San Antonio Spurs

  1. George Hill to play one exhibition game in ABA

    Aug 29, 2011, 1:45 PM EST

    Geroge Hill

    George Hill is going to suit up and play some professional basketball in Texas in October. No, the Pacers didn’t trade him back to the Spurs. No, they haven’t solved the lockout. Not even close. Hill has agreed to play in an exhibition game with another squad — the Texas Fuel of the ABA. That…

  2. Spurs delay millions in arena upgrades. Not like they’ll need it soon.

    Aug 24, 2011, 1:58 PM EST

    ATT-CENTER

    Among the signs you should just try and get comfortable because this lockout is going to be a long, bumpy ride…. Bexar County — which includes San Antonio — has helped clear the way for the Spurs to save millions by putting off planned upgrades to the AT&T Center (where the Spurs play). The San…

  3. Report: Casspi now eyeing Tony Parker’s team in France

    Aug 23, 2011, 9:33 AM EST

    omri-casspi-sacramento-kings-125-million

    Omri Casspi is not going to Israel if he plays overseas during he lockout. Which is kind of surprising but talks with Maccabi Tel Aviv (where he would team up with Jordan Farmar) fell through over money and now the Cavalier’s forward looking around at other options. Like teaming up with Tony Parker in France,…

  4. Scotty Robertson, first coach of New Orleans Jazz, dies

    Former-Jazz-coach-Scotty-Robertson-dies-PRAAQHK-x-large

    Scotty Robertson, who coached nearly 300 NBA games and was an assistant for many more, has died at the age of 81 at his home in Louisiana. He lost a battle with cancer, reports the Detroit News. Robertson coached the first 15 games the expansion New Orleans Jazz ever played in 1974. They went 1-14…

  5. Tony Parker will play in native France if lockout drags on

    Aug 17, 2011, 11:21 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    While a number of NBA players have signed, or at least flirted, with a deal overseas during the lockout, only one real star has signed up — Deron Williams of the Nets headed to Turkey. But that is going to change as the lockout moves forward. And while most of the big names will likely…

  6. Matt Bonner isn’t Canadian enough, apparently

    Jul 20, 2011, 4:29 PM EST

    Matt Bonner

    Matt Bonner wants to be Canadian. And not in the “put a maple leaf on your bag as you travel through Europe so you don’t have to try and explain American politics” kind of way. He played for the Raptors, lives in Toronto in the off-season, his wife and daughter are Canadian, and he wants…

  7. George Hill is going to miss watching Ginobili play nightly

    Jul 19, 2011, 7:39 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 6

    Here’s what we learned about George Hill today — not a fan of Whataburger. Big fan of Gregg Popovich’s jokes (if you like dry humor you’d like his jokes, too.) But what did Hill tell butthegameison.com he would miss most after the trade? When asked to rate how much he would miss seeing Manu Ginobili…

  8. Manu Ginobili says he plans to retire in two years

    Jul 15, 2011, 12:12 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili

    Things are changing with the Spurs. An era is ending. Tim Duncan is on the downhill side of his career, and now it appears Manu Ginobili is looking at a pretty short window of time in the NBA. That’s what he told an Argentinian news site, as translated by Hoopsworld. “The truth is that I…

  9. Tony Parker paid $5k to fly with a jet pack on vacation

    Jul 8, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Tony-Parker-Flies

    There is no CBA in place right now, so if you do something — like get popped for having marijuana in the car — there is nothing the league or your team can do about it. So go ahead and take some risks, NBA players. Like, say, flying with water-propelled jet pack while on vacation…

  10. Spurs’ Splitter gets insurance, will play for Brazil

    Jul 6, 2011, 1:23 PM EST

    Reggie Williams,  Al Thornton, Tiago Splitter

    Suddenly NBA players are like a lot of Americans — without health insurance. Which is a big problem for the international players who want to help their teams qualify for the 2012 London Olympics through a series of FIBA Tournaments around the globe. Insurance doesn’t just have to cover treatment and rehab of an injury,…

  11. Report sees fans in San Antonio, Boston quick to return after lockout

    Jul 4, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs NBA Championship Parade

    Let’s say the lockout does end up costing part of a season, we have already talked about how a league that has picked up so much momentum with casual fans will be kicking that to the curb and have a lot of rebuilding to do with fan bases. But which teams will bounce back quickest.…

  12. Report: Spurs, Knicks called Cavaliers about Casspi

    Jul 4, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    Omri Casspi

    The only really interesting pre-lockout trade in the NBA was the Cavaliers sending J.J. Hickson to the Sacramento Kings for Omri Casspi and a future pick (likely first rounder but there are a number of protections on it). Generally, it is thought the Kings won that trade (they got the better player). But there is…

