    parkerlongoria

    UPDATE 9:13 pm: Tony Parker commented briefly on his divorce before the Spurs game Wednesday night, trying to draw a distinction between his public and private lives. 1: 06 pm: Two days ago her people were denying it up and down, but today the papers were in court — Eva Longoria has filed for divorce…

  3. Tim Duncan slumping because his midrange game has deserted him

    Nov 16, 2010, 2:36 PM EDT

    Duncan_followthrough

    Tim Duncan has not scored in double digits for three straight games. For Duncan, that is career first. It’s shocking. The guy is an automatic double-double machine, one of the best basketball players walking the face of the earth — even if people don’t know his name. But this season he has been off, and…

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

    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…

  5. Serge Ibaka flies, Gary Neal is in a poster

    Just a little more fun from last night, because when they run the Thunder are fun. And Gary Neal, welcome to the NBA.

  6. Jeopardy contestants draw a blank on an all-time NBA great

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/pGGPE-Cc_lc?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    Not everyone watches basketball. I get that. Yet there are certain players — certain names, even — that are so big they transcend the fan population. Tim Duncan is one such player. Duncan is the best of his generation, a perfect marriage of efficient offense and stifling defense. He’s hit every statistical milestone one could…

  7. The evolution of Tony Parker

    Nov 12, 2010, 1:16 PM EDT

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich

    The Tony Parker that kept opposing coaches up at night because of his scoring is still out there. He can still hit the accelerator coming around a high pick, be in the lane in a flash and even though your help defender recognized it in time he is helpless as Parker puts up a pretty…

  8. Spurs rookie James Anderson has foot surgery, out eight weeks

    Nov 11, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    JAnderson_spurs

    Whenever the phrase “pin inserted in foot” and “NBA player” are in the same sentence, it’s not good. Spurs rookie James Anderson underwent foot surgery today to repair a stress fracture in his fifth metatarsal and will be out two months because of it, according to tweets from Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News. Anderson,…

  9. Spurs release Bobby Simmons, sign Chris Quinn

    Nov 5, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

    Chris Quinn

    The San Antonio Spurs announced that they have decided to release forward Bobby Simmons and sign point guard Chris Quinn. The 30-year old Simmons, who shot 35.9% from the field in New Jersey last season, had only appeared in two games for the Spurs. The 27-year old Quinn, who shot 35.7% from the field in…

  10. Portland’s Fabrico Oberto retires due to heart condition

    Nov 4, 2010, 8:35 PM EDT

    Fabricio Oberto

    Two nights ago Fabricio Oberto left Portland’s game against Milwaukee due to dizziness. That led to tests to see what was the cause. It was a heart condition, recurrent palpitations, that Thursday forced him to retire, according to the team. “I made this decision to put my health and my family in front of basketball,”…

  11. Clippers Craig Smith to appeal flagrant II foul, any fines. He shouldn’t.

    Nov 2, 2010, 8:45 PM EDT

    GHill_injured

    Word comes from the twitter account of Lisa Dillman at the Los Angeles Times that the Clippers Craig Smith is going to appeal his flagrant II foul and any fines that come from the league from his tackling of George Hill last night. If you didn’t see the highlight, Rhino lived up to his nickname…

  12. Eric Gordon makes a poster with Tim Duncan in it

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/jqNij99UdWY?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    We’re telling you, these Clippers are a lot of fun to watch. They easily won the highlight battle against the Spurs last night. We also told you that is very different than winning the game, the Clips are not there yet. Especially not against the Spurs who have beat them 17 of the last 18…

  13. Tiago Splitter has blue collar first night in the NBA, expect more of that

    Nov 2, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Splitter_Gordon

    After seemingly years of hype, Tiago Splitter got a very cold reception to the NBA. He was trying to cover Blake Griffin on the right low block when Griffin put a lighting-quick spin move on him, went baseline and threw down a monster dunk that brought the crowd to its feet. There’s talent in Europe,…

  14. Game of the Night: The Clippers are fun. Not good, that’s the Spurs. But fun.

    Nov 2, 2010, 2:59 AM EDT

    Griffin_dunk3

    The Clippers are dynamic. They are athletic. They are fast and fun and give you monster dunks. They are not yet a basketball team, not in the true sense, not one that is going to win consistently in the NBA. The Spurs are what we thought they were — a relentless execution machine. A team.…

