Chris Mendez, Victor Drew Jimenez, John Serna The San Antonio Spurs are the 2014 NBA Champions, they received there 5th championship in franchise history. Up-and-coming Superstar SF Kawhi Leonard gets the 2014 NBA Finals MVP Trophy, and he become the 3rd-youngest Finals MVP in NBA History behind Hall-of-Famers Magic Johnson and teammate PF Tim Duncan, who continues to amazed us each and every year of his Hall-of-Fame career. Duncan is truly the greatest power forward in NBA History, and he received his 5th championship trophy, along with his brothers and quadruple of teammates, PG Tony Parker, SG Manu Ginobili and SF Kawhi Leonard. San Antonio also had that great bench they count on all year long. Thank you to all the key role players and bench that provided great spark along the way. SG Danny Green, PF/C Tiago Splitter, PF/C Boris Diaw, PG Patty Mills, PG Cory Joseph, SG Marco Belinelli, PF/C Matt Bonner, SF Austin Daye, PF Jeff Ayres and C Aron Baynes. None of this would have been possible without the S ...
Watching the Spurs won the championship and seeing all their players with their national flags - it certainly feels like it's a Who's Who of the World Cup soccer: Boris Diaw & Tony Parker - France Marco Belinelli - Italy Patty Mills - Australia ; Aron Baynes - New Zealand of course Manu Ginobili - Argentina Tiago Splitter - Brazil. now they just need to get Dirk from Germany and they will complete their soccer powerhouse collection
San Antonio — From the last seat at the end of the bench — the game decided and the San Antonio Spurs minutes away the NBA championship — Lebron James clapped after Michael Beasley made a meaningless shot. When Chris Bosh checked out of the game with 3 minutes, 17 seconds left in the Spurs' demolition of his Miami Heat, James met Bosh near halfcourt at the scorer's table for a hug. And when the clocked ticked toward zero, James marched toward the Spurs bench to offer congratulations. He hugged Kawhi Leonard first, then Gregg Popovich — the two have a deep mutual appreciation — followed by Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and then finally a long embrace with former teammate Danny Green. James then bolted for the Heat locker room following San Antonio's 104-87 victory in Game 5 Sunday. He eventually made his way to the postgame news conference and acknowledged one of those painful truths. "They were the much better basketball team," James said
Congratulations to Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, the first international players to win four NBA Championships
Happy Fathers Day to Gregg Popovich,Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Kahwi Leonard and all of the NBA champion Spurs!
October 30th, 2013. As the ball went up, the season opener was under way against the Memphis Grizzlies. I couldn't help but wonder, How? How could this team ever overcome the horrific, gut wrenching heartbreak that was Game 6 of last year's Finals? The image burned into my head, of Tim Duncan resting on the bench, when we needed a defensive rebound, practically daring LeBron to shoot a 3. As predicted, he did took the shot, but with no Duncan in the game, Bosh, secures the rebound, passed to an open Ray Allen, and...well...you all know what happened. Mike Breen's: "BANG!!! TIE GAME!" still ringing in my ears. Was it even remotely possible of replicating another renaissance year of Tim Duncan? Could Tony Parker finding enough energy to muster up another MVP like season after an exhausting run at gold medal at the 2013 Eurobasket Tournament? Could Manu Ginobili find a way to redeem himself from practically passing the ball to Miami during the Finals, seemingly more than their own point guard, playing the ab ...
Ageless veterans Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan is showing more will and heart in this game. They really wanna win that championship. :)
Yeah Heat. You hating on dem Spurs huh? Yall thought we were going down huh? Well guess what: Miami getting a taste of their own medicine. Kawhi Leonard, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw, yall putting on a heck of a fight. Despite the ice cold streak for Tony Parker, the Spurs are getting their redemption. Lebron James running outta energy. Dwayne Wade, you running outta energy also. All that trash talking against them Spurs is coming back to haunt you. THROW IT DOWN, MANU GINOBILI, THROW IT DOWN ( in my Bill Walton voice ) Strong offense and strong aggressive defense wins championships Team Heat gets to see how we feel now. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this just to be saying it but it's all outta love and respect.
End 1st quarter: The Spurs could not duplicate their flawless offensive form in Miami, shooting just 29 percent as Miami led by as many as 16 points in the first quarter. The Spurs still cut it down to seven by the end of the period, with Manu Ginobili sparking a 12-0 run with six points and an assist. But Lebron James has been incredible so far, scoring 17 points with six rebounds while helping hold Tony Parker to 0 for 4 shooting.
probably most ridiculous claim ever made with both Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker on the court at the same time.
The San Antonio Spurs dynasty was forged on the prowess of the Big Three—Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. Together, they led the post-Admiral Spurs to three titles, 2003, ’05 and ’07.

With the A/C out and Lebron James cramping, San Antonio surges late for a Game 1 win. When dealing with the Heat and the heat, and with James forced out with cramps, the Spurs took full advantage. Tim Duncan had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Miami Heat 110-95 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals inside a sweltering and steamy AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. With an air-conditioning failure making it feel like basketball in a sauna and causing James to battle cramps that knocked him out of the game's decisive stretch, the Spurs pulled away to win the opener of the first Finals rematch since 1998. Manu Ginobili had 16 points and 11 assists, and Tony Parker added 19 points and eight assists for the Spurs, who shot 59 percent and improved to 6-for-6 in NBA Finals Game 1s. James finished with 25 points but played only 33 minutes, and Miami was outscored 36-17 in the fourth quarter. Dwyane Wade scored 19 points and Chris Bosh had 18 for the Heat, who wilted in temperatures that soared ...
Tim Duncan (21 points 10 rebounds), Tony Parker (19 points 8 assists) and Manu Ginobili (16 points 5 rebounds 11 assists). look at those stats... how could we lose when plays like that Andre Thompson Jonathan Williams
Tim Duncan, Tony Parker or Manu Ginobili scored or assisted on 16 of the Spurs 18 made field goals in the 1st half
Jemele Hill explained it best. The Bulls drafted Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, the San Antonioni Spurs drafted and molded Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili. The Heat went out and just bought talent and started winning right away, instead of drafting and molding their players, so it's hard for me to call them a dynasty when they were nothing before they signed players. Their championship in 2006, Shaquille O'Neal signed, then they win the next year. Pat Riley is the master at buying talent.
Manu Ginobili says Coach Popovich told him "3 minutes before the game" that Tony Parker might be limited tonight
Congratulations to Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and the Spurs for becoming the Western Conference champions once again!

