It seems the writers for the animated cartoon "Looney Tunes" must be fans of San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili. During a recent episode of the kid's cartoon show, once again "Lola Bunny" showed her affection for Manu by having a part in a play based on Ginobili which was to be played by "Speedy Gonzales." Makes sense seeing how both are quite fast on their feet. Check it out. Pretty cool huh? However, this wasn't the first time "Lola" showed her love for Ginobili. In a past episode, she showed off her Ginobili basketball trading card and expressed her feelings for the Spurs' guard. (h/t MVPtexas.com)

Ginobili's mission for this season is clear

Postseasons have been disappointing for San Antonio Spurs fans lately ever since 2007 when the team won their last NBA championship. No one can say the Spurs didn't try to win since then, they just didn't have the pieces to put a championship caliber team together. Last year looked promising, but the chemistry the team seemed to build in a small amount of time proved...

Spurs come to town with six-game win straak

Coming off another stifling defensive display, the San Antonio Spurs carry plenty of momentum into the new year. The Spurs try to extend their season-high winning streak to seven Wednesday night as they open a two-game trek against the Milwaukee Bucks. One night after cruising to a 111-86 win at Dallas, San Antonio (25-8) blew out Brooklyn 104-73 on New Year's Eve. Tony Parker...

Splitter taking pressure off Duncan

Tiago Splitter is probably not going to ever be a 20 and 10 guy. He’s not going to dominate the post, grab every rebound and assert his muscle down low. Luckily for the Spurs, that’s not what they need from him. At least not right now. What they need from Splitter is for him to take the pressure off Tim Duncan. That’s what the Spurs have been searching for for years. As...

Veteran, gritty Spurs humble host Bucks

MILWAUKEE -- The way the San Antonio Spurs are currently playing, it's going to take a perfect performance from an opponent to beat them.

Bucks prevent blowout, make Spurs work for victory

For one half of basketball on Wednesday, it seemed as if the San Antonio Spurs were going to not only extend their six-game winning streak to seven, but they might also get to rest their starters in blowout fashion as the Spurs went into halftime against the Milwaukee Bucks leading by 17 points. The Spurs did win Wednesday 117-110, but the second half was a battle as the Bucks...

Duncan scores 28 to lead Spurs over Bucks 117-110

By Andrew Wagner, The Sports Xchange MILWAUKEE -- On the final box score, it was a close game. Very close. Close enough that one might think San Antonio’s biggest lead -- 21 points -- was a typo. But the San Antonio Spurs’ 117-110 victory over the Bucks on Wednesday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center wasn’t close at all. The Spurs’ seventh consecutive victory -- though...

Spurs beat Bucks for seventh straight win

Even with Parker's better offensive performance,...

Knicks 100, Spurs 83

NEW YORK -- This time, there was no need to complain about the absence of the San Antonio Spurs' stars by the end of a marquee matchup. The New York Knicks had made it completely reasonable for Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to rest them at the end of New York's 100-83 rout at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night. Carmelo Anthony scored 23 points for the Knicks and point...

Shootaround: Garden party

San Antonio Spurs (26-8) vs. New York Knicks (21-10) 7:30 p.m. It is Thursday night. Two top NBA teams are playing each other with inter-conference positioning on the line.
