The San Antonio Spurs are a team that possesses all kinds of traits. They have been characterized as a team that is boring to watch. Others that have followed the Spurs since their existance knows that their style of basketball still mirrors how they started off their luxurious organization.
While watching Spurs games on the television, those that can't catch the games locally can only catch the team if their games are nationally televised have heard of the phrase "putting on a clinic."

Another week, another DeJuan Blair update, and another chance to take a shot at the San Antonio Spurs.
Now that the first couple of weeks of the 2013-14 NBA season are now in the books, players that are new to their respective teams, are starting to solidify their spots in the rotation and become more familiar with their new teammates and playbook. And that much is true for Blair.
Through eight games thus far, Blair is averaging 8.8 points and 7.9 rebounds in just under 21 minutes a contest, while shooting 56% from the floor. The rebounding and field goal percentage numbers are both on pace to be career bests for the 24-year-old Blair.no comments
