PLAYERS: Patty Mills
TEAMS: San Antonio Spurs
In today’s NBA with such a prevalent “me” first attitude it is refreshing when you get a player who works hard but still embraces the team first attitude and his role.  In an Sports Illustrated article written in 1994, David Robinson stated that players get paid handsomely to sit on the bench but when you look at them, they look like someone kicked their dog.  He went on to say that he would be grabbing a towel and cheering his tail off for the players that were on the court. Current Spur, Patty Mills must have been listening.  Often during San Antonio Spurs games you can see him leading the cheer and waving his towel.  Amazing in the previous Project Spurs article, Mills shows the various ways to wave a towel. Today we have “The Coyote” along with Mills and his new friend "Pat Stack" giving some finer points on waving the newly introduced Spurs Rally towels with the proceeds supporting the Silver and Black Give Back Youth Programs and Kinetic Kids.                                       (photo via Spurs.com)

Spurs still a well-oiled machine without Parker

For all those riding along on the Tony Parker MVP Bandwagon, the road to the Maurice Podoloff Trophy has hit a few potholes. And it's not because Parker is out for a month with a bum ankle. No, because the Spurs never seem to hit any potholes. San Antonio just keeps winning, moving to 2-0 without Parker after rolling over the Chicago Bulls in the second half in Wednesday...

Patty Mills Teaches Towel Waving

Well, he wasn't going to teach actual basketball skills.

Tony Parker Likely To Return Earlier Than Scheduled

Inside the mind of Nando De Colo

Nando De Colo's rookie season has been somewhat quiet. Even on a low-key team as the San Antonio Spurs, you probably haven't heard much about De Colo's interests or tapped into his personality. In a recent interview with BasketUSA.com, De Colo discusses various random subjects and you also can get the feel for how his teammates are off the court in San Antonio. ...

Video: Tony Parker - From Fast Break to Fashion Runway

Players do not always eat, sleep and drink basketball.  They have hobbies/interests that keep their passion occupied while they are away from the court. If you ever seen San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker on the sidelines recently, you will notice that he always looks sharp and well dressed.   Now most people would have you believe that it is the work a hired stylist that...

Video: Spurs' Jackson talks early basketball life, music and more

In an interview with BeatsTV, Stephen Jackson discusses various subjects that San Antonio Spurs fans may not know about him.

Spurs are drawing closer to 50 wins... again

The San Antonio Spurs are about to reach a milestone for the team that they thought wouldn't happen again after the team got older and started dropping from the defensive ratings these past few years. The Spurs are about to enter their 14th season of reaching 50 wins this season, only two shy of this accomplishment. This stretch began during the 1999-2000 season when...

Bonner talks 3-point contest, life on the Spurs

I’ll admit it. I was wrong about San Antonio Spurs' Matt Bonner in the three-point contest this year. He wasn’t too slow, his form didn’t hinder his performance and if it wasn’t for the special “clutch gene” flowing in Kyrie Irving’s blood, Bonner would have probably taken home the trophy. Recently, Bonner joined Paul Shirley and Justin Halpern on their podcast...

Boris Diaw Has Snot Rocket Problems

That’s the kind of **** that was coming from my nose two weeks ago while battling a sinus infection. Seriously, I used 2.5 rolls of toilet paper over three days during that war. And the snot was canary yellow. As for Boris Diaw’s snot issues, it just seems that the Spurs big guy was fine last night after clearing this hog. He finished with five points on 2-3 shooting in the Spurs...

State of the Spurs: Fine without Parker?

It is a cruel-but-ironic twist that nobody outside of LeBron James has done more damage to Tony Parker's long-shot MVP candidacy than Parker's own teammates. The Spurs point guard out hurt. An ankle injury is expected to keep him away four weeks. "The Spurs hardly even realize he's gone" is saying too much, but they did crush the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday...

5 things to watch: Spurs vs. Blazers

Spurs Tony Parker Says he Almost got Drafted by the Celtics (Video)

During last month’s All-Star Weekend, Bill Simmons, conducted another excellent interview with San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker who is currently injured with a sprained ankle. They discussed a variety of topics including the 2001 NBA Draft when Parker said he was told that the Boston Celtics were going to draft him before they opted instead to go with Joseph Forte who...

Video: Parker talks OKC, the 'boring' label, Celtics and more

San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker joined Bill Simmons in an exclusive interview of the "B.S. Report". Parker talks about being underrated in the league, which he shrugs off saying it's because he plays for the San Antonio Spurs. Parker also discusses the Western Conference Finals loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder and James Harden being traded. Needless to say he...

(Photo) Mills 'chills' in new Spurs medical device

Tony Parker turned 30 this season, just two days prior to the San Antonio Spurs' 86-84 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Parker drained the game-winning bucket -- a wide-open mid-range shot, created  by both pristine offensive execution and Russell Westbrook's costly defensive mishap. It was a sign of things to come. Since then, the Frenchman has produced his finest...

Matchup of the Game: Spurs vs. Bulls

The matchup for the game tonight between the Chicago Bulls and the hosting San Antonio Spurs will be between Bulls' forward Carlos Boozer and Spurs' forward Tim Duncan.
