Was Tony Parker denied access to a Memphis restaurant because he didn’t have a reservation? Kelly English, a famous chef who owns an eatery called Restaurant Iris, created that impression when he sent out the following tweets on Friday night. Confirmed MT @memphisacp: Tony Parker tried to eat dinner @restaurantiris and was denied service by [...]
Despite claims to the contrary, the Spurs point guard says he never tried to get a table at an exclusive Memphis restaurant, only to be rebuked.
The San Antonio Spurs need to have Tim Duncan focused and ready to play. He is no longer the leading scorer on the team, but his contribution is immeasurable as he sets the example that every young player should hope to follow--which is why he has to be focused when the Spurs take on the Grizzlies

What a holiday weekend filled with tons of playoff sports action. I hope all went well for everyone and the weekend was filled with tons of bacon, sports and beer. Without further delay, lets get on to our Midday Cup Check for May 28, 2013.

I love the atmosphere and competitiveness of the NBA playoffs. There's really nothing like it. I also don't mind some friendly trash talk among Spurs fans and fans of opposing teams, and I'm all about a city getting behind their team.
But at some point, there's a line to where fun and games and a little friendly competition ends and unnecessary behavior starts...
Late in the second quarter of the Western Conference Finals between the Memphis Grizzlies and the San Antonio Spurs, there was a play in which Tim Duncan kicks out his leg as Marc Gasol attempts a pass, but unfortunately the ball would bounce off of Duncan’s leg and hit Gasol right in the face.

The last time the San Antonio Spurs were in the NBA Finals, Tony Parker was not quite a star and Tim Duncan was not quite over the hill (I think). Parker dominated that four-game sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers, led by a precocious LeBron James, by averaging 24.5 points per game and shooting 56.8 percent. It was Parker's moment and emergence as one of the best point guards in...
On Monday night, Tony Parker’s surgical 37 point effort in Memphis led the Spurs to a 93-86 road win and 4 game sweep of the Grizzlies. After the game, much of the chatter was around how Tim Duncan and he’s still competing at such a high level and how he’s probably the best Power Forward in the history of the NBA – not much to argue with there.
Jalen Rose, however, took...
This is always a fantastic way to celebrate winning the western conference finals. Check out some of the Spurs doing their best b-boy impressions. I am a little confused at Tim Duncan’s pose here, but I won’t lose sleep over it.

When they won their fourth championship in nine years back in 2007 they were already being called an “old” team. Well, once again they’ve somehow resisted the concept of aging on their way to their first NBA Finals in six years. If this series taught us anything it’s that San Antonio continues to reinvent itself; finding ways to win and finding ways to adapt. Make no mistake...
Tweet The Memphis Grizzlies had the San Antonio Spurs on their heels for the majority of game three of the Western Conference Finals. They looked to be answering the call with the series back in Memphis. However, things didn’t end well for the Grizzlies, as the Spurs came back and won by 11 in overtime. [...]
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Go ahead and call the San Antonio Spurs old. They're also experienced enough to know what to do only a win away from their first NBA Finals berth since 2007.
Finish off the Memphis Grizzlies.

10) In retrospect, the Grizzlies' choice of playing "Don't Stop Believing" while they were being swept seems a little insulting9) This is the 5th time the Spurs have reached the Finals, though you will be forgiven if you thought it was every other goddamn year since the early 90's8) Perhaps trading Rudy Gay for the utterly useless Tayshaun...
