Found October 31, 2012 on Project Spurs:
Hopefully this is a positive sign that there's an economic upturn in the United States. The San Antonio Spurs have seen a rise in ticket sales for the new season about to kickoff tonight. [T]he Spurs have sold more than 11,000 season tickets for the 2012-2013 campaign. The franchise hasn’t reached that mark since 2008 — before the U.S. economy hit rock bottom. According to the report, the team has also seen a rise in sales (90%) of their luxury suites. “A lot of markets have looked to change some of that suite space because they can’t sell it,” says Spurs Sports & Entertainment President Rick Pych. Despite coming up short in the Western Conference Finals last season, this just shows Spurs fans are behind the team and willing to head to the AT&T Center to catch their favorite team in action. And why not? For many seasons, the team has put out a winning squad and have been in title contention giving fans reasons to fill the seats. What about you Spurs fans? Have you bought tickets for any home games this season? What about season tickets?

Tim Duncan offended Stephen Jackson wouldn’t let him rap on his new album

Stephen Jackson takes his music as seriously as his NBA career. In fact, if the highly-entertaining interview he gave recently is any indication he probably cares about rapping more than playing basketball. That’s why he had no problem flat-out denying Tim Duncan when Duncan asked if he could rap on his new album. “I asked him if I could rap a little on his album, and he told...

Spurs guard Manu Ginobili was again ruled out for Thursday night's game against Oklahoma City because of a back problem. He could make his season debut this weekend. Ginobili didn't play in San Antonio's season-opening win Wednesday at New Orleans and missed half the preseason because of back problems.

Blair tweets feelings on not playing in season opener

San Antonio Spurs' DeJuan Blair did not play in last night's season opener versus the Hornets (DNP-Coach's Decision) and he took to Twitter to voice his feelings. This is wat I expected! Lol I'm just not wat dude wants out there it just hit me!! And that's respect! Just KNO I'm doing my part! #SALUTE — DeJuan Blair (@DeJuan45) November 1, 2012...

Spurs Season Preview: Stop! Tiago Time!

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...

Diaw: The Team Is Ready

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...

Ginobili sitting for Spurs, Gordon out for Hornets

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. The...

POTD 10/31/12: Tim Duncan on Roger Mason Jr.

It’s not often that I have to check a roster to figure out exactly who was involved in a Poster of the Day.  It’s not often that I have to check a roster for any reason, really.  That being said, I must admit… I had no idea who Hornet #8 was when I first watched the following video. Ah yes, Roger Mason!  Remember that season he spent with the Spurs, the one where he hit...

Duncan, Parker impressed by Davis as Spurs hold on to beat Hornets

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...

Spurs outlast Hornets in Halloween night opener

  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...

Through the looking glass: Spurs bloggers, media predict the 2012-13 season

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. My take 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...

Spurs vs. Hornets preview

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...
