...they turned it into a marketing slogan: Bad Boy. Reap what you sow for a repugnant brand of basketball.
Really have a problem with Isiah Thomas complaining about labels put on his Pistons. Hell, they didn't just embrace it...
Texas' Shawn Watson on the play-calling plans for Saturday's spring game: "It'll be really vanilla." So y'all come on out.
Tim Duncan, budding All-Star/MVP, sitting on the rookie/free agent bus at training camp, ready to get a workout in.
Coaches came down to find him sitting on it, told him he could go back upstairs and get some sleep. This was like his 3rd or 4th season.
Still my favorite Duncan story...can't remember full details. But it was some sort of early bus at training camp for rookies/free agents.
They're threatening to close my basketball gym for a month due to excessive cursing and fighting. Knew we shouldn't have let Tarantino play.
Dug the Billy Ocean/Huey Lewis/Lover Boy rotation at Bombay last night. It was like being at the AT&T Center all over again.
Have to wish my man Kaleb Canales, Mavs assistant, good luck. We've both come a long way from games at Martin High School in Laredo.
Two betting sites, Bovada and MyTopSportsBooks, make the Heat 2/1 favorites. Spurs 3/1 in both cases.
Tim Duncan squeezes into the Top 15 on season jersey sales at No. 14. Spurs finish No. 9 among most popular team merchandise. Per NBA.
En route pour les playoffs et Dallas ! Are you ready ? Go Spurs Go !!!
DeJuan Blair vs. the Spurs is about as interesting as the Bran story line in Game of Thrones, except there's no option to fast forward.
Les insomniaques, je sais que vous n'êtes toujours pas fatigués alors rendez vous pour les playoffs et encore de courte nuit. Merci à vous !
Pop looks like a beleaguered single dad in that picture.
...Game 5, Wednesday April 30, TBD; Game 6, Friday April 2, TBD; Game 7, Sunday May 4, TBD.
Full 1st round sked for SA/Mavs: Game 1, noon Sunday; Game 2, 7 p.m. Wednesday; Game 3, 3:30 p.m. Saturday; Game 4, 8:30 p.m. Monday...
Latest edition of Opponents Praise Spurs, starring Swaggy P: They all buy into their system...from the last person on the bench to the 1st.
Leonard on 1st round opponent, as Memphis/Dallas hung in the balance: "Doesn't matter. Still have to win four games."
Pop took no questions tonight .... http://t.co/GcgIFrvUaz
Welcome to San Antonio for Easter, Mavericks.
Classic Pop. Missed it, but apparently walked out, said the Spurs had a great RS, now I'm going to watch Memphis/Dallas and left.
Pour some wine on the block for the weirdest stat in the NBA this season: The Spurs are now 33-1 when Tiago Splitter scores at least 7 pts.
Has anybody ever written down a set list for Memphis' in-game DJ? Would love to get my hands on one...
Nick Young makes Patty Mills seem restrained.
So, Memphis is up by six with 2 mins left in the 3rd...
The Bad Boys...never has any team elicited so much rage in my 25 or so years as an NBA fan as those guys. What swine...
How 'bout this lineup: James, Joseph, Daye, Ayres, Bonner.
If Spurs are going to mount a fourth-quarter comeback, it will be with Damion James at small forward.
Gotta give Land and Elliott credit. They're announcing hard.
Lakers lead Spurs 86-75 heading to 4Q. Very important Tiago Splitter streak in serious jeopardy.
Wonder if Marco knows that he's been named the NBA's Best-Smelling Player by an anonymous Suns ballboy.
I put question marks down in my notes when I miss a play. Tonight's game is just one giant ?
As of 8:34, Spurs are starting playoffs against Dallas.
Stevie -- "I'm wearing all black, so I can express my rage" Kenny -- "I don't like it. Find a way to change yourself from me."
Spurs having a blackout on Sunday. If I didn't run a family Twitter feed, I'd post the clip of Kenny Powers and Stevie J at April's cookout.
MEANWHILE COULD WE START THE SECOND HALF IN MEMPHIS OK THANKS
Spurs are about as locked in as those Kardashian girls growing up. And I'm assuming they had super permissive parents.
Boris Diaw is shooting 39% in April, and is 0-of-4 tonight.
That's about the weirdest stat I can ever remember, and it deserves to stand for an entire season.
So there actually is something at stake tonight. Spurs are 33-0 when Splitter scores at least 7. He's got 12, but Spurs trail by 3.
As of 8:17, we're headed to a first-round series with Grizzlies. Mavs lead that game by 2 at half.
Tony Parker probably done for the night, and I'm so intensely jealous.
Dallas up 53-51 at the half in Memphis.
If only I could have laid off the post-game Whataburger...
Spurs weren't the only ones who had a great regular season. Didn't have a single cookie from the AT&T Center hospitality room.
Grizzlies holds a slim 43-41 lead over Dallas late in the 1st half in Memphis.
It's awesome first half was so fast here in SA ... but we still have to wait out MEM-DAL before there's a story to be written.
As of 7:58, Spurs' first-round opponent is Dallas.
Spurs and Lakers tied at 51 heading to halftime and I couldn't be more excited.
Maybe I should give minute-by-minute update on Spurs' 1-round opponent. As of 7:57, it's Memphis.
Dallas slips ahead in Memphis midway through 2nd quarter.
A lot riding on Grizzlies-Mavs. Either Courtyard Memphis or Marriott Dallas is going to lose my business based on the outcome.
Splitter's up to 8. Spurs haven't lost this season when he has at least seven. But this is a different kind of night ...
Kendall Marshall's beard game is strong.
Would like to think officiating crew of Jason Phillips, David Jones and Steven Anderson for not calling fouls unless someone is maimed.
If that below is indeed the record ... just off pace. Have attempted 30 combined, still four minutes left 2Q.
Hey NBA stat geeks ... any idea what the record is for most combined 3-pointers attempted in a game? Spurs-LAL firing at will.
Spurs on a 9-0 run, cutting L.A.'s lead down to oh who cares?
"Posting and toasting" -- need to figure out how to adopt this into my literary arsenal.
Patty with 7 points, 7 shots in 8 minutes.
If it's 3-point bombing night, why not Bonner? 2-team count up to 28 with 7 min. left, 1st half
Splitter just shot a semi-finger roll. Pulling out all the stops tonight.
Grizzlies lead Mavericks 29-24 after one.
Not a lot of extra passes being made tonight at the AT&T.
Grizzlies up 28-18 over Dallas as the 1st quarter winds down in Memphis. Have won 14 straight home games.
Lakers lead Spurs 33-23 after 1Q in which teams combine for 21 3-pt tries. James Naismith resurrected himself, just so he could hang himself
If the Spurs cared about winning this game (and they don't), I'd suggest not getting into a pick-up-game with team full of pick-up gamers.
This almost reminds me of the last game of Little League when everybody gets to play out of position and the fat kid plays shortstop.
Need more proof that this game means nothing? Tiago Splitter just took a 3-pointer.
Splitter takes a corner 3 with 16 seconds on the shot clock and I don't even know what to say.
Grizzlies already up 10 in the early going.
Even in a game that absolutely does not matter, Pop will call timeout to complain about poor transition defense.
Danny Green's already squeezed off a Nick Young-esque eight shots.
It's early, but Lakers and Spurs both playing like they want to save Mike D'Antoni's job.
Whatever you set the over/under on Nick Young shots tonight, I take the over.
