Spurs Update – June 16
The San Antonio Spurs suffered a crushing defeat in the 2013 NBA Finals at the hands
of the Miami Heat, but the Spurs got their revenge this season by taking down the Heat in five games. After splitting the
first two games in San Antonio, many people thought the Heat had the upper hand in the series. However, the Spurs proceeded
to decimate the Heat in each of the next three games to earn the NBA Championship. The Spurs took down the Heat in Game 5
by a score of 104-87. Forward Kawhi Leonard was fantastic in this matchup, notching 20 points and 10 rebounds. Leonard shot
an efficient 7 of 10 from the floor in this contest, and he also played excellent defense on LeBron James throughout the series.
Leonard did not play very well in the first two games of the NBA Finals, but he really came on in Games 3, 4 and 5. Leonard
was named NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, an impressive feat for a young player on a team filled with veterans.
really was a banner season for the Spurs, who posted the NBA's best record in the regular season before running through the
postseason and winning the NBA Title. This was Tim Duncan's fifth title with the organization, as it was for head coach Greg
Popovich as well. Duncan has simply defied the aging process like few players that we've seen in the past, especially for
a big man. Tony Parker was again a key cog for this machine, and the Spurs offense did run like a well-oiled machine. Manu
Ginobili may not have been great in the regular season, but he stepped up his game in the playoffs and made his impact felt
in a big way. Other players like Boris Diaw, Patty Mills, Danny Green and Tiago Splitter were integral parts of this year's
Spurs Update – June 9
The San Antonio Spurs are a single win away from capturing the NBA
Championship, as they've taken a 3-1 lead on the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. After letting Game 2 and a 2-0 lead in the
series slip from their fingers, the Spurs rebounded in Game 3 with one of the best halves of basketball ever seen. The Spurs
shots the lights out on Miami's home floor in the first half, finishing with 71 points at the break. After playing a bit passively
in the first two tilts in this NBA Finals, San Antonio forward Kawhi Leonard stepped up his game and posted the best performance
of his career with 29 points on 10 of 13 shooting. Leonard is seen by many in NBA circles as a rising star that is capable
of shouldering more of an offensive load, and his performance against the Heat certainly suggested that those people are correct.
Miami made a run in the third quarter, but the Spurs were able to take home the victory and take a 2-1 lead in the series.
knew they needed a big performance in Game 4, but the Spurs again proved to be just too much on both ends of the floor. San
Antonio has been brilliant on offense, with the kind of ball-movement and selfless basketball that has hoops coaches all over
the world swooning. Leonard again was huge in this contest, racking up 20 points and crashing the boards for 14 rebounds.
Leonard averaged 11 boards per game last year when these two teams matched up in the Finals, and surely Spurs fans were happy
to see him get aggressive on the glass. The Spurs now sit one win away from grasping that trophy that narrowly eluded them
last season, and they would certainly love to make it happen on the home court in Game 5.
Spurs Update –
The San Antonio Spurs have reached the NBA Finals for the second consecutive season, and for the second straight
year the Miami Heat await them in the final series of the NBA season. The Spurs were incredibly close to winning the championship
last season before the Heat triumphed in a seven-game series that will go down as one of the best in the history of the league.
San Antonio is determined not to let that happen again, but that is easier said than done. The Miami Heat have won the last
two NBA titles and have the best player in the world in LeBron James. The Spurs are 1-1 against King James in the NBA Finals,
though when they took him down he didn't have running mates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh flanking him. The Spurs will be looking
to slow down the Big Three and take home the title that barely eluded them last season.
Game 1 was a bit of a unique
contest, as the air conditioning malfunctioned at the AT&T Center and the players were forced to compete in 90 degree
heat. For most of the game the heat appeared to have more of an effect on the fans in attendance than anyone else, but in
the fourth quarter disaster struck the Heat when LeBron James had to be helped off the court due to leg cramps. Maybe it was
the heat and maybe it was not, but James left the game with Miami leading by two points. The Spurs saw their opening and took
over the game, eventually winning the game by a 15-point margin thanks to some huge shots from Danny Green down the stretch.
The Spurs may have gotten a little lucky in Game 1, but a win is a win and the team will head into Game 2 leading the series.
