San Antonio Spurs Season Preview: Kawhi Leonard Taking Over Completely

Posted on 14 Sep, 2016, by in NBA

Last season, the San Antonio Spurs did everything right, and still ended up with nothing. It could very well happen this year, although an improved Kawhi Leonard, a more comfortable LaMarcus Aldridge and the addition of Pau Gasol will hopefully prevent another early playoff exit at the hands of an inferior team.

For the first time in 20 years, the San Antonio Spurs are entering a season without Tim Duncan as part of the team.

The first round is over, finally. The Conference semifinals can begin, although some have already begun.

NBA Rumors – Warriors & Spurs Not Changed by One Regular Season Game

Posted on 21 Mar, 2016, by in NBA

The San Antonio Spurs needed that win over the Golden State Warriors a lot more than the NBA champions needed it. Sure, it showed what Kawhi Leonard can do when he’s not chasing around Stephen Curry, and maybe the best player in the league can be stopped with the right kind of defense. But once the dust settles, one thing needs to be made clear: It was one regular season game. More

Posted on 15 Jan, 2016, by in NBA

A loss to the San Antonio Spurs isn’t the end of the world for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but it once again highlighted an important point about LeBron James and his team’s attempt to win an NBA championship: Without Kyrie Irving playing well, it’s going to be difficult for them overcoming the best teams in the NBA.

The San Antonio Spurs made some interesting changes and additions during the offseason in order to make another run at the NBA title.
