The current Spurs dynasty is greater than the 1960s Celtics, so says the numbers

If numbers never lie then the San Antonio Spurs’ current dynasty is the greatest the league has ever seen according to FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver. Using Elo ratings, Silver has determined that since January 3, 1998 the Spurs have played above-average — to say the least — basketball and have kept that streak going for 17 […]

Which free agent point guards should San Antonio have its eye on?

The San Antonio Spurs may be dangerously thin at the point guard position. Tony Parker is no longer a durable starter, and relying on him to play even 75 percent of next season is a risk. Cory Joseph is a restricted free agent who could receive a larger offer sheet than San Antonio is willing to match (that or the team will simply renounce him to get out of his cap hold). And Patty...

Video: Cory Joseph takes his family to school on the court

There’s nothing like making sure your game is in tip-top shape when you’re an NBA player. And what better way to make sure your game is raring to go other than taking your family on the court and making them look silly if you’re San Antonio Spurs guard Cory Joseph. Shot back in January, Joseph […]

Relive the greatest three-pointer ever made on Memorial Day

Considering it is Memorial Day, why not take a step back in time to 1999 in San Antonio at the Alamo Dome where former NBA’er Sean Elliott made what is arguably the greatest basket made on this day – “The Memorial Day Miracle.” With just a mere 12 seconds left on the clock and the Spurs trailing the Blazers 83-85, Elliott found himself with the ball in the corner to launch...

San Antonio Spurs: The Perfect Spur Offseason

  (Source: Al Bello/Getty Images North America) By Ciaran Mills: Staff Writer/Hoopstuff… A first round loss in the playoffs to the Los Angeles Clippers was more than just a defeat. Their game seven loss could signal the changing of the guard, with the old dynasty finally breaking up. Both Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili are in the final year of their contracts, as are bench guys...

The San Antonio Spurs need to consider options at shooting guard

The San Antonio Spurs are a sector for foreign players. Last year, their team contained nine international players. They are the melting pot of the NBA. That leads me to wonder if they are ogling another global guy this summer. In the case of Danny Green, he may be too expensive to keep if the Spurs decide to dip their feet in the free agency pool. If that pertains, they should pursue...

How can Spurs afford another max-contract player?

The San Antonio Spurs are juggling several balls in the air as they head into the summer. Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili's retirement plans, Kawhi Leonard's looming restricted free agency, Danny Green's unrestricted free agency and constant rumors involving big names like LaMarcus Aldridge and Marc Gasol have San Antonio's front office particularly occupied on the eve of the league...

Reviewing Tiago Splitter's 2014-15 season

Spurs center Tiago Splitter is one of the most underrated players in the entire league. He's a big man who's effective on both ends and in the post. He can pass, score and rebound, is efficient and works well beside Tim Duncan. At 30 years old, he averaged 8.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. But how else was his year before breaking down in the playoffs? San Antonio Express-News...

Should the San Antonio Spurs keep Danny Green?

Crunch time begins for the San Antonio Spurs to make some important decisions this off-season. Free agency is right around the corner, and there are some big names available. But there is an unsung hero in the mix that the Spurs need to be cognizant of: Danny Green. Green is on pace to receive a pay raise. He has delivered on his duties as a key role player on this team, spacing...

The San Antonio Spurs need to look to the future

The San Antonio Spurs are one of the most respected teams in all of sports. They have been a dynasty for over a decade now, but don’t all good things come to an end? Who says they have to? If the Spurs play their cards right, they can land a pretty prolific basketball player come this free agency. Winning is second nature to this city, so the franchise must greatly consider making...

Antonio Daniels would be ‘very surprised’ if Tim Duncan retired

After the San Antonio Spurs won their fifth NBA championship since 1999 last season, many wondered if Tim Duncan would retire on top. Instead, Duncan returned for an 18th NBA season and looked like he discovered the Fountain of Youth along the way. While the Spurs failed to advance past the opening round of the...Read More

Gregg Popovich is one of the best coaches in basketball history, having led the San Antonio Spurs to five NBA championships since 1999. He is apparently compensated accordingly. In a recent piece about the future of the Spurs, ESPN’s March Stein noted that Popovich is rumored to be making somewhere in the range of $11...Read More

What’s next for the San Antonio Spurs?

Trying to figure out the future of the San Antonio Spurs is currently an impossible process. It needs to be done in the manner of when you get the DVD of a movie and have multiple alternate endings. San Antonio’s 2014-2015 season came to a heartbreaking end, losing Game Seven of its first-round series to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night. It was a somewhat unusual...

Why not let loose?The San Antonio Spurs did just that after losing Game 7 to the Clippers in LA over the weekend. As it turns out they were ordered by...

San Antonio’s Real Endgame

I have a theory. As far as my theories go it’s not all that crazy, but it’s a possibility nobody’s really talking about. All I know for sure is that, despite coming one errant whistle away from potentially taking Game 7 into overtime, the Spurs were massively outgunned when it comes to star power against the CLippers, and no matter how much development we’ve yet to see...

Looking for the Spurs’ ‘Softness’

After the San Antonio Spurs lost Game 6 in their series against the Los Angeles Clippers, forcing a decisive Game 7 in Los Angeles, head coach Gregg Popovich repeatedly ripped his team for being “soft.” Did the Spurs get blown off the floor? Well, not exactly: they lost the game by the final score 102–96, and they were within two points of the Clippers with just 10 seconds...

Is Kawhi Leonard becoming NBA’s version of WWE antihero?

The San Antonio Spurs have a pretty solid track record of fitting round pegs into square holes. Outside of Tim Duncan, and David Robinson before him, many of their key players shouldn’t belong… at least, not in the way we assumed they would at the time. Tony Parker (1st round, 28th overall pick) was once thought to be a major liability for San Antonio, to the extent that the...
