Playoffs preview: 2) Heat vs. 7) Bobcats

Can't we just settle this with a three-point contest between Wade and MKG?

Playoff predictions: Spurs vs. Mavericks

The Spurs earned home court advantage throughout the playoffs, and their efforts are rewarded in the first round as they get to play ... a 49-win Mavericks team.

Playoff predictions: Rockets vs. Blazers

Otherwise known as "The series where Charles Barkley will pick the winner to beat the Spurs."

Playoff predictions: Clippers vs. Warriors

Even with Frankie Muniz, Billy Crystal and Jessica Alba in attendance, somehow the worst actors will be on the floor.

Playoff predictions: Bulls v. Wizards

I don't know what will happen in this series but I do know that I want no part of a potential Bulls-Pacers match-up.

Playoff predictions: Pacers v. Hawks

A playoff series for those of you who miss the NCAA tournament. (Note: I do not miss the NCAA tournament.)

Playoff predictions: Thunder vs. Grizzlies

Hey, you know what would be a cool idea? If the Grizzlies brought out a real grizzly bear out on the court to get the fans excited. I mean, what's the worst that could happen?

Playoff preview: Raptors v. Nets

We need one Garnett skirmish with "Psycho T" just to appease all the Toronto fans bemoaning the fact that the pathetic Maple Leafs couldn't even make the playoffs.

Regular season grades for the Spurs: Part 2

This one covers Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Cory Joseph, Patty Mills and Tiago Splitter.

Regular season grades for the Spurs: Part 1

Handing out individual grades for each of the Spurs in alphabetical order.


Erler and Phil Naessens chat about Pop and the COY

Ironically the part of the schedule where Pop probably distanced himself from the competition for the Coach of the Year award was when he had to do the least.

Rehash: Spurs sit three starters & lose to Rockets

I don't care what anyone says, the Rockets starters are definitely better than the Spurs third-stringers.

A fix to the NBA's scheduling issues

Even in a league where everyone plays everyone, there's a way to tighten up the competitive balance and ensure that big games between marquee clubs are more balanced from a fatigue standpoint. All it takes is a little creative cribbing from the NFL.

Rehash: Spurs, Duncan bend but don't break

Can we forfeit the next two games?

One stat to rule them all

Is it possible to develop a quick and dirty solution that will solve statistical disputes?

Rehash: Spurs snooze through loss at Minnesota

In retrospect, they should've just sent those Triqui kids from Mexico to play in their place, if for no other reason than to show J.J. Barea how annoying he is.

Erler Chats with Phil Naessens about Leonard, OKC

Somehow I'm the one that winds up defending Tony Parker? How did we get here?

RPM = Really Problematic Metric

ESPN has a new basketball stat. The stat loves Manu Ginobili. Michael Erler is not a fan of this stat. Does not compute.

Lineups played a huge part in loss to Thunder

The Spurs are gonna be in huge trouble when they have to play at Oklahoma City for their fifth game in seven nights in the playoffs.

Pop needs to sit everyone against OKC

I give you four good reasons why, when the average layman can probably only come up with like three. That's good value for you.

Spurs rout free-falling Pacers, win 18th straight

Congratulations to the Indiana Pacers for their championship of the 2013 portion of the 2013-14 regular season. Too bad the season spans two calendar years.

Rehash: Spurs dismantle Nuggets in rematch

Another classic game of two halves. In the opening half the Spurs were the far superior team and raced out a 19 point lead. In the second half they were slightly less superior and only outscored the Nuggets by 12. When will they learn?

Rehash: Spurs survive Nugget rally, lose Green

In a tale of two halves, the Spurs spent the first twenty-four minutes building, and the second twenty-four losing/preserving. In retrospect, we should've all flipped on the Indy-Miami game at halftime.

Erler chats with Phil Naessens about failure

Would you consider this season a failure without a trophy? What chances would you give the Spurs if an unfathomable injury happened to Tim Duncan? What team is the ideal first round opponent? Who is Kerry Donovan? Is he a running back?

Judgment Daye coming for newest Spur

Austin Daye still has a long way to go before he finds his way into any kind of consistent rotation spot, but last night was a good start. Will he do what's necessary to become a player Pop can rely on?

Spurs-Warriors thoughts from Bay Area traitor

10 thoughts on the Spurs and 5 for the Warriors. In addition, Pop hates Bay Area fans.
