Dirk not at 100%

The only thing San Antonio Spurs fans want more than to win it all this year is for the Dallas Mavericks to lose their title as reigning NBA champions.

Buford was happy that Joseph fell to the Spurs in the draft,...

Parker apparently not liked

By now, most everyone has heard that Kris Humphries is the most hated player in the NBA, edging out LeBron James according to Forbes. The whole list is not much of a surprise: three Heat players, two Lakers (three if you count Odom), and a handful of others who generally come off as being too cocky for their own good. But if you scroll down the list to number four, there’s a...

Spurs to showcase throwback jerseys this season

I may be biased but I do feel the San Antonio Spurs have one of the coolest uniforms in the NBA.
