Game 10: Spurs 86, Clippers 83 Unbelievable. Roger Mason’s three-pointer with 8.4 seconds left against the Clippers? Yeah, that was great. What’s unbelievable, though, is that I watched last night’s Spurs-Clippers game on my computer! When Tim Duncan started playing for the Spurs back in 1997, we were still using VCRs to record games. (Bramlet needs a storage unit for all of his VHS tapes.) Now we watch games on…

The Spurs were trampled by the Mavericks last night, 98-81. (Thankfully those other mavericks were losers last night.) This loss made it three straight for our Spurs — their worst start ever, unless you count when they opened 0-4 in the 1973-74 season back in the ABA days. Since the Spurs joined the NBA in 1976, they’ve never lost three straight right out of the gates. I won’t be surprised…

Hello! Long time no see peeps. Since I’ve last posted one of our SpursDynasty crew had a daughter (hint: it wasn’t me) and I haven’t even called him yet to offer congratulations? Why? Because I’m a terrible, terrible person, that’s why. Why else? Because I’ ve been kinda busy. But really that’s not an excuse. Everyone’s busy these days. Economy sucks, jobs are harder than ever because folks have to…

I waded through more than a dozen prognosticators’ pre-season predictions to bring you the best takes on the 2008-2009 season. It’s not surprising that sports writers aren’t optimistic about the Spurs chances of winning a fifth title this year, but most don’t rule it out either. Back in June, the Sporting News’ Stan McNeal picked his “Top 5 Candidates for a championship parade in 2009″, ranking the Spurs fourth behind…

Game One: Spurs 98, Suns 103 The Spurs opened the 2007-2008 season with a win over the Blazers. This year the Spurs opened with a loss at home to the Phoenix Suns. When was the last time the Spurs lost a season opener with Tim Duncan? Never. In fact, neither Gregg Popovich nor Tim Duncan had lost openers before. What a difference a year makes. Last year, Manu Ginobili and…

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich trimmed his beard just in time to waive Salim Stoudamire and receive some accolades in the league’s annual general managers survey. The GMs named Popovich the league’s best coach, ahead of Phil Jackson and Jerry Sloan. They also cited him as the coach who makes the best in-game adjustments and the coach who is best in the final two minutes of a close game and the…

Jeff McDonald writes for the Express-News: Five games into the preseason, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich still hasn’t trimmed his training camp roster — and might not any time soon. There are seven players — Anthony Tolliver, Salim Stoudamire, Darryl Watkins, Desmon Farmer, Malik Hairston, Devin Green and Charles Gaines — competing for a maximum of two roster spots. Popovich has until Oct. 27 to cut the roster to 15. Before…
