well as Pop says (always does), having number 1 seed doesn't matter just as long as the Spurs are healthy (of course, everyone probably already knew that). I think having a first round match-up with either Dallas, Phoenix, or even Memphis should be easy in my opinion, but some might disagree with me about Memphis.
I think they could get through Golden State if they met in the first round, but just the thought of how they made it interesting against SA last playoffs would make it scary.
1 day, 15 hours ago on The Spurs are the No. 1 seed, but does it matter?
to answer where the team goes from here, I'm not sure, but it's sickening that players are probably passing SA up due to "small market" reasons and/or maybe the fact they're considered "old" (which I keep saying only the CORE is old...and well Bonner too). yet these same players praise the team as they should hence the franchise being successful especially since Duncan joined in '97.
as I saw somebody mention this in another post and this is referring to the "small market" thing, it does seem that because SA is small, most American players don't feel comfortable having to live there (and the fact that some of those players are GREEDY, and probably too greedy if you ask me) and prefer living in the bigger market cities like LA, NYC, Miami, Chicago, etc. however, if it was like foreign players, they wouldn't mind living in SA because they only feel good that they are at least living in the US. I know that may sound odd, but as we should already know, most of our team right now were not born in the US.
1 week, 4 days ago on Report: Butler to sign with Thunder
Butler would be ok, but I don't think we're gonna get him nor do I think Spurs will try to push for him.
and unfortunately, I have the bad feeling that we may lose out on Granger if Clippers staff really threw in words to convince to go there. this is why I'm hoping Coach Pop and RC will come up with words that will sway him to SA and not LA.
and if SA doesn't get him, it looks like just another situation where they are fighting for a player against another team and seems that they (SA) get screwed over every time.

well so much for Earl Clark, he's going to the Knicks. (although in a good way, he's not going to any other contender)
2 weeks ago on A rundown of the NBA's buyout market
I'd rather go for Granger or Clark before anyone else.
@Judas_210 @quixem@projectspurshow could I forget about the reuniting with Boylen and Ayres (formerly Pendergraph). now I really hope that if Philly waives Granger, he'd join SA!
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Report: Spurs could sign Granger following buy out
I'll just say it wouldn't surprise me if Spurs don't do anything regarding Danny Granger and Glen Davis being thrown around, but it would be interesting if they do push for either of the two (more likely Granger in my opinion).
@RockheadTG ok, who the hell are you and why did you even bother coming here when this is your FIRST comment here ever on this blog? I clicked on your name and saw that.
first of all, anything SPORTS related does not count, meaning FC Dallas (which who pays attention to soccer?), Rangers, Cotton Bowl, and what should be NO LONGER "America's team" Cowboys. I was referring things significant or historical that's good. and to be honest, never heard of the State Fair, and that tower doesn't seem to be THAT famous to me.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Mark Cuban bashes SA's famed River Walk... again
@jhheinI'm actually referring to something that's not SPORTS related that Dallas was ever famous for. but even if I was including that, is THAT a good thing? sure Cowboys were good in the 90s but ever since have been bad, especially NOW. plus that's Jerry's team who's probably much as delusional as Cuban is right now.
unclassy bastard rants again. all he's doing is making himself look like an a-hole who's trying to make sure that this Mavs-Spurs matchup is still a "BIG" rivalry even for this season. I really hope those Mavs end up struggling and losing and then make their douchebag owner look even more stupid where they'll miss playoffs for the 2nd straight time, which I still believe that Mavs will miss it.
by the way, not our fault that the River Walk doesn't look that pretty considering it's a REAL river. what the hell is Dallas known for?

I don't think Spurs have to worry about the first bullet due to Bradley being banged up and possibly doubtful for the game tonight
3 weeks, 6 days ago on 5 things to watch: Spurs vs. Celtics featuring Red's Army
I mentioned this elsewhere, what really irritated me is that Spurs got into the bonus early in the 4th and I was expecting more attacking to the rim, however the guys decided to rely on taking jumpers and that's where they weren't scoring because they weren't hitting them, which explains why Duncan and Parker weren't putting in points (well even though Parker was playing through a shin injury)

Mavericks at 2nd? those fans that are going to attend the rest of their home games better prepare to see a disappointment record-wise and even witness them lose at their American Airlines Center home more. just saying because at some point, I expect the Mavs to be not in one of the 8 spots and eventually lead them to missing the playoffs for a 2nd straight year.
although I can possibly say the same with Bulls since they are without Rose again and now Deng is traded. but then again, I was expecting them to be a better team and with Rose healthy too.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Spurs among top ten leaders in attendance midway through the season
and to add to the top part of Spurs chances, I'm referring to the coaches' voting in reserves of course.
2 months ago on Not looking good for San Antonio Spurs for All-Star Game
chances are that someone from the Spurs is still making the All-star team because they are one of the top 3 teams again and as of now 1st in west. I think even if they stick around at 3rd in western conference, I'd be surprised if there's nobody representing SA for the All-star game.
plus with injuries to other players, there are likely some deserving players that will take place, for example the ball hogger from LAL. I agree with ajd21 that it's a joke he's still getting votes when he only played 6 games this season so far and missing more games as it continues right now, even more of a joke when his Lakers are once again losing at this point.
ok, December 26th can't come any faster, I want to see the Spurs DEMOLISH the Magical Ponies and see what the ex has to say afterwards.

3 months, 1 week ago on Analyzing the Loss: Spurs 88, Thunder 94
in time, these Mavericks will start dropping games and at some point Blair will do terrible when needed. you look at the teams they won against already (Hawks, Grizzlies, Lakers, Bucks, Wizards), those teams are ones that are not subjected as big playoff teams (the Grizzlies could get it together, but for right now they have struggled so far). we'll see how the Mavs do in the next 4 games which they are at Miami, at Orlando, vs Philadelphia, vs Houston. I can see them lose 3 of the 4. I can't see them winning against Heat in Miami that's certain; Orlando may be the one they could win for sure; 76ers are surprising the league and still doing it after winning against Rockets so they can lose even in their American Airlines Center home; and I see Rockets being tough against the Mavs as well (and Rockets already won the first match-up against them earlier).

I honestly don't think they look bad, but I did like last year's though.
I don't hate the sleeves, but the more the league goes with putting the sleeves on more jerseys, the more the NBA players are going to look like soccer players.
