Hats off to JewishDoggy, who posted “163 of my favorite NBA gifs assorted by team” two weeks ago.

With the #1 seed locked up in the Western Conference, our thoughts now turn to securing the overall #1 seed, and finishing the regular season with the best overall record. The Magic Number for this to happen is 3, meaning any combination of Spurs’ wins and Bulls’ losses equaling 3 will secure the top spot. The question is: how hard should we go for it? Bart Herridge over at Spurs…

We’ve heard Pop use the phrase “appropriate fear” before. Its about respecting your opponent and appreciating that, on any given day, their strengths and your weaknesses can conspire and lead to your team’s defeat. Appropriate fear is what Tim Duncan and Chris Paul speak about in the latest NBA split screen commercial. Last night I didn’t see an appropriately fearful Spurs team. Maybe it was because they played so well…

French model Alexandra Paressant claims she met Tony Parker “at his wedding to Longoria earlier in the year, exchanged numbers, and embarked on a steamy two-month affair.” Longoria’s representative Liza Anderson, refuted the claims in a statement: “These allegations are completely, 100 per cent false and untrue. All high-profile couples fall victim to these sorts of things in the course of their relationships. “It appears this is not the first…

I can’t decide which is stranger: Former San Antonio Spur, and current Dallas Mavericks coach, Avery Johnson has been married for 14 years. Avery’s wife, Cassandra, assaulted a Suns fan and made an obscene gesture during her husband’s team’s loss in Game 4. Cassandra assaulted Rebecca Kettle and Jose Martinez because they kept standing and cheering, blocking the view of her children. She claims she asked them to “not get…

Coach Gregg Popovich was featured in the May 31, 2006 issue of Wine Spectator magazine. You can read the entire article, “Coach Gregg Popovich shoots straight about wine,” on winespectator.com. Here is an excerpt: San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich’s biggest nightmare has nothing to do with basketball. He’s not worried about a weak defense or an undisciplined team; after all, the Texas team, led by “Pop,” as the…

There will be no Hall of Fame induction for former Spur Alvin Robertson, not ever. This despite the fact that he is one of only 4 players to record a quadruple-double. Too bad. Since he first bounded onto the basketball court as a Spurs guard in 1984, Alvin Robertson rarely has allowed obstacles to impede him. The ex-Spurs star with a troubled past has breached multiple barriers. One of the…

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…

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…

Once again, everyone’s talking about Eva Longoria and Tony Parker. Actually, I have a pretty positive impression of her and of her relationship with Tony – for one thing, people close to the team have said some positive things about her and seem to think that their relationship is serious and healthy. I also like the fact that she comes to a lot of the games, including road games in…
