Project Spurs kicks off its San Antonio Spurs 2013-14 season preview with an article from Paramjit Mahal on the two newest Spurs - Marco Belinelli and Jeff Ayres.
With the bad taste of the NBA Finals still in their mouths, the San Antonio Spurs set forth during the off season to shore up the bench that was a shell of what it was during the regular season.
With that in mind, the Spurs brought in Marco Belinelli and Jeff Ayres in order increase the fire power and the depth coming off of the bench and help Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker stay healthy for a final playoff push to get title No. 5.no comments
AT&T CENTER – In their sixth preseason game on Tuesday, the San Antonio Spurs blew out the Orlando Magic 123-101. How did forward Tim Duncan see the preseason match, well, a bit more fun than just having to participate in a normal practice.
“It’s fun,” said Duncan. “It’s better than practice. We get to play against a different team, a different offense, a different set of guys and get to run our stuff against someone who does not know exactly what we’re going to run.”
Resting for the Spurs Tuesday was point guard Tony Parker, while Jameer Nelson rested for the Magic. Spurs guard Cory Joseph got the start and it began with a quick offensive outburst in the first quarter as the Spurs put 33 points on the scoreboard and never looked back.no comments

Project Spurs kicks off its San Antonio Spurs 2013-14 season preview with an article from Jose Grijalva on Marco Belinelli being the team's X-Factor.
When Marco Belinelli decided to turn down more lucrative offers and sign with the San Antonio Spurs, the team essentially hit a jackpot.
Even though the team was one win away from an NBA championship last season, Belinelli is exactly what the Spurs were missing in the postseason and that's exactly why he'll be the X-Factor for the Spurs this season.
One of Marco's most well known traits on the court is his shooting, something that's been mentioned since his performances last playoffs as a member of the Chicago Bulls. His overall shooting numbers aren't that impressive (especially his 3FG%), but there's many factors to that which should comfort Spurs fans.no comments

They are two of the best forwards in this era of the NBA - San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan and Dallas Mavericks' Dirk Nowtizki. Both have won NBA titles, garnered NBA MVP honors, selected as All-Stars multiple times, and are locks for the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Because of their success, some debate which is the better player and which would a team want to build a franchise around.
Weighing in on the debate is "The Human Highlight Reel" himself, Dominique Wilkins, on NBA TV's "Open Court." Needless to say, Dominique wholeheartedly says Duncan has the complete skill-set and overall game over Nowitzki's style of play. Check out the video below.no comments