Oklahoma City (AP) -- When asked about the oldie-but-goodie San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant inquired about Tony Parker's age. "Thirty-two," a reporter answered. "He is old," Durant quipped, drawing laughter. "He doesn't play like he's 32 years old." Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili are even older. Duncan just turned 38 and Ginobili is approaching 37. The trio won its first NBA title together in 2003 and fought back Father Time to reach the NBA Finals last year. They will play in their seventh Western Conference Finals together, starting with Game 1 Monday night in San Antonio. Durant, the league's MVP, said there's more to San Antonio's success than some mythical fountain of youth. It starts with the genius of Gregg Popovich, the league's Coach of the Year. "Their system, they plug guys in and out," Durant said. "They always stick to their same system. They get guys who fit. And they've got a great coach who gets those guys prepared." Even with an aging core and numerous injuries throughout th ...
Kobe Bryant Made 30M this year. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker & Manu Ginobili Made 29.7M Combined…… Some people say it is all about rings but actions speak louder than words. Yes Kobe has five and had better players on his team nonetheless the Spurs were a Ray Ray three away from winning. If we are comparing consistency, The Spurs have been the model of consistency. This is a new league with a CBA that does not allow for one man to make so much money and surround him with other all stars. This is why the Lakers will not win until Kobe retires. I'm a LAKER FAN for life but numbers don't lie. You can't mortgage the future for two years of Kobe. I blame the players because they allowed this to happen during the lockout…. It is what it is folks. The cap is 58M Kobe will make 24.5M Nash 9.7M that is more than HALF OF THEIR CAP… If they sign Melo, He will want a MAX deal. Lastly if they resign Pau Gasol, then what money is left? You can pay your players more due to the Larry Bird rule but you can't sign new p ...

The San Antonio proved last night, that its take great effort, determination, teamwork and motivation to close out series despite missing there best player on the court. Tony Parker left in the 2nd quarter of Game 5 because of a hamstring injury, so he was unable to return, leaving the Spurs without there best offensive threat on the court. The San Antonio Spurs don't ever have to prove anything to anybody, we know that they are the most consistence team in the league. They get contributions from basically every player on the team, so it was no surprise to see it took a complete and total team effort for the Spurs to close out the Portland Trail Blazers in 5 games. The Spurs offensive balance with there bench completely overwhelmed the Blazers, as the Spurs bench outscored Portland's 220-73 in the 5 games these two teams played. San Antonio had too much firepower for the Blazers to deal with, to many 3-point threats that it became ultimately too much for them to handle. With Tony Parker leaving the game i ...
Tony Parker left the game with an injury in the first half and Manu Ginobili didn't play well, but Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, and Tim Duncan all had good games as the Spurs beat the Blazers convincingly to close out the series and advance.

This page features the list with the NBA players that have won more NBA Championships For the NBA fans who think there wasn't life before Michael Jordan, here is the list with players with at least 3 championship rings. Bill Russell has more rings than fingers to wear them and is at the top of the list with the 11 titles he won in the golden era of the Boston Celtics. As a fact, the top spots are dominated by Celtics players from those years but Russell is the only one who was member of all those championship teams. Robert Horry and John Salley are the only players in this list who won championships with 3 different teams. Derek Fisher Kobe Bryant with 5 championships, Tim Duncan with 4 and Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem with 3, are the most recent members of this exclusive group and they are also the only active players here.

Griffin had 21 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists on his 25th birthday as the Los Angeles Clippers held off the Cleveland Cavaliers 102-80 Sunday for their 11th consecutive victory. Chris Paul had 15 assists and scored 11 of his 16 points in the final 6:04 for the Clippers, who haven’t lost since Feb. 21. Los Angeles matched the longest winning streak in the NBA this season, equalling 11-game runs in November by Portland and San Antonio.“This stretch of games that we’ve played and we’ve been successful, has been a huge team effort,” Griffin said. “With our team, I don’t think it’s one guy that’s making us go. I genuinely believe it’s been a total team effort.” The San Antonio Spurs kept their own win streak alive, topping the Utah Jazz 122-104 for their 10th straight victory.Argentine star Manu Ginobili scored 21 points, Tony Parker had 18 points and Tim Duncan 16 for the Spurs (50-16), who became the first NBA team to 50 wins this season.

Even though the Spurs and Timberwolves didn't get a chance to put on a show in Mexico last week, they were able to give us a great one, last night in San Antonio. It was completely unexpected that it would be a high scoring affair between San Antonio and Minnesota. Kevin Love continues to prove why he is one of the best players in the NBA right now, scoring 19 of his season-high 42 points and burying 5 of his 8 made 3-pointers in the 3rd quarter, but despite Love's explosion, it was the veteran star power for San Antonio, with SG Manu Ginobili and PG Tony Parker, taking over the 4th and final quarter. Ginobili scored 16 of his 20 points and dish out 4 of his 9 assists in the final period, helping bring the Spurs back from a nine-point deficit entering the 4th quarter, after Love's hot shooting display. It wasn't just Ginobili who step up big time in the 4th quarter, as superstar Tony Parker scored 12 of his 29 points, helping the Spurs get the 117-110 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. This great wi ...
Manu Ginobili looked great tonight. Looked so fired up in there. Tony Parker played great too, exciting win tonight by the Spurs. Josesito Lopez is fighting tonight, after having three tough fights in a row (Ortiz, Canelo, and Maidana), he's getting what should be an easy tune-up fight against Mike Arnaoutis. Hopefully Lopez looks good and moves on to a bigger fight in 2014.
Good night again y'all. Love y'all. I love my I love my boys Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili

(SportsNetwork.com) - The surging San Antonio Spurs are back in the Alamo City and will put their nine-game winning streak on the line Saturday versus the Cleveland Cavaliers at the AT&T Center.

