@INSANE99 You're confusing your seasons. Manu broke his elbow the yr the Spurs finished #1 in the West. The yr they finished #7 they beat Dallas in the first rd. and then got swept by the Suns. That was the yr. Manu broke his nose vs. Dallas (Remember he had that big ol' maxi-pad on his nose).

They called a foul on that last block.

Everybody steals from everybody, Spurs included. For instance, from Sloan's Jazz and even parts of the triangle.
3 months ago on The NBA is Watching the Spurs and Changing Their Tune
This game showed that it is still a process with Kawhi on the offensive end. If he wants to get where he wants to get, he needs to understand that he has to be aggressive every game. He can't take nights off on offense and be passive. But that will come with time as he figures out how best to attack on any given night.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Video: Kawhi Leonard Full Highlights vs Jazz
The Heat/Spurs rivalry has a new element: which brittle boned baller makes more of a contribution.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on 10 years later, Spurs finally get Josh Howard
Can you stop bringing up the phantom Ray Allen travel--he did not. If he travelled, then Parker travelled on his step-back three. Neither travelled and Neal is right--it never should have come to that.
5 months, 1 week ago on Ex-Spur Neal says Finals loss will be hard to get over
Watching a little Belinelli at EU basket, I was pleasantly surprised at his passing off the pick-n-roll. If you squint you're eyes, Marco looks like an old Manu making cross court passes for open 3s. Notice, I said an old Manu. A young Manu there is no comparison.

@alamoaggie08 @merkin No, I think he is putting his psychology degree to good use.
6 months, 3 weeks ago on Hibbert trains with Duncan, thanks Spurs
Don't think this is purely a selfless act. No, TD is also scouting Roy for the 2x they play each other. Ever since Roy started working with Tim, Tim's been able to keep Roy in check when Spurs play Pacers b/c he knows what moves and where on the floor Roy likes.
It's really going to come down to Diaw: if he stays in shape and shows the requisite commitment, then the Spurs will bring him back given his versatility and BB IQ.
6 months, 4 weeks ago on Diaw taking a wait-and-see approach with future in San Antonio
Jeff, you do know that playing in the D-League would have taken up a Spurs roster spot--yes? Going overseas is the best way for him to play while not taking up a Spurs roster spot.
6 months, 4 weeks ago on Report: Deshaun Thomas to play in Spain
Forget Oden, Spurs need to see if Baynes is a keeper, otherwise why did they sign him . . . to play for the Toros.

@autrader1 Preferably all 3.
7 months, 1 week ago on Report: Richards to play basketball in Dubai next season
@Spursfan66 Right on the money. The Austrian League he played in last season looked like a bunch of high-schoolers, I can only imagine what Dubai will look like.
Mills is not a point guard, he's a 2-guard in a PG's body. He doesn't have the play making capabilities necessary to be a good pg--he's a gunner. Like Neal's short-lived experiment at pg, Mill's value is simply as a shooter and offensive spark off the bench.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Mills discusses playing for Spurs and more
This is good news. The last thing you want is KL needlessly putting added stress on that knee. You know, being a gymrat, he's gonna be working hard during the offseason and rather that than this. It seems like this summer, Spurs management asked some guys to bypass international competition for personal work and rest (Splitter, Manu and now KL). If only the French contingent (mainly, Parker) were as accommodating.
7 months, 4 weeks ago on Spurs' Leonard won't participate in USA Basketball Mini-camp
@aespurs If I'm not mistaken, you can't do that--even if you send him to the D-League he still takes up a roster spot, ala Joseph and Baynes and Nando last season. They all counted as roster spots regardless if they were in the D-League or w/ Spurs.
7 months, 4 weeks ago on Buford discusses Thomas and possibility of earning 15th roster spot
I hope Neal doesn't resign (quit), I hope he re-signs, but I'd also like to see Thomas make the team.
7 months, 4 weeks ago on On Deshaun Thomas And The Spurs Final Roster Spot
As a backup 3, he can prob. guard opposing backup 3's. But I think his biggest strength would be playin' with KL as the small ball 4. To take a recent example: he would've been ideal guarding a guy like Miller (easy) while being able to go at him on offense.
8 months ago on Deshaun Thomas has eyes on Spurs back up small forward spot
Let'im play, he's not expected to get big (30+) minutes w/ the Spurs so fatigue wouldn't be a factor. I would much rather see Parker sit this one out, he's been playin' way too much basketball the last couple years.
