  1. Friday And-1 links: Did Wade mock Dwight Howard’s loyalty?

    Mar 16, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Was Dwyane Wade mocking Dwight Howard’s loyalty to the Magic? Kind of looks that way to me. Rudy Gay has cleared the league concussion protocols…

  2. NBA trade deadline report cards: Portland gets an “A”

    Mar 15, 2012, 8:04 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, Raymond Felton

    Dwight Howard didn’t get traded and neither did any of Boston’s big three. But there were plenty of moves at the deadline. Here are our grades for each team. Atlanta Hawks: They wanted to move one player to get themselves under the luxury tax line (they are $440,000 over it). They couldn’t do it. So…

  3. PBT’s constantly updated trade deadline tracker

    Mar 15, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley, Mike Dunleavy, Carlos Delfino

  4. Spurs trade Richard Jefferson to Warriors for Stephen Jackson

    Mar 15, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    stephen-jackson-spurs

    The Spurs have acquired Stephen Jackson from the Warriors in exchange for Richard Jefferson, according to a report from Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. Golden State will also receive a conditional first round draft pick as part of the deal, according to Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group. Jackson wasn’t with the Warriors…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dirk Nowitzki is still good

    Feb 21, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Dallas Mavericks

    What you missed while trying to find something to watch now that Downton Abbey is over….. Nets 100, Knicks 92: Deron Williams would like you to know he is the best point guard in the greater New York area, and will be next year when the Nets move to Brooklyn (unless he leaves to play…

  6. Spurs decline third-year option on James Anderson

    Jan 28, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, James Anderson

    Although the final public analysis of any NBA roster move is usually distilled to a few lines of explanation, every single decision that an NBA front office makes is a complicated one. Salary, fit, production, potential, age, redundancy, personality, character, experience, flexibility — all of these factors — and more — come into play, and…

  7. Spurs to retire Bruce Bowen’s No. 12 jersey

    Jan 23, 2012, 5:52 PM EDT

    Bruce Bowen

    Bruce Bowen was the guy asked to cover Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Richard Jefferson — whoever was the best perimeter player on the other team. Night after night, playoffs after playoffs. His elite defense, as well as his reliable corner three, were key parts of three San Antonio Spurs titles, so the team is going…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nate Robinson beats the Heat

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while being addicted to cracking your knuckles… Wizards 93, Raptors 78: The Wizards win! Theeee Wizards win! Warriors 111, Heat 106: This was another Miami route, they were up 17 late in the third quarter, but then Nate Robinson happened. And then Dorell Wright happened. And suddenly Mark Jackson and the rebuilding…

  9. Friday morning one liners (so long Brandon Roy)

    Dec 16, 2011, 11:09 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. If you read one thing today, make it the BlazersEdge look back at the career of Brandon Roy. This is spectacular stuff from Ben Golliver. In case you missed it, PBT previewed all 30 NBA…

    NBA basketball spaulding

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

  11. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  12. Caron Butler’s final four: Bulls, Spurs, Nets, Clippers

    Dec 7, 2011, 3:45 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    For a guy on the wrong side of 30 coming off major knee surgery that caused him to miss most of a season, Caron Butler has some pretty sweet options ahead of him for this season. Butler is down to a final four, tweets Chris Broussard of ESPN. Caron Butler’s choices: SA or CHI for…

  13. Report: Spurs to use amnesty clause on Richard Jefferson

    Dec 7, 2011, 2:06 PM EDT

    Richard Jefferson

    Richard Jefferson apparently is out in San Antonio… which with the Spurs always makes you think something else is coming. Like maybe Caron Butler. Jefferson will be one of the first players waived under the new amnesty provision, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. The Spurs have decided to use the amnesty clause on contract of…

  14. NBA Free Agency: The final chance for Vince Carter’s redemption

    Dec 4, 2011, 10:56 PM EDT

    vince-carter-suns

    At the 2000 NBA All-Star Game, Vince Carter put in one of the most prolific, maybe the single best performances in NBA history. In the 2000 summer Olympics, Vince Carter dunked over Frederic Weis in arguably the most famous posterization of all time. And in the early to mid-2000’s, Carter put together one of the…