Chris Mendez, Victor Drew Jimenez The San Antonio Spurs, were without Tim Duncan, the LA Lakers were without Kobe Bryant first time since 1996 that these two teams were playing a game without the key franchises players of there respective teams. Tony Parker scores 24 points and dishes out 6 assists, Manu Ginobili scores 20 points and buries three 3-pointers, as the Spurs knocked off the LA Lakers 91-85. If San Antonio wanted to win this key road game, they were going to need there other superstars players and role players to step up and guided this team to victory. Well Tony Parker as the best player of the team was absolutely sensational throughout the entire game. Parker started out very well in the 1st period, scoring 6 points in a variety of different ways, he scored a bucket inside, he also knock down two outside jumpers, he made it extremely difficult for the Lakers defense to do anything to stop him all game long. He even had a good pass to a wide-open Kawhi Leonard from the jumper. Parker continue ...
Los Angeles (AP) -- GO SPURS GO ! Although the Spurs and the Lakers hadn't played a game without Tim Duncan or Kobe Bryant on the court in 17 years, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili haven't gone anywhere. And even without Duncan, San Antonio is still doing the same boring stuff with the same stellar results. Parker had 24 points and six assists, Kawhi Leonard added 15 points and 11 rebounds, and the Spurs survived without Duncan for a 91-85 victory over Los Angeles on Friday night. Duncan sat out after bruising his chest in Wednesday's season-opening victory over Memphis, but Spurs coach Gregg Popovich promised his defending Western Conference champions would do the ''same boring stuff'' even without their franchise cornerstone since 1997. That's exactly what the Spurs did, recovering from an early 15-point deficit and executing well in the final minutes while the new-look Lakers faltered against the club that swept them out of the first round of last spring's playoffs. ''We had a rough start, but in the sec ...

Its amazing to see how the Spurs have changed their roster since their last title in 2007, and they've still been top contenders in the NBA. In 2007, the Spurs roster was: Brent Barry, Matt Bonner, Bruce Bowen, Jackie Butler, Tim Duncan, Francisco Elson, Melvin Ely, Michael Finley, Manu Ginobili, Robert Horry, Fabricio Oberto, Tony Parker, Beno Udrih, Jacque Vaughn, James White, and Eric Williams. Only 4 of those players are on the current roster. Just goes to show how smart the Spurs are in trades, drafting, and free agency. -Cole

