Found March 26, 2012 on Project Spurs:

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban can certainly rile up San Antonio Spurs fans.

Throughout the Spurs-Mavs rivalry, Cuban has usually been at the forefront at the rivalry (second to Jason Terry) and it would be an understatement to say Spurs fans do not care for him or his verbal-shots about the Spurs or the city of San Antonio.

It wasn't long ago Cuban remarked about San Antonio's famed Riverwalk by saying it was an "ugly, muddy-watered thing." Later, he even suggested he would start up a website called "I Fell In The Riverwalk" where people can post their photos of falling into it. 

Well it seems Cuban is at it again about the Riverwalk except this time, he was steering clear of the tourist attraction.

While in San Antonio for the recent Spurs-Mavs game, Cuban thought about heading for a stroll along the Riverwalk but decided not to out of fear someone might shove him into it (via Dwain Price of the Dallas Star-Telegram).


Seeing how Cuban is a person Spurs fans love to hate, chances are high Spurs fans might clamour at the chance of some payback. However, Spurs fans are much better than that and would welcome Cuban on the same river he has bashed in the past.

So feel free to walk the Riverwalk next time you are in San Antonio Cuban. No really. I am sure no Spurs fans will be ready with cameras in hand at a chance to snap a photo of you in the Riverwalk.

Such a shame the Spurs and Mavs are done meeting in the regular season. However, there is the possibility of the two Texas team meeting in the playoff. You thinking what I'm thinking Spurs fans?


Box score listing for Tim Duncan: 'DNP - Old'

  That’s messed up. Doesn’t a four-time NBA champions and three-time Finals MVP get any respect around here? As you can see from the box score above that Hardwood Paroxysm shared with us, Tim Duncan did not dress for the Spurs game against the Sixers on Sunday. With an aging roster that is looking to make another Finals run, Gregg Popovich has to be careful about keeping...

Lamar Odom calls boos ‘a little confusing and a little hurtful’

This season has been a disaster for Lamar Odom beginning with his cancelled trade to Houston and his eventual trade to the Mavericks. He hasn’t found a role in Dallas, he’s still upset with the Lakers, and he supposedly has had marital trouble. He has missed games to get his head right and he was benched last Friday. He’s even been booed, and that’s been tough for him. “I’ve...

Aging Mavericks still know how to win

HOUSTON -- The first time I ever saw Shawn Marion, he was sitting in the stands at a place called The Sports Arena in Hutchinson, Kan., and he was signing autographs. He was there to play in the NJCAA Tournament, and I was there to watch. This was 1998, and I was a sophomore in high school, which is to say it was a very long time ago. That isn't relevant, except that 1998...

Tim Duncan didn’t play tonight because he is old

I am not joking. That is exactly what the San Antonio Spurs box score said tonight when it listed Tim Duncan as a Did Not Dress Timmy needed a night off, as this was the third game in a set of back-to-back-to-back. There are a lot of miles on Duncan, as the Spurs have made the playoffs in each of his 14 seasons and will need him even more this year. That 35-year-old body needs...

Jackson says Cardinal's hit on Duncan was dirty

It didn't take long for new Spur Stephen Jackson to show his fiery side and add to the San Antonio Spurs-Dallas Mavericks rivalry.

After the game, Jackson didn't think the hit was an accident and let Cardinal know exactly how he felt about the...
