Game 2: Spurs 104, Grizzlies 101 This may come as a shock, but no, I will not use this recap as a forum to give one Manu Ginobili the proverbial reach around for yet another brilliant all around performance to save his hapless and disinterested teammates from a loss. First of all, he was good but not that good last night. The Grizzlies gave him way too many open threes…

Spurs 106, Blazers 97 Game 1 recap, sorry it took so long to get the pictures up. Partied last night.

Before the season has even started, the San Antonio Spurs are already bombarded with questions of why they are unable to win back-to-back titles. Everybody knows the Spurs have only won championships on odd numbered years. “It’s an even year, so it’s tough for us,” says Coach Popovich when answering the media’s repetitive questions. As always, Coach Popovich is absolutely correct, but it does not take a future hall-of-famer coach…

Less than five days until the Spurs open the season against the Portland Trailblazers. If you don’t have a Spurs schedule for your wallet yet, you can download it now.

UPDATE: Both leagues are full. Good luck to everyone who joined! By popular demand, we are hosting two Spurs Dynasty Fantasy Leagues this year. It’s free to play with a Yahoo account. Ours are head-to-head leagues, with 13 roster positions — PG, SG, G, SF, PF, F, 2 Centers, 2 utility players and 3 bench players. Scoring is simple — points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks count. Once we have…

Ask any of my friends and they’ll tell you, I’m a big believer in the wisdom of crowds. Yahoo has a new application called NBA Team Ranker — go ahead, try it for yourself — which allows users to decide, given two teams to choose from, which team is better. A perfect test of the wisdom of the Yahoo NBA crowd, right? When I checked last Monday, the crowd chose…

Hey. Hi. Hello there. Remember me? It’s been a while. In case you forgot, my name is Michael, and I’m an asshole. Ask anybody, they’ll tell you. Fortunately (or unfortunately for you, dear reader) I’m an asshole who adores the Spurs. In a completely mostly non-gay way, of course. I have enjoyed my off season as much as any terrible bartender and middling intern for a free daily newspaper possibly…

“I think everyone understands, in business, that sports is about as competitive as it gets, and everyone is going after the same prize. … At the pro level, everyone wants to emulate the San Antonio Spurs. At the collegiate level, it’s Duke.”–Bernard Mullin, president and chief executive officer of the Atlanta Spirit, which owns and operates the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and the NHL’s Atlanta Thrasher Is this little snippet from…

For what it’s worth, Kenny Smith ranks the Spurs best in the West, followed by Phoenix, Dallas, Utah, Houston, Denver, Los Angeles and Oakland. They really didn’t add much to their team. Why? Because the foreign legion team of Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan is still the best. (Yes, Duncan is from the Virgin Islands, but they’re foreign to me!) Depth, youth and experience makes them the blueprint…
