Well, Earl Clark is on a 10 day contract, and he's not been doing anything over there. The Knicks just plain suck, simple as that. Hopefully Clark gets bounced and we can pick him up. Why he chose the freaking Knicks in the first place is beyond me.

@LeonardIsOurFuture Last year, Clippers were ranked 4th in opponent points per game. This year, they rank 15th. So, why would I be thinking about LAST SEASON, if my argument was they play crappy defense this season? They were better last season, DUUUH! It's like you assume the Clippers were worst on defense last year than this year. It looks like you are the one who doesn't know what he's saying.

Clippers are most likely going to get Granger, smh. He not only wants to be on a title team, but also wants to play a lot. I guess LA is the place for him. He has an offseason home there, and his dad and brother live there. It's the perfect situation for him. I would be SHOCKED if he chose the Spurs. The Clippers aren't even Finals material in my opinion. They play zero defense, and rely on scoring. They will try and put up as many points as possible, hoping they have the most by the end of the game. That's how they play. That never works in the playoffs, let alone the Finals. I think Grangers upside and contribution will matter more here, than with LA. The Clippers like to score and score, it's mainly Blake Griffin with Jamal Crawford on the side and Chris Paul giving it to either of them. Granger may play big minutes, but he's not going to be a big factor as he hopes. I personally believe his contributions will be more significant off our bench, than him starting in LA.
good news guys, granger's people say the Spurs are the front runners, and there is mutual interest. Marc Stein just came out with the report.

@spursfan80 @minus I think he meant OTHER contenders. I don't think Granger wants to go to Miami. He has a history of punking Lebron. Besides, if he goes to Miami, he probably won't even play that much given the fact Lebron, the best player in the world, is the starting SF. They also have Beasely coming off the bench who has been pretty decent. But who knows, maybe he has developed the," If you can't beat them, join them" mindset. That leaves OKC and the Spurs. Both OKC and Miami and even Indiana have superstars at the SF position. I don't think he'll like sitting in the shadows of the top two best players on earth in Durant and James. I mean, isn't that why he was a bit frustrated in Indiana? Paul George came up, and he took a backseat to him. If Indiana barely used him (because of the emergence of George), you think Miami and OKC will use him with Kevin and James still in their primes and tearing up the league? Kawhi Leonard isn't a superstar (yet), no one on the spurs has nowhere near the green light like Lebron or Durant. So Granger may feel like he doesn't need to be the superstar here, yet still be able to contribute significantly on a team that is definitely still Finals material. I'm sure he knows Pop is a genius at spreading the wealth and managing minutes.
I could be dead wrong. Watch him go to the Clippers or Houston, lol.
@jaws3 Two words.....CASH MONEY.
I think the Knicks offered more and Clark took it.
I have no reaction because he won't even play. He'll come in during garbage time during a blowout. But he'll just be at the end of the bench looking on. He won't get a chance unless Kawhi, Manu and/or Green and/or Belinelli all get injured. That's most likely not going to happen, so Daye will just be an insurance policy. Basically, I expect NOTHING from Daye this entire season.

Well guys, Earl Clark is off the table. Hopefully Granger would like to come to Texas. Pop knows how to handle minutes.
1 week, 3 days ago on A rundown of the NBA's buyout market
@SCOLFIELD1421 Earl Clark signed with the Knicks. I guess Granger is our last hope.
@EricBias Granger is a little too risky. He's been suffering from injuries. It's not like he got injured, missed a few weeks and came back. No, he's been dealing with nagging injuries for like the past two YEARS! The only thing he has is veteranship. We should sign Earl Clark. He's younger, more athletic, longer (wingspan almost as big as kawhi's), and good size at 6'9-6'10. Clark has been playing in horrible systems lately, no one knows how to utilize him. Pop and our veterans can fix that. We don't need a tour de force at the BACKUP SF spot, that's asking for too much. But at 6'10, young, athletic, and as long as Clark? We can't pass that up. I hope the front office gets him. The backup SF is a glaring weakness.
1 week, 4 days ago on Report: Spurs want to explore free agent pool before re-signing Brown
Height - Earl Clark = 6'10
Length - Earl Clark = 7'2.5 wingspan
Athleticism = On NBADraft.net, on a scale of 1-10, Earl Clark's athleticism was rated as a 9.
Defense = Remains to be seen. I think Pop can handle that.
If given the chance, and put in a system NOTORIOUS for getting the most out of so so players, Clark can be dangerous. He has POTENTIAL.
1 week, 6 days ago on Report: Spurs want to explore free agent pool before re-signing Brown
Earl Clark is my pick and a solid choice for the spurs. He's still pretty young at 26, and he has LEGIT athleticism, more so than all those other guys on the list. At 6'10 with a long wingspan, he's the perfect backup to Kawhi. Clark has great potential, he just needs to be put in a good system. Just recently, he played for Van Gundy in Orlando during Howard's last year there. We all remember how much of a media circus Orlando was in at the time. It was all about Howard and his antics, and Van Gundy getting fired. Huge distraction for that team. Then, he plays with LA with Howard AGAIN, which was another media circus. And it doesn't help that he played under D'Antoni, who has no clue what he's doing up there in la la land. And now, he just played for Cleveland. No explanation with that one. Send him here, where his talents and abilities can flourish in Pop's system. Again, young, long and athletic. I remember reading countless comments on here and at PoundingTheRock, where fans described what they want at the backup SF spot. The two qualities that always came up were young and athletic. Earl Clark fits that bill.
This is why it is crucial the spurs at least get back to the Finals this year. Nothing will be better for all spurs fans if Tim Duncan goes out with his 5th ring.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on George Karl hearing Duncan might retire at season's end
I like the idea of Taj Gibson. We need the defense more than anything. But I don't think Chicago will give him up. The best possible pickup for the spurs right now would be Trevor Ariza. Long, solid defender who wouldn't mess up the spurs' drive in and kick out to open shooters style, seeing as how Ariza is pretty good from 3 point range (40%). It's a stretch, but Ariza would fit perfectly for us.
Too bad it will most likely not happen:(

I just want him to get #5!!!!
It will be a bonus if he gets his 4th Finals MVP. That would solidify him for top 5 player of all time.

It just goes to show it's a popularity contest.

Timmy should do these types of moves more often. These Hakeem Olajuwon/Kevin McHale moves are golden, and rarely fail. Combine that with Tim's natural skill set and footwork, and his game down low should be elevated even more. There is a reason McHale and Olajuwon boasted such high field goal percentages throughout their careers. Their moves were so effective, and it made them outstandingly efficient.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Video: Duncan makes DeAndre Jordan look silly
I remember reading a comment somewhere else, a guy did some calculations and said if this trend continues and the spurs keep losing to good teams (The OKC's, Miami's, Pacers, Trailblazers of the NBA), and beat mediocre to terrible teams, they would still come out with like a 60-22 record, or something around that. I mean if there is any truth to that, we really have nothing to worry about right?? The playoffs is a whole different animal. This is why I don't really like watching the regular season. Virtually all of the games don't mean anything. The spurs got blown out by Portland at home by like 36 points last season, anyone remember that? That didn't mean jack squat because Portland didn't even make the playoffs and the spurs came within seconds of holding up the trophy. I do watch some regular season games, but it means very little to me. Unless of course, the spurs go on a long ass losing streak, then a cause of concern will kick in. But we all know that won't happen, so there's really nothing to worry about. As long as everyone is healthy come playoff time, and the spurs are at least top 4, it's all good.
