This past Tuesday during the Miami Heat 104-95 victory over the Toronto Raptors, LeBron James actions with 1-minute 35-seconds has caused quite a stir with the players and fans in Toronto. James advances the ball, after a save by teammate Ray Allen, dribbles it up the floor and then what transpires afterwards is not a good show of sportsmanship.no comments
San Antonio Spurs backup guard Nando De Colo was expected to make a run at the up-for-grabs backup point guard position during training camp, but it quickly became apparent that the race came down to Cory Joseph and Patty Mills.
Now De Colo finds himself at the bottom of the rotation, and in his contract year, he hasn't made enough of an impact when he did have time in preseason nor has he done so when he's played sparingly in the regular season.no comments
After a season filled with more ups than downs, San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili looks like a different player early this 2013-14 NBA season.
Last season, it seemed as if time had caught up with No. 20 and his best days were behind him. Fans wrote him off and even Manu admitted he lost the passion for the game. But do not think for a minute that he is weak.
In an interview with Argentinean site Ole, Manu spoke on his struggles last season and made it clear - he is not a "wimp" for admitting he wasn't' the same player last year.no comments
AT&T CENTER-- In the small sample size theater that is the opening weeks of the NBA regular season, points of emphasis seem to be, well, emphasized, in more glaring ways than one.
On one hand, there are the delay of game calls, carrying (three-to-four called on a post player attempting to back down a defender by my unofficial count), and traveling violations officials have been instructed to whistle at every opportunity. On the other, there is the frenetic pace the league has picked up out of the gate.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
