San Antonio Rumors
In a span of eight days, Golden State has 30-point wins over Cleveland, Chicago and San Antonio. Curry scored 37 points and hit six 3-pointers in three scintillating quarters Monday night, and the reigning champions showed they still rule the West by routing the Spurs 120-90. ”No moment’s too big, obviously,” Curry said. ”We know this is just another regular-season game, but there was some hype around it. Every time we have an opportunity to prove who we are and take another step in the journey, we’re ready for it. It wasn’t always that way. This core has been together for a while and understands how to mentally prepare for nights like this.”
Thousands of San Antonians stood in the rain at Alamo Plaza to see the 31st Annual H-E-B Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, and this year’s tree was given a Spurs theme in recognition of the organization’s impact on the city of San Antonio. “H-E-B has been sponsoring the tree every year, and we thought this would be a great way to honor the Spurs,” said Dya Campos, H-E-B’s director of public affairs. “It isn’t just about what the team does on the court, but it also reflects what the Spurs do for the community.”
The San Antonio Spurs today announced that the team has waived Jimmer Fredette, Youssou Ndoye, Keifer Sykes and Deshaun Thomas. San Antonio’s training camp roster now stands at 16 players.
A Beatles tribute band will provide the entertainment at next year’s San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame ceremony. But given the class of 2016’s makeup, a band from Cole High School might be a better fit. Shaquille O’Neal, one of the most dominant big men in NBA history, headlines the inductees, and he’ll be joined by the Cole Cougars team he powered to the 1989 Class 3A state basketball championship.