Spurs Update – May 5th
The San Antonio Spurs were able to land the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs
thanks to their posting the best record in the National Basketball Association during the regular season, but that does not
mean that they faced an easy first-round matchup. The Spurs drew the Dallas Mavericks, and the Mavs were able to take the
series back to San Antonio for Game 7. However, it quickly became apparent that the Spurs were not going to allow the Mavs
to pull off the upset. San Antonio put up 35 points in the first quarter and had nearly 70 by halftime. Tony Parker was unstoppable
in this contest, dropping 32 points in the game and getting to the free throw line with regularity. The Mavs proved to be
a tougher test than many expected, and it was their bench that really upped their level of play, but San Antonio moved on
to the second round, one step closer to their goal of winning the NBA Championship.
The Spurs are faced with the Portland
Trail Blazers in the second round of the postseason. The Blazers took down the Houston Rockets in the first round thanks to
some fantastic performances from their two star players, LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard. This Portland team is a young
squad, which the Spurs are surely looking to take advantage of. San Antonio came out with guns blazing against the Blazers
in Game 1, putting up more than 60 points by halftime. Parker was again magnificent in this contest, notching 33 points and
outplaying Lillard without question. Portland has a lot of talent and athleticism, but the Spurs could really put their backs
against the wall with a victory in Game 2.
Spurs Update – April 28th
The San Antonio Spurs experienced
a heartbreaking loss in the NBA Finals last season, and a lot of people thought that may have been their last shot at a title
in the Tim Duncan era of the franchise. The Spurs said, "Not so fast!" San Antonio notched the best record in the National
Basketball Association this season, earning them the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs. The Spurs received a first-round
matchup with the eighth-seeded Dallas Mavericks, who have put together a solid season in 2013-14 thus far. The Spurs were
able to take Game 1 of the series in a hard-fought battle that came down to the fourth quarter, but the Mavericks responded
by winning the next two games. San Antonio found themselves in unfamiliar territory, down in the first round of the postseason.
However, the Spurs responded in the fashion that we've become accustomed to seeing from them by winning Game 4 by grinding
out a 93-89 victory. Manu Ginobili has huge in this contest for San Antonio, racking up 23 points off the bench. Boris Diaw
also had a nice performance off the pine, helping the Spurs even the series with a huge victory.
With the series tied
at 2-2, Game 5 stood out as a swing game in this matchup. Again San Antonio came through when they needed it most, securing
the victory by a score of 109-103. Tony Parker played very well for San Antonio, despite being hobbled by an injury, notching
23 points in the game. Tiago Splitter, inserted into the starting lineup, put up 17 points and 12 boards. Tim Duncan also
added a double-double. The Mavericks are certainly not going to quit, though, and every game has been a close one, so the
Spurs need to do whatever they can to try and close out the series in Dallas in Game 6.
Spurs Update –
Week of April 21st
The San Antonio Spurs landed the number one seed in the Western Conference playoffs thanks to notching
the top record in the entire National Basketball Association, and have found themselves matched up with a familiar foe in
the Dallas Mavericks. These two teams have had some legendary battles in the postseason over the years, so fans certainly
were looking forward to seeing the action in 2014. San Antonio kicked off the series with a victory, though the Mavs gave
them a tough game until the Spurs squeaked out the win late in the contest. The ageless Tim Duncan was magnificent in this
game, scoring 27 points while shooting better than 50 percent from the field and adding eight rebounds. Duncan had himself
another good regular season in 2013-14 despite his advanced age, but he may have another gear now that it's playoff time.
Tony Parker added 21 points of his own, and it proved to be enough to take down Dallas in this one.
Game 2 was not the
same story, however, as the Mavericks defeated the Spurs by a staggering 21 points. While Mavs stars Dirk Nowitzki and Monta
Ellis got theirs, they were not the most efficient players on the court. Forward Shawn Marion was great for Dallas in this
game, racking up 18 points on 8 of 10 shooting. Devin Harris had himself a nice game off the bench, hitting sic of his nine
attempts from the floor on his way to 18 points, four rebounds and five assists. The Mavs have been getting solid contributions
from their role players throughout the season, and that has been a key to their success. The Spurs are going to have to buckle
down as they head to Dallas for a crucial set of games.
Spurs Update – Week of April 14th
Antonio Spurs have done it again. Leading up to this season there were the familiar rumblings about how this Spurs team was
getting too old to contend with some of the younger squads in the Western Conference, but this group has proved the doubters
wrong yet again by taking home the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs and the best record in the National Basketball
Association. The Spurs made it all the way to the NBA Finals last season and came about as close to winning the NBA Championship
as a club can possibly get without actually taking home the hardware. That obviously stung in a big way, but nobody was quite
sure how this team would respond in 2013-14. 60-plus wins, that's how they've responded. Tim Duncan is truly proving to be
an ageless wonder, putting up yet another big season despite being 37 years old. He averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds per
game this season while playing his usual stellar defense. Those averages might pale in comparison to those of his prime years,
but he has aged much more gracefully than many big men that have come before him and likely many that will come after.
