Well, there goes the dream of an undefeated season. The Spurs got whupped on by Cleveland up, down, and sideways. How thorough was the beating? Well, the Cavs shot it better from the field, from downtown, and from the line. I think they even had more dunks. In fact I’m sure of it. Also, they out rebounded us, both offensively and overall, had more steals, more blocks, fewer turnovers, and…

Yes, the Spurs got spanked on their own floor by LeBron and Co. last night. But despite that ugly fact, it’s a good day to be a Spurs fan. Of course, the astute and loyal fan will ask, “When is it not?” The astute and loyal fan is a smartass. Of course it’s always a good day to be a Spurs fan—my stating it is merely a rhetorical flourish to…

There were four stories in Dallas last night … 1. Josh Howard committed assualt and battery on Bruce Bowen Howard was called for a flagrant foul on Spurs tough-guy Bruce Bowen (“A situation happened where I got to protect myself,” Howard said) … 2. Francisco Elson stuffed Erick Dampier … and Elson got a technical for taunting when he shrieked after a dunk (“All I did was scream!” he protested…

I’ll have to take these sentiments by Bramlet in order so I don’t lose my train of thought… First and foremost, I have to declare that I am 99.9% certain that at no time this season or any subsequent seasons will you ever catch me pining for ‘Sho or T-Rex. They both had their moments of… well greatness isn’t the word certainly, but let’s just say moments of adequateness. In…

Before we get the glorious new NBA season underway – a season in which, ***spoiler alert***, the Spurs will once again reclaim the NBA crown after a failed title defense, I have a couple of things to get off my chest and out of my craw. The first and more minor issue is the Nazr- and Rasho-bashing that so many Spurs fans engaged in all summer. Are they flawed players…

John Hollinger of ESPN.com says that on a per 40 minutes basis, that Jackie Butler is the 6th best center in the NBA and Beno Udrih is the 23rd best point guard. Frankly, this kind of thing has me upset already and the season hasn’t started yet. Whenever the bench struggles behind the play of Findog, Roho, Bonner, Elson and Bones we’re going to have stupid ammunition to fire at…

First of all, I never promised to be insightful or intelligent. That’s a bald faced lie and I demand that you apologize. In the words of T.O., “DON’T YOU DISRESPECT ME LIKE THAT.” Secondly, I’ve got some big news, for me anyway. I’m going to be in this month’s DIME Magazine, the one with T-Mac on the cover. They came up with the idea of having NBA bloggers do their…
