Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge to DeMar DeRozan — ‘You’re going to be here a long time, I’ve only got a couple of years left’

If you stopped watching the NBA during the summer of 2016, you probably would not even recognize the San Antonio Spurs anymore. Gone are Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, with Duncan and Ginobili riding off into retirement and Parker signing with the Charlotte Hornets this past offseason. Oh, and Kawhi Leonard? He’s gone, […] The post Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge to DeMar DeRozan — ‘You’re going to be here a long time, I’ve only got a couple of years left’ appeared first on ClutchPoints.

The Mid Three plan on creating their own Spurs legacy

The Mid Three plan on creating their own Spurs legacy

Aldridge, Gay and DeRozan want to be more than than just the core that kept the Spurs competitive between eras. All Spurs fans should know what the ”Mid Three” refers to by now. For anyone who doesn’t, it’s the trio of LaMarcus Aldridge, Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan, but why they’re called that may depend on who you ask. To some, it’s because they are the ultimate NBA trio of mid-range shooters, playing a throwback style of offense that seems out of place in today’s NBA but is effective and hard to defend nonetheless. To others, that name might simply be a reference to three...

DeMar DeRozan still pursuing happiness with Spurs

DeMar DeRozan still pursuing happiness with Spurs

DeMar DeRozan was a staple of the Toronto Raptors franchise for years. However, the four-time All-Star was traded to the San Antonio Spurs prior to the start of this season. Being dealt to a new team is tough for most players (and their families). The same can be said for DeRozan, who was admittedly displeased […] The post DeMar DeRozan still pursuing happiness with Spurs appeared first on ClutchPoints.

The July 18 trade between the San Antonio Spurs and the Toronto Raptors that brought DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl to the Lonestar state and sent Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green across the northern border feels like forever ago. In terms of NBA news and drama, that’s because it was forever ago.

Introducing LaMarcus Aldridge’s All-Star Emoji

The NBA has been doing this for the past three ASGs, and this season’s is seriously San Antonio. As many of us are looking forward with palpable relief to the All-Star break, it’s important to reflect on the efforts our Spurs stalwarts. Though DeMar DeRozan has faded somewhat from a sizzling start and Derrick White continues to rehabilitate back in San Antonio, the Spurs have ridden the toughness and consistency of LaMarcus Aldridge for a second consecutive season to playoff contention. Today, @NBAAllStar released its latest batch of emojis for Team LeBron and Team Giannis. Needless...

DeMar DeRozan is all for players requesting trades

The major recipient of last summer’s Kawhi Leonard trade speaks out for the players. Despite being on the receiving end of one of the summer’s most controversial trades in recent years, San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan sides with the players when it comes to trade requests. Today San Antonio Express News’ Tom Orsborn reported: We all have the right, and if you feel that way, if you are not comfortable, if you want to go somewhere else that you feel you will be better off being at, go for it. I’m all for it. Nobody should feel enclosed to be at one place if they don’t feel...

Open Thread: Aldridge and DeRozan tried to recruit Wesley Matthews to the Spurs

Open Thread: Aldridge and DeRozan tried to recruit Wesley Matthews to the Spurs

The former Mav recently signed with the Pacers after being traded and waived. Wesley Matthews was recently traded from the Dallas Mavericks in the move that brought Kristaps Porzingis to Big D. He appeared in two games with the Knicks before being waived and ultimately chose to sign with the Indiana Pacers — who recently lost star guard Victor Oladipo to a ruptured quad — due to the promise of a starting position. However, it would seem Matthews received a lot more interest on the waiver wire than that. As Pacers reporter for The Athlietc Scott Agness noted, he received multiple...

Sneaker Spotlight: Lonnie Walker IV’s Adidas Harden, Vol. 3

Lonnie Walker is rocking a Southwest Division rival’s sneakers in his rookie quest through the workings of the NBA. Every spotlight I’ve done so far on a Spurs player’s sneakers have, for the most part, been Nike-oriented. Heck, even my initial spotlight on Puma-sponsored forward Rudy Gay was on a pair of Nike Kyrie 4s he was rocking while Puma was busy tweaking their shoes to better suit him. Nike, Nike, Nike, but why? Because, simply, I love Nike! It also helps that the Spurs’ big guns, DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, are Nike and Jordan guys (Jordan brand is distributed by...

Derrick White’s absence shows he’s a key ingredient to the Spurs’ success

Derrick White’s absence shows he’s a key ingredient to the Spurs’ success

The importance of White is showing in his absence. Derrick White can’t really be this important, can he? The absence of a second year player who’s only started 33 games shouldn’t make a playoff team look this discombobulated. But at least in the Spurs’ Thursday night thumping in Portland, that’s exactly what happened. The Trail Blazers’ defensive scheme put the onus on the Spurs’ stars to score in one-on-one match ups, something DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay were able to take advantage of. The two combined for 60 points on just 46 shooting possessions (43 shots and 3 shooting...

The Spurs’ third quarter comeback runs out of steam against Trail Blazers

San Antonio fought all night, but DeRozan’s big night couldn’t carry them over Portland. Rudy. Rudy. Rudy. Led by strong efforts from Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan, the Spurs put together an epic third quarter, briefly tying the game after trailing by as much as 21 points earlier in the quarter. Unfortunately, playing from behind takes its toll. The Spurs were unable to conjure up the energy required to complete the comeback, ultimately burying themselves in a pile of their own mistakes. Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum were lethal for the Portland Trail Blazers, scoring 54 points on 40...

Blazers Show Off New Hood Ornament in Win

The newest Blazer made an immediate impact in Portland’s 127-118 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. The Portland Trail Blazers bounced back from a tough loss to the Miami Heat with a convincing 127-118 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night, in their first game since the NBA Trade Deadline. Despite 30 points from CJ McCollum, it was recent acquisition Rodney Hood that had Moda Center rocking—as he scored 14 points off the bench in his team debut. The Spurs’ DeMar DeRozan led all scorers in the game with 35. After a back-and-forth first quarter in which both teams shot...

The Spurs can’t hold onto the ball and hand the Blazers a win The Spurs faced a team tonight that took the game away from them with superior effort and smarter play. Rudy Gay made a game of it in the third quarter with a magnificent scoring run to help the Spurs tie up the game, but the Silver and Black could not match Portland’s intensity as they pulled away in the fourth by diving for loose balls and hitting clutch shots. CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard took over the game, and they also got great contributions from Jusef Nurkic and Jake Layman. DeMar DeRozan had a big night scoring,...

Deciding whether DeMar DeRozan was snubbed

This week’s installment of the staff round-table looks at the Spurs’ All Star choice, and more. The shorthanded Spurs haven’t had the best start to the Rodeo Road Trip, After sweeping a four-game homestand, they lost to the Kings and Warriors in their first two matches away from the AT&T Center since late January. Pop rested his stars in the second matchup, so the hope now is that the worst is in the past and the road woes won’t continue for long as the team returns to more normal lineups. While the Spurs try to figure out how to mask Derrick White’s injury without dropping in the...

Three observations from the Warriors’ 141-102 victory over the Spurs

The Dubs are Rolling, Rolling. Gregg Popovich and his San Antonio Spurs knew that they could not manage the offensive load that is the Golden State Warriors. So he decided to give LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan the night off. Klay Thompson led the way with 26 points on an efficient 11 of 13 from the field and 4 of 5 from deep. Kevin Durant (more about him later) and Stephen Curry chipped in with 23 and 19 points respectively, as the Warriors rolled to 38-15 on the season. Judging from how the Warriors pushed the tempo, and how locked in they were offensively throughout last...