Parker experienced an injury-laden season, but still managed to tough it out more often than not and excel on the court. He
is still one of the quickest players in the NBA, and he uses that attribute to get into the lane where one would think a man
of his size does not belong. Rising star Kawhi Leonard is still just a role player for this team, but he's getting better
and better and is truly the future of this franchise. The Spurs will have three tough series on their hands out West if they're
going to return to the NBA Finals this season.
Spurs Update – Week of April 7th
The San Antonio
Spurs have a firm hold on the top spot in the Western Conference standings, and look like they have a good shot at wrapping
up the top seed in the playoffs sometime soon. The regular season is winding down and the Spurs are playing some of their
best basketball of the season, and the timing could not be better. San Antonio made it all the way to the NBA Finals last
season despite some folks thinking their stars were too old to pull it off. Well Tim Duncan is having another good season
despite his advanced age, and the Spurs are flourishing and looking like the favorite out west yet again. The Spurs got a
nice win over the Golden State Warriors last week to kick things off. Golden State is battling for one of the final sports
in the Western Conference playoffs, but the Spurs did not help their cause on this night. Tony Parker led the team with 18
points in the game, but this was really an all-around effort that saw six San Antonio players score in double figures.
in the week the Spurs got another win over a playoff hopeful when they took down the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies are
going to have to finish strong in order to grab one of the last playoff spots in the Western Conference, but the Spurs tamed
them in this matchup. Kawhi Leonard was great in this contest, scoring 26 points while adding five assists. Leonard is a young
player with star potential, and he is capable of taking on more of an offensive load when necessary, though that is not often.
Manu Ginobili got hot off the bench, hitting eight of his 11 shots to the tune of 26 points.
Spurs Update –
Week of March 31st
The San Antonio Spurs ran the table in March, winning all of their games and taking control of the
top spot in the Western Conference standings. The Spurs are looking to return to the NBA Finals after just basely losing out
on the NBA Championship in heartbreaking fashion last season. This team is hitting its stride at the right time, which can
make all of the difference in the National Basketball Association. The Spurs got a nice pair of wins over the Denver Nuggets
last week, the first of which turned out to be a close game. Spurs big man was able to put the team over the top thanks to
a great game, as the Big Fundamental put up a phenomenal all-around line of 29 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, two blocks
and two steals. Duncan continues to defy the gaining process, as he remains one of the best big men in the league despite
his advanced age.
Later in the week the Spurs took down the New Orleans Pelicans. Manu Ginobili had a nice game off
the bench, hitting seven of his 10 shot attempts and finishing with 15 points; he also added five boards, four assists and
three steals. Ginobili may not be the player he once was, but he still remains a valuable contributor off the pine and could
always come up big in the postseason like he has many times in the past. The Pelicans were without young star Anthony Davis
in this game, so they had little chance to defeat the best team in the Western Conference. San Antonio will look to continue
their winning streak down the stretch of the regular season as they gear up for the playoffs. The Spurs are playing the best
ball in the league right now.
Spurs Update – Week of March 24th
The San Antonio Spurs sat atop the
Western Conference standings following last week after extending their winning streak to 13 games, avoiding a single loss
thus far in the month of March. The Spurs kicked the week off by taking down the Los Angeles Lakers. Youngster Kawhi Leonard
had himself a fantastic game against LA, posting 22 points, and 10 rebounds on 8 of 12 shooting while avoiding a single turnover.
Tim Duncan also played very well in this game, putting up 12 points, 16 rebounds and six assists. Duncan has been as reliable
as ever this season, and is showing very few signs of slowing down in his advanced age. Tony Parker added 25 points in the
game to give the Spurs a victory, despite a solid game from Pau Gasol (22 points, 10 rebounds and six assists).
in the week the Spurs were able to defeat the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors have one of the most electric offensive
teams in the league, and that attack starts with point guard Steph Curry. Curry was able to drop 20 points while adding six
rebounds and six assists in this contest, but the Spurs took a 10-point lead in the first quarter and never really relented.