Tim Duncan's and Tony Parker's reaction on the two-year deal that brings back Manu Ginobili to the San Antonio Spurs:
ESPN: Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Danny Green and now Manu Ginobili all have contracts that expire following 2014-15 season. -CH
If you're one of the *** here that TRULY believes the NBA is rigged, I want to give you a few stats from games 6 and 7. - GAME 6: Manu Ginobili had 8 Turnovers). Danny Green - 1/7 FG (14%), only had 3 points. Tony Parker - 6/23 FG (23%). Tim Duncan had 5 points in the 2nd half after 25 in the 1st, and those 5 all came in the 3rd quarter. GAME 7: Ginobili with 4 Turnovers. Danny Green - 1/12 FG (8%), only 5 points. Tony Parker - 3/12 FG (25%), 10 points. The whole team shot 37%. - You CAN'T rig a team of excellent players having BAD GAMES. You CAN'T rig 8 Ginobili Turnovers. You CAN'T rig Parker going 9/35 FG (25%) over the last two games. You CAN'T rig Gregg Popovich making a MISTAKE in sitting Tony Parker at the end of both games. The Spurs CHOKED in Game 6. CHOKED. Heat/LeBron haters need to STOP trying to find excuses for why Miami won. The Heat were the better team. End of story. -Agitated Boston Celtics fan Mark
"To be at this point with this team in this situation, where people every year continue to count us out, is a great accomplishment," -Duncan (Timmy)-21 "Being so close and feeling that you are about to grab that trophy and then seeing it vanish is very hard, "I think that if we would've lost both games like this, I would be a little more up. But it's a tough feeling." -Manu Ginobili-20 "It's been five, six years you saying we're too old, so I'm not going to answer that." -Tony Parker-09 "After a little while just getting up when you want to in the morning and really not having challenges gets a little boring," Popovich said before the game. "You can only grow so many tomatoes and read so many books. You want to get busy, get competitive again. -Coach Gregg Popovich- # it's okey guys even though we didnt grab the trophy for this year but, still im proud of you!!! the best Big Three I ever live. we have 4 champions!! 1999, 2003, 2005 and 2007..you have it all!!! This year's Finals(2013) against Miami. Lost ...
The Miami Heat are back-to-back NBA Champions, but the San Antonio Spurs made them earn every last bit of it. It was a hard-fought if not always pretty Game 7, but Lebron James finished with 37 points and 12 rebounds to lead Miami to a 95-88 win. LeBron was rightfully named NBA Finals MVP. He earned that with a good series where he stepped up and played his best when his team needed it in the fourth quarter of Game 6 and all of Game 7. LeBron joins Michael Jordan and Bill Russell as the only players to win back-to-back MVPs and NBA titles in the same years. This has been the most entertaining NBA Finals in years and that was due in large part to a Spurs team that never wilted under Miami’s pressure. Tim Duncan had 24 points, 21-year-old Kawhi Leonard had 18 and the Spurs as a team showed why they were one of the best teams of their generation. But in the end Tony Parker had to sit as he was gassed and Manu Ginobili made turnovers. Even the great Duncan missed a clean look to tie it late. Miami had great ...
The Spurs just landed back in San Antonio I want to thank them on an incredible year nobody picked them to be one of the last teams standing. Everyone said they were too old to slow. Tim Duncan is nothing but class since he has been with the Spurs 16 years they have never missed the playoffs won four NBA titles also have the highest winning percentage in the post-season during those 16 years. Also have an NBA record of 14 straight 50 win seasons. They came up a little bit short this year but for a small market team who believes in team I stress team and family they have four NBA titles only three other teams have more Celtics, Lakers, Bulls. Also want to give a shout-out to Kawhi Leonard who is 21 years old and is rising star for the Spurs he would only be a Senior at San Diego State if he would not have come out early. Congratulations to the other Spur players future HOF Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Coach Pop. Job well done. Go Spurs Go. On a last note I will be flying back to San Diego Thursday for my c ...
Breaking down the NBA Finals teams. San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan - The best power forward to ever play the game. Fundamentals are off the charts. 1 year left sadly Tony Parker - The best at switching speeds up n down the floor. Underated by many for absolutely no reason. Tear drops everywhere. 1-3 yrs left. Manu Ginobili - many call him a flopper, ugly bball style that works, and anybody would love to have a player like that on their team. Maybe 1 yr left. Kawhi Leonard - budding star just learning the offensive game, defensive stalwart, and the perfect Spur. Danny Green - Streaky shooter from downtown, pretty good d, and stumbles majorly during pressure. Tiago Splitter - soft euro player who can make a basket once in awhile. He makes Pau look great. Gary Neal - nails wide open jump shots Cory Joseph - young mediocre backup pg still learning the game Matt Bonner - big guy w three point shot just like Matt Bullard from the Rockets back in the 90s.
Ok ok Lebron lived up to all the hype. I'm still not a fan though, but all in all the Heat did it. Here are some of the voicemails being left in the past 24 hours surrounding the Miami win. - Manu Ginobili to Pat Riley: hey Mr. Riley I'll be sending a text with my Swiss bank account info to u in the next hour or so. - Tim Duncan to Lebron: man Bron back in 06 when i said you'll have your time to shine i wasn't talking about now. U just couldn't let me go out on top... - Jason Collins to Chris Bosh: hey Chris i know u guys just won another Championship but u might want to put your big announcement on hold for right now. U know what i mean. - Tony Parker to Boris Diaw: attente a moi vois Ginobili, je suis un droit vais Napoleon sur cela (translation: wait to i see Ginobili, I'm a straight go Napoleon on that Chris Bosh to Lil Wayne: Weezy tell my wife its time to come home cause Daddy ready to celebrate. - Lebron James to Dewayne Wade: hey D who do u think we should get for Bosh, Blake Grif or D Howard - M ...
I just remember, i had this weirdest dream last nyt that the Miami Heat team are celebrating their championship victory at the park somewhere here in New jersey and then the team spurs came and joined the picnic and they brought food, Tim Duncan brought "lechon", Tony Parker brought "kinilaw n tuna" ,and Manu Ginobili brought "kalderetang kambing" and everybody enjoyed and had a good time. Can someone interpret this dream for me?.joke!!!ha ha ha.
10 reasons San Antonio is still a title contender. 10: Gregg Popovich is still the coach. He picks players that want to help the team, not average 20 a game. 9: Tony Parker isn't going anywhere. Anytime you have a top 5 player on your team, you're gonna be competitive 8: Manu Ginobili is still effective. He still plays good defense, passes, scores, and comes up big. 7: Kawhi Leonard. We saw before our eyes Kawhi Leonard becoming a future player and top SF in this league. Leonard could very well average 16 points, 4 assists, 8 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block next season. 6: Danny Green has become more consistent. The last couple games he was under the weather, but aside from those 2 games he was Mr. Consistency 5: Defense. The Spurs are still a great defensive team, and they can still shut down any team. 4: Chemistry. The Spurs have great chemistry from playing well for so many years, and the core group is still there 3: 3's. San Antonio is still one of the best 3 point shooting teams in this league 2: Foundat ...
Y'know, in game 6 of the Finals, Tim Duncan was five seconds (5 SECONDS) away from winning his fifth title until Gregg Popovich chose to play small ball with Miami by benching him in favor of Boris Diaw just because Diaw can 'defend the perimeter a bit better'. Diaw then allowed multiple offensive rebounds in consecutive possessions that led to two miraculous 3s, one by Lebron James and the other by Ray Allen. Not going to mention anything about Manu Ginobili's play, which threw the series away. Duncan did everything he could in games 6 and 7. The team just wasn't good enough outside of him, Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard. It also doesn't help when Danny Green goes 1-for-12. To me, Duncan is still the 6th greatest player of all-time (behind Jordan, Magic, Russell, Bird and Kareem) and the absolute greatest power forward of all-time.
