The Texas Tribune and other national and local news organizations on Tuesday asked a federal court to unseal a search warrant used in the January FBI raid of U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar’s Laredo home and campaign office. The raid was a remarkable move by the executive branch on a sitting lawmaker given the search’s proximity to Cuellar’s competitive March 1 primary. The details of the raid have not been officially released, but Cuellar’s attorney, Joshua Berman, has said that the congressman is not the target of a federal investigation.

1 day ago Open Thread: Spurs 50 for 50, Number 44- Willie Anderson

One trademark of the San Antonio Spurs has been their culture and their consistency. The keys to those qualities lie in their players. Always noted for development as well as being ahead of the curve on scouting international players, the Spurs way has made the franchise one of the most successful of all time. As we look back on the Silver & Black, we recognize the top 50 players in Spurs history. Each day, we will move up the countdown. 44- Willie Anderson Just before being drafted in the summer of 1988, Willie Anderson won a bronze medal in the 1988 Summer Olympics, alongside future Spurs teammate, David Robinson. He was drafted 10th overall by the San Antonio Spurs and had a strong first season, averaging 18.6 points per game, a career best. As a result, Anderson was selected to the 1989 NBA All-Rookie Team. He averaged double-digits in five of seven season with the Silver & Black, but was unfortunately taken by the Toronto Raptors in the 1995 expansion draft. Anderson was a solid small forward and gave support in those years where the Spurs were building around David Robinson. It would have been interesting to see what the Spurs could have made with Anderson had the Raptors not taken him away during the expansion.

2 days ago Spurs 50 for 50, Number 43: Speedy Claxton

This year the Spurs are celebrating their 50th season in San Antonio. There have been many highs and a few lows. One trademark of the San Antonio Spurs has been their culture and consistency. The keys to those qualities lie in their players. Always noted for development as well as being ahead of the curve on scouting international players, the Spurs way has made them one of the most successful organizations of all time. As we look back on the Silver and Black, we recognize the top 50 players in franchise history. Each day, we will move up the countdown. 43 - Speedy Claxton In the 2002-2003 season, the Silver and Black finished the season with 60 wins, and were looking for their second championship. The team was loaded with talent, with second-year French point guard and Argentinian rookie Manu Ginobili being added to the twin towers of Tim Duncan and David Robinson. The Admiral was in his final season, but he still had a commanding presence in the paint, and Tim Duncan was in his prime. But the most important player in the 2003 Finals against the New Jersey Nets might have been a player who only spent one season on the Spurs, and averaged 5.8 pts/game in 30 games during the regular season. Tony Parker was matched up against Jason Kidd in the finals, and the Spurs romped to an easy 101-89 Game 1 win over the Nets in San Antonio as Tony played almost 40 minutes and scored 16, with his backup, second-year player Speedy Claxton, playing about 8 minutes and scoring 2 points. In game 2, Tony scored 26, but the overall Spurs defense stalled and the Nets took the second game 87-85 behind Kidd’s 30 point effort, stealing home court advantage in the series. Claxton once again sat on the pine. Game 3 was a Spurs win, with Parker the game’s leading scorer with 26 points, and Speedy stuck to the bench as the Spurs reclaimed home advantage with a 84-79 win in New Jersey. The Spurs championship run almost came a cropper in game 4 as the Nets found a way to shut down Tony Parker, holding him to just 3 points in an plodding 77-76 win for the Jersey swamp denizens. But Gregg Popovich, as he often does, had a response to the New Jersey defensive strategy. The fifth and sixth games saw increased minutes minutes for Speedy Claxton, relieving some of the pressure on Tony Parker. Both Claxton and Parker were second-year players, but at 25 years old, Claxton’s life experience might have given him a little more resilience than the 21 year old Frenchman. If I may, I’d like to digress a bit on the nature of memory and narratives. My memory of that series was that Tony Parker crumbled under the pressure and Speedy Claxton took over and saved the team. But after researching the game logs, that’s not really what happened. Except for a bad statistical performance in game 4 caused by a swarming Nets defense, Tony had a phenomenal series. The real story was that Popovich changed the rotations to limit the time that Tony was matched up against the taller Kidd, and gave those minutes to Claxton, who rose to the occasion to turn in solid performances in games 5 and 6, while Parker also played well within the new strategy. Tony played more minutes than Claxton in every game of the 2003 finals, but Speedy’s impact on the outcome was undeniable, without him relieving Parker, there very likely wouldn’t have been a riverboat parade in 2003. Speedy Claxton was just a bit player in the history of the Silver and Black, but his part was a key one. He took over the role that Popovich assigned to him and performed admirably, bringing the O’Brien Trophy back to the Alamo City. After the 2003 season, Speedy moved onto the Warriors and ended up playing for a total of 6 teams in his 9 year pro career. He never won another championship, but his role in 2003 Spurs championship will never be forgotten. Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images Next up: A 6’7” swingman nicknamed Chill. Welcome to the Thread.