San Antonio was without Duncan in this game, but Tiago Splitter filled in admirable in the middle with 17 points and 14 rebounds.
Splitter got himself a solid contract in the offseason, though the team still doesn't need him for big minutes on most nights.
However, whenever Duncan does retire Splitter figures to be a big part of the team. Until then, he provides a solid presence
off the bench and a viable starting big man in the case of an injury to Duncan. The Spurs will look to continue their great
play of late.
Spurs Update – Week of March 17th
The San Antonio Spurs had a banner week last week,
winning all four of their games and taking control of the top seed in the Western Conference. The Spurs kicked off the week
with a victory over the Chicago Bulls, a team playing very good basketball right now. While the Bulls have lost two of their
best players to injury and trade this season, this Chicago team refuses to quit. Center Joakim Noah has been playing some
fantastic hoops lately, playing a point center kind of role for the Bulls. Noah was able to rack up 13 points, eight rebounds
and seven assists against the Spurs, but it was not enough for Chicago to earn the victory. Guard Manu Ginobili caught fire
off the bench in this contest, scoring 22 points off the pine thanks to nine of 11 shooting (four of five from three). Tony
Parker played well for San Antonio as well, notching 20 points and nine assists.
Later in the week the Spurs were able
to take down the Portland Trail Blazers, a team that has continued to play well despite not being expected to contend for
a playoff spot coming into the season. No one player stood out in a huge way for the Spurs in this one, but Patty Mills did
lead the team in scoring by notching 15 off the bench. Both Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter notched double-doubles, making an
impression on the interior in this game. This was a solid performance from Splitter, who was awarded with a nice contract
in the offseason but is not having a great year. Damian Lillard scored 23 points for Portland in this one, but it was not
enough to take down this veteran San Antonio team.
Spurs Update – Week of March 10
The San Antonio
Spurs continued their strong play of late last week, especially when they took down the Miami Heat in San Antonio. The Heat
are the reigning NBA Champions and have arguably the best player on the planet in LeBron James, but the Spurs were able to
force James into a rough shooting night (6 of 18). James is having an incredibly efficient season, so this defensive effort
by San Antonio is even more impressive. Forward Kawhi Leonard has to be given some of the credit, as he is proving to be a
defensive ace at a young age. Longtime Spurs star Tim Duncan had a fantastic night, hitting nine of his 13 shots from the
floor in racking up 22 points and 11 boards. Tony Parker added 17 points of his own, and Boris Diaw continued his strong play
with 16 points, eight rebounds and five assists.
Later in the week the Spurs took on the Orlando Magic, a team without
a good record but one with plenty of young talent that can explode on any given night. San Antonio did not play particularly
good defense in this game, allowing 112 points, but the Spurs were able to drop 121 points of their own. Parker went off in
this one, scoring 30 points. Parker has experienced some injuries this season, and it's clear that the Spurs are one of the
top teams in the league when he is in the starting lineup. Manu Ginobili, who is not quite the player he once was, turned
back the clock and dropped 24 points off the bench, also adding five assists. Orlando got 23 points from Tobias Harris off
the pine, but the Spurs were able to take down the win. San Antonio will continue to chase the top record in the Western Conference.
Spurs Update – Week of March 3rd
The San Antonio Spurs continued their solid play as of late by winning
all three of their contests last week. The Spurs kicked off the week with a match-up against the Charlotte Bobcats, a club
that has been playing well this season and is looking a potentially making the postseason for the just the second time in
franchise history. The Sours did a decent job of containing Charlotte big man Al Jefferson, the main reason that the Bobcats
are in the playoff mix in the Eastern Conference this season. Jefferson is one of the craftier post scorers in the NBA, and
he's difficult to handle in the paint. The Spurs held Big Al to 20 points in this contest, avoiding sending him to the free
throw line even once. The Bobcats got a solid game off the bench from former Spur Gary Neal, but it was not enough to outdo
San Antonio in this one. Tim Duncan had himself a fantastic game for the Spurs in this one, notching 17 points, 16 rebounds
and six assists. Duncan continues to stave off Father Time as he puts together yet another impressive season for the Spurs.
Spurs finished out the week on Sunday against the Dallas Mavericks, a division rival. Dallas has been playing well as of late,
but the Spurs would not let this game get away. San Antonio saw Tony Parker return from injury in this game, and his impact
on the court was felt immediately. Parker put up 22 points to go with seven assists to just a single turnover in the contest.
