  Kawhi Leonard doesn’t pull up from 30 feet or leap over giants at the rim. His game is a steadier beast. His baskets usually come within the flow of the offense. His box score usually stands out more than his highlights. But a lack of Vines doesn’t make Leonard any less effective or instrumental in the 20-5 Spurs‘ success. As has often …

The Kobe Bryant farewell tour continued as his next stop was San Antonio to the take on the Spurs.

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 …

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.

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …
