For reasons both on the court and off, Kobe Bryant has been one of the least sympathetic figures in the basketball world for nearly 20 years. More than a human being or even a basketball player, he’s been an absolute (or just an absolute a-hole if you ask Smush Parker) — an imperfect, unflinching brand that divided opinions like few …

Danny Green’s Shooting Slump Is Hard To Watch.

Martin M Dominguez Spurs Blog 0 Comments

There is no question that the Spurs Danny Green is off to a rocky start this season. A career 41-percent 3-point shooter, this seasons start, not so good. Over his last five games, Green is 7-of-29 from the field–including 3-of-19 from the 3-point line. Green and the rest of the San Antonio Spurs came out sluggish against the Toronto Raptors on …

Finding Trends: Spurs Doing It With Defense.

Repetitiveness is sort of the theme once we hit this time of the NBA season. The luster of a shiny new basketball year has been worn away by road back-to-backs and stretches of three games in four nights. We are still a few weeks away from the greatness of NBA Christmas Day (the first day that the average basketball fan actually tunes into …

Spurs flying under the radar, just like they like it.

The Golden State Warriors may be the reigning champions, but the San Antonio Spurs are still the gold standard. At least that’s how Bob Myers sees it. Never mind that he’s the Warriors general manager, the 40-year-old who has played such a significant part in getting a once-fledgling franchise to the NBA’s mountaintop. Or that his team is in the midst of …

Tim Duncan vs. Kevin Garnett, Two for the Ages.

Martin M Dominguez Spurs Blog 0 Comments

Considering that this is the year that the NBA will say goodbye to one of the greatest guards of all time in Kobe Bryant, Spurs fans should look to Tim Duncan for inspiration on aging in the NBA. The word ‘graceful’ comes to mind. ‘Lucky’ is another, and even ‘prepared’ can describe the forward’s ability to predictably produce for San …

With Leonard in but ailing, Spurs can’t handle Raptors.

TORONTO – If Kawhi Leonard had to do it over again, he probably would have had the chicken. Or maybe a nice salad. Or some kind of fish. Two days after consuming the Cheese Steak Sandwich of Death in Philadelphia, the Spurs’ leading scorer was back on the floor Wednesday night at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. But not really. With Leonard floating through three …

San Antonio Spurs make seamless transition from past to present and pose the biggest threat to Golden State Warriors.

The San Antonio Spurs loved Cory Joseph. Well, maybe not right away. In the first year after the Spurs drafted Joseph late in the first round of the 2011 Draft, Manu Ginobili had trouble gauging his potential. He could not figure out what type of player he could possibly become. And then Joseph requested to spend time with the Spurs’ D-League …

Spurs miss Joseph, and the feeling is mutual.

TORONTO — Cory Joseph would love to still be a Spur. The Spurs would love to still have him on the roster. Sometimes, these things don’t work out. When staying in San Antonio became impossible for Joseph last summer — when he became a collateral loss to the Spurs’ pursuit of LaMarcus Aldridge — he did the next best thing. The four-year, …

Danny Green is still important to the Spurs.

I’ve been somewhat heavy into the NBA blogosphere for about 4 years now. In that time, I’ve read, gained basketball knowledge from, and been inspired by countless amazing pieces. One of my absolute favorite blog pieces, which I come back to every couple months to read, is a profile of Danny Green. This profile was written in April of 2012, at …

Raptors take a bite out of the Spurs in a tough loss 94-97.

The San Antonio Spurs just came off a 51 point win against the 76ers just two days ago. So how did the invincible Spurs do in the Jurassic Park of the Toronto Raptors? The Spurs stared the game with sloppy play and could not buy a shot as they quickly fell behind the hot shooting Raptors.  The Toronto Raptors lead …

Spurs Head North To Face Raptors.

The San Antonio Spurs have won eight of their last nine meetings against the Toronto Raptors. They look to continue their success Wednesday. Tim Duncan over the last three-matchups is averaging 12.3 rebounds. Offensively he is averaging 11.0 points while shooting 29 percent. These two last met back on March 10th. Kawhi Leonard delivered with an impressive stat line–24 points, 11 …

The Spurs offense is on the path to greatness.

Martin M Dominguez Spurs Blog 0 Comments

After a slow start, San Antonio’s new-look offense is beginning to find its rhythm. On a per-possession basis, it’s one of the most efficient in the NBA, top-two in the league in field-goal percentage and assist-to-turnover ratio, averaging 106.3 points over their four-game winning streak. The scary part, though, is that this is an 18-4 team — with the league’s second-best …

Spurs’ Green still searching for old touch.

Martin M Dominguez Spurs Blog 0 Comments

TORONTO — The structured portion of the Spurs’ morning shootaround was over, and still guard Danny Green lingered to get in extra shots. Might this have been a sign Green is close to breaking out of the shooting funk that has plagued the start of his seventh NBA season? Alas, Green’s shootaround shooting clinic in New Orleans last month offered …
