Wemby Boosts Spurs TV Ratings – NBA Tracker

FEB 20 WEMBY HELPS SPURS TV RATINGS RISE The San Antonio Spurs have a lot of added intrigue this season … 7 feet, 4 inches to be exact.

Victor Wembanyama, the No. 1 overall pick from this year’s draft, has got Spurs fans excited about basketball in San Antonio once again.

According to the Sports Business Journal, Spurs ratings are up 54 percent year-over-year on Bally Sports Southwest … even with an 11-44 record through the All-Star Break.

Vaughn, 49, has the Nets at a 21-33 record before the All-Star Break, which ended in a 50-point loss on Wednesday against the Boston Celtics.

FEB 8 SOCHAN TO RISING STARS The San Antonio Spurs will have more representation at the All-Star Break next weekend.

DEC 17 SAN ANTONIO SPURS HONOR TONY PARKER during halftime of their game against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Frost Bank Center now has number nine retired with the “Hall of Fame” badge.

DEC 13 LEBRON VS. WEMBY POSTPONED After going through what Los Angeles Lakers coach Darvin Ham called an “ongoing process,” superstar forward LeBron James will be held out for his team’s first matchup against the San Antonio Spurs.

James is still nursing a calf injury, and the team opted to keep him out for the second night of a back-to-back. He will likely return to action Friday for the Lakers’ second game against the Spurs, barring any setbacks.

Victor Wembanyama and Anthony Davis will both play.

“The Extraterrestrial” and “The King” will have to wait to face off.

DEC 10 SPURS MAKE G LEAGUE SWAP The San Antonio Spurs are shuttling players back and forth from Austin and San Antonio.

Mamukelashvili scored 34 points and grabbed 22 rebounds in Saturday’s win against the Texas Legends, proving he belongs with San Antonio.

DEC 9 BLAKE WESLEY, SANDRO MAMUKELASHVILI ASSIGNED TO AUSTIN The San Antonio Spurs are making two slight roster changes.

Second-year guard Blake Wesley and third-year center Sandro Mamukelashvili are heading to the Austin Spurs ahead of their game on Saturday against the Texas Legends. The Spurs are off until Monday, so Wesley and Mamukelashvili could be back in time to be available without missing a game.
