Watch This Tongue-In-Cheek Animated Short: “Spurs Special Forces”

Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan

We’d always assumed the San Antonio Spurs were really a rag-tag band of elite Special Forces. Gregg Popovich is obviously a spy after earning a Soviet Studies BA from the Air Force Academy and flirting with the C.I.A. Plus, there’s no way they can pass so well without some serious training usually reserved for the Green Berets.

Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol

The Memphis Grizzlies led the short-handed San Antonio Spurs by 23 points in the second quarter and 17 points in the third. But Gregg Popovich’s team doesn’t feel sorry for itself, and certainly doesn’t play the scoreboard. Thank god – we’d have been robbed of an all-time classic if it did. In a game containing multiple game-tying buzzer-beaters and much more clutch shot-making, the Grizzlies beat the Spurs 117-116 after three wildly entertaining overtimes. Read More »