HATS Off and "RESPECT" to the San Antonio Spurs, Greg Popovich, The Great Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, upstarts Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Gary Neal, Toago Splitter, Boris Diaw who showed once again that they are one of the "Classiest" and Professional Organizations in "ALL" of Sports.. It was painful to see a team with such Heart lose but they can always hang their heads High... They left is ALL out there on the Court and you can only Respect the Performance(s) that they gave us.
Tony Parker,Tim Duncan,Manu Ginobili, Kawhi Leonard, Tiago Splitter,Danny Green,Matt Bonner,Gary Neal and the rest of Spurs heck of a game my hat goes off to yall you gave Miami a run for its money. NBA Champs Miami Heat
"Spurs is a humble and a classy organization that deserves a lot of RESPECT... They developed and drafted their key role players, like Danny Green (journey man and 2009 46th pick of 2009 draft;made 25 three pointers; new nba record) Gary Neal (Undrafted;spent three years overseas; scored 24 points in game 3), Boris Diaw (Almost left the NBA) , Matt Bonner (45th pick), Tony Parker (28th pick, 2001), Manu Ginobili (57th pick overall, 1999), Kawhi Leonard (15th overall) ... Only Tim Duncan in the current Roster and TMAC are 10th pick above." No Superstars, No need to combine just fundamental play... This team deserves a lot of respect...
Don't blame the refs, San Antonio fan and NBA Conspiracy Theorists, for Tony Parker shooting 6-23, Manu Ginobili having 8 turn-overs and Popp making 2 questionable decisions regarding sitting Duncan. Admit it, you hate LeBron. That is why you are blaming the refs. Also, Bosh's block was clean; all ball.
Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan, you both had a great play today... You made HEAT feel how veterans play.. You have my support for the Game 7! GO!go!go! San Antonio!
THE OVERNIGHT SPORTS RANT: Some Game 6 there Tuesday night near downtown Miami, wasn't it? One of the greatest NBA Finals games of all-time. That game was literally in the bag for the San Antonio Spurs. You felt like that within moments, the clock was going to read :00 and NBA Commissioner David Stern was going to be handing the Larry O'Brien Trophy to owner Peter Holt, general manager R.C. Buford and head coach Greg Popovich. But then the Spurs did something that was unthinkable even to the hardest of NBA fans -- they lost their composure! Yes, the Cool Hand Lukes of the NBA, the San Antonio Spurs, needed someone -- whether it was Kawhi Leonard or Manu Ginobili or Tony Parker -- to nail two straight free throws to put the game away. Instead, each of them went 1-for-2 in their attempts down the stretch when Miami Heat players fouled them. Oh, they also needed one more rebound on the defensive end. They took Tim Duncan -- who was showing a nation that he could turn the clock back 10 years just as well as t ...
It is kind of freaky how evenly matched the Spurs Big Three/Four and the Miami Heat Big Three/Four were in Game 5. Check out the point totals: Tim Duncan 17 Chris Bosh 16 Tony Parker 26 Lebron James 25 Manu Ginobili 24 Dwayne Wade 25 Danny Green 24 Ray Allen 21 That’s a 4 point advantage for the Spurs. Then you throw in Kawhi Leonard’s 16 points which was 2 points better than Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers’ efforts combined. Splitter, Neal and Diaw combined for another 7 points while all the Heat had left was a desperation 3 from James Jones. And there is your 10-point spread.
Even king James and his 40+ point scoring heroics won't be enough to prevent Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green after last nights critical Finals game 5 win from hoisting the heralded Larry O' Bryan NBA Finals trophy for their 5th NBA Finals career time come tomorrow night! # After tomorrow night it finally might be acceptable to at least consider ranking Tim Duncan right up there in NBA playoff and Finals career rankings in second in wins and personal performance behind the still greatest basketball player of all time, Air Jordan!
Sports Fast-Break MONDAY, JUNE 17 JOLLY GREEN GIANT: GREEN BIG AGAIN IN SPURS 114-104 VICTORY The San Antonio Spurs started three guards against the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals Sunday, and all three put on spectacular shows. Danny Green hit six more 3-pointers on his way to 24 points, and now holds the NBA Finals record for most 3-pointers with 25. Surprise starter Manu Ginobili made his coach, Gregg Popovich, look like a genius, also finishing with 24, while Tony Parker poured in 26, Tim Duncan 17, and Kawhi Leonard 16. Lebron James and Dwyane Wade scored 25 apiece in the loss. The Spurs now lead the series 3-2, with Game 6 scheduled for tomorrow in Miami. LEFT(Y) OUT AGAIN: MICKELSON U.S. OPEN BRIDESMAID ONCE MORE Just like a guy who survives a capsized boat, swims all the way to land, only to die at the shoreline, Phil Mickelson agonizingly finished second in the U.S. Open for a record sixth time Sunday, calling his latest near-miss “heartbreaking.” Englishman Justin Rose proved to be th ...
Tony Parker has to be great but if Manu Ginobili plays like a superstar the Spurs will win this series
Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are doing whatever they want in this game
Tony Parker's hamstring, not Dwyane Wade's knee, is the current chief injury concern. Manu Ginobili, not Chris Bosh, is mired in the slump of the moment. Things change quickly at the NBA Finals, and with everything suddenly seeming right with the Miami Heat, it's up to the San Antonio Spurs to change them back Sunday night in Game 5. "It is a must-win. We don't want to go back down there down a game with two games remaining at their house," Spurs star Tim Duncan said Saturday. "Obviously, we lose this game, we're not giving up or anything, but we want to go back up with a chance to finish there. Huge pressure if we have to go back there and try to win two." The Heat evened the series with a 109-93 victory Thursday night, setting up what's often the pivotal moment of the finals. Of the 27 times the series was tied at 2-2, the Game 5 winner went on to win 20 of them. "I think that's what everyone would like, 2-2 in the finals for Game 5," Lebron James said. "We are excited about the opportunity. We have ano ...
Lots of quotes from practice today: Tony Parker, "My hamstring can tear at any time now." Oh, boy. Thats not very promising. Tiago Splitter on Game 4: “It’s been in my head this last day. I know what I’ve got to do, I’ve got to a player smarter & stronger.” Parker said if it were regular season, he'd be sitting out 10 days to prevent further injury. Manu Ginobili on whether he’ll retire after the Finals: “I really don’t know. I cannot imagine me NOT playing one more year here.” Manu on Game 5’s significance: “We don’t want to go back to Miami knowing we have to win two (games).” Manu on his health: “I am fine.” Manu said Kawhi Leonard’s knee is a little sore though. Manu Ginobili said it’s not just about him, it’s about the team & system. “It’s a matter of us, not me,” Tiago Splitter willing to sacrifice: “I will do whatever I have to do to win the game. Even if it means I sit 47 minutes on the bench.” Kawhi Leonard says San Diego has better tacos than San Ant ...
Good to see Shane Battier getting minutes. Battier, Dwy-ane Wade, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker should be a high-stakes flop fest!
Trevia in this game3 of the NBA Finals. The San Antonio Spurs players are flavored, most of them are international player just like Tiago Spliter and Manu Ginobili they both Argentinian, and Tony Parker the small but terrible and maybe if Spurs got past the Heat become a strong contender to become a final's MVP his from France, a member of a France National team., only Mat Bonner is the native of the US whose member of the 2007 Spurs Championship, The Spurs also have Brazillian, Bilgium, US Virgin island, New Zealand, and Canada a savory flavored player. But the Miami Heat also have an international member wich commited a very high profile job in the courtside the Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra., even though he is born in the US but his mother is a pure Filipina. His FilAm, the first asian to become headcoach in any major US sports the NBA.

