Reminder: Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker are the only remaining active players with four or more championship rings

Sometimes it is good to remember the obvious things in life. Thank you redditor pclark90210 for pointing out something we could all stand to remember: There are no active players who have more rings than Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, or Tony Parker. With Kobe Bryant's retirement, the Spurs' "Big Three" sit solely atop that list. Timmy leads the way with five, while Tony and Manu both...

The 2015-16 San Antonio Spurs don’t look so bad anymore

Oh, to be a fly on the wall in the offices (and personal homes) of the San Antonio Spurs right now. What must the Spurs — coach by coach, player by player, support staffer by support staffer — be thinking as they watch the Oklahoma City Thunder lay waste to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals?

Are the Spurs' prospects in Europe ready for the NBA?

San Antonio has been drafting and stashing for years. With space potentially opening up on the roster this summer, it's time to catch up with the players that have been working on their game overseas. With 6.33 to go in Game 5 of the Western Conference semi-finals, Kawhi Leonard took a jab step to the right and froze his defender, Kevin Durant. Planting both feet, Leonard powered...

Should the San Antonio Spurs Replace Danny Green?

Danny Green was awarded with a huge contract extension after the 2014-2015 season. He followed it with his worst year on offense since becoming a starter for the San Antonio Spurs. Although his defense was still extremely solid, Green averaged only 7.2 points per game during the regular season while shooting about 38% from the […] Should the San Antonio Spurs Replace Danny Green...

Danny Green gets Lasik eye surgery after bad shooting year

San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green is typically a reliable shooter, especially from three-point range. This season — not so much. Green shot a career-worst 37.6 percent from the field and converted 33.2 percent from beyond the arc, which was his most inefficient production since his rookie season. Perhaps that inspired the 28-year-old to have surgery to correct his vision. Manrique...

Spurs celebrate end of their season in fantastic way

Draymond Green doesn't bother talking trash to Tim Duncan

Draymond Green and the Golden State Warriors fully expected to take on the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. That potentially epic matchup never came to fruition after the Oklahoma City Thunder upset San Antonio in six games in the Western Conference Semifinals. This doesn’t mean that Green, who is coming off his first career All-Star appearance, only has the...

There’s no compelling reason for Tim Duncan to retire

It is easy — very easy — to think or say that any argument advocating Tim Duncan’s return for another NBA season is selfish and emotional. That’s undeniable and inescapable. When a giant of a sport comes closer to the end of a decorated career — a two-decade-long journey which established a remarkably elevated standard of excellence — any columns opposing retirement...

The Spurs lost because they’re old? Don’t let them off so easily

The Spurs lost because they’re old. The Spurs are done. The Spurs couldn’t match the athleticism of the Oklahoma City Thunder. All of those statements have been uttered before. The first two have already been refuted multiple times. The third is reasonable and fundamentally accurate, but it still doesn’t tell the whole story of another playoff exit suffered by San Antonio at...

Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili haven’t made decisions on retirement yet

After the Spurs’ once promising season came to a crashing halt last night in Oklahoma City, speculation naturally turned to the future of some of their old stars, namely Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. After less than stellar performances against the Thunder, many are wondering if time is up for two of the men that became the backbone of the Spurs dominance. Duncan was terse. ...

Donovan outcoached Pop, but not in the way one might think

Billy Donovan didn’t coach his team all that well in his first-ever NBA playoff series in late April. The Dallas Mavericks might have lost a 4-1 series to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but Rick Carlisle coaxed so much more out of the resources available to him. The talent disparity between the two teams was too pronounced for coaching to ultimately matter in that series, but the point...

Game 6 was the standout in what was otherwise a lackluster series of performances for Duncan, who was held to a total...

How Oklahoma City has pushed the Spurs to the brink

The Oklahoma City Thunder defense seemed lost after Game 1 - a unit that struggled to make life even a little difficult for a San Antonio Spurs' offense that freely bombed away in the series opener. A little more than a week later, the Spurs can't so much as signal for a play without the Thunder jumping all over them. The Thunder allowed San Antonio to score 134.0 points per 100...

Game 5 of round two between the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder was decided last night in San Antonio.
