When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.

The NBA's April Fools joke on the Spurs


So, there's a big game this Thursday evening, eh? If you're thinking it'll be a good litmus test of where San Antonio and Oklahoma City are right now, you ought to think again.

JRW and Phil Naessens talk about the win streak

Winning streaks are a beautiful thing. Somewhat less attractive: the Spurs challenging week ahead. Phil and I talk about both on today's show.

JRW & Phil contrast the Spurs & the Knicks

What's the difference between the Spurs and the Knicks? It should be obvious but this is a must listen.

Go to Reddit today to ask JRW anything (AJA?)


Here's your chance to ask whatever you'd like to about the Spurs, their championship chances, what it's like to cover an NBA team, manage an SB Nation blog, edit constantly, write occasionally, be married to an artist and raise five kids in TX.

Do Spurs fans have a persecution complex?

Do Spurs fans have a persecution complex? I answer Phil's question and more on the Phil Naessens Show

GIF Breakdown: Spurs vs. Chicago Bulls

The Spurs started out the game on fire and built a lead against the Bulls that grew to 32 points. It was Tony early, Manu in the middle and lots of bench in the second half. There are a lot of fun plays to enjoy in this edition of GIF Breakdown.

Fraternizing w/the enemy: JRW & Dave on SA vs POR

In the latest in a long series of conversations about Spurs vs Trail Blazers, Dave Deckard and J.R. Wilco discuss Portland having SA's number, the Spurs' rise, the Blazers' swoon, and how Aldridge always has his way against San Antonio.

JRW and Phil Naessens talk Spurs over Heat

Signature win over Miami and Pop's coaching philosophy were on tap on today's Phil Naessens Show

GIF: Mills from WAY downtown against Miami

Patty showing off the range in the fourth against the Heat.

GIF: Kawhi Leonard takes Lebron James one-on-one

Kawhi's offense was on display in the 3rd quarter as he took James off the dribble from the 3-point line, and got into the paint for a pretty little floater.

Heat expert prefers Heat to meet OKC not Spurs

We might have a regular-season meeting between San Antonio and Miami without anyone being held out for health issues -- or coaching caprice. Surya Frenandez of Hot Hot Hoops and J.R. Wilco discuss all things Spurs vs Heat.

Tony will play tonight

Per the Spurs' official release: Tony Parker will play in tonight's game vs. Dallas after missing the past six games.

Kawhi, Rodeo Road Trips and the Phoenix Suns


J.R. Wilco explains the rodeo road trip and much more on the Phil Naessens Show

Kawhi Leonard is back

Our long Alamo City nightmare is over: Kawhi's hand is now healed and he will return to the court tonight against the Pistons.

JRW and Phil talk Austin Daye & Parker's injuries

Phil and I discuss Austin Daye and Tony Parker

Who's on San Antonio's Mt. Rushmore?

There's been a lot of talk in the NBA recently about who belongs on the league's Mt. Rushmore. But when it comes to the Spurs, it's easy pickings.

J.R. Wilco talks fake trades with Phil Naessens

Phil and I talk fake trades, rumors, the media and more

Belinelli & Splitter questionable against Bobcats

In San Antonio's current game of musical chairs with injuries, Marco Belinelli and Tiago Splitter are questionable for Saturday night's game against the Charlotte Bobcast. But Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Boris Diaw are available.

JRW talks about Duncan's All Star snub with Phil

Tim's snub, the defense is back and Phil boos Pop.

Belinelli to compete in the three point contest

Following in the footsteps of Matt Bonner, Marco will go to New Orleans to represent the Spurs on ASW.

Gregg Popovich's most deadpan interview yet

David Aldridge has had difficult interviews with Pop before -- the "Happy" one comes to mind -- but this time things go quite well. Until they take a turn for the ironic once Aldridge's done asking questions.

GIF Breakdown: Spurs at Wizards

Game 2 of the Rodeo Road Trip took the Spurs through the nation's capitol to take on the Wizards. Once again, San Antonio was down by a large margin in the 2nd half. Once again, they came back to win ... but it took two of overtime periods this time.

Tim's All-Star case is championed by ... the NYT?

Tim Duncan wasn't chosen to represent the Western Conference an All-Star, and Harvey Araton of the New York Times is outraged.

JRW & Phil discuss the Spurs' most difficult month

It's been a rough January and I'm really looking forward to February and a healthy Spurs team

Manu out 3-4 weeks with strained hamstring

Manu played. Manu dunked. Manu strained his hamstring. Now Manu will miss 3-4 weeks.

Doris Burke talks to PtR about interviewing Pop

Here's an exclusive interview with Doris Burke, ABC's sideline reporter for the NBA Finals as well as a host of other commentating jobs, as she discusses her more than 20 years of experience as an NBA reporter, and shares what it's like to interview

JRW and Phil discuss all of the Spurs' injuries


Kawhi is out and that is the main topic I talked about on Phil's show today. In fact I think that's all we talked about but I think Phil would like to talk about the Spurs less than stellar record against teams with playoff aspirations.

Kawhi Leonard out 3-4 weeks with broken hand

Thankfully, young bones heal quickly.

Spurs waive Malcolm Thomas

After Kawhi Leonard's hand was injured last night, the Spurs cleared space on their roster by waiving Malcolm Thomas. Expect another signing -- or perhaps even a trade -- soon.
