Celtics? He played for Lakers, Mavericks, Pacers and Sonics. And
Hall of Famer? Dude probably averaged 13 and 5 for his career. Probably.
If I'm being generous. Only reason he was even in the Finals 3 times is
because of Magic, Kemp, The Glove and Reggie.

Get this trash off a Spurs blog. I love Kobe and respect his game, but really? Comparing to Jordan. Even the Laker fans I know have stopped doing this.
We're talking about MJ being THE GOAT.
If you're making a list of all time NBA great players, Kobe is more around 8th - 10th on the list. I'll take MJ, Kareem, Magic, Wilt, Bill Russell, etc over his any day of the week. Also a guy named Tim Duncan. And that's just off the top of my head. Get real.

Even if the Spurs were to win the title this year, I really don't think Timmy would retire. He signs a 3 year contract to only fulfill one year of it? Unlikely. Win or lose, I think he at least plays next year, barring an injury of course.
As for Manu, he needs to decide quick. There "cap hold" on the Spurs payroll of about 15 mil I believe until he makes up his mind and signs his official signs his deal he decides on. I'd love for him to do 1 or 2 more years, but hope he doesn't take too long to decide so the Spurs can do whatever they need to.

@UniversalSecret You must mean LMFAO....Don't worry. You'll get the hang of it at some point. I hope so anyway.
Don't you realize that you could have just typed in SMH, instead of typing out the whole thing. Are you new to the internetz?
@UniversalSecret Lol. I'm actually sick today. Wasn't able to work, so I'm in bed with my laptop. This is no sweat off my back. So, if you are determined to have the last word here....you won't. Unless of course, you are the one with no life. What's your excuse for coming back to comment? Your fat girlfriend wasn't exactly seducing you with her fat fingers dunking her oreos in milk? lololol.
@UniversalSecret Rape joke was definitely a 9/10. I can do a "your mom is so fat" joke. How about an "I slept with your girlfriend" joke? Nah....nobody would believe that. You probably have a fat girlfriend. I wouldn't even go near it.
For "not giving a fuck", you sure do seem to give quite the fuck. Don't forget that this conversation originally never involved you. So, going forward, next time you
"don't give a fuck"....don't tag me in a comment and get involved in the discussion. Mkay? Also, did they make Oberto posters? Lol. I've never jacked of to a poster of an athlete. Is it fun? Are you recommending it from first hand experience?
Sounds like you are. Go jerk off to your favorite player Kobe. You can fantasize you are a girl in a Colorado hotel room and he's raping you. That's it. Go jerk off to him raping you. Based on your internet personality, you are probably fucked up enough to do that sort of thing. Peace out
@UniversalSecret @JimmyPriour Universal D-Bag: For the record, let me clarify what's going on here.
My thoughts on Fab are actually the least relevant thing here. What was really going on here was AJ'sDad21 wouldn't let it go that stats somehow were a way to measure basketball. Fab was purely a paradigm. And I was using this paradigm to exploit Mr. Domingo's LOW IQ. Not Low B-Ball IQ...but just general IQ. Feel free to plug in another high b-ball IQ type of player there. Shane Battier. Andre Miller. I really don't care. And what's relevant is that in my initial contact with him I call him a troll. because his question was so fucking dumb I figured he had to be trolling. Otherwise he'd just be an idiot. Which I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt on. That effort proved fruitless. As are my efforts with you. Reasonable Internet Sports Fan....the guy no one has ever met. Big Foot.
Oh ya...one last thing. Go back and read. I'm not even the one that brought up Fabricio. Domingo was. And my reply simply was that Fab was on the court becuse he was a very intelligent basketball player. That's it...that's all I said. So don't sit here and tell me to get over Fabricio or something....when I'm not even the one that fucking brought him up.
It amazes me how people don't know how to fucking read and freak out over nothing. Get over it. Nobody was even talking to you anyway, universal d-bag. You're the one that jumped into OUR conversation. Click on "unfollow" if your panties are that twisted about it.
Lol. You mad bro? I actually have probably thought about Fabricio once since he left San Antonio and couldn't care less about him. If you read closely I threw him and Boris Diaw as examples of people with high baketball IQs. That was it. I couldn't give a crap about Fabricio. I was just illustrating a point. As far as I can tell, you and Anthony Domingo are the ones that keep clamoring over the point and wanting to discuss Fabricio. He was someone with a high bball IQ. That was my point. That's all my point was so that I could illustrae my opinion on whether or not Baynes would play or not.
