San Antonio Spurs
Los Angeles Lakers
With the San Antonio Spurs boasting two players from Latin America - Argentina's Manu Ginobili and Brazil's Tiago Splitter - it shouldn't be too much of a surprise to find out their jerseys will be extremely popular. Especially Manu's.
However, according to a global jersey sales report from Adidas, last season Tim Duncan's jersey was a top-selling jersey in Latin America.
The Miami Heat’s LeBron James, the Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose and the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant had the top-three selling NBA jerseys around the world last season according to Adidas’ sales, the league announced as it prepares for its annual Global Games this preseason.
In Latin America: Rose, Bryant, James, Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Garnett and San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan.
This is a bit of a shocker considering Ginobili is practically seen as the best-ever basketball player to come out of Bahia Blanca and Splitter being one of the few Brazilian's in the NBA.
Just goes to show you, even in Latin America, Duncan's game and professionalism is respected.
How about you Spurs fans? What is your favorite Spurs jersey to wear?

At 34-years old, San Antonio Spurs' training camp invitee Corey Maggette understands his time in the NBA is limited but still feels he can still have an impact on an NBA squad.
In an interview with Sirius XM Sports, Maggette made it clear he knows he has to adjust his role and be ready mentality. He admits that he is a scorer but understands he must adjust his game if he...
San Antonio Spurs training camp invitee Dan Nwaelele is the underdog to make the final roster. However, when it comes to what defines being a Spurs, he has all that and more.
Dan, who had to serve a 5-year Army commitment, is getting a shot at the NBA with the Spurs and aside from being a great shooter, he is the right attitude and focus to hopefully raise some eyebrows in camp...
Editor's Note: When it comes to everything and anything sneakers, there's only one guy we here at Project Spurs turn to... Red's Army's Jamey Burke aka KWAPT. KWAPT sent us this review of Tony Parker's signature PEAK sneakers which fans can now buy. Give it a read and make sure to follow KWAPT on Twitter. Ask him what his Twitter name really means. Spurs fans...
With the National Basketball Association pre-season coming closer and closer here is another look at a former UNC Basketball player that has made it at the next level. Danny Green, who is the San Antonio’s starting shooting guard, scoring over 10 points per game last season, while adding 3.1 rebounds and almost 2 assists per match ups, has been working hard since the day he was...
When it comes to being the world's fastest man Usain Bolt has the routine down. The man wins just about every time he steps on the track and often times can be seen letting up before he crosses the finish line--he is that far ahead!
Being the beast that he is requires a healthy amount of confidence, and he's earned it. The problem with that confidence is when it gets him...
SAN ANTONIO - For a team as well-traveled as the San Antonio Spurs, you wouldn’t think a place like Colorado Springs would seem so foreign, especially considering they are a team boasting talent from France, Argentina, Brazil, Australia, Italy and Canada
But for many that went on the trek to the Air Force Academy after media day yesterday for training camp, which begins today...
The San Antonio Spurs may be out in Colorado for training camp but thanks to the power of social media, Spurs fans in San Antonio can soak in the sights and sounds of the team putting in work.
Check out a few videos of the Spurs open practice tonight.
"Big Shot Bob", otherwise known as Robert Horry, had a storied and championship laden NBA career. He managed to win seven championships with three different NBA teams, a feat that only John Salley duplicated. Horry won two championships with the Houston Rockets, three with the Los Angeles Lakers and two more with the San Antonio Spurs.
Robert earned his nickname...
At San Antonio Spurs' Media Day, 1250 ESPN SA's "The Hardline" caught up with Matt Bonner.
Bonner is known for his deadly three-point shooting, but he also has a very funny side to him as well as you will see in the video below.
From shamelessly promoting Bolthouse Farms' Baby Carrot "Shakedowns" to admitting he is using the team's loss...
With the reputation the government has for its quality of work leaving something to be desired, it comes as big surprise to hear that the San Antonio Spurs players are awe struck by the facilities at the Air Force Academy during their four day training camp.
According to Tony Parker the best way to describe the training camp digs is big.
How you feel about Marco Belinelli will likely depend on how you feel about Manu Ginobili.
Make no mistake — Belinelli is no Ginobili. Rather he’s a watered-down version of the aging yet still-potent dynamo the Spurs had no doubts about re-signing even after a wildly inconsistent Finals. Considering Ginobili at 36 is a watered-down version of his own best self that isn’t...
According to reports, the NBA Finals will return to the original format (2-2-1-1-1) and abandon the current format (2-3-2) pending NBA owner approval.
This decision could have come one year too late for the San Antonio Spurs and just opens up a gaping wound that just now is beginning to heal.
With the Spurs and Heat taking turns winning games, the new format would have given...
With NBA training camps already in full swing, and the season only a few weeks away, we pulled an NBA classic montage out of the archives. It’s also a tribute to Tracy McGrady who retired over the past summer.
The date was March 10, 2004. Wizards v. Magic. Gilbert Arenas v. Tracy McGrady. 2 guys who loved to shoot. On this night, it all went through the nets.
Australia can’t be a basketball country can it?
Jamaicans couldn’t be bobsledders either until Irving Blitzer realized the potential they had and led them to the Calgary Olympics in the classic Disney movie “Cool Runnings”.
So what do new 76ers coach Brett Brown and Irving Blitzer have in common?
The answer: They both helped start a great movement.
As Brown and the 76ers...
