In order to adequately preview the San Antonio Spurs this season I could probably just post a link to last year's preview. No big changes here. If you're a Spurs fan you certainly weren't brimming with excitement over the off-season. No subtractions. One minor addition. And that's it. You're also probably not to upset about that either. The core is still in tact and so is the bench. The young guys will be a year wiser, the old guys will be a year older. The main concern for this team has to be health, and that concern starts with Manu Ginobili.
Reports are stating that Ginobili will not be ready for Opening Night in New Orleans Wednesday night. Are his back spasms and foot problems something the Spurs should be permanently wary of, or is this just standard practice for coach Gregg Popovich, benching one of his better players when they are banged up and the Spurs have what should be an easy opponent in the very young Hornets? After all, it is just a regular sea...

This past weekend, the San Antonio Spurs got into the Halloween spirit and put on some nice costumes such as Manu Ginobili and Stephen Jackson dressing up as Zorro and The Joker respectively. Both were solid costumes, however, nothing, and I mean nothing, can compare to Danny Green's costume.
Check out Green as Ghostbuster's villain, "The Stay Puft Marshmallow...
Stop the NBA costume contest...Spurs guard Danny Green got this....(Courtesy of Danny Green Twitter)
The lack of size in the San Antonio Spurs' front court isn't a secret. Boris Diaw and DeJuan Blair are both undersized. Matt Bonner is a surprisingly good post defender (in addition to his obvious shooting prowess). Then there's Tiago Splitter. Tiago's really good, you guys. He can score in the low post, he's a great roll man, he can pass. He can rebound...
San Antonio Spurs assistant coach, Brett Brown, has stepped down as head coach for Australia's men's basketball head coach according to the Brisbane Times.
Brown, citing he can no longer commit to another four years as head coach, guided the Boomers to the 2012 London games where the team would eventually lose to Team USA in the tournament. It was a successful run in...
Hands down, the San Antonio Spurs have the best group Halloween costumes to date, but rapper Ludacris’ costume isn’t too shabby: He has similar facial features as the #1 2012 Draft pick and of course, he uses the unibrow in the correct fashion. H/T BallDontLie The post Ludacris Dresses Up As Anthony Davis For Halloween appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili is sitting out the season opener against New Orleans because of back spasms.
Ginobili missed half of the team's eight preseason games because of back problems, a troubling sign for the aging Spurs. Coach Gregg Popovich says it's vital that they keep the 30-somethings - Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Ginobili - healthy this season.
After finishing the last two seasons with the number one seed in the Western Conference, the San Antonio Spurs are back for yet another season in which they are still considered a title contender.
The Spurs are bringing back a team that won 50 games in a lockout season, had three double-digit winning streaks, won 20 games in a row, and were two games away from playing in the...
Now that the NBA season is finally upon us, former San Antonio Spurs player Bruce Bowen and his bow ties are back. Bowen, an NBA analyst with ESPN, recently gave his top-five teams in the Western Conference and has San Antonio in his list.
Bowen points to the "Big 3" as the force behind the Spurs' upcoming season.
The San Antonio Spurs kick off their 2012-13 regular season tonight versus the New Orleans Hornets in New Orleans. The team remained pretty much in tact only adding guard Nando De Colo in the offseason.
Yet despite the lack of many offseason moves, the team got in a full training camp (which will help players added late last season) and are raring to go according to Boris Diaw...
Brett Brown is also the assistant coach of the San Antonio Spurs.
NEW ORLEANS – If Tim Duncan is the gold standard by which all other NBA power forwards are measured, the San Antonio Spurs' future Hall of Famer gushed over what he saw across the court Wednesday night in New Orleans Hornets' rookie Anthony Davis, the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft. Duncan scored 24 points, including nine of San Antonio's final 12 points, and grabbed...
Wednesday night in New Orleans wasn’t exactly scripted as planned. The San Antonio Spurs, who finished with the best record in the Western Conference last season and had their entire team back, struggled against the number one overall pick Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Hornets Wednesday, however by the end of the night, the ending result was similar to the original script...
With the San Antonio Spurs tipping off the 2012-13 season in just a few hours in New Orleans, I thought I’d poll our staff, fellow bloggers and Spurs media members to get their predictions on how this season will end up.
The Spurs may be another year older, but this is the same team that made it to the Western Conference Finals last season. With Stephen Jackson...
The San Antonio Spurs travel to New Orleans tonight to kick off their season against the Hornets. The San Antonio roster looks almost identical to the team that won 50 games last year. For the Hornets, it’s another story.
Nine players will be making their debut for New Orleans tonight, including top overall draft pick Anthony Davis. Davis and fellow rookie Austin Rivers are...
