Dave D’Alessandro writes in the Sporting News: If memory serves, this season was supposed to be about the Spurs’ coronation — as what, we may never know. A team for the ages, perhaps. Or maybe the last great dynasty until a new era of parity sets in. Or at least “Team of the Decade,” given that they could have been going for their fourth straight championship this spring, if not…

I’m not the only one who thinks the US should have better athletes playing soccer. Neither am I alone in thinking that soccer players are revolutionizing the way basketball is played in the US. Imagine if Americans were able to do for World Cup soccer what Europeans have done for the NBA? Here in America, a German was marking basketball with a kind of creative progress. And there in Germany,…

I suspect that most Spurs fans aren’t watching the NBA Finals between the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat. The two best teams in the NBA already played each other in a 7-game series, and regrettably, the Mavericks won. For Spurs fans, the 2005-2006 basketball season ended on May 22. The Germans aren’t watching the NBA Finals either, despite the fact that the greatest German basketball player since Detlef Schremp is…

Alas, I wish it weren’t true, but Marissa grew up in Santa Cruz, so I shouldn’t be that surprised. Although I do wonder why she isn’t a Warriors fan, instead.

Hitler vs. Osama. Scott Stapp vs. Ted Nugent. Kenneth Lay vs. Jeffrey Dahmer. Halliburton vs. the Empire. The Decepticons vs. the Borg. Mark “I Wanna Smoke a” Cuban‘s Mavericks vs. Shaquille “Deal a Meal” O’Neal’s Heat. In my post-elimination depression, I was going to avoid watching the Finals, but I’ve decided, uncharacteristically, to suck it up and be a good sport (of sorts) about this travesty. That, of course, means…

I can’t decide which is stranger: Former San Antonio Spur, and current Dallas Mavericks coach, Avery Johnson has been married for 14 years. Avery’s wife, Cassandra, assaulted a Suns fan and made an obscene gesture during her husband’s team’s loss in Game 4. Cassandra assaulted Rebecca Kettle and Jose Martinez because they kept standing and cheering, blocking the view of her children. She claims she asked them to “not get…

The 2006-2007 Spurs are beginning to take shape. Robertas “The Lithuanian Beast” Javtokas is on his way, and Ian “Hasn’t Done Enough to Warrant a Nickname Yet” Mahinmi is set to show the summer leagues some defensive domination. (Apparently 19-year-old wunderkind Viktor Sanikidze is also set to play for the Spurs’ summer league team, but I don’t think there’s been any official word on that yet.) Spurs draft pick Javtokas…

This year, I think our only major free agent action will be with our European studs. But it’s nice to know that players feel this way: Utah not high on wish list for NBA players According to a Sports Illustrated poll of 248 NBA players, 27 percent named the Jazz as the team (other than they’re own) for which they would least like to play. Toronto was second at 16…

I still think the Heat are going to win this series, and beat the Suns in the Finals. I just wanted to share this picture with the SpursDynasty family.

In case you missed this last May, consider this a Christmas gift from your friends at SpursDynasty. Merry Christmas! Coach Gregg Popovich shoots straight about wine By Kristiana Kahakauwila From Wine Spectator magazine, May 31, 2006 issue San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich’s biggest nightmare has nothing to do with basketball. He’s not worried about a weak defense or an undisciplined team; after all, the Texas team, led by…
