Found September 05, 2012 on Project Spurs:

When San Antonio Spurs' Stehpen Jackson is not adding to his personal moutain-sized collection of Air Jordans, he is in his hometown of Port Arthur, TX putting on his Academy Basketball Camp for area kids.

And if the following video shows anything is that he is just as passionate as a coach and a player.

Jackson, who also is the head coach of the camp, must have learned much about being a hard-nosed coach from Gregg Popovich becuse in the video, he does not baby the campers. He is direct, wants the best from the campers, and doesn't care if they are just kids or his niece!

Check out "Stack Jack" coaching with some intensity while trying to give the kids some real-world advice and lessons. Watch out Pop, Jackson might take your job!

Spurs' Jackson has impressive shoe collection

What would you do with millions of dollars? There are way too many ways to answer this question. I would never work again and spend the rest of my life playing poker every day. Other people would buy nice cars, house, boats, etc. A lot of women would probably say, “I’d have so many nice pairs of shoes.” Those women are not alone. San Antonio Spur Stephen Jackson has invested...

Spurs' Stephen Jackson's Air Jordan collection is quite impressive

I think it is safe to say San Antonio Spurs' Stephen Jackson will have plenty of sneakers to last through the apocalypse, and beyond. Basketball players are notorious for owning extensive collections of sneakers but Spurs' Jackson just took it to another level. And by "another level," I mean he might own every Air Jordan known to mankind. Check out these...

Video: Spurs' Stephen Jackson rains threes but can you take on the Jackson 3-point challenge?

There is no doubt San Antonio Spurs' Stephen Jackson is clutch especially when it comes to nailing key three-point shots. Ask the Mavericks how deadly Jackson can be in the playoffs in 2003. For his career, Jackson shoots 33% from behind the arch and last season he connected on 30% of his three-point shots for San Antonio. So knowing Jackson's proficiency at hitting...

Spurs' Danny Green likes to laugh at coach Pop

San Antonio Spurs' Danny Green sure has come a long way from his days in New York. From the "Big Apple," UNC, the Cavaliers, the D-League to the Spurs, he sure has grown into a solid NBA player and contributor for one of the league's premier franchises. And even then, Green almost didn't come back to the Spurs heading into last season.  Fortunately,...

Spurs' Tony Parker uses trampoline to get air in latest commerical

The last time we saw San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker on the court, he was playing for Team France at the 2012 Olympics and more recently, hitting half-court shots. But if you are aching to see more of TP hitting the hardwood then you're in luck.  In case you don't know, Parker is the spokesman for French fast-food restaurant, QUICK, and even cut a video for the...

Spurs' Jackson gathering fellow players for rap album

For years athletes have been using their success in professional sports as a springboard to showcase their true passion: music. Inevitably a professional athlete will use some of his millions of dollars to buy a little time in a recording studio, lay down a few tracks and get publicly criticized for intentionally trying to decimate everyone’s eardrums. I’ve never listened...

Video: Think you can beat Stephen Jackson in a 3-point shooting challenge?

Imagine having not picked up a basketball in weeks. Then when you finally get back on the court, you decide to not get your groove back by hitting some lay-ups or swishing some free-throws. Rather, you get going by shooting NBA three-point shots. Sure, the weekend-baller may fail miserably but not if you're a pro-athlete like San Antonio Spurs' Stephen Jackson. ...

VIDEO: Tony Parker hits half court shot for the kids

Once again, Tony Parker is doing things for the French that he refuses to do for the San Antonio Spurs.  Late last week, the All-Star point guard was a participant in Boris Diaw's charity game in Bordeaux, France.  The half time entertainment involved a bunch of kids shooting half court shots in an attempt to win a watch from Diaw (I don't get that part either).  After...

Tony Parker continues world tour

Must be nice to be a highly paid, NBA star like San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker who gets to travel the world in the offseason. Recently, TP was seen in the desert hitching a ride in a dune buggy (which might not sit well with Spurs fans and coaching staff) and getting a snapshot of him next to a camel. But now it seem his world tour of exotic places continue as he hit...

Video: Top plays from 2011-12 Spurs season

The 2012-13 season for the San Antonio Spurs is creeping up fast but last season provided many memories, good and bad. The Spurs had one of their most successful runs in the regular season but came apart in the Western Conference Finals. But that loss to the Thunder in the WCF shouldn't overshadow the best plays from last season. Check out the top plays from the 2012...

If you ever wanted to watch an NBA player eat ribs in slo-mo, here you go (video)

For some reason perhaps known only to them, the brilliant comedy minds over at the NOC, the same folks behind the brilliant Steve Nash movie parody videos, believed it would be gripping to watch San Antonio Spurs player Stephen Jackson eating fried ribs and slow motion. And do you know what? They were absolutely correct. [...]

Manu still undecided about future with Argentina

Losing has different effects on different people. For some, the taste of defeat is enough to make you give up and quit, but for those who consider themselves competitors, losing just makes you work even harder. San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili has to have a bad taste in his mouth after failing to medal with his fellow Argentinians at the 2012 Olympics in London. They fought...

Rockets Promote Gersson Rosas To EVP Of Basketball Ops

Gersson Rosas had been on the short list of the San Antonio Spurs for their assistant general manager vacancy that eventually went to Scott Layden.

Spurs rank among top sports franchises

ESPN the Magazine released their Ultimate Team Rankings and once again, the San Antonio Spurs rank among the top three teams among all major American sports. The Spurs came in third overall behind the NFL's Green Bay Packers (2nd overall) and the Oklahoma City Thunder (first overall). Actually, the Spurs and Thunder are the top two teams in the NBA in the list. The...

Tony Parker Drills Halfcourt Shot

This video is weird. Tony Parker is at a charity event for his best friend Boris Diaw and sees an opportunity to be, well, charitable. There’s a kid trying to shoot a halfcourt shot for a prize, which turns out to be a watch. Thing is, the kid is like 10 and can’t physically shoot a halfcourt shot. In comes Tony, ready to save the day and take the shot for the kid, and makes...
