More details have come out about the Spurs trade last night that sent Brent Barry and Francisco Elson to Seattle for Kurt Thomas. Turns out that: a) the trade might not have been just about getting a big defender, and b) it may have helped that Seattle’s coach and GM are both former Spurs employees. Johnny Ludden writes: So it has gone for the West. You got Gasol? We’re getting…

The San Antonio Spurs acquired veteran forward Kurt Thomas from the Seattle SuperSonics on Wednesday night in exchange for guard Brent Barry, center Francisco Elson and a 2009 first-round draft pick. Did anyone see this coming? It’ll be a shame to see Brent Barry back in a Sonics uniform, but he’s been hampered by injuries this season, averaging less than 19 minutes in 29 games. I think his days in…

“What they did in Memphis is beyond comprehension. There should be a trade committee that can scratch all trades that make no sense. I just wish I had been on a trade committee that oversees NBA trades. I would have voted no to the LA trade.”-Gregg Popovich on the trade that sent Pau Gasol to the LA Lakers Obviously Pop has his opinion, but I’d like to know what SpursDynasty…

For the record, I’ve never been a big fan of Damon Stoudamire going back to his college days at Arizona. He’s extremely talented, but also strikes me as cocky and arrogant, even if he is one of the smallest players in the league. It’s hard to see him fitting in a Spurs system that values teamwork, not to mention humility, modesty and sobriety. But I’ve set aside my personal bias…

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…