I think it's time to drop it. I reference ONE PLAYER....out of thousands that have played in the NBA as an example of someone with a high b-ball IQ... and you guys start going on about Fabricio being "discussion worthy." If you don't feel he is...then here's an idea: Stop fucking talking about it. Move on. Get a grip. And stop being so pissed off over it. It's just basketball.
UniversalSecret, much like your buddy ajd21 you read too much into my statement.
I make a simple statement that Oberto had a high b-ball iq and you start giving IQ scores and what level is high and what level is technically off the charts.
It's called hyperbole, children. Of course I don't think that Oberto was the Stephen freaking Hawking of basketball. I was just illustrating the point that Oberto was a very smart basketball player.
If you two don't like that I used the term "off the charts" and wanna split hairs about what his actual basketball IQ would be if you could score it, then seriously...you two can get a room. Otherwise, be reasonable and realize that you guys are making WAY TOO MUCH of my statement. His b-ball IQ was, indeed, quite high. Bottom line. Simple point. If you wanna split hairs about what's high and what's genius or whatever....go ahead. Have at it. You two take things way too seriously. Have some common sense. Jesus Christ.
@JimmyPriour @ajd21 AJD21: I never called Fab a "basketball genius." Just because one has a high IQ does not mean he is a genius. Don't put words in my mouth.
At any rate, I've already explained for you the difference between what stats measure and what intangibles doesn't. If you can't comprehend what makes someone an intelligent basketball player vs what makes someone a stats stuffer, then that's your problem. Not mine
Trying to convince you of this simple thing is starting to border on convincing a 5 year old that the boogie man doesn't exist. If you do not posses the ability to think outside the box, I can't force your brain to operate that way. I'm done with this conversation.
JimmyPriour: Thank you for being able to comprehend my point. This gives me hope. I never said that Fab was a "great" player. I simply said he was successful because he had a high basketball IQ. Apparently I've made him a god in the eyes of someone.
Also, as another point. You are exactly the problem with wanna-be know it all sports fans. You're gonna throw out stats to prove your point? And then draw Patty Mills, a 5 foot 10 pg as a comparison.
There's something called "intangibles." Things that can't be measured by stats, but are noticed by coaches and teammates alike. For those of us that actually played organized basketball, we know what these "intangibles" are. They're things that don't show up on scoreboards. Smart passes that lead to another pass that leads to a shot. A "hockey assist" if you will. Smart off the ball screening when you didn't even touch the ball. This is the stuff that allows PGs to find shooters like Ray Allen cutting around the screen on a "curl route." Screener never touched the ball and doesn't get a "stat' for it, but it's vital for the play.
THIS IS ALL THE STUFF THAT FABRICIO WAS GOOD AT DOING. And especially in the Spurs system at the time it was extremely important.
But ya know....you're a "stats" guy. Who consults other commenters on blogs who have never played an organized game in their life. Keep up the good work, clown.
I simply said that Fab had a high basketball IQ, because he did. If you view that as "glorification", then that is sad.
And you sough the opinion of "some spurs fans on other forums" to figure out how you should feel about the subject, then that is also sad. Good job thinking for yourself. Lol
Fab was a starting center on a championship team for a reason. That was not an accident.
And why don't you research how Pop and Timmy feel about Fabricio. Ya know....a couple of guys that actually know basketball. Instead of a bunch of Spurs fans from San Antonio that likely only barely graduated high school....if even if that. Spurs' internet bogs: ajd21's form of "research." How utterly laughable.
Uh...wow. What do you think made Fabricio so successful? His daunting athleticism? His killer jump shooting? His basketball IQ was indeed very high. If you don't see it that way, you know nothing about basketball. He knew how to pick his spots on the floor and use his intelligence to his advantage. I.E. A high basketball IQ.
Keep watching and reading about basketball. You have a lot to learn. Besides, you're the retard that asks dumb questions like "durrrrrr...is Pop gonna play the new guy?" What are you, 12 years old?
@ajd21 @JimmyPriour Oh ya. I almost forgot to reciprocate. Ahem....idiot.
Lolololol. My comment was clearly in jest. ajd21 picked up on that.
Anyway, I'm a season Spurs fan. Boris and Fab are humongous exceptions. They're basketball IQ was/is off the chart. You can plug Boris on any team and he'd be an asset.
I think it just depends on exactly how Baynes reacts. Look at Tiago. Took him 2 years nearly to get into the rotation.
@ajd21 Are u trolling? lol. Of course Pop is gonna put him on the bench.

