Media, Sports and Spurs
We’re not buying this attempt to rehabilitate Kawhi’s reputation by dumping on PATFO.
On the court, the Spurs have made their made their mark. They've also produced some unforgettable moments off the court too, in the form of hilarious -- and slightly questionable -- commercials.
You're free to disagree with Bill Simmons about anything (and particularly the Spurs) but realize that when it comes to Tiago Splitter, going against Simmons means going against Pop.
George Karl dropped a little bomb last week about Tim Duncan calling it a career after this year. But with Duncan playing so well--and saying it's not true--what would it take for him to hang them up instead of playing the last year of his contract?
I've been called an ADDICT when it comes to social media, and I won't deny it. So this week, I put down my phone and closed my computer to experience the NBA Finals matchup in the strangest way these days - with ONLY the television on.
Whether or not the Spurs are to blame for the lack of media coverage during the NBA season, the finger rightfully gets pointed at the media in their "since they are winning, I guess we should pay attention to them" coverage during the playoffs.
There's a reason why you get so absorbed with your teams, why you memorize stats for specific players & why your world often seems to revolve around sports, & sites like Twitter reinforce that fanaticism in ways that make a virtual world very real.
The Spurs don't have players that revel in controversy or over-commercialize themselves, seeking every endorsement and sponsorship available. The team just plays basketball, and over the course of the last 15 years they've played better anyone else.
