And good luck. You’re going to need it. (I suppose you’re going to take P.J. with you, huh?) Sam Presti was hired as general manager of the Seattle SuperSonics, and one of his first jobs will be to replace fired coach Bob Hill. The 30-year-old San Antonio assistant general manager replaces Rick Sund, who was demoted to consultant after Seattle’s 31-51 season. Presti also will prepare for the upcoming NBA…

So is God really a Spurs fan? “Yeah!” (Sister Angelina) Gomez said, laughing and clutching her hands in the dining room where a giant Spurs blanket hangs like a banner. Sister Rosalba Garcia, one of the 23 nuns of the Salesian Sisters of Mary Immaculate Province, wears a San Antonio Spurs jersey at their facility in San Antonio, Tuesday, June 5, 2007. Each Sister is praying for an individual player…

Duncan Has Parker. James Has Himself. (New York Times) James may be the N.B.A.’s brightest star and its greatest hope, but three of the four best players in this series are wearing silver and black: Duncan, Parker and Manu Ginóbili. The Spurs have all of the experience, the three crisp championship banners and a cast of role players who have been there and done that, then done it again. The…

Have you seen any of the commercials that ABC has produced for the NBA Finals? I just saw this one during “NBA Fastbreak” on ESPN. ANNOUNCER: Cavaliers. [LeBron James heads out onto the court in warm-ups.] ANNOUNCER: Spurs. [Tim Duncan removes his pullover.] ANNOUNCER: Game one. [Pyrotechnics.] ANNOUNCER: Four titles in nine years would cement Tim Duncan’s Spurs as a basketball dynasty. [Tim Duncan holds up the O’Brien trophy; Duncan…

I, probably like most of you, have been wondering lately and often times aloud walking the torpid and torrid streets of Singapore, “What exactly makes a dynasty?” So, I referenced God Online, otherwise known as Wikipedia, and came up with the following analysis: YEARS DYNASTIC TEAM ANALYSIS ’49-`54 Minneapolis Lakers 5 Championships in 6 years ’57-’69 Boston Celtics I 11 Championships in 13 years ’80-’90 Los Angeles Lakers 5 Championships…

Game 5 Utah @ San Antonio: Spurs 109, Jazz 84 (4-1) We’re in the Finals again, yippee!!! At long last, the guys get to their long deserved moment in the sun, basking in the glow of being crowned champions of the ungodly stacked Western Conference in front of their appreciative fans. (AP Photo/Eric Gay) Can you feel my excitement? Can you sense my enthusiasm? Can you visualize my rock hard…

We should know tonight whether the Spurs will face the Cavaliers or the Pistons in the NBA Finals. Either King James holds court at home and it’s over, or the Pistons win and drag the boy-King back to the Palace for game seven. Call me crazy, but I still think the Pistons will win in seven. Before LeBron’s epic performance on Thursday night, I thought a Spurs-Pistons Final was inevitable….

It’s not magic (or magnets), David Blaine. The Spurs are headed to the NBA Finals. I ran across this ad on a non-sports related website yesterday afternoon. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I might say that the NBA has been planning on a Spurs-Pistons Finals ever since the Mavericks and Heat were eliminated. But if the fix is in, I don’t get it. Isn’t this the matchup that no…

In case you missed it, Michael recaps game 4 on PtR, “Manu Ginobili Was the Second Gunman on the Grassy Knoll.” Nice recap and a clever title, Michael. But I think the second gunman was this guy.

Game 3 San Antonio @ Utah: Jazz 109, Spurs 83 (2-1) I stare blankly at the imposing box score. 109 points against. 66 in the second half. 25-39 (64%) FGs allowed the last two quarters. 17/19 Assists to turnovers for us, 26/12 for them. Our bench outscored 38-29. Five minutes of run for one Beno Udrih. None of these things make for a pretty picture. So of course I can’t…
