Returned from not one but two Thanksgivings (best. holiday. ever.), only to somehow infect my computer with some malware. Stupid computers. (I love you so much, computer!) I think the problem is almost fixed. Of course, I may just be infecting it worse. You never know with these viruses and such. Luckily, my identity ain’t much worth stealing. Unless of course you’d like to pay off my credit card debt…

Tim Legler is a moron. I had a whole rant worked up, but it’s not even worth it. Seriously, do these “analysts” even watch basketball? The Spurs are making the playoffs. Lock it.

Another night, another Eastern Conference team, another convincing victory. Excluding the last 5 minutes of the first half, this was another thoroughly dominant performance by the Spurs. We won pretty much every statistical category, and we just outworked and outhustled a good team playing good basketball. Every Spur that made it on to the court contributed positively, and we played an impressive team game. What I Liked: –Tim Duncan. How…

Ahhhhhh. We can all breathe a sigh of relief, for one game at least. That was a thorough butt-whooping, and the most complete game we’ve played to date. I actually had to watch the game on an illegal feed in Chinese (when games are on NBA TV, League Pass Broadband doesn’t show them, so if you don’t have NBA TV, you’re SOL), so with the blurry-ish screen and non-English commentary,…

Kelly Dwyer astutely points out what is very obvious to most fans: we are missing our 2nd and 3rd best players. That will wreak havoc with any team, but especially a team that relies on 3 very unique and gifted players. This is what makes games like last week’s win over Dallas a mirage of sorts: yes, we can win (and play beautiful basketball) shorthanded; but in the end, you…

Sometimes the game can turn on a single sequence. Up 2 in OT, George Hill drives the lane. The ball is bouncing around the rim, and Duncan has a chance to tap it in, giving us a commanding 4 point lead and momentum. Instead, Duncan leaves the tap short, the Mavs grab the board, Duncan trips over his own feet, And Nowitzki gets a layup at the rim and a…

I just finished watching The Ugly Truth, a crappy romantic comedy that was neither romantic nor a comedy. I didn’t once laugh out loud, I felt no empathy for the characters, nor did I believe any of their emotional growth. It was predictable, unengaging, and frankly, the two leads were both pretty unlikeable. What’s more depressing is that I watched this movie alone, without my girlfriend, on a Saturday night….

Ah. Last night’s game was like catching up with an old friend you haven’t seen in a long time. And you don’t even realize how long it’s been until you’re finally sitting down face to face, rehashing the old stories, laughing at the same silly inside jokes that cracked you up years ago. And you’re so overjoyed to be with this person that you know so well; and yet you’re…

The official 2010 NBA All-Star ballot was unveiled today in Dallas, and there are five Spurs listed. Here are their numbers after six games played: Manu Ginobili (17.5 PTS, 2.7 REB, 4.2 AST, 1.0 STL) Tony Parker (14.8 PTS, 4.0 AST) Tim Duncan (14.6 PTS, 11.8 REB, 1.6 BLK) Richard Jefferson (15.3 PTS, 4.0 REB, 3.0 AST) Antonio McDyess (6.2 PTS, 4.6 REB) Now we all know that All-Star voting…

We were due for a good revenge game. A game when a scorned player sticks it to his former team, making them regret ever letting him go. Matt Bonner went all Brett Favre on the Raptors’ asses last night, raining 3s and even exploding for a monster dunk. The other story from the game was one Mr. Emmanuel Ginobili. Oh my. Talk about a return to form. His final stat…
