Report; Rudy Gay is expected to re-sign with the Spurs

Retaining him is one of the Spurs’ top offseason priorities. Here’s some good news for Spurs fans! Rudy Gay is expected to re-sign with the Spurs this summer, likely for more than $10 million per season. As was first reported by Jordan Brenner of The Athletic in an article about contingency plans for teams losing top-tier talent in free agency (subscription required): Rudy Gay looks like such an option [for teams who lose or fail to land players like Kevin Durant or Kawhi Leonard], but multiple sources said they expect him to re-sign with the Spurs (potentially for more than $10...

Do the Warriors have what it takes to match the Spurs’ longevity?

Do the Warriors have what it takes to match the Spurs’ longevity?

Will the Warriors’ dynasty be short and sweet, or can they find a way to re-vamp, Spurs-style? The Golden State Warriors haven’t looked this vulnerable since the first round of the 2014 NBA Playoffs, when they lost Game 7 to the Clippers and it was quickly becoming clear that Mark Jackson wasn’t going to take them any further. Ever since then, they have been a nearly unstoppable force under Steve Kerr, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. That combo was good enough to win one championship and almost another (the loss of which can only described as self-destruction) while...

Blogger Mock Draft: The Spurs go big, swing big at 29

Blogger Mock Draft: The Spurs go big, swing big at 29

With the 29th pick in the Ridiculous Upside mock draft, the PTR Spurs took a flyer on a unique prospect in Georgia’s Nicolas Claxton. I’ll be honest — a few minutes after making my first pick in this year’s Ridiculous Upside mock draft, even after giving it a good deal of thought, I found myself second-guessing it. That has nothing to do with Grant Williams, who I think is a fine choice there in a vacuum, but more to do with the various ways the Spurs can play draft night out. With 12 players already under contract for next year (excluding Rudy Gay, who they’re expected to...

Appreciating what Tony Parker means to the Spurs

Appreciating what Tony Parker means to the Spurs

It feels past due to show TP some real Spurs love. When Spurs legend Tony Parker announced his retirement last week, it came at an awkward time. It was during a heavy news cycle, both for the NBA — Game 5 of the NBA Finals was that night — and oddly the Spurs as it was almost simultaneously reported that head assistant coach Ettore Messina was in negotiations with Milan (whom he would ultimately join), something that had a much larger impact on the Spurs as they stand today. Now that the Finals are over, the news cycle has slowed, and the NBA Draft is still a couple of days away, it...

Blogger Mock Draft: The Spurs stay on brand with their 19th pick

In SBNation’s annual mock draft, the Spurs used their 19th pick to select Tennessee’s Grant Williams, a guy who should be able to do a bit of everything. The 2019 NBA Draft is this Thursday, which gives fans just a few more precious days to speculate, daydream and predict which coveted player their team might take.

Open Thread: It’s time for the Spurs Hype Crew tryouts

Show the Silver & Black what you’ve got and represent the Spurs throughout the season. As you may recall, a little over a year ago the San Antonio Spurs disbanded the cheerleading team, known as the Silver Dancers, as well as their break dancing squad, Team Energy. Last summer they combined the skill sets of both groups, as well as opening up for other talents, and created the Hype Squad. Yours truly was there for the inaugural auditions, but I did not make the final cut. I did see some of my audition mates throughout the season and got a feel for what I was lacking (mostly youth,...

Open Thread: The difference between the Spurs longevity and the Heat’s four Finals appearances

Are these Warriors the next Miami Heat, or the beginning of the next NBA dynasty? During the telecast of Game 6, Mark Jackson used the word “dynasty” to describe the Golden State Warriors. The dictionary definition of dynasty is a line of hereditary rulers of a country or a succession of people from the same family who play a prominent role in business, politics, or another field. In basketball terms, it implies an ongoing team of players that keep the franchise relevant. The Los Angeles Lakers have won 16 titles over 61 seasons: first title in 1949 and the most recent in 2010. The...

What Anthony Davis to the Lakers means for the Spurs

The Davis trade hurts the Spurs chances of becoming a contender in the short term, but if they are patient, they could benefit from the frenzy it might cause. The Anthony Davis saga is finally over. After asking for a trade, The Brow got his wish of landing with the Lakers, who traded Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, three first round picks, and the rights to swap two picks to get the superstar big man. It’s a deal that could transform the league. It will certainly have a big impact on the Western Conference. The Pelicans are clearly embracing the tank while the Lakers now have two...

How basketball’s greatest trio got me through the toughest part of my life As you no doubt know by now, Spurs legend Tony Parker retired this week after an illustrious 18-year career in the NBA that included 4 selections to All-NBA teams, 6 All-Star selections, 4 NBA Championships, and a Finals MVP award for his performance in the 2007 Finals.
