In case you haven’t already heard, the bad news about Ginobili has gotten worse. Or better, depending on your perspective. Elizabeth White writes for the Associated Press: San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, who helped lead Argentina to a bronze medal in the Beijing Olympics, will need surgery to repair a ligament injury in his left ankle. “They’re going to operate on me,” the 31-year-old Ginobili told Argentina’s La Nacion…

Younger Spurs fans may not recognize the name, but I remember the excitement a lot of us felt when the Spurs drafted the 7’0″ big man out of Eastern Illinois University in 1986. My excitement didn’t last long — we traded Duckworth to the Portland Trailblazers after he played just 14 games. It was difficult watching Duckworth after that, thinking about what might have been had he stayed in San…

My friend Kevin attended a celebrity bowling event last night in Washington, DC hosted by Roger Mason, Jr. — DC native and newly acquired San Antonio Spurs Guard. Kevin writes: Talking with Roger, he plans to stay in DC during the offseason and holidays. I asked him if I could rent his house while he was in San Antonio, but no dice on that one. I could have really taken…

The 2008 NBA Draft is tomorrow, and as a consequence of their continued success, the Spurs find themselves, once again, with dim prospects. The Spurs have three picks — 26th, 45th and 57th overall — and history tells us that there won’t be much talent available this deep in the draft. Or maybe there will be. Consider these recent picks. In 2006, Jordan Farmar was picked 26th, Daniel Gibson 42nd,…

It’s hard to believe that the San Antonio Spurs 2007-2008 season ended just six days ago. It didn’t end where we thought it would, but it sure was one helluva ride. I’d like to thank my fellow contributors — Michael, Brantley, Jake, Kevin and Rene — for making this site a reality. More importantly, I’d like to thank you for reading and for joining us. We had over 100,000 readers…

Johnny Dawkins spent three seasons in San Antonio, from the fall of 1986 to the spring of 1989. Those were dark days for Spurs fans. Alvin Robertson couldn’t carry the weight of being a franchise player. Mike Mitchell, Artis Gilmore and Johnny Moore were headed towards retirement, and there wasn’t a lot of promise for the future to be found in players like Frank Brickowski and Kevin Duckworth. The Spurs…

What the fuck is wrong with my diseased brain? Anyway, here’s the last Spurs post of the season. It’s uh… long. Shocking, I know. Thanks for everything guys and I hope, time permitting, you all make it out to the bar to watch some soccer with me. I promise I won’t judge any of you for drinking gallons of awful tasting beer at 9 a.m. Well, not judge you out…

“Down 3-1, we know it’s really hard to come back. But we’re going to try. Of course, we still believe in ourselves. We’re going to have a shot. As always the next game is THE game.”–Manu Ginobili A lot of Spurs fans have given up on the chances of the Spurs winning tonight in Los Angeles, let alone winning three straight against the Lakers. Blogger Matthew Powell has thrown in…

Western Conference Finals Game 4 vs. Los Angeles: Lakers 93, Spurs 91 (3-1) I’m angry. I’m angry that the NBA gave this bullshit apology about the no-call the day after the game. Our coaches and players already said it wasn’t a foul. Why couldn’t we just move on? I’m angry that some of our fans think we were robbed and justified in winning a game we had absolutely no business…

Brent Barry’s days in the NBA are numbered, as they are for all players, of course. But Barry is 36 years old and his career will be over soon — maybe next week, maybe next year. Years from now, if anyone remembers last night’s game, it will not be for Barry’s heroic efforts on offense, scoring a career playoff high 23 points, but instead for Derek Fisher’s foul on Barry…
