Game 2 recap, whee…

Manu Ginobili better make some room on his mantle. In addition to the accolades already earned by the gifted Argentine — two Lega A Most Valuable Player awards, the Euroleague 2000-01 Final Four MVP award, the 2001 Euroleague Championship, 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist and three NBA Championships — Ginobili has now been recognized as the NBA’s best sixth man. We here at SpursDynasty congratulate Manu Ginobili, but we know better….

Game One vs. Phoenix: Spurs 117, Suns 115 (2OT) So… what’d I miss? What, no bankshot?(Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via Getty Images) Just kidding, I watched the game. I watched it while alternately cussing, screaming, clapping, yelling, giving myself high fives, doing Tiger fist pumps, and at the end bellowing out “JI-NOH-BLEEE” like a more maniacal version of the Chuckster. “I SAID MA-NOOO JI-NOH-BLEEE!!!!” Jesus on a boat what a…

The 2008 playoffs just started an hour ago and conventional wisdom has it that the Celtics will face the Lakers in the Finals and the San Antonio Spurs’ season might be over two weeks from now. No doubt, with all the drama of last year’s series, when Robert Horry checked Steve Nash into the scorer’s table during game four and Amare Stoudamire and Boris Diaw were suspended for game five…

For the record, here are my quickie playoff picks. Feel free to make yours…East 1) Boston over 8) Atlanta in four. I’d love for something cute to happen just to frustrate Simmons, but the Hawks were running on fumes for the past two months just trying to hold on to the last spot and are obviously thrilled just to be here. 2) Detroit over 7) Philadelphia in six. A terrible…

Game 82 vs. Utah: Spurs 109, Jazz 80 Well that sure was a different slice of meatloaf than the hard, crusty, flavorless but sure as heck not odorless brick of dog crap we’ve had forced down our gullets for the past two weeks, eh? The Spurs played defense. The Spurs hit open shots. The Spurs (waitforitWaitForItWAITFORIT!!!!) actually RAN A FAST BREAK or ten. This, ladies and germs is the team…

Just to prove how wild the West has been this year, with one game left in the regular season, the Spurs could finish as high as second and as low as sixth. My concern is that they’ll finish third, which isn’t good news. More on that in a second. Two weeks ago I asked our readers, “Who will the Spurs play in the first round of the playoffs?“ As of…

I’d like to personally thank the 18 managers who participated in the 2007-2008 Spurs Dynasty Fantasy Leagues on Yahoo! Sports and congratulate our finalists: San Antonio Spurs Dynasty (ID# 4323) Final:  (1) Terremoto Williams vs (3) Chile Verde 3rd Place Game:  (4) Kilgore Rockets vs (2) Chicago_dx San Antonio Spurs Dynasty II (ID# 108780) Final:  (4) Boston Celtix vs (2) DeadMoney 3rd Place Game:  (1) Belarus Zubrs vs (3) Guacamole Interestingly enough, only two…

Consider this: The New Orleans Hornets are in first place in the West, tied with the Spurs. The Spurs have the longest active winning streak in the league at 7 games. This comes after starting off the month of March with a 5-5 record. The Dallas Mavericks are occupying the 7th seed in the West, but are only a game ahead of the 9th seed Nuggets. Smart money says the…

If the playoffs started today, the Spurs would face the Denver Nuggets. But with just three games separating the top six teams in the West, and 5.5 games separating the top 9 teams, I leave it to the wisdom of SpursDynasty readers to answer the latest poll question: Who will Spurs play in first round? Golden State Warriors Dallas Mavericks Denver Nuggets Houston Rockets Phoenix Suns Utah Jazz Los Angeles…