  13. About Antonio McDyess retiring… maybe not

    Jul 1, 2011, 10:32 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzles v San Antionio Spurs - Game Two

    When we last saw Spurs veteran big man Antonio McDyess we were talking about how the surprising first-round ouster of the team meant he was walking away from the game with a sour taste in his mouth. But he did say, “This was my last game.” Or not. Turns out the two sides want to…

  14. Tim Duncan not going to opt out, Spurs not offering extension

    Jun 28, 2011, 9:13 AM EST

    tim-duncan-ankle-injury

    Next season, whenever it starts, is going to see Tim Duncan in the middle for the San Antonio Spurs. As it should, it will look and feel wrong when the day comes he doesn’t fill that role. Duncan could opt out of his deal and force the Spurs to renegotiate with him, but he’s not…

  15. Three biggest surprises of the NBA Draft

    Jun 24, 2011, 10:02 PM EST

    Tristan Thompson

    There are always a few surprises, like that guy you drafted you thought was 21 turns out to be 26. Funny, but really that mistake by the Timberwolves was moot because Tanguy Ngombo was never going to play in the NBA. But there were some surprises when the picks still mattered. Here are the three…

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

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:14 AM EST

    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…

  17. Tony Parker wants to stay in San Antonio

    Jun 22, 2011, 7:24 PM EST

    Parker Bibby

    Spurs guard Tony Parker‘s name has been getting thrown around in trade rumors for the last few days, but the 2007 Finals MVP is hoping that he will still be a Spur when the dust settles after draft day. Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears has the report: Tony Parker says he loves Spurs and wants to…

  18. Are the Spurs targeting Klay Thompson?

    Jun 22, 2011, 7:04 PM EST

    Klay Thompson

    According to multiple sources, including ESPN’s Ric Bucher and the Los Angeles Times’ Mark Heisler, the player the San Antonio Spurs are attempting to trade into the lottery for is Klay Thompson. Reportedly, the Spurs are extremely interested in trading into the lottery, and may be willing to give up Tony Parker and/or Richard Jefferson…

  19. Spurs deny shopping Tony Parker. Of course they do.

    Jun 22, 2011, 4:44 PM EST

    French NBA player Tony Parker walks on t

    And now we bring you the story that we all knew was coming today like we knew the sun would rise in the East and that Wednesday would be national chocolate éclair day. (What, you didn’t know about that?) The San Antonio Spurs have denied they are shopping Tony Parker around. This is required to…

  20. Manu Ginobili working out but not back on court yet

    Jun 20, 2011, 1:55 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzles v San Antionio Spurs - Game Two

    At the end of July, Manu Ginobili will join his fellow Argentinians on the national team, which will host and compete in the FIBA Americas tournament (where London Olympic berths will be on the line). But for now, he is staying off the court on doctor’s orders, he told Mike Monroe of the Express-News. Ginobili…

  21. Popovich not too worried about what Tony Parker thinks

    Jun 10, 2011, 8:17 AM EST

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich

    Tony Parker told some French reporters that he didn’t think the Spurs were title contenders anymore. He later tried to take it all back, which was problematic because there was video of the interview. Whatever, Gregg Popovich is going to have none of it. He spoke with WOAI-TV sports director Don Harris and the Spurs…

  22. Video: The Basketball Jones recaps the 2011 playoffs

    May 31, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Two

    One good reason to move to Canada, say from a city like Atlanta, is to be able to watch J.E. Skeets and Tas Melas of The Basketball Jones on The Score. However, as a native Californian with thin blood, I’m not moving north. Not even for them. So let’s bring them to us. What follows…

  23. Remembering NBA Players who served in the military

    May 30, 2011, 12:07 PM EST

    David Robinson Spurs

    On Memorial Day, a day set aside for remembering the sacrifices people have made for our freedom and the chance to do things like watch NBA games, it seemed fitting to look back at NBA players who served in the military. Because the NBA was formed after World War II, the NBA does not have…

  24. Insurance issues could keep NBA stars off national teams

    May 27, 2011, 11:40 AM EST

    Tiago Splitter

    This summer in Europe, South America, Africa and all over the globe will be major international basketball tournaments — ones where berths in the 2012 London Olympics will be on the line. And those nations may be without their NBA players. All because of the upcoming NBA lockout, and what that could do to player…

  25. Report: Blazers considering Danny Ferry as new GM

    May 25, 2011, 1:29 PM EST

    danny-ferry-apjpg-93fe194051c36202_large

    Don’t expect the Portland Trail Blazers to move fast — they said they were going to take their time finding a new GM to replace Rich Cho — but apparently they have one name on their list already. Danny Ferry, the former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager who before and after that has worked with the…
