I am a Spurs fan, to the core. I value the franchise and hold it dear to my heart. Being in the armed forces, stationed on an aircraft carrier, I get to enjoy the company of many other fans of sporting teams. Some loyal, some playoff bandwagoneers and some just plain dumb. Needless to say, my fellow shipmates and I do have our disagreements. Fortunately, my loyalty runs pretty deep…

I’ll let the Warriors announcers do the recap for me: The Spurs are a “meat grinder of efficiency”. The Warriors have run into a “buzzsaw offensively”. And my favorite: “Playing the Spurs is like getting a root canal”. That about sums up the game.  Personally, it was just nice to watch the team live after missing six straight games.  The team was in efficiency cruise control tonight, which is quite…

This is NOT the same Warriors team the Spurs decimated around this time last year. The Warriors are an impressive 5-2 at home, but the Spurs are the ONLY team that is undefeated on the road (7-0). Golden State of Mind: The Spurs are the best team in basketball right now. Betcha didn’t guess that would ever be written this year. They’re 14-2 and just won 12 in a row….

Justin Kubatko writes for The New York Times (“Spurs’ Recipe for Success”): The Spurs have defied the predictions of decline, riding an 11-game winning streak to a 12-1 start, the best record in the N.B.A. A closer look reveals a recipe for success — build around a core of stars with draft picks and veteran role players — that Coach Gregg Popovich has used throughout the Spurs’ run. The Spurs…

Game 16: Spurs 109, Hornets 95 // Record 14-2 “Bottom line is I got outcoached… Coach Pop made move after move and I didn’t make the adjustment.” — Hornets coach Monty Williams It was all Hornets in the first half, as New Orleans outscored San Antonio 61-44. David West accounted for 16 of the Hornets 34 points in the first quarter. I was reminded of past match-ups in The Hive…

Manu Ginobili was not going to shoot 20% all night. Tony Parker was not going to shoot 20% all night. At some point, Matt Bonner….the NBA’s best three point shooter so far this season…was going to hit on a deep ball or two. Even with the big lead, the Wolves had to know that at some point, San Antonio was going to stage a comeback run, and they did. Believe…

I am in the Navy and stationed in San Diego, but currently forward deployed. Being away from the South Texas area, I don’t really get to see much of my Spurs games. At best, I’m lucky to find an online feed. But being out on deployment to the Middle East, it’s even worse. The only hope I have of seeing my Spurs is on the Armed Forces Network, which is…

Great article about the ‘new-look Spurs’ by Zach Lowe writing for Sports Illustrated: Overall, only six teams are playing at a faster pace than the Spurs. Of note: It’s a trend that excludes Duncan, or at least marginalizes him to a role as a rebounder and outlet passer. He has been involved in just five transition finishes all season, according to Synergy, compared to nearly three-dozen each for Jefferson and…

The Spurs ran their winning streak to 11, beating the Orlando Magic in an apparently playoff-worthy showing from both teams. And I missed it. Again. And because this game was on NBATV, I can’t watch it on League Pass. So, dear readers, I need your help. I need to know where I can re-watch/download old games. I’d hate to miss this one. Please post to comments.

It’s been an exciting time in Spurs land, hasn’t it?  Tony cheats!  Tim passes David!  Spurs are red-hot!  What a time for a Spurs site to go down.  The most exciting story for non-Spurs fans has obviously been the Tony Imbroglio.  Nothing draws traffic like a marriage/sex scandal.  For Spurs fans, I think it presents some real troubling issues and questions our loyalty and just what we’re willing to root…
