@xpd447 yeah, I thought management cut him? Never read about Neal wanting out. He was a restricted free agent. He got an offer that was not matched by the spurs cause they had better options (Bellinelli)

Michael Kidd Gilchrist says he lost one on one versus Jordan last year. And that's an active NBA player. Doesn't sound like much of a challenge for MJ.

@RockheadTG 2012 was a sour defeat. Some role player always stepped it up in OKC while the Spurs got NOTHING from their bench. We are deeper now, they are less deep. But lets pray defensive greats Ibaka doesn't and Sefolosha stays out of it on the offensive end.

@jaws3 The danger is getting injured in the competition. They can handle it.Parker has been playing Eurobasket (7 times), Olympic (2 times) and World championship (once) since 2001. And he has played pretty strong throughout his career - everyone has their ups and downs during a long NBA season - international competition or not.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Parker earns Eurobasket MVP honors as France wins Gold over Lithuania
In the semis against Spain he did it on his own in the first half, scoring 12/20 pts, and after that his team mates had a a tough time finding a rythm in the game. But they prevailed.
It was clearly a part of the gameplan that Tony came out looking to be a distributor. Having lost once to Lithuania earlier in the tournament France needed to try something different. And it worked wonders for them. Great to see the smiles on the spurs trio as they brought home the gold. Diaw looked great and was aggressive!
Didn't really look like France had any kind of set plays. There was alot of one on ones and after starting 1/10 from 3p they made 9 out of their next 11 to get back in it. The french zone defense in the later stage of the game made things difficult for Marc Gasol but Spain kept looking for him which led to a bruising tough game (Diaw fouled out mid 4th). Parker couldn't buy a bucket in the end but made four clutch free throws.
It will be an interesting finals. Lithuanians played killer defense and outmuscled a huge croatian squad (the team AVERAGE 6'8") Valanciunas got 5 blocks. Considering the french didn't play good offense at all last night the odds should favour Lithuania. Then again.. ..a couple of intimidating shot blockers never stopped Tony Parker from going to the paint now has it..

I have these. A good shoe. When lacing tightly it looks a bit bulky over the toes - to much rubber there I suppose. But I do have thin feet so I probably lace tighter than most.

That's fair, considering he has not been properly battle tested. But earning minutes in the playoffs ahead of DeJuan Blair shows that the Spurs do have confidence in him.
3 months, 1 week ago on Spurs Rank: #14 Aron Baynes
Diaw has moore talent and is of simular stature. Blairs wage was low, spurs wanted something in return and could afford to wait. And clearly Dejuan wasn't disagreeable enough to get waived (like Jackson)

4 months, 1 week ago on Report: Oden spurns Spurs, signs two-year deal with Miami
Blessing in disguise. Miami seem to have a charity spot on their roster each year at centers who don't get to play. First Dampier, then Curry next is Oden. I really don't think he can be effective, he will be playing with caution. If you're afraid, it just will not work out in the NBA. Let's give backup c minutes to Baynes and get someone for Kawhi to sub with at sf instead, that is what we need.
Really nice, hard to come by in europe?

Isn't Anderson Varejao expendable for Cleveland?I'd love to see him in a Spurs uniform :D
4 months, 3 weeks ago on How about Asik in black and silver?
@ChrisCano @JohanBeijer I like Hickson, his energy would be great for this team. And Jefferson has got plenty of solid years ahead of him. Neal will probably get a deal simular to Greens, but he can't be first backup point guard. If management does feel loyalty towards Manu going forward.. ..I'm afraid he will be getting more millions than a vets minimum though.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on A look at the Spurs salary situation heading into next season
@ChrisCano If Manu goes and Jacksons paycheck obviously up. That leaves alot of money on the table - who can the Spurs bring? Could a team like the Spurs land a big fish even with cap space? Would a star like Igoudala look at this team? Or can management dig up another Leonard (and how would we get there in a trade situation?). There are plenty of players who are better than Manu now but can the Spurs get them?
Looking forward to NEXT season, I certainly agree with you.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Like family, Spurs never lost faith in Ginobili
Don't have the energy to track y'all disbelivers down and demand your excuses - but im one of those who insisted he was worth the risk. But man, that Pop guy sure knows how to coach. That was a bold move that paid off big time.
If all games look like this.. Tony being handled by the Heat, not really getting going. Even if that is the key to the teams success - would Parker get playoff MVP?
In 07, when Duncan was the biggest star demanding most of Clevelands attention Parker capitalized on that and became playoff MVP.
Who decides this award?Talk about getting ahead of myself.. ..but hey, i'm curious.
6 months ago on Game 3: San Antonio Spurs 113, Miami Heat 77
I always feel like he is inches away from playing great. He takes alot of momentum changing shots, tries to get timely steals, mixing it up. But he is unfortunately not converting with any kind of consistency. I don't know what he is showing in practice. If they judge that he can get it going again? But he has really been slightly off for most of the season.
The key thing about keeping him out there is Miamis respect for him. I think it's fair to compare him to Wade. We can't leave him, he will take advantage of that and I think it's the same with Manu. He demands defensive attention. Can't see him as a spot up shooter at all.
For game 3, I still think Manu is worth the risk.
