1 month ago on 2013-14 Spurs Season Preview: 21 bold predictions
@RockheadTG These are bold predictions, not sensible predictions. Important distinction.
@russman38 Collins was an old school guy. He didn't buy into the new advanced stats. The Philadelphia 76ers new front office is implementing an environment where advanced stats can thrive. Collins didn't want any part of it.

@AdiDazzler You'd shake your head because I think he resembles two players? Never said he would BE McDyess -- just said that I thought the comparison was a good one. Chill.

@ChrisCano @ManuParker And yet, with Splitter, Manu and Belinelli already on board, $15 million for an undersized power forward may have been too much for the Spurs to stomach.

@pafletcher001 Hey, I kinda like this comparison. Good call.
@UsernameAlvin Fair enough.
@MOlsen You make a lot of sense. This isn't a terrible move, assuming the cost isn't too large.

@Spursforever69 In limited samples, he's been good in both facets.
5 months ago on Report: Spurs nab Jeff Pendergraph
@ZILLA There definitely was, but they aren't in the Spurs' price range.
@ChrisCano @BlazingDeath Pendergraph isn't a "great" bench player. At least not yet. He's barely had any minutes to showcase his skills, save for some garbage minutes here and there. The jury is still out on him.
As for Manu: I wrote why it's a decent deal a few days ago , so check that out if you would like the opposing side.
@SpursAllDay11 I'm on board with an Oden signing, believe it or not.
5 months ago on Grading the Spurs' early offseason moves
@Spursforever69 I'm not where I stand on Baynes, on account that I don't know how well he can play, but he could definitely be a fixture next year. Not sure about this season, though.
@Boo-J Thanks for your kind words and insight. I concur with everything you said.
Tiago's primary problems were not in his ability, which he has a lot, but in the minutes he received. His efficiency has been high in each of his three seasons and the only difference is the uptick in his minutes. He fits well in the system, as you said, and the Spurs are a much better team when he's on he floor. It's hard to find guys who make a defensive impact quite like Splitter. Two quick notes on Mohammed and Hollins
Hollins hasn't averaged more than 16 minutes a game in his career. There may very well be a reason for that.
Mohammed made fewer than 30 percent of his mid-range tries this season, so he isn't reliable in that regard. (Well, neither is Splitter.) He'll also be 36 next year and isn't as mobile as he once was.
Splitter will cost more than those guys, but there is a very simple reason: He's better on both ends of the floor. That's just my two cents. There's nothing wrong with disagreements.
5 months ago on Why the Spurs should retain Tiago Splitter
@jojo707 I see what you're saying but Ryan Hollins and Mohammed aren't even close to the caliber of Tiago Splitter. Not sure if that solves anything, even if it does allow them to spend money elsewhere. I'm comfortable paying him $10 million, if that's what it takes.
@be_Spurs None of these teams should beat the Spurs in the first-round. That's obvious. But drawing the ideal opponent could shave off some unnecessary playoff games before OKC/DEN/LAC/MEM.

@mpasse @AirAlamo1 I'm just hoping I'll be mentally prepared for an "epic" game.
1 year, 6 months ago on A Thunder storm is brewing: How do the Spurs stop it?
@mpasse I'm also a tad worried about how OKC's defensive adjustments turned San Antonio into an isolation heavy team. Over time, the Spurs offense won't be able to reach their offensive potential when the offense is stagnated. OKC can get away with it because of their talent but the Spurs need cohesion to succeed.
@Jkg_1218 I completely understand your sentiment as a Sonics fan. If I were in your position, I wouldn't be able to stand an entire city collectively celebrating my favorite team's accomplishments either.
