@scottmor83 @PaulGarciaPS @projectspurs  If you look back through his career numbers, they dipped as soon as he signed the deal he is currently on. Played really well 2 years ago.

8 months ago on Spurs interested in Ilyasova or Sixers Young?

They should let him go or trade him. SA is stacked at PG, Nando's natural position. I couldn't believe that Pop still thinks he has something to contribute with the small amount of playing time he gets. His contract is done at the end of the year and I can't imagine him resigning with what he was saying this summer. Continuity is the only reason to keep him, but does that really matter for your 3rd string PG/SG?

9 months, 1 week ago on Report: Turkish club Fenerbahce pursuing De Colo

@Drad82 cause Pop knew he would get bullied around by Gasol and Randolph. Even though Blair didn't start game 1 he got 9 more minutes that game than McDyess (22 - 13). Z-bo went crazy that game with 25 & 14 and the Spurs lost. Game 2 Pop switched up the minutes and Zach only had 11 & 4 and the Spurs won. That trend, plus Splitter, caused the beginning of the end for Pop's faith in Blair as a starter on championship caliber team. Also, Blair came off the bench the last regular season game against the Grizz. So maybe we should have seen it coming.

@JeffProjectSpurs @KennethEdwardFerguson @Spursfan66 @spursfan80 I think that is a fair assessment. His game didn't evolve to fit into the Spurs system and he ended up being a bad fit just like Richard Jefferson. He isn't a bad player, just not what the Spurs needed.

@JeffProjectSpurs Blair came into the team when they were high scoring offense and middle of the road defense. He was a good fit for that team then. But when Pop realized that they couldn't win like that (Memphis in 2011), they didn't have any place for an undersized 4 who is a mediocre defender and can't get his own shot. When Boris came along, Blair really took a dive down the depth chart because he does almost everything better than Blair (BBIQ, defense, shooting, dribbling, etc.). I would agree that he didn't develop much other than a tear drop floater this past year. I think the system changed though and didn't have a place for him to fit in (other than garbage time).
