Not much has changed in a week. The Spurs went 2-2 and have yet to return to championship form. But not all is lost. It’s still early in the season. Seven games mean nothing. And flashes of light are being seen amongst the rubble. It hasn’t been championship basketball, but it also hasn’t been the 76ers. I want to focus on three numbers: 98, 26 and 9. It’s no surprise…

Season 48, Game 06 San Antonio 89, Los Angeles Clippers 85 3-3, 10th in the West Even though it still wasn’t pretty (I’m looking at you, Tony Parker, 3-point shooting), given the early season struggles, that was a nice win against the Clippers. The team even started to resemble a distant cousin of last year’s team. So in the spirit of victory, I’ll focus on the positive and save the…

Season 48, Game 05 New Orleans 100, San Antonio 99 2-3, 10th in the West After last night’s game, Boris Diaw tweeted: I fully agree with Boris, and I’ve argued many times that one should not dwell on all of the miniature mistakes that occurred in the first 47 1/2 minutes of a 1-pt loss. If Kawhi’s ball bounces in, we’re not thinking about Tyreke Evans 2 buzzer beating shots…

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…
