Former Chicago Bulls guard and current ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Williams says his Bulls teammates during the 2002-2003 NBA season smoked marijuana before games.
The Spurs are reportedly trying to move center, Dejuan Blair, before the February 21st trade deadline. The 3-year veteran, who’s averaging 5.2 points and 3.9 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game this season, has drawn interest from several teams around the league according to Chris Broussard.

Aron Baynes' arrival to the San Antonio Spurs caught many by surprise when the rumors ran rampant along in the internet. There was a general feeling that Baynes may need time to adjust to what the Spurs want from him and also time to adjust to San Antonio's schemes. Luckily for Baynes, Spurs assistant Brett Brown has coached the Australian national team and has made their...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili have been ruled out for the San Antonio Spurs' game at Brooklyn, still sidelined by injuries.
Duncan missed his third straight game on Sunday due to a sore left knee. Ginobili was out for the fourth consecutive game with tightness in his left hamstring.

Former San Antonio Spurs guard Avery Johnson made a huge impact on the Spurs' franchise when he wore the Silver and Black. Without him, perhaps there wouldn't be an NBA title in 1999 for the franchise.

The Bulls have always been looking for offense.
With Derrick Rose firmly supplanted as the catalyst for everything, the Bulls have a solid formula to defend but a less than solid formula for the Playoffs. And, with Chicago surprisingly in the top-half of the Eastern Conference playoff picture and Rose now traveling with the team and getting close to a return to the floor, the team...
Contradicting recent reports and despite partaking in full contact practices while recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee, shelved Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose said he’s “far away” from returning and being “110 percent.” Rose, a three-time NBA … Continue reading →
Kawhi Leonard drained a corner 3 to give the Spurs a 96-95 victory in Cleveland Wednesday night:
Michael Jordan arrived and became the first athlete to be a “brand.” After the first pair of Nike “Air Jordan” basketball shoes rolled out, the former Chicago Bulls guard elevated his profile from superstar to transcendent, cross-over commercial icon. Now, almost 30 years since the first sneakers debuted and nearly a decade since Jordan retired as a pro athlete, his brand...
ESPN's Stephen A. Smith is no stranger to hate from fans of the San Antonio Spurs. When discussing about the NBA MVP, Skip Bayless picked Tony Parker as his pick for league MVP while Smith picked Lebron James. To some, it might be a surprise that Smith did give Parker some props on his play, but it may be seen as a "back handed" compliment. He goes on saying that the...
Whether or not Tim Duncan or Manu Ginobili are able to return for Monday night's matchup with the Chicago Bulls, the San Antonio Spurs seem to be in good hands with Tony Parker running the show.
The red-hot point guard looks to help San Antonio earn a 13th victory in 14 games when it faces a Chicago team returning home after an up-and-down road trip.
Duncan has missed eight...
