Decent win against the Bobcats last night. The game had many of the positives and negatives of the young season on full display. We dominated for 3 quarters, but let them back in with one horrendous quarter. Tony Parker had 10 assists, but 7 TOs. Ginobili scored 20 in the first half, and 2 in the second. We shot 60% from the floor, but turned the ball over 28 times….

Great article at Hardwood Paroxysm about the potential fear all teams should feel for the Spurs. As for me, I don’t know how to feel. It seems that that story line has been written for years about the Spurs. And for the first 8 years of this decade, it seemed to be true. But is it still? The intention is still true in the way that Pop runs the team,…

Pre-Game on Foxsports Southwest: Can someone tell me the background of Ric Renner’s hair?  I imagine it having its own mythological story and magical properties.  Like the Dos Equis most interesting hairpiece in the world.  1st Quarter: Jefferson slammed on the opening play–couldn’t start it any better, he remained hot. Someone must have slipped some red meat into his cheerios. Bogans may be on the top of my Spurs “guys…

If the last three games were a microcosm to how far this newly assembled team has come along, then things are really, really terrible.  You know that moment when you take your car to the shop, and  the mechanic comes out from the garage, wipes his hands on his grease towel and gives you a look of: “this is way worse than anyone would have speculated,”?  What we thought may…

The Spurs are doing what they’re supposed to do.  They’ve won five games they were supposed to win and put together a nice 5 game winning streak.  Starting tomorrow they’ll have a three game stretch against some elite teams, that won’t be all candy and hugs, however.  Thursday, December 3rd, Boston comes to town.  Boston is currently tied with the Magic for best record in the east, and seems to…

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…
