San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker's new PEAK sneakers commercial is out and the TV spot sure does remind us just how fast Parker is out on the court.
For the commercial touting the "TP9 Team Lightning" line of sneakers, Parker is shown to be zipping through defenders, and leaving them in his wake.
Check out the new commercial which aired in China and weigh in on the new TP9 kicks.no comments
Burn!!!!! Hardly. Before we all jump down on Gregg Popovich for possibly taking a dig at former Spur Bruce Bowen, this is not what he intended or was trying to do when stating that Bowen could not pass nor dribble when he came to San Antonio. It was a work in progress.
There is no question how high Popovich is on Leonard. Through two seasons with San Antonio he is starting to show all the fans and San Antonio Spurs front office glimpses on what he could possibly become. Leonard as many fans and teammates know is the Spurs best defender and he will be given the task night in and night out to guard the opposing teams best player.no comments
The San Antonio Spurs (2-1) will look to avoid a two-game losing streak as they visit the win-less Denver Nuggets (0-2) at the Pepsi Center.
The Spurs are coming off a loss 105-115 to the Blazers in Portland. Tony Parker led the team with 17 points, 9 assists and 5 rebounds while Marco Belinelli added 19 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists in 26 minutes.
The Nuggets are coming off a 98-113 loss to the Blazers as well. Ty Lawson led Denver with 21 points and 6 assists.
And as the Spurs look to avoid being Denver's first win of the season, here are five things to watch for in tonight's contest.
• Denver was 15-0 at home in 2012-13 and have won 49 consecutive home games when shooting 50 percent or better.no comments
With the San Antonio Spurs sitting at two wins and one loss on the season, point guard Tony Parker spoke about the start to the season on his French radio show and also weighed in on Nicolas Batum's late three pointer which gave him a triple-double as the Blazers handed the Spurs their first lost of the season.no comments
In an effort to hopefully lengthen his career, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili decided against playing in international play over the summer after suffering nagging injuries that affected him, especially in the NBA Finals where it seemed like Ginobili was on his last legs.
It seemed chances were slim that he’d consider playing with Argentina in the World Cup in Spain, but he said back in July and reiterated recently to Argentinean site TyCSports there is definitely a possibility of him returning to the national team when they compete in Spain.no comments
It didn't take long until a member of the San Antonio Spurs got hit with a flop warning and it's not the guard you might be thinking of.
Backup point guard Patty Mills got the warning for an apparent flop during the second game of the season against the Los Angeles Lakers.
The play happened during the 4th quarter with under 12 minutes to go when Jordan Hill, Lakers forward/center, drove in and kicked out when the defense collapsed.no comments
At 37-years old, one would think San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan would be a shell of his former self and show dramatic signs of slowing down in his NBA career. Well think again.
Duncan has showed no signs of slowing down and continues to be one of the premier big men in the NBA but what has been his secret? Staying in shape? Watching what he eats? Sure, all of that plays a huge part in his longevity but maybe Duncan has been taking trips back in time.
While at the recent Alamo City Comic convention, the DeLorean time machine from the movie "Back to the Future" was on hand for fans to snap pictures and Duncan was there with his kids to soak in the fun and hop into the DeLorean time machine.no comments
There is no doubt a lot of point guards in the league today that many owners, and analysts would love to be apart and lead their teams or even start their team with. NBA Analyst Shaquille O'Neal on NBA TV was asked the simple question whom he thought is the best point guard in the league today and whom he would take to start his team.
O'Neal in the video went on to state that his first choice of course would be LeBron James but quickly stated though he is not a point guard he would go with Tony Parker whom he dubbed as the same time player as James.no comments
In the past, accomplishing a triple-double was something that deserved to be celebrated, but as in real life there is a right and wrong way to go after this achievement. No player wants their triple double to be tainted in any way.
Unfortunately Nic Batum focus on getting that elusive triple double took precedence over his common sense.
At the end of this weekend’s Portland Trailblazer and San Antonio Spurs match up, Nic Batum put up a three-point shot (which went in) with 9.0 seconds left on the clock and his team leading by seven points. And it seems in the following photo, Tim Duncan was not amused.no comments
