The San Antonio Spurs have a record 10 international players on the squad hailing from Argentina, Brazil, France, Australia, and Italy.

Check out what the rest of the team had to say about the diversity on the roster.

Video: Baynes' impressive highlights vs. Raptors

It's one of those nights we'll all remember where we were when Aron Baynes break out of his shell (for one game at least).

AT&T CENTER – Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love will most likely be the one who receives a lot of publicity for scoring 42 points, grabbing 14 rebounds, making 8-fo-9 three pointers, and scoring more than the entire San Antonio Spurs team in the third quarter (19-18) Friday, but off in the distance was 36-year old Manu Ginobili turning in a vintage performance as he helped...

Gary Neal Grateful For Opportunity From Spurs, Understood Their Business Decision

Gary Neal decided not to sign the $1.116 million qualifying offer from the San Antonio Spurs this offseason and accepted a two-year, $7.5 million contract from the Milwaukee Bucks. “I figured after three years, the Spurs benefitted me and I benefitted the Spurs,” Neal said. “But it’s a business.

Spurs demolish Bucks, 109-77

The Spurs were merciless against the injury-riddled Bucks and got their second win in as many nights against the Eastern bottom-dwellers. In hindsight, this one was over before it even started.
