Manu absolutely diserves the extra money on his current contract. Houston was offering more. He has sacraficed in the past for his team and this is simply makes up for him not demanding max contracts in the past. It will be a glorious day when his jersey is retired and hangs proudly above our fans.

With respect to Rubios game. He's not even in the same stadium as parker until He has at least one ring.
Perkins is making a statement based on potential. If we were to make predictions on potential then there's a lot of rediculous things we can say but the bottom line is that actions speak louder than words. Very few point guards in NBA history will accomplish what parker has accomplished. Steve Nash in all his glory has no rings. Everyone likes to say Chris Paul is better than TP yet Tony is yet to loose a playoff series against him. I love CP3 but again... Tony has gotten it done and continues to get it done every season. There's a reason why for some time last season he was considered number 2 in the MVP race. Most non-spurs fans have no idea what this guy is capable of.

Would love to see Pietrus since he def fills a need behind Leonard. Has the potential to be a D an 3 guy off the bench for 10-15 mins a night. <-- this is the need.
Love that the spurs want to bring in a vet pg. A guy like Bibby can teach these guys so much/keep them in line (Mills, De Colo, Joseph). Tony is already busy enough with the starting role. This will make Bibby happy because he will be part of a winning team/Spurs are happy because they have an injection of vetran pg BB IQ to act as an assistant coach like Jaque Vaugn. Look at Jaque now.

Joseph is starting to remind me of Jason Kidd the way he has an all aroudn game. I've always loved this kid and hope he can become the next man for the spurs. He certainly seems to put the work in.

Just a few names.... What other team has had this kind of impact on the NBA?
Brett Brown, Don Newman, P.J. Carlesimo, Avery Johnson, Jacque Vaughn, Monty Williams, Mike Brown, Danny Ferry, Sam Presti, Dennis Lendsey

He certainly has the potential on offense. Neal can stop and pop, pick and pop, spot up, hit floaters, and running bank shots.... He's got a lot of options for sure. Expect his shooting percentages to go down though.. Prob somewhere around 38% shooting percentage and lower from 3 pt range. I hope he surprises me and does better because he really seems to be a high character guy. Where it hurts the most is on defense but the bucks have some outstanding rim protectors so if his presence can be neutralized. Overall Neal is a big step up from Roger Mason, hopefully Belinelli is a step up from Neal.

I wonder if in Europe they've come up with some revolutionary surgery that increases the life of a players knees and the spurs have lined our top draftees up for the surgery? This would explain Tims production for sure.
Next Generation of spurs players have robotic knees.

Exactly.. plus considering his overall contribution one can make an argument that he's accepted less money in the past as well for the overall betterment of the team.

One thing to add to this article... Greivis Vasquez, turns out to be the most improved player of the year in my eyes after the trade. In return they did get a valuable piece in Quency Poindexter but... I guess they didn't realize his true value until these playoffs. I wouldn't be surprised if he starts next year. Prince is done unless they absolutely have to use him. Daye needs to develop because he's in line for 2nd string minutes. At least Memphis learned some things from this series. Glad to have another strong developing team in the west with good leadership.

Good article, I feel like our best lineup is one that brings Tony off the bench when Jack comes off the bench. TP still has trouble guarding Jack but will do much better against him. That puts Manu at point, Green and Leonard at the 2 and 3 position and then Splitter and Duncan down low... I guess you can interchange Diaw with Splitter but I think the size will help us in case they drive.
With this lineup we really have a lot of defensive strength because Manu, Green and Loendard can switch all day on Thompson and Curry.
Either way it really looks like the spurs have the pieces of a stronger team. I'm very curious to see what Pop does.

I think the our players and coaching staff respect GSW. They're a good team with a lot of options. I as a fan have a lot of respect for them as well. They have a lot of talented players and have proven they can get it done. No way I take this series for granted. Looking forward to the competition though.

I think Cory can only get better. He's doing exactly what he's been doing over the last 3 years with the canadian national team, the D league, and the summer league. He also has the potential to get better as his confidence grows and that is exactly what we need coupled with his superior laterial quickness, higher rebounding ability for his size, and very good ball handling. His mother and father played ball professional and his brothers play as well.

Honestly, I think this blog is supposed to be here to support our spurs not put them down. It's sad how shallow the people's faith in the spurs are.. Based on the comments below. If you look at the stats for this game, with tony Parker playing well we would have blown thisgame out. Against the best 1-2 punch front line Tim and tiago payed very well both getting double doubles while playing significantly under 40 minutes. Dwight and Pau had to fight for every point and both played almost 40. We still held them to 91 points at 36%. That's good D and is something we need to see more than anything going into the playoffs.. To me, tony was holding back because this month has been more about Tim getting used to being the man and Pop getting a look at who will play in the playoffs and who won't. The team has worked hard for this comfort and I don't think they're bothered. I have faith and expect a very strong healthy team more than ready come day one of the playoffs. Those who don't have faith, maybe you should watch the lakers.

It was obvious there was no since of urgency in this game. That doesn't matter much to me since this isn't the playoffs. Lets see what happens game one.
Yes this sounds like a great idea if they add some pieces by either bringing hanga or Bertrand over or picking up a free agent. We wantto stay competitive and win now because of Tim's contract almost ending.