Parker got some help from Kawhi Leonard, also recently back from injury, as the young forward contributed across the board
as he is known to do. With Parker and Leonard back in the lineup, the Spurs are at full strength, and it looks like they're
yet again one of the best teams in the Western Conference.
Spurs Update – Week of February 24th
San Antonio Spurs are looking like one of the best teams in the Western Conference yet again, and fans of the team are enjoying
another season of winning basketball. The Spurs got some big victories last week against some top teams, the first of which
came against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Spurs went into the Staples Center on February 18th and came out with a 113-103
victory despite point guard Tony Parker being sidelined with an injury. The Spurs should be without their star guard for a
while, but they may have a solid replacement for his production in Patty Mills. Mills shined against Los Angeles in this contest,
coming off the bench to score 25 points while chipping in five rebounds and five assists. Big man Tim Duncan played very well
against the young, athletic bigs of Los Angeles, chipping in 19 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists. Blake Griffin scored
35 for the Clips, but the Spurs prevailed nonetheless.
The following night the Spurs traveled north to Portland where
they took on the Trail Blazers in the Rose Garden. Portland has been a real surprise in the Western Conference this season,
but they were without forward LaMarcus Aldridge in this contest. Portland point guard Damian Lillard stepped up his game in
Aldridge's absence, scoring 31 points in the game. However, Mills came up big yet again in Parker's absence, scoring 29 points
of his own. Marco Belinelli continued his hot shooting this season with 20 points, hitting four of six shots from downtown.
The Spurs are proving that they're a well-oiled machine no matter what players miss time. And great news for Spurs fans, as
Kawhi Leonard should be back in the lineup in the very near future. That will give the team a big boost.
Update – Week of February 17th
The San Antonio Spurs have a solid hold on one of the top spots in the Western
Conference standings, but this team is going to hang tough as point guard Tony Parker is expected to miss a significant chunk
of time due to injury. The team will be looking to Patty Mills and Cory Joseph to help shoulder the load in Parker's absence.
Normally this may seem like a daunting task for either of these young players, but Mills has shown some serious game as of
late. Mills has been a highly-touted prospect out of Australia for years, but he has bounced around the National Basketball
Association for several seasons trying to make his mark on the league. Leave it up to the Spurs to find yet another diamond
in the rough, as that is exactly what Mills has looked like over the past month or so of the season.
The Spurs won their
last game before the All-Star break, taking down the Boston Celtics in Boston. Without Parker, the team saw veteran big man
Tim Duncan step up his game and post 25 points and nine boards. Duncan has been on quite the tear as of late as he continues
to defy the aging process like few seven-footers that we've seen throughout the history of the NBA. There has been speculation
as of late about 2013-14 being Duncan's final season on the court, but he was quick to squash those rumors, saying that he
has not really thought about it. Duncan has been a part of the Spurs organization for his entire career, ever since being
the first overall pick in the NBA draft back in 1997. It's hard to imagine the Spurs without the Big Fundamental, and fans
are surely hoping to see Duncan suit up for at least one more season following this year.
Spurs Update –
Week of February 10th
The San Antonio Spurs have a hold on one of the top records in the Western Conference as they
look to return to the NBA Finals this season. San Antonio is coming off a solid week in which they won three of their four
games. The Spurs kicked of the week with a victory over the Sacramento Kings. The legendary Tim Duncan continues to defy the
aging process, and he's playing his best ball of the season right now. Duncan totaled 23 points, 17 rebounds and five assists
against Sacramento, looking like a much younger man. Tony Parker added 19 points of his own as he gets back into form coming
off an injury. San Antonio also got 15 points from Patty Mills, who has been playing the best basketball of his career as
of late. The Aussie has always shown a lot of promise, and the Spurs always seem to sign these types of players that blossom
in the nurturing environment of the San Antonio organization. The Kings fought hard in this contest, and point guard Isaiah
Thomas dropped 26 points to continue his breakout season, but the Spurs prevailed by a count of 95-93 when they held Sacramento
to 15 points in the fourth quarter.
The Spurs needed a fourth quarter comeback later in the week to take down a much-improved
Charlotte Bobcats squad. With Parker showing signs of rust after returning from an injury recently, backup Patty Mills took
the reins of the offense and rained down baskets to the tune of 32 points. He also added seven boards and four assists to
lead the Spurs to a big victory on the road. The Bobcats are not the pushovers that they have been in the past, as management
is committed to seeing the team make the postseason in 2013-14. San Antonio can be proud of this victory as they look forward.
