Game 48 @ Phoenix: Suns 103, Spurs 87Long time no blog, I know I know. What can I say, I’ve been addicted to Minesweeper of late. You might say I’m obsessed with the game. I’ve gotten to the point where I like to play it “blind” without ever planting the flags on the mines and seeing if I can finish the expert level that way. The bottom line is that…

Steve Kerr picks this Wednesday’s matchup between the Spurs and Wizards as his game of the week. Kerr still has the Spurs at #3 in his power rankings, behind the Mavericks and Suns, and the Wizards at #8. Take note of this remark ‘Too old.’ ‘Too slow.’ ‘Too methodical.’ The Spurs have heard it all. But they’re healthy and experienced, and no one will want to play them in May….

Last year saw dramatic increases in the number of unique visitors and pages viewed here at SpursDynasty. There were approximately 20,000 visitors to the site and nearly 35,000 pages viewed in 2006. If January is any indicator, we look to double that in 2007. As was the case in 2005, Bramlet Abercrombie dominates the year in review, with seven out of the 10 top posts in 2006*. Interestingly enough, our…

Funk, I’m glad to have you back, but you don’t seriously believe that Kobe is soft, do you? Gregg Popovich certainly does not. Before last Sunday’s game, Pop said that Kobe is one of the best (the best?) players in the league on both ends of the court. I agree. But I won’t make that case here. We’ll have that conversation over a few beers sometime. So why the one-game…

What kind of guy has to resort to violence when his game can’t speak for itself? Oh yeah, Kobe Bryant.

Kobe Bryant was shocked that he got caught for his hit on Ginobili during Sunday’s game in Los Angeles, with just 2.7 seconds remaining. The Spurs won 96-94 in overtime and Bryant was suspended for one game without pay. A lot of Lakers fans are up in arms about this, believing what they want to believe. It doesn’t help that Kobe lied repeatedly to the press about his intentions. (Watch…

Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns made it 17 wins in a row by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers yesterday 115-100. That matches streaks by the Washington Capitols (1946-47), Boston Celtics (1959-60) and San Antonio Spurs (1995-96). Of course 17 wins is a long way away from the 33-game streak that Wilt Chamberlain’s Los Angeles Lakers managed in 1971-72. But had it not been for some bad weather and two close…

Last week we asked, “Who should the Spurs trade?” The responses were interesting. Everyone on the roster got at least one vote, except Manu Ginobili. Out of 78 votes cast, the leading vote getters were: Michael Finley (11), Beno Udrih (10), Eric Williams, Robert Horry and Jackie Butler (9). Apparently the Spurs won’t be trading anyone, given the latest rumours from San Antonio. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who has the…

Game 46 @ Los Angeles: Spurs 96, Lakers 94 OT Nice shot. Never do that again. That amigos was old school Spurs basketball. On the road, hostile environment, nobody could shoot, the Lakeshow was threatening to run away with it during the entire third quarter, but we just wouldn’t fold. I fucking guarantee you this was Pop’s favorite win of the year because not only did the guys play hard…

Game 44 Vs. Houston: Rockets 90, Spurs 85Happy Wayne Gretzky’s birthday everybody. The best there ever was turned 46 today and I’m guessing he doesn’t care a whole hell of a lot about it since he’s trying to guide the middling Phoenix Coyotes (who?) to respectability. Contrary to popular belief, no, Manu is not my favorite athlete of all time. I don’t even know when his b-day is (it’s July…
