Is Tony Parker the key to the Spurs’ season? The San Antonio Spurs just had the best offseason in franchise history, and arguably one of the best NBA offseasons ever. They landed a bona fide superstar in his prime; re-signed their own budding superstar to a reasonable deal; convinced their two veteran stalwarts to return for less than market value; convinced their valuable wing player who perfectly complements the team…

This morning we learned that the Spurs invited Rasual Butler to training camp. Adrian Wojnarowski explained why: Hadn't been only Rasual Butler's shooting and play impressing Spurs in pre-camp open gym, but leadership w/ young players. He has a chance. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) September 28, 2015 Is this a big deal? Maybe. Here’s what we think and what Spurs fans should keep in mind. Stephen Hale: “Butler brings length…

With a team like our San Antonio Spurs, it’s often difficult to say any single player is the best, or the most important, or the most valuable. Then again, we all know that this team, despite it’s egalitarianism, has always rested firmly on the shoulders of one player when it comes to crunch time and playoff success. From 1998 to 2005, that player was Tim Duncan. No one would argue…

Can October 28 get here already? Man, this is going to be a fun season! Just when we thought the wheels were slowly coming off our San Antonio Spurs, after 18 years of wear and tear, RC Buford and Co went and nabbed THE top free agent in the NBA: LaMarcus Aldridge. Resign Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan, then add David West to the mix, and you have to believe…

Well, Spurs fans, we got what we wanted. The Spurs are the darlings of free agency 2015 – something our grandchildren will have a really hard time believing one day, and something I still have a hard time believing myself. In the time it takes to blink, the Spurs acquired the consensus No. 1 pick on the market, former Portland Blazer LaMarcus Aldridge; re-signed Kawhi Leonard to a max deal; somehow…

What are you doing with your summer? Whatever it is, it’s not nearly as awesome as what the Spurs’ front office is doing. I ran a half-marathon the morning of July 4th, which isn’t nothing. After crossing the finish line, cooling down, drinking some Powerade and eating some watermelon, I retrieved my phone. Like most Spurs fans, I had been getting anxious, awaiting news on LaMarcus Aldridge. Could he really…

Silver, black and white confetti rains onto the court of the AT&T Center for the first time in 12 years1. LeBron James sulks out of the arena, wondering how this could have happened two years in a row. How could that team, half of whose players arrived to the arena wielding canes or walkers, have sent him into the offseason with a swift kick in the pants and a ‘thank…

2015 Western Conference Playoffs First Round San Antonio 109, Los Angeles Clippers 111 Clippers win series 4-3 The main draw of the night was a boxing match, but the best fight of the night happened on a basketball court. What a game. It’s wrong to think of this as any failing on the Spurs’ part: this was a success for the Clippers. Over 7 games, the Spurs outscored the Clippers…

Stephen, Andrew, Noriel and I discuss: what happened in game 6 Thursday night, whether the fault lies with Pop and our players, or whether the Clippers and Doc Rivers deserve credit for the win. whether it’s better to try to slow down Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, or focus more on their supporting players. what’s happened in the other NBA playoff series. what we think needs to happen and will…

2015 Western Conference Playoffs First Round San Antonio 96, Los Angeles Clippers 102 Series tied 3-3 The San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers have played 6 consecutive games, and we’re still left with more questions than answers. In a series that always wants to zag when it seems as if it should zig, I guess this is not all surprising. We’ve had three straight road wins, and four (out…
