Manu Ginobili tries to drive past Dwight Howard on Christmas Day 2013 The Spurs are playing Christmas Day again this year and we should be excited. The Spurs are being featured on national television, playing a weird team Rockets team that they should definitely beat, and they get to wear some pretty sweet jerseys while they do it (they’re Uni-Watch approved!). Unfortunately, we can’t start celebrating just yet, because San…

Season 49, Game 28 San Antonio 114, Los Angeles Clippers 107 23-5, 2nd in the West This is why we brought LaMarcus Aldridge to San Antonio. Last year’s season-ending series against the Clippers was, above all else, agonizing. It was hard fought, well played, and exhilarating basketball. But for Spurs fans, it was agonizing. Not just the losing, and not just the manner of losing, but what the losing might…

His coaches and teammates call him Bobi. Some fans call him ‘The Bobinator’. All in the basketball world know that the 7-foot 3-inch, 290-pound Goliath from Serbia is a wonder to watch. ‘Boban Mania’ is upon us and, much like his dunk, there is little anyone can do to stop it. I can remember the first time I witnessed his large frame entering a preseason game at the AT&T Center…

They might not be in first place in the West or on the top of anyone’s power rankings, but there’s one thing the San Antonio Spurs are surely the best at: flying under-the-radar. By design, and by virtue of Golden State having the most dominant start to an NBA season in the history of the association, the Spurs have drawn very little attention to their pretty good 22-5 start. How…

Season 49, Game 27 San Antonio 114, Washington 95 22-5, 2nd in the West The Wizards were owed one, and the Spurs weren’t going to let them off. The Wizards beat the Spurs way back before we knew how great this Spurs team was. Now, weeks later, this new dominant Spurs squad had every motivation to lay into the struggling Wizards. Except that’s not how the Spurs are wired. They…

There are only 9 days left until Christmas, so if you’ve been procrastinating, today is the day to get on it. I’m going to make this easy for you. The Spurs fans on your list don’t want another tie (do people still wear ties?) or a vest they’ll never wear (Thanks, Grandma). They want Spurs schwag. Our picks are below. (Btw, if you click on these images, you’ll be taken…

Here’s the deal, guys. The Spurs are really good. I know that sounds basic, but I am not sure it needs to be any more in depth. If you are anything like me, you watch the Spurs and complain about Danny Green, you curse LaMarcus Aldridge for not making EVERYTHING, and you roll your eyes when Boris actually does miss a reverse layup. In short, we demand perfection. The Silly…

Season 49, Game 26 San Antonio 118, Utah 81 21-5, 2nd in the West The Spurs beat the Sixers by 51; they beat the Hawks by 25; now they’ve beaten the Jazz by 37… and that was with Utah making up some ground in extended garbage time. Brett Brown, Mike Budenholzer, and Quin Snyder – all coming from the Spurs’ system – have all felt the Spurs’ wrath in the…

Earlier today, I read an interesting article about Golden State Warriors assistant coach Bruce Fraser in the San Francisco Chronicle: “The Curry Whisperer: Shot guru Fraser has MVP’s ear.” Why do I mention this here, on a San Antonio Spurs fansite? Because Warriors Beat Writer Rusty Simmons tells a story about Fraser which will sound oddly familiar to Spurs fans, like us, who were avid readers of Grantland. Back in…

Season 49, Game 25 San Antonio 103, Atlanta 78 20-5, 2nd in the West The Golden State Warriors finally lost. The Warriors have been the story of the NBA season; hell, they’ve been the dominant story of the entire sports universe. I don’t say this with envy or malice. They deserve it. The team is playing amazing basketball, led by an improbably great player who has a skill that transcends…
