Adidas and the NBA will tell you that the sleeved jerseys are selling faster than they had projected, which is why you are seeing more of them (including the “Latin Nights” series of games, that are going on this month) . All-Star weekend commissioner Adam Silver said math showed that shooting percentages were almost identical…

In the first meeting of the season between the Heat and the Spurs, Miami had little trouble securing victory in the Finals rematch, in large part due to the fact that the Spurs were cobbling together a lineup that didn’t entirely feature the team’s best players. The rematch of the rematch, however, saw the Spurs…

It’s so hard to get a good read on just how good San Antonio really is during the regular season. Sure, they are 40-16 overall, second best record in the West and fourth best in the NBA, but they are 3-11 against the rest of the top five in the West and the top two…

It was basically a big game of telephone. NBA Greece posted a story about how after the 2016 Rio Olympics San Antonio’s Tony Parker was going to retire from international play. That gets seen by some San Antonio television broadcasters and suddenly the rumor is “Tony Parker is going to retire in 2016.” No. No…

Tony Parker played in the All-Star Game last weekend with a sprained hand. That’s not to mention his sore back, groin, shin/calf, and hip that he has played through recently. Actually, it might just be quicker to list the places where Tony Parker is not banged up. Which is why the Spurs are going to…

Tim Duncan wasn’t an All-Star this season mostly because he didn’t want to be, the other coaches around the NBA knew that and went with younger faces. But he is still as solid as ever — 15.6 points a game, 10 rebounds a night, a true shooting percentage of 53.6 and a PER of 22.…

A week from now the eyes of the basketball world will be on New Orleans for the NBA’s Damian Lillardapalooza. … er, I mean the NBA’s All-Star weekend. While Sunday’s All-Star Game is the big show, I’ve always found Saturday night’s series of skill contests more fun than the no-D exhibition that is the All-Star…

A Spurs team without many of its stars can still prove difficult for opponents to deal with, in large part because of the way San Antonio consistently stacks its team with players perfectly suited to perform in the highly-disciplined system engineered by tenured head coach Gregg Popovich. That was true for a while in Thursday…

The Spurs will have more players left than the Los Angeles Lakers… but it’s getting close. Both Tony Parker and Tim Duncan are out for the Spurs Thursday night as they continue their rodeo trip and face the Brooklyn Nets, something the Spurs announced early Thursday. No, there will be no fines for this one…

Leave it to Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich to make light of an otherwise less-than-stellar situation. San Antonio needed to expend more energy than perhaps was necessary in securing a double-overtime win over the Wizards on Wednesday, though they did it without Tony Parker for much of it. Parker played less than 19 minutes and…

A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

The Spurs have signed Shannon Brown to a 10-day contract, a move announced on Saturday via official release. The team also released Othyus Jeffers, whom they had previously called up from the D-League on a 10-day contract following the injury to Kawhi Leonard. Brown played well for the Phoenix Suns over the last two seasons,…

In the second half of the third quarter Wednesday night, the Chicago Bulls went on a 14-3 run and started to create a little separation between themselves and the San Antonio Spurs. The Bulls were more aggressive, getting to the line 13 times in the third quarter. You can imagine how that sat with Gregg…