Come on ppl you all don't understand,I'm a good sport, I'm a supporter of San AntOINO SPURS,I appreciate my WINS and I accept my LOOSES,so win loose or draw I will remain a SUPPORTER of the Spurs. As long as their is Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, I Karen Reynolds will be a supporter not a fan. And if ever I should leave it's Canada here I come...RAPTORS!!
Three questions, answered Can Chris Bosh do anything?: Bosh scored 12 efficient points and grabbed 10 rebounds. He also added four assists and did more than step in from his failed three-point shooting from prior games. Bosh was hustling to chase down offensive boards, recovering quickly on pick-and-roll defense to get into passing lanes and record three steals. Can the Heat force turnovers?: By the first quarter, San Antonio had already recorded four turnovers to equal its Game 1 total. The Spurs finished with 17 for the game, leading to 19 points. On the flip side, Miami recorded just five turnovers for two points in return. Can Miami stop Tony Parker?: Parker didn't have the best of games in going 5-for-14 for 14 points, five assists and five turnovers, but he didn't get much help. Tim Duncan struggled mightily and Manu Ginobili could hardly hang on to the ball. The Spurs bench got outplayed until garbage time as Ginobili put in just five points and had three turnovers.
Against Lebron James and Heat, Spurs' Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili pull no-show in Game 2 nydailynews
NBA Finals! Dos and don'ts For Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. Miami Heat. -Do 1. Lebron James must score more points. 18pts are not enough, he must score atleast 25 a game when your teammates are not in good shape like Bosh and Wade. 2. Bosh in the defensive ends. Chris Bosh should guard Tim Duncan as good as a championship calibre defense. 3. Slow Down TP9. 4. Less Turnover 5. Pick N' Roll. -Don'ts 1. Don't let Tony Parker to score big points. 2. Don't Double Team anybody in the court. It can lead to wide open shots, Spurs is a great shooting team. 3. Don't let Manu Ginobili drive in the middle. It would collapse the defense and Manu Ginobili will pass the ball to wide open shooter. 4. Don't flop Lebron James. San Antonio Spurs. -Dos 1. Defense is an offense. Tim Duncan in theMiddle with the Help of Splitter enhances the defense inside. 2. K. Leonard big task. If Leonard can do that defense again against Lebron James the chance of Miami to win this coming game 2 is narrow. Lebron James' 18pts in game ...
Players and coaches from both the Heat and Spurs break down Tony Parker's game-winning shot in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Of course Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili are superstars but they are not even close to Jordan or Kobe. C´mon!
LBJorilla =)) Tony Parker, Tim Dncan, and Manu Ginobili for the win!! The true Big Three!!
Miami would try to choke Tony Parker making pass the ball out quickly so Spurs gotta help out. Manu Ginobili should improve on his shots.
Game 2 of the NBA Finals tomorrow, so far the Spurs lead the series 1-0. They played solid defense throughout game 1 and they made clutch baskets at the crucial stretch of the game. Tony Parker, Manu ginobili & Tim Duncan played their A game plus their supporting cast put on a solid performance. On the other side, Miami did played well Led by Lebron James' 2nd straight career triple double & Ray Allen's heroics off the bench, however the Heat relied too much on LeBron who admitted that he succumbed to fatigue. LeBron averaged about 45 mins per game throughout this years playoffs & now it's toll is starting affect the 4 time mvp's play. Another problem with Miami is D. Wade & Bosh, They are averaging 17 & 13 respectively. It ain't enough for them to win another Larry O'Brien Trophy this year if they wont step up. The Miami Heat is not only built around Lebron James, It's built around 12 players who needs to step up and answer the Spurs' challenge. LeBron shouldnt be blamed, the whole team should be.

Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan. The golden triangle. Amazed by their passion and skills for bball even though they are in their 30s.
Cause I think about it, Tim Duncan is Ric Flair, Manu Ginobili is Tully Blanchard, Tony Parker is Arn Anderson...
Did you catch this INSANE between-the-legs pass in Game 1 from Manu Ginobili to Tony Parker?? He threw it between Norris Cole's legs AS HE WAS RUNNING! Incredible... Without a doubt this was the best pass of the year.
~REPOSTED~ Gregg Popovich has been with Tim Duncan for 16 years, Tony Parker for 12 and Manu Ginobili for 11. Even though they belong to a small market team and they are always underrated by everybody except by their fans, these guys are one of the most successful groupings in NBA History. -Manuel-
If you watch any sports gif ever, make it this one. Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, and Gregg Popovich through the years. Incredible editing going on here.

Go Go Go Spurs !? Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili Go and Danny Green !? W3 are going to win this thing !? rar ?!
San Antonio claims Game One of the NBA finals. Come on guys nut up and win the other three. This may be Tim Duncan's swan song so we should go out with a big bang. Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are key pieces of the spurs and they need to step up big if we are going to dethrone Miami. Come on guys we believe
Manu Ginobili's incredible pass through the legs of Norris Cole to Tony Parker.-Arman
Tim Duncan only has 4 NBA rings. He doesn't sell enough jerseys to even be in the top 20! Kobe has 5 rings and LeBron has 1. But Tim Duncan in my eyes has to be top 5 All time and better than Kobe AND LeBron. He didn't need max contract players like Shaq or a DWade or Bosh to win. He's been winning with Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili - 2 second round picks and in fact Manu was the overall 55th pick or something ! How can he, Tim Duncan not be ONE of the GREATEST ever to play basketball !? OH HE SURE *** IS !
Factors why San Antonio Spurs steal game 1 at American Airlines Center. 1. Tony Parker -he is unstoppable. With his 10pts in the fourth quarter, a total of 21pts and his winning shot. 2. Tim Duncan -A Mismatch nightmare. Tim Duncan in the middle not allowing Miami in direct penetration. 3. Manu Ginobili. -Manu Ginobili driving in the middle allows the defense of Miami Heat to collapse and create space and make a pass to wide open spurs. 4. Gregg Popovich -savvy coach Gregg Popovich. With his "Nasty" plays and chemistry to his players like Tim Duncan, TP9 and MG20. Experiences in NBA Finals make the Spurs tough to Defeat. Spurs
And now... 12 useless NBA Finals Facts! 12. The Heat have a senior citizen dance squad called The Golden Oldies: They perform once a month and are the greatest thing in that building whose name doesn’t rhyme with LeKron Zhames. 11. A remarkable 60% of the Spurs' 15 players are from overseas, including, from left to right, Boris Diaw (France), Patty Mills (Australia), Tim Duncan (U.S. Virgin Islands), Manu Ginobili (Argentina) and Tony Parker (France). 10. Norris Cole (Heat Guard): He rocks a magnificent high-top fade. This is why you must cheer for him. 9. The Miami Heat retired No. 23 to honor Michael Jordan. He never played for them. lol 8. The Spurs' mascot was once ejected from a game. Repeating: The mascot was ejected. The coyote got the heave *** from the ref for pretending to fight a player on the Minnesota Timberwolves during a game. "That's the greatest thing I've ever heard," said Tim Duncan. 7. The Heat's name was chosen by fan voting. Among the other contenders: the Miami Flamingos, Miami Be ...
LeBron really said Duncan has been the most dominant player the last 15 years because of his consistency? How bout Kobe making All-NBA First Team 11 times compared to Duncan's 10...5 rings compared to Duncan's 4, 15 all-star teams compared to duncans 14.Are we seeing a trend here??? Kobe has 1-upped Duncan in EVERYTHING...Not to mention the last 3 years, Duncan's points per game have been 13, 15, and 17...Seriously?? Get real! Tim Duncan has been consistently MEDIOCRE the last 10 years, having flashes of excellence despite his overall diminished play, relying on Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili to do all of the heavy lifting...Whereas Kobe has been consistently EXCELLENT, having to carry teams by himself! I don't see any argument that can put Duncan ahead of Kobe, except that maybe Duncan plays more of a role on the defensive end. Thats it.
hey ESPN real talk, getting Kevin Love's perspective about how tough Lebron James and Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili,and the X FACTOR Tony Parker are isn't really a perspective when you take in account in the degree of how horrible the wolves are.
breaking news now indicate that Tony Parker, Duncan and Manu Ginobili will be seating this one out.. ---for real? dili sila mudula 1st game? nabuang na!
GAME 1 Heat 112, Spurs 105 Miami opened the 2013 Finals by showing why they are the defending NBA champions. Lebron James (30 points, 11 assists, 6 rebounds) continued his playoff excellence. Tim Duncan (22 points, 12 rebounds) led the way for San Antonio but with Tony Parker (11 points, 7 assists) and Manu Ginobili struggling for most of the night, the Heat’s supporting cast and swarming defense solidified Miami's Game 1 victory. The Heat showed consistency offensively, scoring 28 in each quarter of the game, and took advantage of their home-court. GAME 2 Heat 97, Spurs 78 The Heat’s defense shined once again in Game 2 as they held the Spurs to 32% shooting from the field. Despite a huge night from Duncan (20 points, 14 rebounds) and Parker (22 points, 5 assists), Miami’s defense gave the rest of San Antonio’s offense major issues. James (20 points, 13 assists) led his team with a balanced scoring effort including hot shooting from Ray Allen (22 points) off the bench. San Antonio's lack ...
xcited to see Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs play in the finals again...
Ok I came home fr work when the 4th quarter of the NBA Championship game started. Can someone tell me where in the *** are Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili? Why are there "no name" players on the court? AND how in the *** are they keeping up with the Miami Heat?!?!
The trendiness of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker is the basketball equivalent of the Grand Canyon and Gov. Chris Christie’s waistline, a long time in the making.
At only 21, Leonard has become the Spurs' third star in these playoffs behind Tim Duncan and Tony Parker and ahead of Manu Ginobili. He's their second-best rebounder, their steals leader, and their second-best shooter (56.5 percent). And with arms like a squid and hands the size of waffle irons, their best perimeter defender. *** yeah the boy is a beast
OK sports fans, the NBA tournament is about to start. The finals are her and Miami is going to undoubtedly repeat-All of my older friends have been on the San Antonio band wagon since the start of the season and to my surprise the over the hill gang has been unstoppable. But it all ends now- Miami has been on cruise control. Indiana never stood a chance of winning- Everyone questions Wade's ability but he is one of the rare players that can turn there game off an on. He rises to the occasion when he must. Remember the Shaq years when Wade really on the championship for Miami?? Must I talk about Labron? He is a beast- What about Birdman? Awesome- OK Tony Parker is an all time guard and the left handed demon Manu Ginobili is due for a big series so this may tern out to be a contest but Miami will wind up on top. Let's talk three-peat
GO SPURS!! Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili may be way past their prime after 16years in the league. But if there is two old'skool type work horses, it's those two right there. Plus, Miami does not have any one that can guard Tony Parker! I see Timmy retiring with a 5th NBA Championship to his name.
How about another toss-up? Who would YOU rather have for the Finals? Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker or Dwayne Wade and Mario Chalmers? I would go with Manu and Tony because of experience and the gap between the skill level of Chalmers and Parker. Make sure to LIKE, COMMENT, and SHARE! -A$AP Rotchy
FIVE QUICK QUESTIONS (AND ANSWERS) 1. Can the Spurs' precision ball movement outsmart the Heat's pressure defense? When Miami bears down defensively, and we haven't seen it all that much during this postseason, there is nothing more beautiful to watch -- or more lethal for opponents. The Game 7 win against Indiana is an example. Big, athletic and explosive, the Heat create turnovers and turn them into highlight reel-type dunks better than anybody. But the Spurs are a different animal than any team Miami has faced. Intelligent, quick, accurate and poised, San Antonio whips the ball around, passes up a good shot for a better one. When Memphis took away the Spurs' vaunted 3-point shot, Tony Parker and company used backdoor cuts to win. Miami couldn't contain Dallas' passing offense in a 2011 Finals loss, and they'll be hard-pressed to slow the Spurs. 2. Do the Spurs need to get more from Manu Ginobili or do the Heat need more from Dwyane Wade? Both stars have not had stellar postseasons. Wade has played thro ...
Heat fans lets talk basketball its open session. I'll kick it off. I don't think Tim Duncan, Splitter will give us much trouble as Hibbert and West. So many analyst saying LeBron will have to guard Tony Parker but personally I believe Norris Cole will do an good job on him so LeBron wont have too. I also believe D-Wade will an easier series guarding that only jump shooter Green. So what do you all think???
I personally really want to see the spurs beat the heat in 6. I'm not a heat hater or anything I just really want Tim Duncan to get one last ring with Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. They deserve it. Heat can go for the title next year and probably win it but this is this Spurs team last chance -Ducky
We beat the stubborn Pacers in the Eastern Conference final and will now go for the gusto again. This is the third NBA final we are playing over the last three years(!). We have LeBron, Dwayne and Ray Allen they have Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. It will be an interesting final.
Manu Ginobili. Trouble. Tony Parker. Trouble. Tim Duncan. DISASTER. Hope you can make it through the tornado my friend. I know Michael Jordan could.Easily.
The Spurs aren’t old... Go ahead and call the San Antonio Spurs old. -Associated Press You’ll hear that their pre-game meal has an early-bird special, that their biggest problem in the Finals is that the games are scheduled after their bedtime. -Phil Taylor of Sports Illustrated The core of this team appears not to have changed since the Nixon administration. You half expect if you opened Tim Duncan’s passport, you’d find his age listed as 00. -Lynn Zinser of The New York Times Don’t believe the narrative. The NBA’s oldest playoff team is not sitting home and waiting for the Finals to begin. It’s playing the Pacers tonight. Tim Duncan (37), Manu Ginobili (35) and Tony Parker (31) are old. The Spurs are not. They start Kawhi Leonard (21) and Danny Green (25), and Leonard is the third-youngest player to start in these playoffs (behind Evan Fournier and Harrison Barnes).

