Who Said The Spurs Lack Personality?

There is a myth buzzing around the league that the San Antonio Spurs are boring.  That they lack personality. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Well luckily for you, I live to break and debunk myths.  Fun fact, I actually turned down a starring role in Myth Busters because I do it for fun anyways.  Maybe that was a lie. Who really knows. Anyway,  below are my five favorite Spurs commercials...

NBA Finals Predictions

Spurs in 6 - Jacob NobleIt takes defeat in order to win.  Every star has had this same dilemma.  Lebron lost twice before winning his first Finals.  Pierce, Garnett and Allen all lost many times in the playoffs before reaching their goal.  The Spurs lost last season to the Heat in the Finals in seven games has left a bad taste in their mouths.  As Tony Parker said, Popovich...

KG, Pierce Eliminated: What's Next?

Last night the Miami Heat defeated the Brooklyn Nets, 96-94, closing out the series in five games. After leading for most of the way and holding a 91-83 advantage with 4:49 left, Miami went on a huge run - overwhelming the Nets. The game was very familiar with Game Four in that fact that Brooklyn simply couldn't execute down the stretch whereas the Heat were phenomenal. Whether...

Q & A Of The Day: Thunder Obsessed's Jason Damiano

  And then there were 8.  After a rollicking 1st round, full of "Holy &#%" plays and heart stopping thrills, the 2nd round has "regressed to the mean" a bit. Seeing as the NBA team that goes up 2-0 goes on to win the series 94% of the time, I'm concluding that the Heat/Nets and the Spurs/Blazers series are all over except for the screaming. I decided...

2014 Playoffs: Dynamic Duos

Let me start by removing my hat and saying from my soul: Portland Trailblazers, I apologize. Months ago I wrote you off as "studio gangsters". I thought LaMarcus Aldridge was having a good-not-great season (24 ppg on 22 shots a game? Pffft). I ripped Lillard's defense and ridiculed the Blazers' late game shenanigans.
