the Spurs. Their roster is also full…

Now that we’ve had a summer to gloat and boast about our team’s accomplishments in last year’s NBA finals, it’s time to pour some water on the fire and fuhgeddaboudit. Opening week has come and gone and, if you’re at all like me, the summer of pride was not long enough, especially after this dud of an opening week. Dud, not in the aspect of gaming, but just in the…

Season 48, Game 02 Phoenix 94, San Antonio 89 1-1 There were no treats for us on Halloween; the Spurs ran out of tricks–and gas–late, falling to the Suns 89-94. It’s not that I hate losing. Losing happens. It’s a long season, and there will be nights when a loss is just in the cards. What I have a hard time with is losing so poorly. When the final score…

Season 48, Game 01 San Antonio 101, Dallas 100 1-0 The Spurs began the night receiving rings in fond memory of their historic Finals victory; they ended the night barely staving off nightmares of how that run was almost derailed before it even began. The Mavs were in town to kick off the season on Championship Ring night, and the game played out like Game 8 of their first round…

What to do for an encore? The glow of June is still with us, and yet here we are ready to start a new NBA Season. Can’t we just have a few more weeks to be undisputed NBA Champs? To have the enduring memories of the Spurs’ near-perfect basketball be the last meaningful moments? Alas, a new season awaits whether we are ready or not, and all scoreboards have been…

It’s that time of year again. A month filed with training camp, Media Day, and a series of eight scrimmages to figure out starting line-ups, work on play sequences, and give each player on the team a healthy amount of playing time to show the coaching staff their abilities in a realistically-paced environment. Granted, there are plenty of reasons to be excited (or even anxious) about this year’s preseason. That…

During Media Day, much attention was paid to Coach Popovich mentioning the absence of a key member of the 2014 championship squad. It began with a joke regarding the weight this teammate was expected to have gained during the offseason. This was followed by a hilarious Instagram reply by the player in question. Given our recent expose about Boris Diaw being the only Spur to not attend this year’s training…

Is it the smirk? The subtle tip of the wine glass? Or maybe the cool, night backdrop of an undisclosed bistro? Of course not. The intrigue of this picture is the subject himself: Boris Babacar Diaw-Riffiod a.k.a. “Bobo”. If you think you know Boris, you really don’t. The man is as much an enigma on the court as he is off of it. He has the body of a post-up…
