The recent San Antonio Spurs game against the Philadelphia 76ers presented the Spurs’ head coach and players with much more than just another stop on an east coast road trip.
Unlike this time last year, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich had to look across the sideline to the other bench to see a familiar face that had been by his side for seven years.
Instead of huddling up with Pop and the other coaches during timeouts while they discussed what Popovich would end up diagramming on a grease board for the players, Brown was on the other bench leading his own group of coaches and players.no comments
Former San Antonio Spurs forward Dennis Rodman was or possibly is still the best rebounder that graced the NBA. Not much of a scorer, Rodman's antics on the floor is what made him fun to watch and possibly annoyed fans as well as players. It was not the 'I don't care attitude" he had on the floor that drew many to like him, it was also how he spoke his mind on many things.
He has since been retired for many years now and when he is not hanging with his bff Kim Jun Yun, "The Worm" still loves to talk and is as flamboyant as ever. This go around, he hurls out some harsh language towards a former teammate of his, Kobe Bryant. Who would of known he had beef with Bryant.no comments
You know them, you love them. I am taking about the funny HEB commercials staring San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Kawhi Leonard.
The recent round of commercials have Manu and Tony acting like rich barons eating steaks to Parker handing out salsa to his teammates including Matt Bonner.
Check out the making of these wacky commercials including some hilarious out takes.no comments
Seven days ago the San Antonio Spurs had begun a sequence of five games in seven nights with a win in Denver. From there they would travel from the Rockies back down to San Antonio for a few games at home before traveling up to the East coast where they would defeat the New York Knicks by 31 points on Sunday.
Monday, with a matchup against former Spurs assistant Brett Brown and the upstart Philadelphia 76ers, the Spurs would look to win their 5th game in a row, though they would be without forward Tim Duncan who sat out of the game for rest.
Fast-forward to 48 minutes of play and the number 55 sticks out. Why, 55 stands for the number of points the Spurs have won by in the last two days as the Spurs defeated the 76ers in Philly by 24 points 109-85.no comments
When asked to describe San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich the most common words would be gruff, intimidating and non-cooperative. Anyone who has seen his one line in between quarter interviews would compare him to a bully or someone with a disdain for the media.
Popovich tends to believe that less is more when it comes to dealing with the media. So when he does speak/interact with the media, it is with a purpose and given the right topic he can really chew a person ear off.no comments
With tonight’s road game against the Philadelphia 76ers looming, I talked to Carey Smith of philadunkia.com to preview tonight’s game, a second game of a back-to-back against the Spurs that will reunite former coach Brett Brown with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich.
Here’s what we’ll be looking for tonight. Check out my answers to Carey's questions on Philadunkia.
1. As we talked about on the Q&A on your site, the underlying story is Brett Brown coaching on the other sideline. As someone who follows the 76ers closely, what's your early analysis on Brown through the first few games and do you see any similarities in his system to the Spurs' system?no comments
The San Antonio Spurs (6-1) will look to extend their winning streak to five tonight as they visit the Philadelphia 76ers (4-3).
