82games looks at the best NBA trios and comes up with some interesting results. We’ve been compiling stats for years now looking at how teams have performed with specific players on the court: individual player plus/minus and on court versus off court, five man units, and yes, even player pairs. Inevitably people ask about the remaining combinations — player Trios (also known as Triads or the more problematic “threesomes”) and…

The Spurs have been on a roll lately, of sorts. They’ve fallen from first to sixth in the West, from a championship team firing on all cylinders to an injury-riddled veteran squad playing .500 ball. After starting the season 17-3, they’re just 11-13 since. One can only hope that their loss to the Sonics last night is the bottom of the Spurs decline, as bad as things will get this…

Hello once again, my pretties. I come to you from my humble home where I will lay on my humble bed for the last time this evening until January 23rd or so. I am off to the Big Apple for a week’s vacation where the itinerary has me attending my sister’s graduation from the CIA, (That would be the Culinary Institute of America, not the assassin academy. Then again, with…

At long last, the nightmare is over. I think even my cold is gone now.(Photo by Noah Graham/NBAE via Getty Images)Holy fucking shit it’s about time. No, wiseass, not me posting again. I’m talking about the Big Three finally playing together again. Is it a coincidence that for the first time in what seems like forever the sun is shining outside? I don’t think so, my friends. I knew The…

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, loyal SpursDynasty reader. I feel terrible. Not because I’m sick, although I’m pretty sure I picked up something from my nephews last week, but because I’ve been silent for the past 12 days. And since we’re averaging just under 500 unique visitors a day to the site, more than 5,000 visitors have come here to find nothing new. Nada. Zilch. Michael can usually…

According to Bill Simmons, three of our favorite players rank in the top 50: 17. Tony Parker16. Manu Ginobili We’re sticking them in such high circles partly out of respect (six rings combined) and partly because San Antonio’s organization, to its never-ending credit, values chemistry and goodguymanship (I just made that word up) over everything else. Here’s the defining why-the-Spurs-win-and-keep-winning story: They gave away Luis Scola this summer not just…

Game 22: Lakers 102, Spurs 97 “Brent, have you seen my magnets?” “I saw Bruce playing with them on the plane.” “Hey man, I gave them to Bonner at the hotel in San Francisco…”(Photo by Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images)I know pretty much everyone who reads me or likes me wishes I could do these blogs sooner, but sometimes, it really is a good thing that I sit back, wait, and have…

French model Alexandra Paressant claims she met Tony Parker “at his wedding to Longoria earlier in the year, exchanged numbers, and embarked on a steamy two-month affair.” Longoria’s representative Liza Anderson, refuted the claims in a statement: “These allegations are completely, 100 per cent false and untrue. All high-profile couples fall victim to these sorts of things in the course of their relationships. “It appears this is not the first…

A magical Greek leprechaun recaps Tuesday evening.

Come on, Spurs fans! The NBA released early All-Star returns today and with five weeks to go Tim Duncan is third among Western Conference Forwards, while Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker are fifth and seventh, respectively, among Western Conference Guards. Duncan has 95.6% as many votes as Dirk Nowitzki, trailing him by less than 20,000 votes. That’s a lead that can be cut into pretty quickly. Ginobili and Parker are…
