San Antonio Spurs

A commentary by Marisela Barrera, a San Antonio writer and performer. 

As a kid growing up in Alamo, Texas, San Antonio was my Disneyland.

The Spurs are getting set for a do or die Game 6 against Oklahoma City tonight.  San Antonio trails the Thunder 3-2 in their second round playoff series. 

John Bassett feels good about tonight's game.

“I’ve got confidence that they can pull it off tonight,” Bassett says. “The team realizes this is a really great opportunity to make last run with potentially the last generation of this team, so we really want to see them do well.”

Fan Lauren Jones wants better officiating.

It was Christmas in July last Thursday when the moratorium on signing free agents lifted and Portland Trailblazer LaMarcus Aldridge signed a new max contract with the San Antonio Spurs.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s office is investigating what could be a widespread operation to scam fans of the San Antonio Spurs and other NBA teams with expensive counterfeit tickets being sold on Craigslist.

Investigators believe the counterfeiters may be ripping off Houston and Dallas fans with the same bogus tickets that they tricked fans into buying for Spurs games. 

The San Antonio Spurs take on the Denver Nuggets tonight in the Alamo City, Texas. The Spurs have won five NBA Championships in the past 16 years.

But it’s another award the team just picked up that we want to focus on. The M.I.T. Sloan Sports Analytics Conference named the Spurs the “Best Analytics Organization” and gave team manager R.C. Buford a lifetime achievement award.