Aside from Jordan and whomever and maybe Isiah and Dumars, can you think of a better backcourt than Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. Trust me I'm no Spurs loyalist but to say any backcourt tandem are better than them is kidding themselves.
The Spurs take Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals over the Grizzlies 104-93 in Overtime. Tony Parker led San Antonio with 26 points, Tim Duncan added 24 points and 10 rebounds, and Manu Ginobili had 19 points. Game 4 is Monday, you can catch it on the Horn with pregame beginning at 7:30, tip off at 8.
Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan. That is what I am thinking about.
Chris Paul averaged 16.9 points and 9.7 assists while Tony Parker averaged 20 points and 7.6 assists per game this season. How is Paul a First Team All NBA member and Parker isn't?
Congrats to Tony Parker and Timmy Duncan. Awesome SPURS players...and Manu Ginobili, too. The BEST Trio in the NBA...PERIOD!
News: Tony Parker was limping noticeably out of the locker room last night. He will have an MRI on his calf. It's more of a checkup and precautionary thing than an actual injury. He said its the worst bone bruise he has ever had. Good news: He has 3 days to get better. I'll say it again: IT'S NOT SERIOUS. Manu Ginobili will not appeal the Flagrant 1 call - says it is his first one ever and does not expect another. Manu: "Three sets of eyes saw it on replay, so it must have been a flagrant." Bill Simmons: "As the chairman of the "Tim Duncan is the best player of his generation" committee, I'm ineligible for any "You hate the Spurs!" theories. " -Cole
The Real big 3 Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili we was doing it way before the Heat ring
For the eighth time in their Spurs careers, Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan will coach and play in a Western Conference Finals after a 94-82 win over Golden State to win their series, 4-2. Duncan had a team high of 19 points, even though he sat for the final three plus minutes of the 4th Quarter. Tony Parker nailed two gigantic three pointers to keep San Antonio in front. Parker was 3 for 16 shooting and Manu Ginobili shot 1 for 6 and scored only 5 points. The Spurs had five players score in double figures, as they hit seven three pointers to Golden State's four and made 21 of 25 free throws. Steph Curry had 22 points on 10 of 25 shooting and super sub Jarrett Jack scored 15 points. Golden State was not able to make it count with their passing as the Spurs had a 27-18 advantage in assists. The darlings of the playoffs did not have a productive shooting night from Curry's Splash Brother, Klay Thompson, who shot 4 for 12. The Western Conference Finals start Sunday afternoon as the Memphis Grizzlies open up on ...

What team has the best backcourt in the NBA? Here are my nominees: Warriors (Steph Curry and Klay Thompson) Bucks (Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis) Nuggets (Ty Lawson and Andre Iguodala) Spurs (Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili) Who else? -Zack
Every time I watch a Lakers game I always wonder "what's gonna happen with the Lakers when Kobe Bryant retire" honestly that's all they have.when Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili retire it will be sad I will cry and I will miss them because I love them, but Spurs still have future with Tony Parker and all the new guys and most important thing we have the best coach Gregg Popovich.
Josh Smith rumors wont go away... "San Antonio could emerge as a potential landing spot for Smith, according to an Eastern Conference GM. With Smith’s expiring contract, it is believed the Spurs wouldn’t have to surrender much in return — and that coach Gregg Popovich and stars Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili would be able to keep the sometimes-difficult Smith in line." -Cole Credits to projectspurs.com
The Spurs don't miss a beat when Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili are out of the lineup. Why is that? It's thanks to an offensive system that keeps defenders honest with constant motion.
Coach Pop says Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili are available tonight against the Cavs and looks for them to go.
No Tim Duncan, no Manu Ginobili, no Tony Parker, no Stephen Jackson and no coach Gregg Popovich, SA Spurs still best
Basketball Spurs top Bulls without injured trio The San Antonio Spurs protected their NBA-best record with an impressive 103-89 victory over the Chicago Bulls despite missing three top players through injury. Tony Parker (knee), Tim Duncan (knee) and Manu Ginobili (hamstring) were all scratched from the game but the Spurs leaned on a career-best 26 points from Kawhi Leonard and 18 from Danny Green to tame the Bulls. San Antonio clung to a slim 76-75 edge in the fourth before running off a 19-5 spurt to close the door on Chicago. The Spurs (41-12) had lately been relying on the brilliant play of All Star Parker who covered for his ailing team-mates and even as he too joined the injured group with a swollen knee, San Antonio claimed the win to stay atop the NBA. Nate Robinson scored 20 points to pace the Bulls while Joakim Noah added seven and 15 rebounds for the home team which faded down the stretch. Chicago (30-21) has now lost three of four.
San Antonio Spurs injury report: Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker (right knee contusion) and Stephen Jackson (personal business) are out for tonight's game against the Chicago Bulls.
Something for you to ponder: Within the next (at most) four years, some of the players who have been faces and superstars of the NBA for years will all be retired. I.e. Tim Duncan, Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili etc. and we've already seen some stars leave, I.e. Shaq, Allen Iverson, Yao Ming, Tracy Mcgrady etc. So my question is, where are the new superstars? LeBron, Durant, CP3, and Rose still have long careers ahead of them, but who will be taking over the NBA next? Steph Curry, Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, is he even in the NBA yet?-Brandon
