David Banks-USA TODAY Sports Where San Antonio’s picks stand with a month until the NBA Draft Lottery. In April of 2023, the San Antonio Spurs went into the offseason with big expectations. With a generational prospect on the brink of entering the NBA, the 22-60 Spurs were at the mercy of the basketball gods and a rotating container of ping pong balls. It’s nearly a miracle (or an act of the universe, as Victor Wembanyama would say,) that San Antonio landed the number one pick. A year later and things feel much different. With their future superstar, Wembanyama, in tow, the team is tasked with ..read more

Photo by Ronald Cortes/Getty Images A year’s worth of Wembymania through the eyes of a Texan’s life. It was a muggy, early summer morning. Warm out, but not yet unbearably hot as the sun had a few more hours before it would rise. It was 48 hours after Father’s Day in June 2023. A little after four in the morning, I was groggy, and I was driving. He was in the back seat with his mom. The ride was mostly silent. I didn’t turn the radio on, so I was left with only my thoughts. And I couldn’t shake the terrible feeling that in just a few hours I would be responsible for the death of my youngest so ..read more

Photos by Michael Gonzales/NBAE via Getty Images The other side of the sun On July the 11th, 1991, the moon passed in front of and obscured the sun for almost seven minutes. It was a hot, mostly cloudless day, and one of my earliest memories. I can still hear the grass crunching underneath my feet, already brown and brittle from a summer that came months too early (it had reached 96 degrees at one point that March) and rain clouds that had often proved miserly. It was hard to fully comprehend at the time, but even then I was struck by the dimming brightness. Situated too far northward to obser ..read more

Photo by Ronald Cortes/Getty Images Best way to say so long for the summer It has been tradition for the last few years for my daughter and I to attend the Spurs final home game together. A decade ago, it was my dad and I. The tradition has now been passed on to the next generation. Attending the final home game is like going on the last day of school — it’s bittersweet and yet there’s solace in knowing that most of us will all be back in the fall. This year my father-in-law and wife joined in (he’s from Detroit which made the game a little more interesting as a family outing). We kicked off t ..read more

Photos by Michael Gonzales/NBAE via Getty Images The shorthanded Spurs show out against the Pistons in game 82. With not much more to play for than pride, the bottom-dwelling San Antonio Spurs and Detroit Pistons faced off in the last game of the NBA season. With multiple starters missing on both sides, it was the end of the bench and G League two-way players who had a chance to shine on Sunday afternoon. The Spurs young players responded with a resounding 123-95 blowout win to end the season. After a back and forth first half, the Spurs separated from Detroit with a 34-17 second quarter fille ..read more

San Antonio vs. Detroit, Final Score: Spurs end season with blowout win over Pistons, 123-95

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports Despite missing almost their entire main rotation, the Spurs went out with a bang. After a huge home win against the defending champion Denver Nuggets in what would end up being Victor Wembanyama’s season finale, the Spurs would have been forgiven for not taking the true season finale against the hapless Detroit Pistons too seriously. Instead, what was left of the depleted home team came out on fire and never gave their similarly depleted opponent a chance, ending the season with a 123-95 win to tie last season’s win total (after it looked impossible at the midwa ..read more

Open Thread: Newfound appreciation for the Play-in games

Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images The playoff picture will not solidify until the last game has been played True, the Spurs season officially ends later this afternoon, but basketball in general is pretty interesting. The play-in games incorporating the seventh through tenth seeds, along with the tightness of the upper teams, has really kept the league from locking down seeding early enough to make the final games of the season insignificant. Point in case, the reigning NBA champion Denver Nuggets lost the number one seed and home court advantage at the hands of the Spurs just two nights a ..read more
