Tony Parker will miss several games for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries, Need to step up by alleyoop on Thursday 28 January 2010 at 6:27 pm

The Spurs will be without starting point guard for several games with a sprained left ankle. He has played in 40 games (all starts) this season for the Spurs and he is averaging 32.2 minutes, 16.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. George Hill will move into the starting line-up to replace Parker and he is a solid player. Hill has played in 44 games (9 starts) for the Spurs this season and he is averaging 25.2 minutes, 10.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. This will hurt the Spurs some as Parker is one of the best players on the team but Hill is a solid player so they won’t fall too much.

Manu Ginobli is having a down year for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, General, Need to step up by Andrew on Monday 25 January 2010 at 1:25 pm

It looks like age and injuries are finally catching up with the 32-year-old Manu Ginobli.  He is having his least-productive season since his first year in the NBA in 2002-’03 with the Spurs.  He even had better numbers last season in a 44-game injury-plagued season.  He is only hitting 40% of his shots and 36% of his threes, while averaging 12.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 1.4 steals.  Ginobli is obviously still very effective and still looks like the old Ginobli at times, but he looks a step slower and a little hobbled this season.  That is probably why he is only getting 26.5 minutes per game this season.  Considering the few amount of minutes he is getting, he is putting up some pretty good numbers.  He has been such a good player for the Spurs the last few seasons though, that this season is almost a disappointment for the Argentina native.  Ginobli can still be one of the most dynamic and dangerous players on the court at times, and if he gets himself healthy and back in form come playoff time the Spurs will be a very dangerous team to play in the West.

The San Antonio Spurs waive Marcus Haislip

Blogged under Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Friday 22 January 2010 at 8:47 pm

The Spurs have waived forward Marcus Haislip. He played in 10 games (0 starts) for the Spurs this season and he averaged 4.4 minutes, 2.5 points and 1.0 rebound per game. Haislip has played in 89 games (8 starts) in his NBA career and he averaged 9.6 minutes, 3.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.2 assists per game. Haislip will be going to Europe to play and that is why the Spurs let him go.

The San Antonio Spurs are elated with the play of DeJuan Blair lately

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by alleyoop on Friday 22 January 2010 at 8:44 pm

20-year old power forward DeJaun Blair has really played well lately. In his last five games, Blair has played an average of 29.6 minutes per game and he is scoring 11.8 points, grabbing 13.8 rebounds, dishing out 0.2 assists and he is blocking 1.0 shot per game. Blair is also shooting 53.2% from the floor which is pretty outstanding. Blair has now played in 41 games (18 starts) this season and he is averaging 17.9 minutes, 7.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game. The Spurs will continue to give Blair big minutes as long as he is playing well.

Tony Parker is still playing well for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by alleyoop on Thursday 14 January 2010 at 6:07 pm

Starting point guard Tony Parker is struggling with a sore foot and rumors that he got offered to the Hornets as part of a package for Chris Paul. Parker has played in 33 games (all starts) for the Spurs this season and he is averaging 31.8 minutes, 17.1 points, 2.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game. I really have a hard time believing that the Spurs have put Parker on the trade block because as good as Chris Paul is, Parker is a winner and he is the perfect fit on this team. That doesn’t mean that I think Parker is better than Paul because I don’t. But, for the Spurs Parker is the right guy to lead the offense.

George “The Iceman” Gervin was an offensive machine

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by Andrew on Thursday 14 January 2010 at 8:44 am

George Gervin, better known as “The Iceman”, was one of the most prolific scorers the NBA has ever seen and he could keep his cool in the most pressure-packed situations (hence the “Iceman” nickname).  At the age of 20, he started his professional basketball career in the ABA with the Virginia Squires in the 1972-’73 season.  Gervin displayed his offensive skills right away, averaging 14.1 points as a young rookie and 23.4 points in his second season.  He joined the San Antonio Spurs (still an ABA team until the 1976 NBA merger) near the end of the 1973-’74 season and went on to play 11 more seasons for the Spurs, before playing his final year with the Chicago Bulls in the 1985-’86 season.  Gervin was silky smooth with the ball and was a clutch player who could score in bunches.  With his lanky arms and big soft hands, Gervin perfected the finger roll and it went on to be his signature shot.  In his career, Gervin averaged 25.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.0 blocks with a 50% career field goal percentage.  Despite being one of the top players in the league for over a decade, “The Iceman” never made it to an NBA Finals.  That did not diminish his outstanding career though, and he was named as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History.

Keith Bogans knows his role for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by alleyoop on Monday 11 January 2010 at 10:54 pm

Keith Bogans has been starting at shooting guard this season for the Spurs and his main job is shooting the long ball. Bogans has played in 34 games (30 starts) for the Spurs so far this season and he is averaging 20.1 minutes, 5.1 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. He is shooting well from everywhere on the floor hitting 47.6% from the floor, 42.1% from the three point line and 81.5% from the free throw line this year. Bogans gets a lot of wide open shots due to the defenses having to worry about other players and he is doing a good job of making them pay for it.

Tim Duncan is still playing at an MVP level

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, General, Steppin Up by Andrew on Thursday 7 January 2010 at 7:48 pm

Tim Duncan has been outstanding for the San Antonio Spurs once again this season.  Many thought the 33-year-old Duncan was beginning to decline, especially when it seemed like his knee problems were slowing him down.  Well, Duncan is back to 100% and his play is about as good as it has ever been.  Duncan is averaging 19.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.8 blocks.  He is playing only 31.7 minutes per game, the least in his career, but his efficiency is probably the best it has ever been.  He has led the Spurs to a 21-12 record this season and if the Spurs are healthy come playoff time, they have a great shot at bringing another Larry O’brien NBA Championship Trophy back to San Antonio.

DeJuan Blair has been solid so far for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Rookie Reports, Steppin Up by alleyoop on Thursday 7 January 2010 at 2:27 pm

PF/C DeJuan Blair has really played well when called upon by the Spurs. He has played in 33 games (10 starts) for the Spurs this season and he is averaging 16.8 minutes, 6.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. Blair was a outstanding second round pick for the Spurs and he will be a starter in the near future for the team as he will make every team that passed on him pay for it.

The San Antonio Spurs need Richard Jefferson to step up

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Need to step up by alleyoop on Tuesday 5 January 2010 at 1:17 am

The Spurs need starting small forward Richard Jefferson to quit being so shy with the basketball. He has played in 32 games (all starts) this season for the Spurs and he is averaging 31.4 minutes, 13.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. The Spurs need Jefferson to step up offensively and be the third option behind Tim Duncan and Tony Parker because he should be averaging around 17 points per game.
