Tim Duncan
Slam Duncan O's, named for the Spurs' star power forward Tim Duncan (211-F/C-76, college: Wake Forest), officially hit H-E-B stores Monday and demand is expected to be high after early samples of the product released last month were listed for sale on Ebay, according to company executives.
It took two hours to sell out the first 500 boxes of the limited edition honey nut toasted cereal with chocolate puffs, which were accidentally stocked on the shelves of one store Friday, said Cory Basso, H-E-B's vice president of marketing and advertising.
H-E-B is producing up to 400,000 boxes of the cereal, which touts Duncan's 19-year record with the Spurs. The supermarket chain is limiting purchases to six per customer.
Basso said he anticipates the product line will be sold out after three months. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Tim Duncan Foundation.
'Once they're gone, they're gone,' Basso said. 'There won't be a reprint. And, we're doing that to keep it limited edition because we think that makes it more special.'
Duncan, who retired in July, won't be appearing with current Spurs players in future commercials, Basso said, but has filmed another ad to accompany the cereal rollout that will begin airing Monday and is on the hook for at least two more before the end of 2017.

Royce O'Neale was built to be the stopper the Jazz need in series vs. Thunder - 2 days ago
By Tony Jones INTERVIEW Oklahoma City Unknowingly, Royce O'Neale (198-SF-93, college: Baylor)<'s road to becoming an NBA defensive stopper began before he hit middle school. On Wednesday night, the man who was playing overseas last season will once again be given the large task of containing Oklahoma City star Paul George when the Jazz face the Thunder in Game 2 of a Western Conference first-round series. But, 16 years ago, O'Neale was an 8-year-old who had never played organized basket...   [read more]

Royce
O'Neale
After Rudy Gobert, the Jazz have another defensive stopper to utilize - 4 days ago
By: Cody Taylor With Game 1 against the Jazz nearing on Sunday, the Thunder will have their fair share of problems to deal with. Of course, one of the best stories of the 2017-18 season has been the emergence of rookie Donovan Mitchell. While he may not win Rookie of the Year, he has certainly earned the right to be in the conversation. He has helped fuel an unlikely turnaround with the Jazz this season that saw the team rise up to fifth in the Western Conference. As Thunder fans know,...   [read more]
