Who Spurs fans should cheer for in The Finals

When your team has been eliminated, it doesn’t mean that the season has to end. Regardless of the sport, whenever “your team” is not in the finals, a fan has several choices. First, the fan can decide that he doesn’t care about who wins, and not even pay attention to what happens after his team is eliminated. In my view, …

Kyle Anderson 2016-17 season review: Still buffering

Anderson’s production stagnated in year three, but he remains a deceptively effective, if underused, player. I’m convinced there’s a small demonination of Spurs fans that remains irrationally confident in Kyle Anderson’s potential. They note the awareness; the versatility; the drive to improve every possession on the margins. They shirk the importance of sheer explosiveness, even in today’s faster-paced game, and …

David Lee 2016-17 season review: The Spurs’ supercharged super sub

The former All-Star carved out an important role in the Spurs’ fluid frontcourt rotation. David Lee joined the Spurs last summer with a résumé that included two All-Star selections, an All-NBA nod, and one absurd 37-20-10 triple double. He was by most accounts a high-character guy, helping shore up a frontcourt that had just been fundamentally rocked in the wake …

Tony Parker says he will come back stronger

He won’t return until 2018, but says it’ll be worth the wait It would have been tough to beat a historically good Golden State Warriors team in the Western Conference Finals anyway, but maybe the Spurs might have had a better chance with Tony Parker on the team. The Frenchman ruptured his quadriceps in Game 2 of the West Semis …

LaMarcus Aldridge entered his second Spurs season through a haze of muted trade rumors and finished it under a storm of spirited jeers. In between he dealt with a heart arrhythmia and knee issues, while being the second-best player …
