The San Antonio Spurs were the first team to hit the 30-win mark this season. Does it matter despite all the struggles against "good" teams? Trade rumor is in full swing and the Spurs were oddly quoted as aggressive shoppers. With Danny Green is out for at least a month, does the speculation of a Spurs mid-season bear any weight?
Kawhi Leonard's offensive struggles, more Aron Baynes love, and All-Star jerseys. Quixem Ramirez (@quixem) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) join host Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) to talk all this and more on the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.

Tony Parker has come a long way when he was drafted by the San Antonio Spurs back in 2001. At just 20 years of age, Parker was brought into a Spurs organization that knew exactly what they were looking for and at the start, patience with Parker was fading.
For a young kid coming into a professional world and playing with an organization like the Spurs, there were a lot of building blocks and obsticales that he himself had to go through in order to get him on the same path that the organization was heading towards.no comments
Nando De Colo's unhappiness with his role on the Spurs has been well documented, but throughout the process, he's maintained his professionalism and state of readiness in case his number gets called.
Except now his number's being called by European teams in need of the combo guard's services.
First with the report that Turkish club Fenerbahce was pursuing the 26-year-old Frenchman, now De Colo's agent has come out and denied any rumors of Nando leaving mid-season to return to France and play professionally there. De Colo's agent also says that he will finish the season with San Antonio and will listen to all offers this summer.no comments

San Antonio Spurs' Matt Bonner is no stranger to quirkiness. From his dry humor to his all around goofiness, Bonner is shy to ham it up for the camera.
Case in point the following video.
Check out Bonner doing his Andy Kaufman "Mighty Mouse" impersonation and captures the late comedian perfectly.no comments
As the San Antonio Spurs prepare for tonights match-up against the Utah Jazz in the Alamo City and in the AT&T Center, the rafters will be packed from top to bottom. Thus far, the San Antonio Spurs are the top team in the Western Conference sporting a 30-8 record, first team to 30 wins in the NBA this season mind you, and this has not gone unnoticed by the Spurs faithful all throughout San Antonio.
Through the first half of their home schedule the San Antonio Spurs are ranked in the top ten. (H/T Scott Bailey from San Antonio Business Journal) for the following information. San Antonio ranks third amongst the thirty NBA teams averaging 18,386 fans at the beautiful AT&T Center. How do they get these numbers? All of this information is compiled by ESPN's turnstile tracking data.no comments
AT&T CENTER – With 5:09 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter on Wednesday, there stood the San Antonio Spurs on their way to their 31st victory of the season as they led the Utah Jazz 100-84.
The final five minutes wouldn’t end as the Spurs had planned, as rookie Trey Burke (17 points, 11 assists, 11 points in the final five minutes) and the Jazz outscored the Spurs 21-9 in the final five minutes to cut the Spurs’ lead to two points with 7.4 seconds remaining. The Jazz wouldn’t complete the upset as clutch plays and free throws developed from Tony Parker (25 points, 9 assists) and Marco Belinelli (15 points, 7 rebounds) that helped the Spurs hold on for the 109-105 victory.no comments
No matter how much you manage minutes and plan for back-to-back games, the grind of an 82 game schedule is bound to catch up to you. Except the injuries haven't occurred to who you normally expect. Duncan, Ginobili and Parker are relatively healthy, having played in 35 of the Spurs 38 games this season. (Quickly, knock on wood before anything happens to them.) It's the injuries to Green and Splitter that we should be fearful of.
Well, maybe not.
Even though the silver and black will be without Tiago Splitter or Danny Green for at least the next four weeks, there's no need to panic. Pop and R.C. have built their roster perfectly for this scenario. Not only can the Spurs rely on their "next man up" mentality, but they can do it without upsetting the rotation, while slightly showcasing their bench assets as possible trade bait.no comments
