Just realized being a Blackhawks fan must be kinda like cheering for the Spurs
You can blame the Clippers all you want. But they eliminated the Spurs and themselves. For doing both, they're my Playoff heroes!
The San Antonio Spurs play a balanced game, but people forget those guys have theee future Hall of Famers man. ATL doesn't. Difference.
Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer says Spurs coach and former boss Gregg Popovich is in Cleveland. "He's been a good friend and a good resource."
Initially I advised the Spurs fan not to bother. Warned him it might not end well.
Gregg Poppovich sighting in Clevleand. Spurs fan beside me eventually worked up the nerve to ask for a picture. Pop graciously agreed.
Part of me is glad the Spurs didn't win a playoff series. Running into the Warriors wouldn't have been pretty.
Here's a fun hypothetical matchup: Last year's Spurs vs. this year's Warriors. That series is a coin flip.
Wish there was a way to petition the Spurs or Clippers back into the playoffs.
The series I wish we had gotten a chance to see was Warriors-Spurs. Felt all season like that was the team with a real shot at beating GSW.
Terrence Ross underwent surgery yesterday to remove bone spurs from his left ankle. He played through the ankle injury late in the season
Terrence Ross underwent surgery yesterday in Van Nuys, California to remove bone spurs and loose bodies from his left ankle.
Left ankle surgery for Raptors Terrence Ross for bone spurs, loose particles. Will rehab in Toronto and is, like us all, day-to-day
So, by that metric, the 2006-07 Spurs are the worst Spurs team to win a title and last year’s Spurs were the best.

I think you can win a title w/o a superstar. I just think it's near impossible to win a series w/o 1 vs. THIS superstar. Except, well, Spurs
The Hawks went from “Spurs East” to just like everybody else in the East. Sad to see them reach this point.
It's the Cavs playing as if they're Spurs 2.0...
This is how Tim Duncan retires [Spurs training camp] Pop: "Where's Tim?" Parker: "I don't know" Splitter: "Tim?" Kawhi: "Oh" *scene*
FWIW, it sucks that the Spurs couldn't advance a few rounds. But they were gassed and Warriors-Rockets is entertaining, too.
This Warriors-Rockets series is a freaking blast. Decent consolation for the Spurs being ousted in the first round.
Last year's Spurs were phenomenal. This Warriors team is the greatest basketball team I can remember watching.
Babcock says one of the coaches he looked at as a comparable for negotiations was Gregg Popovich of SA Spurs.
All-NBA Third Team: Blake Griffin (Clippers) Tim Duncan (Spurs) DeAndre Jordan (Clippers) Klay Thompson (Warriors) Kyrie Irving (Cavaliers)
remember when everyone said Hawks reminded them of Spurs? what happened to that team? have hardly had a possession with 3 passes
Question of the series: Can Hawks replicate Spurs? No. A/C won’t go out at Philips like it did at AT&T. Philips is an electricity company.
That was a fun trip down memory lane. About once a month, I get stuck in a Spurs championship wormhole. I can never get enough of it.
