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
The 12th annual NBA GM survey is out and the San Antonio Spurs fared quite well.
From defending their Western Conference crown to returning to the NBA Finals, the team and individual players alike received accolades from NBA front office brass. Even Nando De Colo, Matt Bonner and Danny Green received attention from NBA GMs.
Here is how the Spurs did: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
There are only a handful of San Antonio Spurs players that actively use their Twitter accounts on a regular basis. Among them are Danny Green, Patty Mills, and Manu Ginobili. One Spurs player who doesn't have a Twitter account ventured into the digital world on Monday afternoon as forward Matt Bonner, aka, the 'Red Mamba' took over the @NiceKicks account, a shoe based company out of Austin, Texas.
Here are some of the entertaining tweets from Bonner as he went into the digital world and answered various questions from fans.no comments
The city of San Antonio not only supports the San Antonio Spurs (the single pro team in town aside from the WNBA Silver Stars) but a majority of the population supports the Dallas Cowboys. San Antonio can safely be called a Cowboys city.
Yet despite the Cowboys having their fair share of ups-and-downs, most Spurs fans cheer on Dallas come rain or shine but Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley has a confession that might annoy Spurs fans.
Beasley admits he isn't a Spurs fan (or a fan of any Texas NBA team) but is a fan of one of the Spurs chief rivals for years - Lakers' Kobe Bryant.no comments
During the San Antonio Spurs-Miami Heat preseason game, Tony Parker took a spill during the game when he crashed into a photographer on the baseline injuring his left hand.
And although the injury wasn't anything serious, during his radio show, Parker gave more details on the incident reassuring fans his hand will be fine.no comments
What do you give a person on their birthday when they seemingly have everything in the world? For San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker, you get him a DeLorean. That right, for Parker's birthday last year, his friends surprised him at his place with a brand-spanking new DeLorean.
Now TP can recreate his favorite moments from the movie "Back to the Future" so long as he doesn't hit 88 mph to ignite the flux capacitor or go back in time and find himself meeting the younger versions of his mom and dad and having to play "Johnny B. Goode" at the winter dance.
Then again, maybe Parker should use his DeLorean for time-travel so he can go back to last June and tell him teammates to close out on Miami's Ray Allen and tell Kawhi Leonard to make sure he hits his free throws in Game 6 of last season's NBA Finals.
Check out Parker getting his nice birthday gift.no comments
