The San Antonio Spurs Tip Off Their Season Tonight with a Home Game Against the Memphis Grizzlies

No, head coach Greg Popovich did not retire, nor did veterans Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili.  Along with Tony Parker (Pictured on the Left), the trio is back to try and grab that elusive NBA championship that escaped them last season at the hands of the Miami Heat.

 ”I’m so excited to start with the Spurs and try to win a championship,” Parker said when training camp opened. “I get another opportunity to get Timmy out with a championship. I’m ready to go.”  Tony Parker has emerged as not only the leader of the San Antonio Spurs, but also one of the premier point guards in the NBA.  His performance in the post-season last year proved this and had some anyalists saying that he may be the the best at his position.

That brings us to tonight’s opener.  The Memphis Grizzlies come to the AT&T Center in San Antonio as they are trying to build off another playoff run.  For Greg Popovich and company the main thing tonight and the rest of the season will be staying healthy.  With the age of their core players, that will prove to be key if they want to make a deep run to another NBA Finals.

Tonight the starting lineup will most likely look something like this, Tony Parker at PG, Marco Belinelli at SG, Kawhi Leonard SF, Tim Duncan at PF, and Tiago Splitter at C.  Tip off for tonight’s season opener is set for 7:30 pm from the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
