Why the San Antonio Spurs will win the championship

The San Antonio Spurs lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder last season in the second round of the NBA playoffs. I predict the San Antonio Spurs will win the NBA Championship next season because of the addition of LaMarcus Aldridge. Every San Antonio Spurs fan doesn’t like to be reminded about the loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder last season. I’m sure some die hard fan take solace...

Spurs reportedly interested in Pau Gasol

Usually relatively inactive on the free-agent market, the San Antonio Spurs are coming off an offseason that saw them add All-Star big man LaMarcus Aldridge to the mix. Attempting to potentially change their MO midstream after a disappointing playoff exit in the conference semifinals, it now appears that the Spurs are looking to be active once again this summer. We already know...

Reggie Lewis' mom wouldn't mind Kevin Durant wearing No. 35 for Celtics

The Boston Celtics’ rich basketball tradition has one downside: It’s difficult for new players to find a number that’s not already hanging in the rafters. But it appears a special exception could be made if Kevin Durant comes to town. The Oklahoma City Thunder forward and soon-to-be free agent has worn No. 35 his entire career. That number, of course, belonged to Reggie Lewis...

New Pacers coach compares Myles Turner to LaMarcus Aldridge

Just a day after being formally announced as the Indiana Pacers new head coach, Nate McMillan seems to be going with that whole positive outlook approach. Promoted from his assistant coach role, McMillan inherits a playoff team that boasts one of the top all-around players in the Association in the form of Paul George.

The sudden disappearance of LaMarcus Aldridge

LaMarcus Aldridge left the Portland Trail Blazers last summer to win a ring with the San Antonio Spurs, but the irony is both teams got knocked out of the playoffs this week. Aldridge and the Spurs made it a game further against the Oklahoma City Thunder than the Trail Blazers did against the Golden State Warriors, the difference being the Trail Blazers lost four starters from a...

Dion Waiters on LaMarcus Aldridge: ‘One man can’t beat you’

It took a team effort for the Oklahoma City Thunder to stave off a 2-0 series deficit against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night. Five different Thunder players scored in double-digits with the All-Star tandem of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook tallying a combined 57 points. Meanwhile, the home-standing Spurs struggled a great deal to put up a solid team-wife performance...

LaMarcus Aldridge on dislocated finger: ‘It freaked me out’

San Antonio Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge suffered a pretty nasty injury on Thursday night, and it sounds like it gave him quite the scare. In the first quarter of a loss to the Golden State Warriors, Aldridge attempted a reverse layup but was rejected by Andrew Bogut. His right hand appeared to smack off the backboard, leaving his pinkie finger dislocated: Aldridge’s pinkie...

Leonard, Aldridge Are Ending The Big Three Era In San Antonio

The last time the San Antonio Spurs didn’t make the playoffs was 1997. That year, the Spurs had the third-worst record in the NBA at 20-62 and the second-worst in the Western Conference. Fortune shined on them during the draft lottery, though, as they were awarded the first pick in the draft. From that moment on, the franchise has completely transformed.The Spurs used that pick...

LaMarcus Aldridge Is Quietly Having A Career Year

The All-Star Break has come and gone, but it seems like the same old story with the Spurs. They have the second best record in the NBA at 50-9, leading their division by 15 games, and sitting only four games behind Golden State for the league’s best record. After last year’s disappointing first round playoff exit, the Spurs seem primed for a deep post-season run behind their...
