The Duality of Manu: Ginobili as Private Joker

The Duality of Manu: Ginobili as Private Joker

Who knew Manu Ginobili was channeling Private Joker all along? Perhaps only someone with a military background. Someone like Gregg Popovich. Maybe that’s why Pop didn’t trade Ginobili on the spot Monday night. Or many other nights in Manu’s 11 roller coaster years in South Texas. While Spurs Nation is still trying…

Leaky Lakers: Spurs Punk LA

Leaky Lakers: Spurs Punk LA

David Beckham was in his front row seats. So was Zac Efron, but it was the guy sitting next him in the Staples Center that probably caught Kobe Bryant’s attention. Big time Laker fan Ashton Kutcher was ready to watch LA host SA. Which was more than fitting since Kobe…

Paranormal Sequel: Spurs Back Where They Started

“Standing in the middle of nowhere,  Wondering how to begin. Lost between tomorrow and yesterday, Between now and then…”      - The Kinks “Do It Again” That’s the song that would headline the Spurs soundtrack for the 2012-13 season. Because somehow through the summer blur of baseball and the…

SA Shades of Gray: The Spurs’ Sexy Sell

SA Shades of Gray: The Spurs’ Sexy Sell

Finally, the Spurs step outside their proverbial “Boring Team” box to make a bold move. Not the kind of deal that brings a big name free agent to alter the balance of the Force in the Western Conference. Still, it’s the kind of move that get the Spurs noticed. Even…

Spurs White Outed: When the Thunder Rolls

So, Garth Brooks is from Oklahoma.  Naturally a team christened with the name “Supersonics” would just have to go Chad Ochocinco on its history. Utah found a way to stick with the Jazz team name. That was not good enough for Oklahoma City. Not when a Garth song would provide…

The Serge Surge: Welcome To Game 5

“Looks like the Spurs left NASTY back in San Antonio.” That was the text that buzzed my phone during Game 3 of the Spurs/Thunder series while waiting for Snoop Dogg to hit the stage during his SA stop last week. From my Dad. Longtime basketball coach.  First time text message…

Team Trumps Trio: When 65+ > 88

“Today, I am… the GREATEST!” Remember that quote? That wasn’t Muhammad Ali after he rumbled George Foreman in the jungle. That also wasn’t Terrell Owens when he preened on the Texas Stadium Star. Those immortal immodest words were uttered by Rickey Henderson. Back on May 1, 1991, Rickey broke Lou Brock’s all-time…

Spurs Pop Culture: As Nasty As They Need To Be

“Are we having fun yet?” That question kicked off what will undoubtedly enter the “Coaching Time Out Speech” Hall of Fame. Sean Elliott will forever be remembered for delivering the “Memorial Day Miracle” in the Spurs’ first title run in 1999. Gregg Popovich might have provided the bookend to that…

SA vs. OKC: Red River Shootout Hoops

  First things first: I think the San Antonio Riverwalk is much better than Oklahoma City’s. In fact, OKC’s is actually called the “Bricktown” for good reason. Or just Bricktown. It’s cleaner. Lots of bricks. With a canal you can walk by. Therefore, it’s called it a Riverwalk.          …
