The Houston Rockets are already reaping the benefits of signing the biggest free agent this summer. The Rockets are off to a hot start at 4-2 and with Dwight Howard and James Harden in the fold, Houston may be looking at a deep playoff push.
However, former San Antonio Spurs guard Steve Kerr doesn't think Houston has what it takes to be a title contender this season.no comments
While the San Antonio Spurs were looking to find a backup to Kawhi Leonard by bringing in veterans Corey Maggette and Sam Young, it appears, they may have tried to bring in some shooting help as well in the form of the newly-retired Michael Redd.
Redd, who played for the Milwaukee Bucks for all but one season of his 12-year NBA career, formally announced his NBA retirement in Milwaukee on Wednesday.
But if you think Redd decided to call it quits because a lack of NBA offers, think again.no comments
The San Antonio Spurs (4-1) will host the Golden State Warriors (4-1) tonight at the AT&T Center.
The Spurs are coming off a 99-96 win over the Suns in San Antonio. The Spurs were led by Tony Parker's 20 points while Danny Green had a season-high 19 points. Green also blocked a career-high 4 shots. Tim Duncan added 17 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in the win.
The Warriors are coming off a 106-93 win over Minnesota. Andre Iguodala had 20 points and 6 assists to lead the Warriors to the win. Stephen Curry is questionable for tonight's game due to left ankle bone bruise.
And as the Spurs look to remain unbeaten in San Antonio, here are five things to watch for in tonight's contest:
• The Warriors have held opposing teams to below 40 percent from the field (.378), as they’ve done in all four wins this season.no comments
When San Antonio Spurs' Patty Mills and Boris Diaw are not lighting up the court, they are tearing it up on the mic at a karaoke bar. Well, at least making an attempt to kill it on the mic.
That's right, Mills and Diaw flexed their vocal "talents" to the tune of "Killing Me Softly" by the "Fugees" and needless to say, they might want to stick to their day job.
Check out Mills and Diaw's duet but be warned, it may make your pet dog howl.no comments
Before he changed his name and before he joined the San Antonio Spurs, Jeff Ayres suited up for the Portland Trail Blazers and brought the energy to the team huddle.
As a rookie for Portland, Ayres pre-game ritual was to fire up the team and needless to say, he really fired up the team. From yelling at the top of his lungs, pumping his fists, and cursing up a storm, Jeff made sure his teammates were ready to go to war on the court.
Check out what the former player named "Pendergraph" did while in Portland. I sure hope as this season progresses, he does the same for the Spurs. The look on coach Gregg Popovich's face will be priceless.no comments
This past Tuesday during the Miami Heat 104-95 victory over the Toronto Raptors, LeBron James actions with 1-minute 35-seconds has caused quite a stir with the players and fans in Toronto. James advances the ball, after a save by teammate Ray Allen, dribbles it up the floor and then what transpires afterwards is not a good show of sportsmanship.no comments
San Antonio Spurs backup guard Nando De Colo was expected to make a run at the up-for-grabs backup point guard position during training camp, but it quickly became apparent that the race came down to Cory Joseph and Patty Mills.
Now De Colo finds himself at the bottom of the rotation, and in his contract year, he hasn't made enough of an impact when he did have time in preseason nor has he done so when he's played sparingly in the regular season.no comments
After a season filled with more ups than downs, San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili looks like a different player early this 2013-14 NBA season.
Last season, it seemed as if time had caught up with No. 20 and his best days were behind him. Fans wrote him off and even Manu admitted he lost the passion for the game. But do not think for a minute that he is weak.
In an interview with Argentinean site Ole, Manu spoke on his struggles last season and made it clear - he is not a "wimp" for admitting he wasn't' the same player last year.no comments
AT&T CENTER-- In the small sample size theater that is the opening weeks of the NBA regular season, points of emphasis seem to be, well, emphasized, in more glaring ways than one.
On one hand, there are the delay of game calls, carrying (three-to-four called on a post player attempting to back down a defender by my unofficial count), and traveling violations officials have been instructed to whistle at every opportunity. On the other, there is the frenetic pace the league has picked up out of the gate.no comments
