The streets of San Antonio were a sea of Spurs fans last night after the team swept the Grizzlies and captured the 2013 Western Conference Championship.
From car horns blaring to fans running down street with Spurs banners, the city of San Antonio was alive in celebrations.
Check out just how much Spurs fans love their hometown team including fans heading to the San Antonio airport late at night to welcome back their basketball heroes. It even caught the attention of Danny Green.

With the NBA’s pre-draft combine over and the draft coming up late next month, the San Antonio Spurs will begin working out potential draft candidates.
With the Spurs being of the best perimeter shooting teams in the league, it’s no surprise that they’ll be bringing in Syracuse sharpshooter James Southerland in for a workout and visit.
Southerland is a 6-8 swingman who played all four years at Syracuse and ended his career on a Final Four run. While he’s a bit one dimensional offensively, he’s an efficient shooter with range beyond the NBA three-point line.no comments
With apologies to every other player on the San Antonio Spurs roster, every fan and even Gregg Popovich, this Finals run isn't about them. It's not even about Tony Parker, who has been brilliant this postseason, especially against the Memphis Grizzlies. No this run to the Finals is about Tim Duncan and the quest to get him ring number five.
The idea that it's about Duncan more than everyone else became clear after the Spurs held off the Memphis Grizzlies Monday night to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2007. The evidence that this one came in several forms. First there was Tony Parker's postgame comments, where he admitted that he told Duncan he was going to do everything he could to get the Spurs another crack at the title after last year's devastating loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder (H/T to ESPN's J.A. Adande).no comments
San Antonio Spurs fans are still beaming with pride over the silver and black's sweep of the Grizzlies and stamping their ticket for a return trip to the NBA Finals. This will mark the franchise's fifth time in the Finals where San Antonio is 4-0.
After the team was crowned the Western Conference Champs, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Matt Bonner spoke on making it to the Finals with our friends over at News 4 San Antonio.
Here is a boat-load of videos for Spurs fans to feast on and relive the magic one more time.
During the NBA Finals, Rey Moralde of The No Look Pass will be contributing to Project Spurs during the San Antonio Spurs' chase for title number five. Here is Rey's first post on Tim Duncan returning to the NBA Finals.
The once heir to Gregg Popovich's throne in San Antonio with the Spurs has agreed to a deal that will make him the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks.
ATLANTA --The Atlanta Hawks have named Mike Budenholzer (BEW-den-holzer) the team’s new head coach, President of Basketball Operations/General Manager Danny Ferry announced today. Budenholzer becomes the 12th full-time head coach in Hawks history. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not announced.
San Antonio Spurs' Nando De Colo recently vented on his lack of playing time as the regular season ended and now in the postseason. His time on the court has dipped significantly and has only played in the playoffs during the Lakers opening-round series and not at all since.
His comments created a stir among Spurs fans, however, Nando followed up his comments to French media on his Facebook page and made the record clear - he is frustrated with the lack of playing time but does say as long as the team is winning, that is all that matters in the end.no comments
True to their word, the Memphis Grizzlies don’t bluff. It’s an admirable, if limiting, quality. There’s something we find noble about a person that tears straight forward at an opponent, all hustle, heart, grit and grind.
The San Antonio Spurs are back in the NBA Finals for a fifth time in franchise history as is Tim Duncan.
Duncan already has quite the resume winning four NBA titles and three NBA Finals MVP trophies and now will have a shot at adding the elusive fifth championship to his illustrious NBA career.
Prior to Game 3 in the Western Conference Finals, Duncan spoke on what it means to reach the NBA Finals again, how focused he is on the prize, how his age is a non-factor and more.
Needless to say, Duncan wants title No. 5 badly.no comments
