Kyrie Irving Unleashes All Hell In The Perfect Meaningless Game

San Antonio isn't usually a place for mid-March NBA thrills. Oh, the latter-day Spurs remain perfectly capable of playing the sort of gyroscoping, pinball-passing game pretty enough to goose Red Auerbach's carcass from 6 to 12, but it's very a long season and a very old team and while you can usually count on them for… » 3/13/15 10:21am 3/13/15 10:21am

Maybe Tony Parker And The Spurs Aren't Dead Yet

We've all looked foolish for the Is the sun finally setting on San Antonio? thing so many years in a row now that there's an invisible phone book-sized volume of hedges and mealymouthed qualifications and built-in escape routes affixed to the front of each new iteration of it. You just nod in its direction, at this… » 3/09/15 4:17pm 3/09/15 4:17pm

Rare Video Of Tony Parker And Boris Diaw Training Together As Teens

Here's some very cool, never-before-seen (by me) footage of Tony Parker and Boris Diaw balling together at Paris training center INSEP in 1999, when both were just 17 years old. » 6/20/14 3:54pm 6/20/14 3:54pm

How Serious Is Tony Parker's Back Injury?

Tonight, Tony Parker will likely miss his third straight game with a back injury, and more than a few assume that Parker's "injury" is really just a cover for Gregg Popovich to rest his star before the playoffs. The injury, tweeted April 7th from the Spurs' official account as "a sprained facet joint, left side,"… » 4/11/14 1:15pm 4/11/14 1:15pm

Why Are So Many Athletes Posing For Pictures With A Holocaust Denier?

San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker's fascism problem started years ago, but it didn't catch up to him until a week ago, on another continent, in another sport. » 1/03/14 4:26pm 1/03/14 4:26pm

Miami's Big Three Bests San Antonio's Big One-And-Three-Quarters

For much of the playoffs the question had been whether LeBron James could just get some help from his teammates. By the time Game 3 of the Finals rolled around, it began to look like LeBron was fading. But in Game 4, LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh finally put a game together in the playoffs to live up to the "Big… » 6/14/13 1:49am 6/14/13 1:49am

No One Notices The Spurs Because No One Notices San Antonio

Here's a working barstool-grade theory as to why, during its dynastic run to four (perhaps soon five) titles since 1999, America still embraces the San Antonio Spurs with a yawn and a why are you still here? squint. This phenomenon has flustered if not baffled sports cognoscenti for years. But they play pure,… » 6/08/13 4:11pm 6/08/13 4:11pm

Tony Parker Lifted The Spurs Over The Heat With This Shot

The San Antonio Spurs just upset the Miami Heat in game one of the NBA Finals, 92-88. There's a lot to cover, but for now, let's just watch this over and over and over again. » 6/06/13 11:45pm 6/06/13 11:45pm

Same Faces, Same Result: The Spurs Are Back In The Finals

The Spurs get the "boring" label because basketball is supposed to be hard. As San Antonio heads to its fifth finals since 1999, its fourth with its multinational power trio intact, you wonder if they've made some cosmic bargain, or discovered a real-life cheat code, because the alternative—that they're just this… » 5/28/13 9:29am 5/28/13 9:29am

The Spurs May Finally Be Too Old For This Shit

It's hard to imagine the Spurs getting old. Maybe it's because they've already spent so many years as the elder statesmen of the Western Conference that we just expect them to keep doing what they do forever—consistently outplaying and outsmarting younger teams while staring down the perils of age but never quite… » 5/13/13 2:32pm 5/13/13 2:32pm

That Warriors-Spurs Game Was Bonkers

Manu Ginobili hit the game-winning shot with 1.2 seconds left in double-overtime to put a bow on an absolutely incredible game. With less than four minutes left in regulation Klay Thompson fouled out with the Warriors up 104-88. Chris Webber said something along the lines of "luckily, they don't need him anymore." » 5/07/13 1:28am 5/07/13 1:28am

Tony Parker Got Everyone To Bite On A Fake Free Throw

The most effective fake is the one when everyone's expecting you to shoot. Considering Tony Parker was at the foul line, this was probably the single most effective shot fake ever pulled off. » 12/18/12 12:30pm 12/18/12 12:30pm

Tony Parker Celebrated His First Triple-Double With A Customized Dessert

Last night, Tony Parker recorded the first triple-double of his career, putting up an impressive stat line of 27-12-12 against the Houston Rockets. Good job, Tony! » 12/11/12 3:15pm 12/11/12 3:15pm

Tim Duncan And Tony Parker Mock-Executed Their Referee Nemesis Joey…

From what we can tell, this photo only started making the rounds yesterday, even though the Spurs night out on Halloween had been well-documented otherwise. These are the same costumes Tim Duncan and Tony Parker wore then—Duncan as the Punisher, because of course he'd pick a relatively obscure comic book antihero as… » 12/01/12 9:45am 12/01/12 9:45am

Tony Parker Crossover Leaves Raymond Felton Confused

In fairness to Felton, it looks like he was anticipating the screen from Tim Duncan, and that he was trying to avoid it. Felton eventually figured out where Parker was going about an hour later, but the Knicks still won. They're now 6-and-fucking-0. » 11/16/12 10:45am 11/16/12 10:45am