Gasol in 2008 I would have taken in a heart beat. But he doesn't look the same. Plus, Diaw has been playing the 3 lately, with Kawhi and sJax on the mend. He's so versatile. Quickly has become one of our key guys.
1 year, 12 months ago on Would the Lakers trade Gasol to a Foe?
Um...yeah. Please do us all a favor and NEVER compare Tiago freakin Splitter to Manu Ginobili ever again. Case in point? If you think Manu is a typical example of ANY player in ANY league EVER...you're crazy.
And American kids that turn into busts don't prove your point in the least. The NBA is a league of attrition. Which is why if you are in the NBA, you're one of the best in the world. And if you aren't in the NBA, you aren't as good. There's certainly exceptions to the rule, but as a general statement, NBA players ARE the best in the world. Which is why it's the goal of basketballers world wide to make the NBA, not the other way around.
And there's a reason why the Gasols play in the NBA and not Spain. Your examples only prove my point if you think about it.
So, yes. Euroleague is inferior to the NBA. All I have to say to your twisted logic is wow. Just wow.
2 years ago on Splitter's Confidence Coming From Unlikely Source
I'm really tired of people that keep citing Tiago's success in Europe. Like that matters. It's inferior competition over there. That's why he was the man. He was a big fish in a small pond. The best basketball players in the world are in the NBA...where we've only seen flashes from him. Love my Spurs, but Tiago ain't the answer guys.
This was the year after the 99 championship that Jackson said deserved and Asterisk. So, whether or not it was intentional, he deserved it.

@spurs123 Lol. The point of preseason is to run every single play for Curry? Ok, my bad.
2 years, 1 month ago on Eddy Curry aiming to impress
@spurs123 Lol @ your logic. The plays have "definitely" been designed for Curry because it's preseason? What...do you have access to the playbook. Is Pop calling "5 down" every time Nando or Corey take it down the floor? Lol. Where do you get your insider info?
You clearly didn't watch the game, because Curry posted up and asked for the ball, basically every time down the floor. Even if Pop would have designed SOME PLAYS for Curry "because it's the preseason," I doubt that would be the case for EVERY SINGLE PLAY. Which was my point. He did this EVERY SINGLE PLAY.
They televised Sunday's game vs Houston on NBA TV and I got to see Curry in action. I was really impressed. He was working his tail off and doing a lot of "dirty work." My only complaint about him is he kept posting up and asking for the ball, like the play was designed for him....when we all know it probably wasn't. lol. But that's fixable. I really hope we keep him.
No point in getting hyped up about Curry v Powell. Knowing Pop, he won't pick either. lol.

2 years, 1 month ago on Is this the new Spurs homecourt?
@JMattHicks @Betordz20 JMatt: That is a REALLY good idea, man. I miss that old court. It reminds me of the old days.
Don't know if you're a gamer, but on NBA2k12, if you unlock the 98 Spurs, you can play at the Alamodome with the old fiesta colored court. Love it.
The Eddy Curry appearance REALLY intrigues me. I've been the first to criticize the guy over the years for being overweight and lazy. But at the same time...when you really think about it, this is basically the lost shot he's gonna get. His game in Highschool was utterly dominant and people forget that even when he was playing "well" he was a liability on defense.....yet, he was surprisingly nimble for a guy his height and weight. He's only 29 or so and between 2004 and 2007 or 8 he was actually a fairly reliable offensive player.
It may not work out....but what if it does? Just saying. As I mentioned, what if he's working really hard cuz he knows it's his last chance he may get. Some reports say he's lost almost 100 pounds since his final New York days. 100 lbs??? You don't do that without self discipline. Give him a chance, fellow Spurs fans!

I personally don't have a problem with flopping. Perhaps it's because I'm a Spur fan and have watched Manu do it for 10 years now. But it's smart. Not everyone is as big and powerful as LeBron. Well, no one is. You have to be able to do SOMETHING to counter if it. If you can sell it, more power to you.

Darko Milicic. The signing of the summer. Like I said tho. No offense :) lol
@Spursfan66 yeah, i'm with you on the first year part. I was a HUGE DeJuan fan. I honestly even considered buying his jersey (probably the HEB one for like 20 bucks tho, lol). But I thought he was a BEAST. After all, with his height and the rebounds he'd get. He was a work horse that first year. Real blue collar type.
But he's changed. Now he complains about playing time and I really think becoming a starter so early in his career got to his head. I wouldn't mind DeJuan as our 4th Big that would come in for spurts to do the "dirty work" and rebound and clean up. But he somehow thinks he's more than that. He's a complete offensive liability, you know what i mean? He runs the pick and role well with Manu....but I think that's more Manu. lol. Agree?
