It’s free to play with a Yahoo account. You’ll need a League ID# and Password to join. Email me at [dingo at spursdynasty dot com] for details. Our league is head-to-head, with 13 roster positions — PG, SG, G,…

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich trimmed his beard just in time to waive Salim Stoudamire and receive some accolades in the league’s annual general managers survey. The GMs named Popovich the league’s best coach, ahead of Phil Jackson and Jerry Sloan. They also cited him as the coach who makes the best in-game adjustments and the coach who is best in the final two minutes of a close game and the…

Jeff McDonald writes for the Express-News: Five games into the preseason, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich still hasn’t trimmed his training camp roster — and might not any time soon. There are seven players — Anthony Tolliver, Salim Stoudamire, Darryl Watkins, Desmon Farmer, Malik Hairston, Devin Green and Charles Gaines — competing for a maximum of two roster spots. Popovich has until Oct. 27 to cut the roster to 15. Before…

Tony discusses being on the cover of EA Sports NBA Live 09, his game, Eva Longoria and his picks for 5 best Point Guards in the Western Conference.

“Had he not hurt it in the Olympics, he probably would have done it 15, 25, 35 games into the season. It could be a blessing that he’s gotten operated on. His ankle probably would be in better shape now than it’s been in years.”– Coach Gregg Popovich, on Manu Ginobili’s offseason ankle surgery I hope Pop is right. Please, God, let Pop be right.

In case you haven’t already heard, the bad news about Ginobili has gotten worse. Or better, depending on your perspective. Elizabeth White writes for the Associated Press: San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, who helped lead Argentina to a bronze medal in the Beijing Olympics, will need surgery to repair a ligament injury in his left ankle. “They’re going to operate on me,” the 31-year-old Ginobili told Argentina’s La Nacion…

Younger Spurs fans may not recognize the name, but I remember the excitement a lot of us felt when the Spurs drafted the 7’0″ big man out of Eastern Illinois University in 1986. My excitement didn’t last long — we traded Duckworth to the Portland Trailblazers after he played just 14 games. It was difficult watching Duckworth after that, thinking about what might have been had he stayed in San…

My friend Kevin attended a celebrity bowling event last night in Washington, DC hosted by Roger Mason, Jr. — DC native and newly acquired San Antonio Spurs Guard. Kevin writes: Talking with Roger, he plans to stay in DC during the offseason and holidays. I asked him if I could rent his house while he was in San Antonio, but no dice on that one. I could have really taken…

The 2008 NBA Draft is tomorrow, and as a consequence of their continued success, the Spurs find themselves, once again, with dim prospects. The Spurs have three picks — 26th, 45th and 57th overall — and history tells us that there won’t be much talent available this deep in the draft. Or maybe there will be. Consider these recent picks. In 2006, Jordan Farmar was picked 26th, Daniel Gibson 42nd,…

It’s hard to believe that the San Antonio Spurs 2007-2008 season ended just six days ago. It didn’t end where we thought it would, but it sure was one helluva ride. I’d like to thank my fellow contributors — Michael, Brantley, Jake, Kevin and Rene — for making this site a reality. More importantly, I’d like to thank you for reading and for joining us. We had over 100,000 readers…
