    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 1

    When Tony Parker won NBA Finals MVP in 2007, it caught many off guard. Tim Duncan won Finals MVP for the Spurs’ first three titles, and he was still an All-NBA first-team player during the 2006-07 regular season. A major of ESPN writers surveyed before Game 4 of San Antonio’s sweep over the Cavaliers chose…

    Jun 5, 2013, 5:01 PM EST

    Warriors' Curry is congratulated by fans in the Warriors' overtime win over the Spurs during Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oakland

    Stephen Curry loves the Warriors. The Warriors love Stephen Curry. Curry just led Golden State to only its second postseason berth since 1994, and to top it off, the Warriors upset the Nuggets in the first round. Just four years into his career, Curry has become one of the NBA’s best and most-exciting players, and…

  4. After a few years Bay Area, Stephen Curry says he’s glad he didn’t fall to Knicks

    May 31, 2013, 12:05 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    Stephen Curry was the No. 7 pick in the 2009 draft — behind Hasheem Thabeet, Tyreke Evans and Jonny Flynn (the last one was the David Kahn head scratcher of that draft). And he was taken one spot ahead of the New York Knicks (who took Jordan Hill). At the time, Curry was bummed he…

    David Lee strained his hip flexor in the first round and was out, except for a couple Willis Reed-like appearances. He wasn’t moving very well.

  7. Mike Conley on verge of stardom as Grizzlies on verge of elimination

    May 26, 2013, 1:39 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    Where is the line between the NBA’s stars and the league’s merely good players? Star is such a loaded term – full of reputation and production and marketing and talent and style – that, occasionally, it can be useful to sort through all the distractions and look at objective measures. Let’s examine players in order…

  8. Andris Biedrins to exercise player option, return to Warriors next season

    May 24, 2013, 1:22 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan drives to the basket against Golden State Warriors Andris Biedrins during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    When a player averages less than one point and three rebounds per game over the course of a season, while possessing the option to come back for another year with the same team at a salary of $9 million, it doesn’t take a degree in advanced economics to figure out what the chosen course of…

  9. Report: Mavericks going to make run at Jarrett Jack, Jerryd Bayless

    May 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

    The Mavericks top off-season goal is to try and sign Dwight Howard. Have fun with that, knowing what we do about Howard it should be a quick and decisive process. But they need more than just a big man. It was evident this season the Mavs need better point guard play, and somebody who can…

  10. Warriors’ Landry faces tough decision: Should he stay or should he go now?

    May 24, 2013, 8:10 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Four

    You get this sense with the Warriors — guys like playing there now. You could feel the team chemistry when you watch them play. They liked each other, they were having fun together. And that was fun to watch. Carl Landry wants to stay a part of that. But the NBA is a business. Landry…

  11. Dwight Howard reportedly adds Hawks and Warriors to his free agent list

    May 23, 2013, 2:47 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    As the Dwight Howard free agency news cycle rolls on, the latest report has him expanding the list of teams he’ll consider signing with this summer.

  12. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  14. GM on Warriors turnaround: “Sense of desperation has passed”

    May 20, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    Just three seasons ago, the Golden State Warriors were a 26-win team with Monta Ellis and Corey Maggette as their two leading scorers — this was a team in need of a radical overhaul. Enter new ownership willing to invest in winning, new players to go with then rookie Stephen Curry, a new coach in…

  15. Spurs have changed a lot since 2011 loss to Grizzlies

    May 19, 2013, 7:11 PM EST

    Kawhi Leonard, Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw, Tim Duncan

    When the Spurs started the 2010-11 season with a 17-3 record – on their way to a conference-best 61-21 finish – Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated profiled a team that no longer resembled previous San Antonio squads. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili had played together under Gregg Popovich since the 2002-03 season, and…

  16. Spurs would like to remind you they are very good, crush Grizzlies in Game 1

    May 19, 2013, 6:35 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The San Antonio Spurs are never the “it” team. Never the sexy squad with high-flying stars casual fans gravitate toward in the postseason. The collective national will was behind Stephen Curry and Golden State last round. Then a whole lot of prognosticators — very smart, good ones — picked Memphis this round. The Grizzlies were…

  18. Harrison Barnes’ playoff scoring surge merely step one of two

    May 17, 2013, 4:23 PM EST

    Harrison Barnes, Cory Joseph

    Harrison Barnes had a solid regular season, making the All-Rookie first team as a debatable choice for that honor. He started 81 games for the playoff-bound Warriors, but Barnes took a back seat to Stephen Curry, David Lee, Klay Thompson, Jarrett Jack, Carl Landry and, when healthy, Andrew  Bogut. Again being the seventh banana on…

  19. Warriors come back on court, Curry thanks fans after loss (VIDEO)

    May 17, 2013, 8:12 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

  20. Spurs ramp up defense to beat Warriors, advance to Western Conference Finals

    May 17, 2013, 2:12 AM EST

    Kawhi Leonard

    The Warriors had a great run, but their magic ran out. In a hard fought, defense driven effort the Spurs defeated the Warriors 94-82 to advance to their 2nd consecutive Western Conference Finals.

  21. Warriors’ Harrison Barnes face plants, eventually leaves game with headaches (VIDEO)

    May 17, 2013, 1:12 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    That hurts to watch. Golden State’s rookie Harrison Barnes was coming from the weak side to contest a Boris Diaw shot, Barnes leapt and Diaw decided to go under for the reverse. It wasn’t intentional, but the end result was Diaw undercut Barnes, took his legs out, and Barnes face planted on the hardwood. He…

  22. Preview: Warriors need better performances from Curry and Thompson to hold off elimination against Spurs

    May 16, 2013, 1:42 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    A closeout game is always the hardest win to get in a series. This is especially true when battling on the road and even more so when that road environment is one of the most raucous in the league. The Spurs, then, have their hands full when they visit Oracle Arena in Oakland and try to…

  23. Tim Duncan shoves Richard Jefferson, then stares him down (VIDEO)

    May 15, 2013, 8:18 PM EST

    tim duncan richard jefferson spurs

    In a rare show of an emotion other than being incredulous at every foul call that has ever gone against him, Tim Duncan gave Richard Jefferson a solid shove to claim the courtside traction pad at some point during Game 5, and then sat on the scorer’s table to stare him down afterward. This probably…

  24. Why do the Knicks keep playing Jason Kidd?

    May 15, 2013, 5:19 PM EST

    D.J. Augustin, Jason Kidd

    Jason Kidd has scored exceptionally during the playoffs. There are many ways to evaluate scoring, but here’s how five players rank by one measure: Jason Kidd: 73 Carmelo Anthony: 24 Stephen Curry: 23 Kevin Durant: 21 LeBron James: 17 That’s how many points each player has scored during the 2013 playoffs, as a percentage of…

  25. Kawhi Leonard puts Harrison Barnes on a poster (VIDEO)

    May 15, 2013, 2:04 AM EST

    Kawhi Leonard

    Kawhi Leonard isn’t a flashy player. In fact, the next time you see him make a fuss about anything on the floor or try to draw attention to himself will be the first time. Most of the time you see him doing the little things that make the Spurs offense work the way it needs…
