Spurs’ Team Selfie Takes Twitter By Storm

By Nick Margiasso IV

Hey, Oscars … anything you can do, the San Antonio Spurs can do better. Tuesday afternoon, the Western Conference’s top-seeded squad took a cue from last month’s now infamous and star-studded selfie posted by daytime talk show celeb Ellen DeGeneres at the aforementioned award show, posting one of their own to kick off the team’s upcoming fan night festivities.

So, eat your heart out Ellen and friends!

Tim Duncan Will Only Talk About Boris Diaw

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Spurs forward Tim Duncan has a reputation for being something of a boring hoops robot — he is a man without emotion or feeling who cares only about playing perfect basketball. In reality, Duncan is an interesting dude with a funny, dry sense of humor. Not that he displays it very often.

Which is why I really like this interview Duncan did following the Spurs win against Dallas on Wednesday, in which Duncan randomly decided he would only answer questions about Spurs reserve Boris Diaw.

Boris Diaw And Patty Mills Attempt Karaoke

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The San Antonio Spurs organization is known for taking a no-nonsense approach to basketball: They win and they go home. Or! Maybe they win and then head to their local karaoke bar, where, say, Patty Mills and Boris Diaw grab a couple of mics and croon a version of The Fugees’ cover of “Killing Me Softly.” There’s nothing soft about the Spurs’ version. Take it to the bridge, Patty…

Boris Diaw Adds Flair To Harlem Shake

by Zettler Clay IV

Just when you thought the Harlem Shake was dead and buried, another athlete takes a stab at it. Earlier, Boris Diaw tweeted his contribution to the cultural meme and whadayaknow…this piece of brilliance happens:

Things we have learned today:

1) When Boris Diaw isn’t on the other end of Gregg Popovich’s glare and exhortations, he has time to deliver an original take on a (now) unoriginal craze.

2) Popovich is probably thrilled by this video.

3) Everything looks five times cooler when depicted through legos and stop motion.

The boys in Miami, Inside crew and thousands of videos have joined the fun. Executive producer Diaw not only gets a pass for being late to the party, but wins extra points because, well, these are legos in stop motion (see No. 3).

It’s clear from this production that Diaw has a penchant for the ornate. If this is any indication of his creativity, I might find myself rooting for more Spurs off days.
