Been living in San Antonio since 1995 (I was 12 at that time) and have had nothing but love and respect for the Spurs despite the fact that I am also a die hard Orlando Magic fan (1st team I got into when I started watching NBA ball more consistently in 1993). Throughout the Spurs history, they have played a brand of basketball that I just enjoy and feel how the game should truly be played and I just feel close to them. It also helps that I've been lucky to meet and learn basketball from the great and late Mike Mitchell (former Spur) when I was in the 9th grade, my mom dated Malik Rose for a brief period when he was with the Spurs, met David Robinson at a downtown convention in SA when we first moved into the city, etc.

Normally I would go to Spurstalk (not for the faint of heart :lol:) and lurk there but the site is a mess right now and it's next to impossible to access on normal browsers (can only access on my mobile browser now). Definitely want to be more active on this board just like I am on the Magic board so I say hello to everyone and am just elated on how the Spurs handled their business last night against the Rockets!


Welcome! We will definitely accept you! Even though your a Magic fan! :wink:

Look forward to seeing you around!

Loyal Spurs fan here since 5/11/2017. Originated from Oklahoma City Thunder but after a trainwreck end in the playoffs, we took stowaway on the Spurs. Beat the Warriors! :beer:

Hello all the way from Norway! I am 24 years old, and currently in the last year of law school.
My older brother is the reason i first became a basketball fan, And i started following the NBA about 6 years ago in the start i remember following multiple teams, but as i learned more about the game, i just fell in love with the way the spurs where playing it. It was so low-ego and high class, unlike any other team. As far as my favorite player goes its Kawhi Leonard. He is just so humble and such a hard worker.

Anyways, i've been lurking around here for about a year now, and i am really glad i finally decided to sign up. There aren't many basketball fans where i live, let alone spurs fans. So i look forward to having someone to discuss the games with . Just hope i can find time to be active on here. I do catch almost every game (think i missed like 8 last year). However i watch the replay for the most of them because of the different time zones.

Looking forward to getting to know y'all!

But hey, I'm here to learn.
As of why I am picking the Spurs? well, mainly because of those H-E-B Spurs commercials.

Fellow Rossonero!!!
Very glad to find you here. Hope to see you around here more often. Forza Milan and GO SPURS GO!!!

Excellent to make your acquaintance, JLM! We're glad you're here and we hope you stick around a long time.

I have a cousin who lives in Norway; she's a chemist and her husband hails from there, so that's where they moved. I don't talk to her very often, but she seems to really enjoy it.

So, where does everyone post? It's pretty dead in here. Made a couple of threads, but they're gone?
As an aside I"ve been a Spurs fan for about 10 years.

Kind of a reintroduction for me...I've been away from the boards for a while (years?).

Anyway, Spurs fan since '90. I'm old. :sleep:
