Bolthouse Farms, a Texas-based company selling "Shakedowns", is inherently simple -- they offer baby carrots in a bag, mixed with a natural seasoning (be it ranch or lemon lime, whatever) and you just shake them in the bag until you're ready to eat a quick snack. Hence the word "shake," I think. I'm not entirely sure what the down part is all about.
Matt Bonner, a professional basketball player, is also inherently simple -- he stands on the perimeter, primarily shoots 3-pointers, very rarely plays point guard and he wears New Balance shoes, the epitome of simple. His hair is also the same color of baby carrots!
The pair made a perfect advertising match.no comments
It must have been "NBA Footwork 101" for Clippers' DeAndre Jordan during his team's recent matchup versus the San Antonio Spurs.
And Jordan's teacher was Tim Duncan.
During the second quarter, DeAndre found himself guarding Duncan and what happened was simply a lesson for the young Clippers center. TD put on a footwork show and schooled DeAndre.
Check out this absolutely glorious fundamental footwork by No. 21. It looks like there's much to learn still for Jordan.
After defeating the Phoenix Suns in Phoenix on Wednesday, the San Antonio Spurs resumed play on Thursday in Oakland against the Golden State Warriors, who had recently welcomed back forward Andre Iguodala from injury.
On the Spurs’ side, Tony Parker would miss his second game due to injury while Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili also wouldn’t play against the Warriors in order to rest. So, who were going to be the Spurs’ main options on Thursday? It ended up being a slew of them from an Italian to two Americans, an Australian, a Frenchman, a Brazilian and more, as the Spurs ended up defeating the Warriors on the road 104-102.no comments

Are the Warriors an elite team?
The Warriors' +3.8 point differential (per 100 possessions) indicates they are an elite team, or at least sub-elite (distinguishing between levels of "elite" is, of course, very arbitrary) But their 14-12 record indicates that these Warriors, currently on the outside looking in the Western Conference playoff picture, aren't much more than an average team.
I'd lean towards the former for two reasons -- they are very good on offense and defense, ranking 11th in points per possession and eighth in points allowed per possession, respectively.no comments
The San Antonio Spurs (20-5) will visit the Golden State Warriors (14-15) tonight in Oakland but will still be without guard Tony Parker who is nursing a bruised shin.
The Spurs are coming off a 108-101 win over the Suns. Manu Ginobili scored 11 of his season-high 24 points in the final four-plus minutes.
The Warriors are coming off a 104-93 win over the Pelicans. Stephen Curry led the way with 28 points and 12 assists.
This will be the second meeting between the teams with the Spurs winning 76-74 in the first matchup.
And as the Spurs and Warriors get set to rumble, here are five things to watch for during tonight's contest:
The Warriors are just 5-10 when Klay Thompson is held to 21 points or fewer.no comments
Last Monday’s game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Clippers show showcased a pair coaches who appear to have taken completely different paths to achieve coaching success but share common beliefs that have been critical to their success.
Ben Bolch of the LA Times, delved in to comparing the Coach Greg Popovich and Coach Glen “Doc” Rivers.no comments
Former San Antonio Spurs forward (now with the Clippers) Stephen Jackson's time in silver and black may have come to a tumultuous end last season but it appears coach Gregg Popovich and Jackson have no ill will between each other.
After the Spurs recent matchup with the Clippers, which resulted in a loss for San Antonio, Pop had some fun with Capt. Jack and proceeded to steal his headband when he wasn't looking.

Coming into Wednesday’s matchup with the Phoenix Suns, the San Antonio Spurs already knew they would be without point guard Tony Parker, who suffered a right shin contusion on Monday in the team’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Spurs were about to have the task of facing a Phoenix team that was on a 5-game winning streak.
Apparently, one 36 year old on the Spurs’ roster, was ready for the challenge.
Manu Ginobili and the Spurs would comeback down 10 points Wednesday to defeat the Suns 108-101 in Phoenix behind Ginobili’s 24 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals, including a clutch fourth quarter in which he scored 11-of-his 13 fourth quarter points in the final five minutes of the game.no comments
