San Antonio Spurs fans, pick up a book and check out some of the top reads based on this franchise.
With an early exit from the NBA playoffs, San Antonio Spurs fans must resort to watching the rest of the postseason, including LeBron James singlehandedly leading the Cleveland Cavaliers into the second round and the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets on a collision course for the Western Conference Finals.
Eventually, televised basketball will disappear (unless you watch the Summer League) until the fall, so Spurs fans will need something hoop-related to focus on before then.
Amidst the summer’s hot weather, why not pick up a book, go outside and read some of the best books on the Silver and Black? There are a handful of works to check out whether or not you have a rooting interest in this team:
- 100 Things Spurs Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die (100 Things…Fans Should Know) by Mike Monroe. If you want to know more about the Spurs or brush up on their history, this could be the book for you.
- Spurs Nation: Major Moments in San Antonio Basketball by Staff of the San Antonio Express-News: As the title says, it’s the biggest moments that shaped this franchise’s history.
- Tim Duncan: Team-First Superstar by J.R. Wilco: Wilco, who’s part of the staff at Pounding the Rock, covered not only Tim Duncan’s NBA history but his role as a teammate on classic teams.
- Dynasty: The San Antonio Spurs’ Timeless 2014 Championship by Jesse Blanchard: If you want a story on most recent title win in Spurs history, this is the book for you. San Antonio toppled the Miami Heat in five games to win the 2014 championship.
These are just some books for NBA fans to read on the Spurs this offseason. With six months to spare, not including the NBA Draft and free agency, this can pass some time before the 2018-19 season starts in the fall.
