What should we make of the Spurs signing SG/SF Ime Udoka (pronounced EE-may you-DOE-kuh)? Blazers fans aren’t happy about it. Spurs fans are generally pleased. It wasn’t an impulse buy — RC Buford called Udoka’s agent as soon as NBA rules allowed, so you know it was in the works for awhile. (I know, I know, like the Spurs ever make impulse buys.) Udoka’s work ethic and defensive abilities have…

No, not the mess that is the NBA referee gambling crisis (sadly, Donaghy’s last game was reffing Game 3 of the Spurs-Suns, and NO, that doesn’t mean the Spurs didn’t win that series… sorry you embittered Suns fans, but NBA ref conspiracies involve a long line of legitimate complaints, so take a number and get to the back of a very, very long line). No, not the mess that is…

I’ll admit it: the Luis Scola and Jackie Butler for Vassilis Spanoulis trade never made much sense to me. Trading Butler made sense. Back in January, I asked SpursDynasty readers, “Who should the Spurs trade?” The top choices were Beno Udrih, Eric Williams and Jackie Butler – no surprises there. But why give up the rights to Luis Scola? Scola is “generally regarded as one of the best players in…

From The Onion: SAN ANTONIO—Following a Spurs Sunday victory parade during which Tim Duncan regaled the crowd with uncharacteristically exuberant exclamations of “Thank you very much” and “Please, there’s no need to make so much noise,” the normally reserved power forward expressed his appreciation for his fans by speaking at length on the importance of being financially prepared in an increasingly uncertain world. “I can’t tell you how much I…

http://poundingtherock.com/story/2007/6/30/71259/4960 I talk about the draft and how I’ve been passing the hours of late. It’s thrilling stuff.

Draft day isn’t as big an event for fans in San Antonio as it consistently has been for sad NBA fans in lottery towns like Atlanta, Charlotte, Milwaukee and Portland. At least it hasn’t been since Timmy was picked #1 in 1997. Take a look at the guys Pop and R.C. have drafted in the last ten years: Damir Markota (2006); Ian Mahinmi (2005); Ben Udrih, Romain Sato, Sergei Karaulov…

There’s really no two ways about it. I’m a horrible person. Our Spurs won their fourth championship like a week ago, and just now I’m getting around to putting my two cents in. (By the way, you’ll notice that I actually took the time to write, “putting my two cents in.” You people who think it’s a cute and clever shortcut to write, “just my $0.02″ need to be repeatedly…

From Newsday: AUSTIN, Texas — Police urged witnesses to come forward and help them find the mob that beat a man to death after the car he was riding in apparently struck and injured a child. Investigators were struggling to piece together what happened Tuesday when David Rivas Morales died defending the driver from members of a crowd. There could have been anywhere from two to 20 attackers, Austin Police…

from The Onion sports CLEVELAND—Frustrated by the results of the first three NBA Finals games, Cavaliers head coach Mike Brown told reporters at a Tuesday press conference that his team has been losing simply because they’re being “outvictoried.” “Just look at the numbers—they’re outwinning us, they’re outdefeating us, they’re outbettering us in every category,” Brown said. “There’s not much I can tell my team at this point, except that we…

From The Onion Sports PARADISE—God, the omnipotent and omniscient Creator of the Universe who recently saw fit to allow the Cleveland Cavaliers to advance to the NBA Finals, expressed concern Tuesday that He might be causing the earthly city of Cleveland undue emotional anguish by doing so. “I can’t help feeling that they who dwell in Cleveland and root for the Cavaliers have done nothing to warrant the dashing of…
