Spurs Down The Stretch - Part One

For whatever reason, SPAM (Spurs Peak After/At March) is not in the PtR Glossary. I found that surprising; SPAM didn't originate here, but neither did "Go Spurs Go" and it turns up in the Comments...

Applying Pop's humor principle to every NBA team

What does the league look like from a humor perspective? Which franchises are the hit shows, the edgy stand-ups, the cutting edge sketch comedies?


The (Hated) Silver and Black and the Media Message

Andrea Duke's piece for PTR was extremely interesting and thought-provoking. And I wanted to discuss the idea from that piece that the media "filters and shapes reality". It's appropriate that she...


Stupid Power Rankings: The Best Uniforms (besides the Spurs)

If there's one thing NBA fans can't get enough of, it's a Power Ranking. For those of you who don't know, a Power Ranking is an attempt to answer the question "Who's the best?" when the answer...
