LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The San Antonio Spurs may not boast the NBA's flashiest roster but the team have epitomized consistency for well over a decade.
The Spurs have made the NBA postseason in 16 consecutive years, an impressive stretch that includes four league titles. And since the arrival of the two future hall-of-famers in head coach Gregg Popovich and forward Tim Duncan, San Antonio have been basketball's model of sustained success.
This season almost began with an early tumble. A tumultuous beginning to the second quarter of a recent game had the Spurs in a 31-18 hole to a Los Angeles Lakers team playing without injured Kobe Bryant.
NO D, NO RING!!!!
With 26 points on 4 of 4 shots from distance in only 20 minutes of PT. Efficient eviceration.
Wolves' fan: ginobili vs. the wolves is like he's just kind of laughing to himself all game...kind of like he thinks it's cute that they're trying to play basketball.
Thats our boys! So many good articles about this team, they will truly be missed when they are gone! This is a great era for us fans so we need to continue to enjoy it.
Win or lose this is a game -
You could let it pick your brain for weeks and months, just replay it over and over, won't do you any good at all. When someone loses a loved one and they do that it only brings forth anguish. I feel acceptance is sometimes the key, it happened, now you have to react to it. Giving up is not an option.
"It's basketball. Play basketball, understand the game,"
"For the most part, everybody has the freedom to do whatever they want offensively,"
"Defense gets you the minutes to get on the floor."
wondering if blair ever get this message...
The Spurs won because of Tim Duncan, a guy I could never break. I could talk trash to Patrick Ewing, get in David Robinson’s face, get a rise out of Alonzo Mourning, but when I went at Tim he’d look at me like he was bored and then say, “Hey, Shaq, watch this shot right here off the glass.” Shaquille O'Neal on Tim duncan.
