    This Day In Sports History (June 23rd) – San Antonio Spurs

    It was on this day in 2005 that the San Antonio Spurs and Detroit Pistons played Game 7 of the NBA Finals.  The Spurs won the game 81-74 to win the franchise’s third championship. The Spurs easily handled their first three opponents of the playoffs, beating the Denver Nuggets in five games, the Seattle Supersonics […]

    Picture Of The Day: Tony Allen Has A Grizzly Hairdo

    Memphis guard Tony Allen went into his local barbershop and asked for “the Grizzly cut.”  This is what he got. Allen isn’t the only one who can’t get the Grizzlies out of his hair.  The Spurs seem to be having the same problem during their opening round best-of-seven series, as they currently find themselves trailing […]

    Kobe Bryant Gets A Technical, Calls the Ref A “F-ing Fag” (Video)

    With the playoffs set to begin in only a few days and home-court advantage in the first round already secured for the Lakers, one would think that their game last night against the San Antonio Spurs would be somewhat meaningless.  Well don’t tell that to Kobe Bryant. The Black Mamba seemed poised to end the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/14/11 — Chris Bosh

    At this time last week things were not looking good for the Miami Heat as they found themselves in the midst of a five-game losing streak.  At that point, the boys at the Hip Hop Junkies figured it would be a good idea to create another anti-Chris Bosh video, this one titled “The Boshtrich.” Although […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/17/11 — Derrick Rose

    In a battle between two of the NBA’s best teams, it was a career-best performance from the NBA’s best point guard that would prove to be the difference.  The San Antonio Spurs have three great guards of their own in Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Gary Neal, but they were no match for the Chicago […]

    Raptors Fans Watch Team Lose 111-100, Go Wild For Free Pizza (Video)

    Perhaps one of the greatest promotions in the entire NBA comes from the Air Canada Center in Toronto, where Raptors fans are awarded one free pizza from Pizza Pizza if their team can reach 100 points.  Once the Raptors reach the century mark in any home game, those in attendance can use their ticket stub […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/1/11 – LaMarcus Aldridge

    Not many teams have had success against the San Antonio Spurs this season, and the odds appeared to be stacked against the Portland Trail Blazers last night.  Playing without two key players in Brandon Roy and Greg Oden for most of the year, the Blazers have had a much more difficult time finding wins compared […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/5/11 — Rajon Rondo

    The Boston Celtics and the San Antonio Spurs met last night at the TD Garden in what was a battle between the NBA’s top two teams, and despite being without the services of Kevin Garnett, the Celtics still managed to come out on top, thanks to a monster performance from their point guard, Rajon Rondo. […]

    Picture Of The Day: Size Mismatch?

    If you thought this image was photoshopped, think again. To the left we have the 5’5″, 133-pound, former Denver Nugget and current Milwaukee Buck, Earl Boykins.  And to the right, we have the 6’11″, 260-pound San Antonio Spurs’ center, Tim Duncan.  With 18 inches and 127 pounds separating these two foes, referring to this as […]

    BOOM Head Shot (GIF)

    The Orlando Magic’s Dwight Howard is no stranger to slamming a basketball over an opponent’s head.  However, he usually does so by getting up in the air and using his big body to throw down a nasty dunk over the outstretched hand of a defender, rather than by whipping the ball off an opponent’s head. […]

    J.R. Smith Makes A Poster Over Gary Neal’s Head (Video)

    Let me guess how all this transpired. The Denver Nuggets’ J.R. Smith probably approached the San Antonio Spurs’ Gary Neal at some point during the game and the following conversation ensued: J.R.:  “Look dude, I’m trying to make myself a wicked awesome poster so that I have something to give all of my family members […]

    Suns Players Try To Duplicate Nash’s Performance, Shoot With One Eye

    The Phoenix Sun’s Steve Nash has had quite the career, winning two NBA MVP awards, three Lionel Conacher Awards (Canadian Male Athlete of the Year), and being named to seven NBA All-Star games.  Heading into the post-season, there were only two things that have eluded the 36-year-old point guard: a series victory over the San […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/29/10 – Manu Ginobili

    This one was almost over before it started. I’m talking about game 6 between the Spurs and Mavericks, although if I was talking about the whole series that would work too. The Spurs opened up a huge 22-8 lead at the end of the first quarter and ended up with a 97-87 victory. They took […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 4/27/10 — Caron Butler

    Caron Butler has not played well in the playoffs so far, watching his team limp to a 3-1 deficit in their series against the San Antonio Spurs.  The Mavericks are the 2-seed and although the Spurs are a tough draw at the 7-seed, Dallas’s performance has been a disappointment.  New acquisition Butler was even benched […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/21/10 – Tim Duncan

    Tim Duncan is The Big Fundamental. And that’s so boring, right? All those All-Star appearances, championship rings, MVP trophies, All-Defensive teams, Rookie of the Year…what a drag. Can’t you do any cool, flying dunks, man? C’mon! Duncan was at it again last night as the Spurs battled the Mavericks in Dallas. Down 1-0 in the […]
