Mavericks rookie big man Salah Mejri threw down a dunk with his team down 20 to San Antonio on Friday night. This in itself is rather unremarkable.

Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan had the only appropriate reaction for when a rookie playing in a game down 20 gives it to...

'Skies out, thighs out'; Spurs guard wants to bring back short shorts

LMA, MIA: The Spurs need LaMarcus Aldridge to be there in May

The NBA All-Star break can’t come soon enough for LaMarcus Aldridge.
