We all know who the real 2008 MVP is, but its of interest to Spurs fans that two of our favorite players received votes this year. Tim Duncan got two fourth place votes and 19 fifth place votes while Manu Ginobili received nine fifth place votes. I know of at least one columnist who voted for Manu and here’s why: Ginobili’s particularly unique impact this season defied any conceivable statistical…

Those aren’t my words, but the words of Peter Finney, New Orleans sports columnist, writing in last Monday’s Times-Picayune. The Hornets will lose this best-of-seven-game series to the defending NBA champions, despite winning the opener by 19 points. Personally, I’m not so sure, but I do believe the Spurs will win tonight. The Spurs are favored by six again. And so far in these Conference Semifinals, the home team has…

Game 3 recap! A full day before Game 4! I get to shower now! Yippee!

Has Pop figured out how his team of veterans can beat the younger, more energetic New Orleans Hornets? If so, let’s hope that what happened last night can be replicated three more times, and that Byron Scott and his team are unable to adjust. 1. Matthew Powell at PtR gives credit to Bruce Bown for shutting down Peja Stojakovic. After averaging 23.5 points in the first two games, Peja was…

So far the Conference Semifinals against the Hornets have gone much like the Conference Quarterfinals against the Suns went. When the Big Three have produced, the Spurs have won. And when they haven’t… Duncan had a career playoff worst performance with just 5 points and 3 rebounds in game one, while Parker and Ginobili combined for just 24 points in game two, getting nearly as many turnovers (8) as assists…

Second Round Game 1 @ New Orleans: Hornets 101, Spurs 82 This post should’ve been written a few days ago, but as always life intervenes, so I apologize. I spent Saturday night at a soccer game, watching the San Jose Earthquakes battle FC Dallas in a contest every bit as thrilling as the 0-0 final score suggests. The teams combined for four shots on goal and the home side had…

Game 4 recap. Relive the excitement!

First Round Game 3 @ Phoenix: Spurs 115, Suns 99 Believe it or not, I’m not completely thrilled we won last night. No, this has nothing to do with Antoine’s overwhelming dominance. Well, maybe a little. No, that’s not it. What’s got me bothered is my face. It’s hairy. Very hairy. And itchy. And it feels like I’ve got food all over my mouth and it just feels gross. I…

Game 2 recap, whee…

Manu Ginobili better make some room on his mantle. In addition to the accolades already earned by the gifted Argentine — two Lega A Most Valuable Player awards, the Euroleague 2000-01 Final Four MVP award, the 2001 Euroleague Championship, 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist and three NBA Championships — Ginobili has now been recognized as the NBA’s best sixth man. We here at SpursDynasty congratulate Manu Ginobili, but we know better….
