Splitter warns rookie countrymen of tough NBA transition

Going from playing, and even dominating, overseas and then transitioning into the NBA via draft or free agency signing can be quite humbling. Even some of the most highly-touted international players never make it in the NBA or have rough transitions before carving out a role. It's rare to see a player like San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili go from playing in Italy...

Report: Josh Howard to visit with Spurs

The last time we heard about Josh Howard and the San Antonio Spurs was on July 1, 2012. At that time, none of the Spurs' free agents had been re-signed yet, and it was looking like Danny Green might have actually been looking at other options at that point, so the move would have made sense. Now, once again according to Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears, Howard will be visiting...

Parker says playing time won't come easy for De Colo

If anyone on the current San Antonio Spurs roster knows Nando De Colo, it's fellow French teammate Tony Parker, who has played on the national team with De Colo for several years. De Colo also often backs up Parker and they see plenty of each other in practices with the national team. While Spurs fans have awaited his arrival in San Antonio since he was drafted with...

Video: Cory Joseph on working on his game in the offseason

San Antonio Spurs guard Cory Joseph didn't see too much time on the court for the Spurs as he was either regulated to the end of the bench or being bounced from San Antonio to Austin to play for the D-League Toros.

Toros promote Jenkins to head coach

As we spoke about when former Austin Toros head coach Brad Jones was hired as an assistant with the Utah Jazz, the Toros had two assistants that they could easily promote to replace Jones, especially since they've been part of the Toros franchise since under Quin Snyder's reign. Spurs Sports & Entertainment did just so, promoting Taylor Jenkins to the head coaching...

Former Spur Kerr reminisces about college days

Steve Kerr will go down in history as one of the greatest shooters of all time. His career 3-point shooting percentage is still the best ever and could stand for a long time, and he’ll always have his five NBA championships. But he was once a skinny kid headed off to college at the University of Arizona. Back in 1983, Kerr’s freshman year, the Arizona basketball program...

Parker: London games were unforgettable

When you look back at the 2012 London Olympic games and think of the French men’s basketball team, you immediately might recall the ending scene with Nicolas Batum purposely hitting Juan Carlos Navarro in the lower region of the body.

Video: Puppet Tony Parker goes golfing and fails

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is certainly loved by the entire country of France so it shouldn't come as a huge surprise he is a target of satires on French TV. Take this for example of puppet TP hitting the golf course and taking a swing. However, unlike the real Parker, this puppet isn't as coordinated like an finely tuned athlete and fails miserably.

Report: Spurs set to work out center Kyrylo Fesenko

The biggest need for the San Antonio Spurs is size. Aside from Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter, the Spurs depth at big men is scarce with an undersized DeJuan Blair (if the team doesn't trade him) and a one-dimensional player like Matt Bonner. And with the team striking out in available big men in the offseason (Chris Kaman and Andray Blatche), the Spurs are set to work...

Former Spur Horry not sold on Lakers

While the 2012-13 season is still over a month away from tipoff, many NBA fans and pundits have been quick to name the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat the participants of the 2013 NBA Finals.

Bayless starts Twitter fight with Durant

I’m very publicly open about my opinions on Skip Bayless. I think he’s an idiot. In fact, I think he’s such an idiot that I can’t be 100% sure he’s not one of the biggest trolls of all time. A guy ESPN throws on camera just to make everyone else angry with his outrageous opinions. If that’s the case, then bravo to ESPN for pulling that off, but if it’s not, then...

Mills takes a trip back home for the season starts

For NBA players, the offseason is a brief couple of months where they get to relax, spend time with family and friends and enjoy life a little bit before the grueling NBA schedule takes it all away. For international players, it gets a bit trickier. Even with the time off, it’s still quite a challenge to the schedule to hop on a plane and travel halfway across the world. ...