  15. Baron Davis’ bad day: Out with knee issue, ripped by coach

    Nov 1, 2010, 10:02 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_davis1-thumb-250x185-5464.jpg for post 411

    If Baron Davis breaks into a chorus of Boomtown Rats — “I don’t like Mondays” — it would be hard to blame him. He is sitting out Monday night’s Clipper game against the San Antonio Spurs due to pain in his problem left knee. As his coach Vinny Del Negro was announcing that to the…

  16. 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…

  17. What to expect from Tiago Splitter’s NBA debut

    Nov 1, 2010, 4:23 PM EDT

    Tiago Splitter

    Tiago Splitter’s NBA career officially begins tonight, as the Brazilian star will likely take to the court for limited minutes against the Clippers. It’s been a long time coming, and for the Spurs, perhaps a long time needed. San Antonio has tried all kinds of stopgap solutions alongside Tim Duncan over the years, and perhaps…

  18. Tony Parker signs multi-year extension with the Spurs

    Oct 30, 2010, 1:11 PM EDT

    Image (1) NBA_Parker.jpg for post 6216

    Tony Parker is going to stay a Spur. Parker has signed a four year, $50 million deal to remain with San Antonio. Parker is in his 10th NBA season but is just 28 years old. The point guard has been part of the core of the Spurs title teams, but there was speculation that he…

  19. Matt Bonner out 10 to 14 days with ankle sprain

    Oct 28, 2010, 2:57 PM EDT

    Image (1) Spurs_logo-thumb-250x132-17942.gif for post 3607

    Matt Bonner had one of those dreaded but inevitable basketball injuries we all fear in the third quarter Wednesday night — went up for a rebound, came down on a teammates foot, rolled his ankle. He’ll be out 10 days to two weeks as the ankle recovers, according to a tweet from Marc Spears of…

  20. It’s official: DeJuan Blair is your starting center in San Antonio

    Oct 22, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    Image (1) dblair-thumb-250x375-17554.jpg for post 3519

    We told you it was coming, and now that day is here: DeJuan Blair is the starting center for the San Antonio Spurs. ACLs are over-rated. Gregg Popovich made it official talking to the Express-News. Blair gets the nod in just his second season, at age 21, on a team with big aspirations this season.…

  21. Fabricio Oberto talking with Portland, Turkish club about deal

    Oct 18, 2010, 8:09 PM EDT

    Fabricio Oberto

    Fabricio Oberto is a man who can get things done. That despite being a little to slow, not great on the boards and not quite good enough a shot. He plays a smart game — which is why he was a starter for the 2007 title-winning Spurs, his interior passing was a great fit with…

  22. This year the Spurs are going to run… no, Popovich means it this time. Really.

    Oct 18, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) NBA_Parker.jpg for post 277

    The Spurs were not the slowest team in the NBA last season — actually they were 19th, tied with the Bucks. They were faster than the Celtics, Cavaliers, Haws and the dead-last Blazers. It just never feels like it. They feel slow, methodical. This year is going to be different. Sure, 29 other coaches said…

  23. Inside Job: Curtis Jerrells traded to Hornets

    Oct 18, 2010, 12:50 AM EDT

    jerrells

    There’s a little bit of subtext to a move that’s going to largely glossed over by the media types. The San Antonio Spurs today traded guard Curtis Jerrells to the New Orleans Hornets for a second round pick. Without a doubt this move came about as a result of New Orleans’ new GM, Dell Demps,…

  24. Manu Ginobili, DeJuan Blair look like starters in San Antonio

    Oct 13, 2010, 6:22 PM EDT

    Image (1) ginobili_game-thumb-250x373-6866.jpg for post 648

    It just feels wrong. It’s not going to change things really; the Spurs will be the Spurs. Maybe even a little better version of the Spurs. But this starting five just feels weird: Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Richard Jefferson, Tim Duncan, DeJuan Blair. Coach Gregg Popovich has not settled on that yet according to the…

  25. Manu Ginobili plays coach, draws up Spurs game-winning shot

    Oct 13, 2010, 11:20 AM EDT

    Image (1) ginobili_game-thumb-250x343-6866.jpg for post 1197

    Manu Ginobili has notched his first win as a coach. Who cares if it is preseason? With the Spurs down two to the Clippers and less than 10 seconds on the clock, Gregg Popovich stepped aside and handed the clipboard to Manu Ginobili, according to the San Antonio Express-News. Nobody wants to play overtime in…
