Tim Duncan stars in fantastic ad for new cereal ‘Slam Duncan O’s’

One doesn’t generally think of Tim Duncan when it comes to charismatic pitchmen. But when the time came for a local Texas grocery chain to promote a new cereal celebrating the recently retired San Antonio Spurs star, it made perfect sense to capitalize on Duncan’s unassuming and low-key personality by having him star in a absolutely fantastic commercial.

Spurs rebuilding a rivalry

Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Karl-Anthony Towns put on a show in the second half on Tuesday night. What would seven games of this look like? Confession time: I’ve always been kind of a closet Minnesota Timberwolves sympathizer. Of all the expansion franchises which came into the league in the late ’80s to mid ’90s, they felt the least like a marketing exercise. Minneapolis...

Popovich's Spurs are back in Mexico after a bad experience

MEXICO CITY (AP) The last time that the San Antonio Spurs visited Mexico to play a regular-season game, the contest was canceled because of smoky conditions from a malfunctioning generator.

WATCH: Bats disrupt Lakers practice, D’Angelo Russell has funny reaction

The Lakers had an unlikely visitor late Wednesday night when they were trying to get some extra practice in at the AT&T Center. A swarm of bats somehow made their way into the building and began flying around above the court, so it was a bit difficult to shoot. Guard D’Angelo Russell seemed amused by it and posted the whole thing on Snapchat. “We got bats on the floor....

Popovich only watches game tape for one ‘ridiculous’ player

Gregg Popovich has been around the block a time or two, to say the least, so he often approaches typical coaching practices a bit differently than his colleagues. In fact, the San Antonio Spurs head coach admitted this week he doesn’t really watch game tape this early during the NBA season … except when it comes to one team, who boats a player whom Pop referred to as “ridiculous...

Jonathon Simmons comes out of nowhere to make an absurd chase-down block

San Antonio Spurs guard Jonathon Simmons turned the ball over in the final seconds of the third quarter on Thursday night against the Los Angeles Clippers, but he certainly made up for the play just seconds later on the other end of the floor.

WATCH: DeAndre Jordan jams on Pau Gasol

DeAndre Jordan is a force of nature. Unfortunately for Pau Gasol, he felt the full effects of Jordan’s strength. The Los Angeles Clippers faced off against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night and Jordan decided the matchup would be the best time to posterize someone new. The victim? 36-year-old Gasol. On a slick Chris Paul bounce pass, Jordan straight-up posterizes a defenseless...

Tim Duncan's Final Send Off

For one long moment, Gregg Popovich couldn't speak as he fixed his gaze near midcourt. Aside from random, floating voices screaming variations of "We love you Tim," the bodies that filled the overflowing sea of white shirts in the AT&T Center were silent, waiting for the coach's last words, feeling his exact feelings. Tim Duncan was the focus of Pop's stare, sitting in the midcourt...
