Default Buzz-Kill: Spurs are in trouble

Buzz-Kill: Spurs are in trouble

Sorry to be a buzz-kill, but the San Antonio Spurs are in trouble.

Heck, for anybody who's watched any one of the Spurs' first 11 games this season has likely had to pop more than a couple of blood-pressure pills with San Antonio playing in six contests that went until the final shot.

Through the first three weeks of the 2008-09 season, they have already seen a year's worth of highs and lows.

The lows include a 1-4 start and a deadly serious ankle injury to star point guard Tony Parker, who is likely expected out for several more weeks.

Oh, and don't forget the off-season news that Manu Ginobili, the ultimate sixth-man who's been spending his time pitching Time Warner Cable, will be out until mid-December recovering from ankle surgery.

Now, there has been positive news regarding Ginobili being slightly ahead of schedule, but even if he's cleared medically, it likely won't be until January before longtime Spurs coach Gregg Popovich puts a full load on him.

The highs have been less obvious, but they did include a career-high 55 points by Parker in the Spurs' first victory of the season -- a 129-125 overtime win over Minnesota -- as well as winning four of their last six games.

There is news breaking today that Manu could be back as early as Monday vs. Memphis. Manu says "I'm ready". So I guess this news is kinda moot. Just a bit :P
