Alright, the camouflage uniforms weren’t that bad… compared to the recently unveiled “Big Logo” Christmas uniforms. The Spurs are rolling with an 8-1 record but in what areas do they still need to improve? What are some of the surprises around the league and what does this mean for San Antonio?
DeJuan Blair talk makes a return, Splitter should be traded, and the Sixers don’t quite suck as bad as we thought they were going to. Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) rejoins host Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) to jabber about all of this and more on the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.

Another week, another DeJuan Blair update, and another chance to take a shot at the San Antonio Spurs.
Now that the first couple of weeks of the 2013-14 NBA season are now in the books, players that are new to their respective teams, are starting to solidify their spots in the rotation and become more familiar with their new teammates and playbook. And that much is true for Blair.
Through eight games thus far, Blair is averaging 8.8 points and 7.9 rebounds in just under 21 minutes a contest, while shooting 56% from the floor. The rebounding and field goal percentage numbers are both on pace to be career bests for the 24-year-old Blair.no comments

AT&T CENTER – Washington Wizards guard Garrett Temple returned to San Antonio Wednesday as the Spurs defeated the Wizards 92-79. Temple spent 19 games in the 2009-10 season with the Spurs and just three games in the 2010-11 season, but in his short stint as a Spur, he learned some valuable lessons that he’s carried with him all the way to today.
Before the Spurs and Wizards tipped off, I caught up with Temple to ask him about his time in San Antonio, what he’s seen from the team since departing, and we also discussed their future.
When Temple was with San Antonio, the big three of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker were in their late 20s to early 30s. I asked him if he was surprised to see them 28 seconds from a championship this past summer, where they lost to the Miami Heat in seven games in the NBA Finals.
“Not at all man,” said Temple, “and Tony isn’t as old as he likes to tell people. He’s been in the league since he was 18 or 19. When I was playing with him, he was in his late 20s, but it didn’t surprise me at all (to see them in the Finals).”no comments

While the San Antonio Spurs’ camouflage uniforms, worn for military celebration night, may not have had many proponents, it’s hard to argue with a win.
The Spurs hosted the Washington Wizards on a one-game home stand and their recent trend of big wins didn’t end on the East coast, as the Spurs finished off the Wizards early in a 92-79 victory, good enough for their sixth straight win.
The Spurs, as has been the case lately, got out on a quick run, scoring early and often. Kawhi Leonard knocked down a jumper and two straight three-pointers for an early 8-0 run.
While the Spurs were scoring at a blistering pace, the Wizards shot an anemic 2-for-12 from the field midway through the first quarter and finished the quarter shooting at a 30 percent clip to the Spurs’ 52 percent.
“We couldn’t make a shot. We moved the ball. We had nobody,” Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. “We stayed with it, kept fighting, kept playing, tried to continue to move it along and get somebody going.”no comments
It would not be a surprise if you were to look up the words "Leadership" and "Integrity" in the dictionary and see the picture of “David Robinson.
For over a decade, “The Admiral” lead the San Antonio Spurs both on and off the court and showed new teammates what was expected of them.
So during a recent interview with Dan Patrick, the subject matter turned to a lack of leadership in NBA locker rooms and hazing that occurs during a player’s rookie season.no comments
