When the Kevin Durant sweepstakes began, the San Antonio Spurs know their chances were not great. But in the Spurs way of doing things, they were again silently looking at Bulls center Pau Gasol and hoping that maybe this was the year they could finally land the Spanish former third overall draft pick.
Leaving the Spurs thus far are David West (who is joining KD in Golden State) and Boris Diaw, who was traded to the Utah Jazz to make roster and cap space room for Gasol.

Must face the Jazz, Warriors and Nuggets on the road first
The San Antonio Spurs have nothing left to prove in the regular season so whether or not they put their A- game effort remains to be seen. Keeping their home record at zero losses would seem to be the more important than going all out to win on the road.
Not that the team will not play at a high level, it could very well be the Spurs B team against the very same , especially against the Warriors, since they have given up a game at home now. Records are really unimportant to the Spurs collective where the big prize is always the only goal.
“We don’t pay attention, nor are allowed to care,” San Antonio guard Danny Green said. “It’s fun to be a part of something big, or be a part of history or make history, but we’re looking at the bigger pictures.”
For the Spurs during the Popovich era, it has always been about the title, but even Tim Duncan hitting his 1000th victory with the teams next win is something to talk about. He already owns the record for most victories with one team.
“He’s got a lot of miles on his body, and he still comes in day-in and day-out, first guy in the gym, last guy to leave,” Green said. “Same routine every day, lot of energy, great focus. It’s tough to do, and I don’t know how he continues to stay motivated playing 20 years and winning so many championships.”

It’s that time of the year again for the San Antonio Spurs. That special month of February when their home court is turned into a huge holding pen for the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. To date, the road trip has been used to firmly gel the team and get all healthy bodies on the right page and ready for the last portion of the NBA season. With a 71-26 “Rodeo Road Trip” record, the Spurs have never fallen under .500. This season, though may prove to be the hardest to date – since 2003. This season, the trip includes stops in Toronto (lost), Indiana (won), Detroit, LA Clippers, Golden State, Portland, Utah, Phoenix. There is every reason to believe that the Spurs will have trouble. On the other hand, the Spurs thrive on the trip…so let’s play the games!