The San Antonio Spurs - Schedule in 2013-14
The San Antonio Spurs are ready to hit the court in 2013-14 to take
on all comers that dare step into their arena and try to walk away with a victory. The Spurs are one of the best teams in
the Western Conference thanks to a roster built around some quality veteran players that have been a part of the organization
for many years. The Spurs are coming off a 2012-13 season in which they finished atop the Southwest Division of the Western
Conference and earned the second seed in the playoffs. The Spurs ran the gauntlet of the West and reached the NBA Finals,
coming within just a few seconds of winning the NBA Championship. It isn't easy to get that close to the title and not taste
it, and the Spurs are a team motivated not to allow that to occur twice. With the trio of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu
Ginobili all back with the team for another season the Spurs should be in position to make another run at the NBA Finals.
The Spurs have some tough competition in the Southwest Division this season, but they're always up to the task of besting
quality foes. San Antonio's home schedule is stacked with top teams this season, so the team will be looking to see their
fans show up en masse for all the biggest home contests of 2013-14. It should be yet another fantastic season of San Antonio
Spurs hoops this season.
The Spurs will be keeping their eye on division rival Houston this season, as the Rockets could
pose a threat to San Antonio's reign over the Southwest Division. The Rockets landed center Dwight Howard in the off-season
to strengthen an already good team. Howard is one of the top defensive players in the National Basketball Association, the
kind of impact player that can totally alter an opponent's game plan. The Rockets also have one of the premier shooting guards
in the NBA in James Harden. Harden showed that he is capable of being a number one option in an offense during his first season
in Houston, and he's certainly looking to follow up his successful 2012-13 campaign with another great year. With Howard and
Harden teamed up in Houston, flanked by the vastly underrated Chandler Parsons, the Rockets should be a formidable opponent
for San Antonio in the division this season. The Spurs will have all of their match-ups with the Rockets circled on their
calendar this season, and so should any Spurs fan.
Another club that the Spurs will surely be looking forward to facing
is the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies finished in second place in the Southwest Division last season and look to be a tough
team again in 2013-14. The Grizzlies have arguably the best big man tandem in the NBA in Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. Gasol
is particular has been steadily improving over the past few seasons and is now one of the top centers in the league. Gasol
and Randolph can both score on the block, and some teams don't even have on player that can do that, so it really is a luxury.
With point guard Mike Conley emerging as a better player each and every season, the Grizzlies could be a threat to the Spurs
in the division standings this season. Each time the Grizzlies head to San Antonio this season could mean a lot in the standings
when it comes down to the end of the season.
The San Antonio Spurs are a team that plays professional
basketball in the National Basketball Association. The Spurs play in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference, where
they battle for the division title with the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies and New Orleans Pelicans.
The Spurs are again relying heavily on their core of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. This trio has been a mainstay
of the Spurs organization for years now and has netted the franchise multiple NBA titles. While they're getting up there in
age a bit, these three players are fresh off leading the team to the NBA Finals last season, so they're certainly not out
of gas yet. The Spurs also have an emerging young player with star potential in Kawhi Leonard, who figures to be a player
to build around going forward. For now Leonard is a nice role player that can lock down opposing players on defense. The Spurs
figure to be a top team in the West yet again this season.
The San Antonio Spurs are sure
to be involved in some great games at home this season, and fans will pack into the AT&T Center to see the action unfold
live and in person. When you're there in the stands you're going to be amazed at the skills of these players, and you'll understand
why so many fans head to Spurs home games on a regular basis.
What college did current San Antonio
Spurs big man Tim Duncan attend?
The answer is Wake Forest, where Duncan played for four years despite being one of
the top prospects on NBA radars for multiple years before he entered the league.
The San Antonio
Spurs are a professional basketball team that is a part of the National Basketball Association, a league that features the
best of the best in the world of basketball. The Spurs organization was founded in 1967 as a member of the American Basketball
Association and joined the NBA in 1976. They were originally known as the Dallas Chaparrals and underwent several name changes
before settling on the San Antonio Spurs in 1973. The Spurs have had two of the best big men to ever play the game in David
Robinson and Tim Duncan. The franchise has been to the NBA Finals five times and won four NBA Championships.
The National Basketball Association seems to bring out the best in hoops fans, and fans of the San Antonio Spurs
are some of the most passionate basketball enthusiasts that you'll ever come across. The Spurs are the only major sports team
in the city of San Antonio, so they get all the attention and love from the sports fans in the area.
