United States, meet Israeli rapper X Beautiful. We can’t say we know much about him given that X Beautiful doesn’t seem to have the traditional kind of internet presence musical artists do. However, what we do know is that he is clearly a huge fan of San Antonio Spurs head coach Greg Popovich — and sports a Spurs jersey in his video for the appropriately titled song “Popovich.” And if you’re wondering, yes, Popovich himself is apparently aware of the video’s existence, according to Deadspin. But either way, if you ever wanted to know what a rap about Greg Popovich would sound and look like, enjoy the video below.

The side of Matt Bonner you don't know

San Antonio Spurs fans know one side of Matt Bonner -- the guy at the 3-point line ready to launch a shot. Outside of the court, the "Red Rocket" is a far different personality and if you've seen his "Coach B" videos, that personality is a little on the goofier side of life. Nadia Bonner, Matt's wife of four years, gave an interview with UnionLeader...

Leonard's return fuels defense for Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs have gone away from the defensive, shutdown philosophy that made them so successful in the past. It’s not a huge problem because they’ve improved the offense as well and can still win by outscoring their opponents, but on the year, the Spurs are giving up 97 points per game. One reason the Spurs could be giving up so many points is the fact that Kawhi...

Video: Spurs' Duncan moves up NBA all-time blocks list

The San Antonio Spurs couldn't keep the Houston Rockets from giving them a tough game, even while scoring 41 points in the first quarter. Tim Duncan's (quiet) mission wasn't as difficult. Tim Duncan made history in the first quarter by blocking Omer Asik and moving up the ladder in the NBA all-time blocks list by passing Tree Rollins. Duncan is now eighth all-time...

Spurs trusting Green to shoot, in good games and bad

The San Antonio Spurs went “bombs away” on the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, hitting 20 3-pointers against their I-35 rival. They came close to the NBA record of 23, but even if they didn’t make history, it was a very impressive showing. Leading the charge was guard Danny Green, who went 7-8 from outside, leading all scorers in the game with 25 points. It was great to...

Video: Spurs' Popovich weighs in on Nets firing Avery Johnson

By now you have heard about the Nets firing former Spur Avery Johnson as head coach. It came as a bit of a shock considering Johnson guided Brooklyn to an 11-4 start, but the team did go 3-10 since -- including two losses to those cross-borough rivals from Manhattan and an embarrassing 93-76 loss at home to Boston on Christmas Day. Clearly, the Nets didn't want to exercise...

Video: Jackson's sweet pass to Duncan for the slam

During the San Antonio Spurs contest with the Houston Rockets last night, Stephen Jackson found Tim Duncan in the paint for an easy dunk.

Check it out.

First Quarter: Stat Leader: Danny Green with 14 points, and 2 rebounds. Recap: The Spurs hot shooting from the three-point line continued as the team rained down threes in the quarter...

Parker had fun offensively vs. Rockets; knows defense is still key

If you love an up tempo high scoring game, you'd love the highlights to the third game of four meetings between the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets. If you believe in defense first, then this wasn't the game for you.  The Spurs were once seen as a defensive juggernaut that wanted the final score to be in the low 80s if possible, but this year it's the opposite...

Gary Neal has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dallas Mavericks: Gary Neal did not travel to Dallas with the team and will not play tomorrow vs. the Mavericks (@spurs on Twitter)   Neal was also out against the Houston Rockets also.

Spurs-Mavericks Preview

As good as the San Antonio Spurs have been offensively, that success has not carried to the road recently. The Spurs are seeking their third five-game winning streak of the season but also looking to avoid a fifth straight road loss when they try to beat the slumping Dallas Mavericks for the second consecutive Sunday night. After a strong defensive effort led to a 100-80 win over...

Matchup of the Game: Spurs vs. Rockets

The matchup of the game for Friday night's game between the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets is Tony Parker vs Jeremy Lin. With James Harden out last game between the two clubs, Lin had a ridiculous game against the Spurs that saw him score 38 points and dish out 7 assists. The Spurs got the win though behind Parker's triple double of 27 points, 12 assists, and 12...
