What could be one of the last things San Antonio Spurs fans and coaching staff would want to know what franchise player Tim Duncan has been doing in the offseason? How about knowing he has been taking in and participating in drag racing. You know, sitting in a car built for speed and increasing the chances of some freak accident causing injury.
But that risk won't stop Duncan who was seen in Las Vegas taking in some racing and enjoying his time off during this offseason.
A huge fan of Project Spurs sent us this photo of TD in Las Vegas recently sitting shot-gun in a race car which might make Spurs fans and coaching staff cringe.
OK so maybe he was simply sitting in a car, deck out with a helmet just for a photo-op but check out this video of Duncan participating in drag racing in Texas.
I guess one cannot stop Duncan from enjoying his time off but raise your hand Spurs fans if you do not approve of Duncan taking part in such risky offseason activity.

So far during the offseason, the Spurs seemed to have stocked up on guards but not much as far as help in the frontcourt - much to the chagrin of Spurs fans.
However, once the offseason...
Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs is a dynamic player and one of my favorite youngsters to follow in the league.

See the question and believe the answer:
Question: What kind of season do you see...

Any reporter that’s been in a press conference with San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich is always a little scared that their question is going to get thrown back in their face and they’ll be the laughingstock of the day (even if it’s a legitimate question). So sometimes it’s best to just ask Pop questions through email.
Pop took some time to answer some mail from...
The San Antonio Spurs are bringing in two big men next week whose surnames together make up the name of a former NBA player and coach.
Brian Butch and Warren Carter will work to make a name for themselves in their professional basketball careers as Butch Carter did, and for them, they likely see the Spurs as a place that could take them there.
According to Keith Kreiter...
Gregg Popovich is arguably the best coach in the NBA, along with being a personal favorite of mine, and his coaching ability with the San Antonio Spurs is simply amazing. Although, Tim Duncan is at an advanced aged, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are aging as well, but the Spurs are a playoff fixture. [...]

San Antonio Spurs' Gregg Popovich is known for his passion for wine. He makes it known and even made his own wine.
But is Tony Parker about to take up the hobby and become a wine connoisseur himself? Maybe seeing how he found himself alone surrounded by barrels of chevel blanc. I guess there's worse places TP or anyone else can find themselves at. Check it out.

San Antonio Spurs' Danny Green is asking the people of San Antonio to go orange for a good cause to end hunger.
Green, along with the San Antonio Food Bank is encouraging people in Southwest Texas to "Go Orange" during Hunger Action Month.
One of the knocks on the San Antonio Spurs has been, aside from the old thing, is that they lack athletes. While you could go back and forth on the age thing, the lack of athletes is nearly indisputable. The athletes they had, namely someone like Ian Mahimni, couldn't get off the bench for one reason or another. Last season they didn't have one player who would be...
