Many have speculated that Kobe Bryant may be the “second coming” of Michael Jordan: an unguardable scorer with the talent and sheer will to carry his team to championships. While this theory does have its merits, its proponents underestimate Kobe’s greatness. I would like to propose a completely different theory that I think offers a much more plausible explanation for the Kobe Phenomenon: Kobe Bryant is the Second Coming of…

I have a great deal of admiration for Kobe’s abilities, and despite Funk’s thoughts to the contrary, scoring 81 points in the NBA, against the Craptors or anyone else, with or without overtimes, is a remarkable feat. (Funk, have you forgotten that Kobe’s season low this season was also against the Craptors, scoring just 11 points in a 102-91 win in Toronto on Dec. 7?) Then again, whether scoring 81…

…where “not in my no-no place!” definitely means “yes.” True, forcibly sodomizing a much smaller, teenaged girl isn’t much of a challenge, but then again, neither is going off on the Craptors (they lost to Yaniv Green and his Israeli team) . For a guy whose championships are over, that had 2 titles faked and given to him (WCF VS. Portland? Sacto? Huge leads miraculously dispappearing in the most statistically…

You’re sitting and watching, and it’s like a miracle unfolding in front of your eyes and you can’t accept it. Somehow, the brain won’t work. The easiest way to look at it is everybody remembers every 50-point game they ever saw. He had 55 in the second half.–Lakers owner Jerry Buss Don’t get me wrong. We here at SpursDynasty hate Kobe Bryant. That being said, Kobe did something truly unimaginable…

CURSE OF THE NEAR-SPURHow many times have we seen a major free agent consider the San Antonio Spurs, then not make the compromises they need to get on the team? Or just blow it badly as a team member? Then their career plummets. How many times? Let’s count: Jason Kidd – forget the title, and Vince Carter saved that franchise from permanently losing postseason aspirations, at least as long as…

The results are in. Which posts were the most popular among Spurs Dynasty readers in 2005? Surprisingly, three of the the top four posts had little to do with the San Antonio Spurs. One thing they all do have in common, though, is the same author: Bramlet Abercrombie, formerly known as the Notorious CBC. #4: Don’t sweat these preseason losses: “Unlike most teams, the Spurs don’t need confidence-building wins against…

So, I fell asleep on the couch, while Bramlet, Dingo, and Casanova watched with baited breath as our Spurs started adjusting on the road, with an injured Manu, against the ECF Miami Heat team that took the Pistons to the ropes and frankly should have advanced to the Finals against us… maybe even beaten our boys in the Black & Silver. (I had too many beers and too little sleep…

As of today, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan are 1st and 2nd in the league for points in the paint. A point guard has never led the league in points in the paint for an entire season, as far as I know. Here is how the top 5 stack up:   TonyParker TimDuncan ShawnMarion CarmeloAnthony LeBronJames HEIGHT 6′ 2″ 6′ 11″ 6′ 7″ 6′ 8″ 6′ 8″ POINTS 496 478…

Four of the Spurs’ young players in Europe are showing that they might be important contributors to the Spurs’ success in the future: Viktor Sanikidze, a Russian small forward who has been injured this season, has apparently made a full recovery. He hasn’t had an opportunity to really prove himself yet because of this injury (I think he’s still only 19), but he has shown enough to be compared to…

You have to admire their honesty. SAN ANTONIO–The San Antonio Spurs announced today that they will not even put forth on effort until the playoffs start in April. The Spurs currently sit atop the Southwest Conference and can pretty much cruise into the postseason without even breaking a sweat. “I’m not trying anymore. That’s it. I’m done,” said forward Tim Duncan. “What’s the point anyway? We can’t suck even if…
