Does Ginobili still fit in San Antonio?

Spurs fans are going to have fun watching the energy being raised when Manu Ginobili and newcomer Marco Belinelli come off the bench at the same time. Just like Ginobili, Belinelli plays with reckless abandon and will give defenders trouble. The question is whether the 36-year old Ginobili can keep up with the 27-year old Belinelli.

Can Tim Duncan cheat Father Time, again?

At some point, Tim Duncan is going to wake up and his body is not going to allow him to do what his mind wants him to do. But that time apparently hasn’t come. Even the NBA’s general managers — in a poll conducted by —recently voted Duncan as the game’s best power forward. And last year the 37-year old Duncan was voted to his 14th All-Star Game.

Can Spurs forget last season?

If the Spurs plan on winning their fifth NBA title this year, then they must quickly forget about the “fifth”’ one that got away last season. The champagne was on ice in Miami, the trophy was rolled out and the ropes were surrounding the court after the Spurs led the Heat by five points with 28 seconds left in Game 6 of the Finals. But the Spurs lost Game 6 ... and Game 7 ... and the series. — Dwain Price