  15. Spurs are aggressively shopping for a small forward, Jefferson on the way out?

    Dec 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Richard Jefferson

    The Spurs will likely look a bit different this year than they did last season. Tim Duncan‘s a year older. Manu Ginobili is a year older. DeJuan Blair‘s knees are a year older. They traded George Hill for Kawhi Leonard. Tiago Splitter will get more minutes. And from the looks of it, they’ll have another…

  16. What the Spurs should do when the lockout ends…

    Sep 12, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs NBA Championship Parade

    This is the next installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Today it’s the San Antonio Spurs. You can also read up on the Lakers, Timberwolves and Mavericks as we start to work our way through all 30 NBA teams. Last Season: Best team in the NBA until the last night of the season.…

  17. Report: Tony Parker to the Trail Blazers was discussed

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:14 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    While the Spurs deny it, comments from other teams make it look like Tony Parker is being shopped around like he is on QVC. How serious those talks are is the question. In the case of a Hoopsworld report, things got very close with the Portland Trail Blazers. The San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail…

  18. Or maybe Manu Ginobili is a go for Game 2, so good for the Spurs

    Apr 19, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    UPDATE 3:48 pm: Apparently somebody brought some water from Lourdes to San Antonio, because there has been a miraculous healing. Reports as of this morning said Ginobili was still doubtful, but now the very good beat writer Jeff McDonald of the Express-News says on twitter that Ginobili is 99.9 percent likely to play. They need him,…

  19. Gregg Popovich no fan of that new-fangled three point line

    Apr 11, 2011, 4:11 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    We all knew Gregg Popovich was old school. We just didn’t know how old school Like 1970s old school. Like Steve Martin doing King Tut on Saturday Night Live old school. Like The Who when they still had Keith Moon as their drummer old school. (Actually, that last one is not a bad school to…

  20. The Spurs and the new balance of attack

    Jan 22, 2011, 3:37 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    San Antonio has lost six times out of 43 games.  That to me, puts it in the best perspective. They’ve had success 86% of the time. They’ve failed less than 15% of the time. That’s insane. This from a team with a trio of aging stars and late first round and early second round picks…

  21. For the right price, Jefferson could have been a Net

    Jan 7, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Richard Jefferson

    Richard Jefferson didn’t have to play for the Spurs this season. He didn’t have to accept an offer that would pay him $8.4 million this year to play for the team with the league’s best record. He didn’t have to work personally with one of the best coaches in the NBA over the summer, or…

  22. San Antonio is back — and interesting this time

    Nov 24, 2010, 12:52 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Tim Duncan

    The San Antonio Spurs, even at their peak, felt like your father’s favorite team — quiet and efficient. Good defense, methodical pace, the backboard is your friend. Fundamental. Controlled. That’s not bad, I love my father — I wish I were more like him in a lot of ways — but that doesn’t mean I…

  23. Game of the night: The Spurs would like your attention, please

    Nov 18, 2010, 12:51 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili

    After 24 minutes of decent offensive execution with poor finishing, the Spurs’ third quarter was an explosion of contrasts. San Antonio’s inexplicable misses were made right again, and so were some of their lower quality looks, for that matter. The Spurs just went to that happy place, where every three-pointer is accompanied by candy raining…

  24. Don’t look now, but the Spurs are good

    Nov 15, 2010, 6:36 PM EDT

    Image (1) gpopovich-thumb-250x166-20589.jpg for post 4230

    With all the talk about the Celtics, the Lakers, the Hornets, and the Heat going on right now, it’s pretty easy not to notice that the 8-1 San Antonio Spurs have the league’s second-best record. The Spurs haven’t had a very tough schedule, of course, and didn’t have a signature win on their record until…

  25. Checking in with the new Richard Jefferson

    Nov 1, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Richard Jefferson

    Though Tiago Splitter was San Antonio’s big off-season addition, it’s an improved Richard Jefferson that could really give the ’10-’11 Spurs some teeth. San Antonio was a fine team last season, but with Splitter bolstering the Spurs’ depth and Jefferson revamping his approach, Duncan and company could conceivably improve enough to sniff the West’s top…
