Fran Blinebury (“Sitting Spurs’ stars raises several questions“) has a lot of questions about the Spurs loss to the Nuggets Tuesday night. I’ve got answers: Did Coach Pop give himself a mini-vacation? No. Pop never takes vacation, not even in the off-season. Is there such a thing as a good loss? Or maybe a loss that proves a point? Or even a loss that doesn’t really mean anything at all?…

This news from yesterday’s Austin American-Statesman further validates the Spurs acquisition of Malik Hairston and calling him up to the big game last weekend. Malik Hairston, the Austin Toros’ leading scorer this season, has been selected to play in the NBA D-League All-Star Game. Hairston will play for the blue team, which will be coached by the Toros’ Quin Snyder and his assistant, Wendell Alexis. The 6-foot-6-inch Hairston has averaged…

Whatever his rationale, Pop’s strategy against the Nuggets in Denver last night scared the hell out of me. Sure, I understood that Ginobili needed to rest his bruised hip. “Usually, I would try to argue with (Popovich about sitting),” Ginobili told the San Antonio Express-News on Tuesday. “This time, I didn’t. I woke up really sore.” I also understood that Duncan, Parker and Finley played a lot of minutes Monday…

Wah.(AP Photo/Ben Margot) One would think I’d have been totally geeked for Monday night. My beloved Spurs were in town and my even more beloved Manu was on a bit of a roll. I had tickets, as always, and my girlfriend agreed to cover for me at work and I was finally going to see my SpursDynasty buds again after a long time apart (mostly my fault). But the whole…

In case you haven’t noticed, not a lot has been going on at SpursDynasty.com this season. Because I’d rather blame someone else rather than take personal responsibility, I blame the women in our lives. The Funk, Bramlet and I have wives who, surprise surprise, want us to spend more time with them, and not our computers. Bramlet has a brand new baby girl, so until she learns how to type,…

Let’s see you make a three with Tim riding you like a pony, you cocky shit. (Photo by D. Clarke Evans/NBAE via Getty Images) This might be a little too much information about me, but for various reasons, the girlfriend and I, had our first sexual tryst in about two weeks Sunday night. In the, uh, afterglow, I asked her, embarrassed, “That went bad, didn’t it?” “Well, it wasn’t good,”…

I just got back after a rollicking four day vacation in Vegas, as is our tradition for the NFL’s wildcard weekend. Manoli is all about the journey, so we drove. In an unrelated note, Manolis is insane. Here are the highlights: Thursday – We drove southeast. Our first stop, a bit past Gilroy, was Casa de Fruta, where I came up with the brilliant idea of buying all kinds of…

Game 23: Spurs 109, Thunder 104 Last night’s win over the Thunder didn’t give Spurs fans much reason to celebrate. The Spurs led by 26 in the first half, but then let the worst team in the league cut that lead to a basket in the final minutes. The Thunder began their comeback late in the second quarter. They cut the Spurs’ lead to three points at 100-97 with 2:02…

“I knew what it was going to be out there, and I didn’t want our team to fall into that. We knew how it was going to be, especially going against the league darlings.”-Rasheed Wallace, Detroit Pistons Forward Game 17: Pistons 89, Spurs 77 Maybe he has been smokin’ again1. I don’t know. But I can say without hesitation that Rasheed Wallace is out of his fucking mind if he…

Game 10: Spurs 86, Clippers 83 Unbelievable. Roger Mason’s three-pointer with 8.4 seconds left against the Clippers? Yeah, that was great. What’s unbelievable, though, is that I watched last night’s Spurs-Clippers game on my computer! When Tim Duncan started playing for the Spurs back in 1997, we were still using VCRs to record games. (Bramlet needs a storage unit for all of his VHS tapes.) Now we watch games on…
