Baynes, Daye and unrealistic expectations

While it's fun to dream of giant leaps forward for the players on the fringes of the Spurs' roster, that's not always in the cards. But that doesn't mean that there's no value in what a good deep bench guy can provide.

Austin Daye is becoming a Spur

The pivot from being The Man to a simple bit player scratching for playing time has to be jarring for the thousands of Austin Dayes that have passed through the NBA over the decades.

PATFO's decision to re-sign Splitter is paying off

A perennially undervalued performer, Tiago Splitter, symbolizes the value of consistency and continuity in the Spurs' remarkably successful system.

Yes, San Antonio, America Hates Your Spurs

Perhaps a bit hyperbolic, but there are slivers of truth in the statement. The joy in seeing success's downfall is inherent in our nature and explains why much of America would prefer for the Spurs to just go away.

15 years of 50-wins: A celebration

50 is an arbitrary number and it doesn't mean much to a franchise that only really cares about championships. Even so, 15 years is wholly remarkable and we should take a minute to appreciate just what it represents about our team.

Closing in on the light at the end of the tunnel

The injuries to key players have hurt the Spurs significantly. But it's very possible the biggest struggles are in the rear-view mirror

Parker's use of the quenelle gesture & apology

Tony Parker is one of the French athletes who's having to explain their association with the comic Dieudonné, and their use of the gesture he invented.

Diaw's cool is crazy; his crazy is cool

I'm going to be honest: the metamorphosis of Boris Diaw is about the funniest thing I've ever seen. Since joining the Spurs, Boris Diaw has reinvented himself more than LeBron James has, and has readjusted his game just as successfully as LeBron.

When you watch the Spurs, what do you see?

The Spurs Way. The Program. The Machine. Corporate Knowledge. All have been used to describe the mentality inside the San Antonio Spurs organization. But in the end it all boils down to one question.
