After their epic NBA Finals battle back in June, the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat met once again on Saturday as the Heat defeated the Spurs without MVP LeBron James 121-96.
Though it was just another preseason game, I decided to record a running diary (made famous by Grantland’s Bill Simmons). Even though the score was never really close, there were still some notable plays from several Spurs players.no comments

It’s rare that a professional NBA player chooses to stay in the town he played in. It’s rare enough when a player stays in one town throughout their career.
Luckily for the city of San Antonio, former Spurs hall-of-fame center David Robinson decided to remain a resident of the Alamo City after his playing days were up.no comments

Tomorrow night the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat will meet once again but this time, an NBA title will not be on the line.
The Spurs will visit the Heat in preseason action and return to where their hopes for a fifth title in franchise history came crashing down. After losing Game 6, a game where they seemingly had the win (and a title) in hand, their lead with seconds left in the game evaporated. They would lose Game 6 in overtime and eventually, Game 7.
The Spurs summer has been full of "what if's," terrible flashbacks, and an ugly feeling among the team that they simply blew it.
For Miami, they are still reveling at capturing the 2013 title but it certainly doesn't mean Chris Bosh cannot sympathize with San Antonio.no comments
San Antonio Spurs 2013 NBA Draft pick, Deshaun Thomas, will spend this year overseas playing with French squad Nanterre. The time spent overseas will hopefully get him ready to make the transition to the NBA should he ever suit up for the Spurs.
Playing away from the United States and in a different league other than the NBA will take some time for Thomas to get used to but in the video below, it seems he is adjusting just fine.
Thomas spoke on joining Nanterre and how the team is preparing for Euroleague play, and what he will bring to Nanterre including bringing the effort, competing and of course, scoring.no comments
