SA's "Big" Weakness

17

Found this excellent link in one of the comment threads: "Alas, Popovich scrapped the Splitter/Duncan pairing Tuesday after it (once again) failed to produce enough offense. The Spurs have scored just 97.6 points per 100 possessions in the minutes those two have played together, the equivalent of what Washington’s 29th-ranked offense has produced this season, per NBA.com’s stats database. San Antonio leads the league in scoring overall, so that drop-off is huge." I still say the answer is to let Timmy shoot the corner 3 when he and Tiago are both on the floor. Tell me he couldn't hit 40% when his man sags to try and stop the Tony/Tiago high pick and roll.

Salary Cap & Luxury Tax

The Spurs are over the salary cap, over the luxury tax threshold, out of exceptions and have the maximum 15 players under contract. So are we done? Must we focus all our hopes and dreams on these...

Jefferson's Return Could Be Imminent

Jefferson........ has told close associates his top priority in free agency is to secure a new multi-year deal to return to the Spurs. Rumors run from 3/30 to 5/45 with the 5th year partially guaranteed.

Nets Release Dooling, Reduce Team Salary to Zero

7

Outgoing GM Rod Thorn said "Releasing our last player frees us up to offer LeBron our entire salary cap, estimated at over $56 million per year". When asked how the team will compete in the talent-laden NBA with only one player on the roster, Thorn indicated he'd leave that problem to his successor. But he mentioned the possibility of randomly drawing the names of four fans before each tip-off. This would not only add excitement to the pre-game festivities and boost attendance, it would allow LeBron to shoot every possession and make him a shoo-in for MVP the rest of his career. Of course it would also weaken his chances of winning a championship but, as Thorn noted, "He can always buy a ring, who else is going to pay him $56m/year"?

No, this isn't about eyesight or DeJuan's two best games or a popular late night refreshment. It's just a list of the #20 draft picks for the last 20 years. Some names, some Trivial Pursuit...

Tony to Knicks?

30

Tony and Eva have told close friends they'd love to live in NY. Also, Pop loves George and benched Tony, so why stay? Furthermore, Tony is hurt by brain-dead fans who want to trade him (OK, I made that one up. But if we end up with Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, I'm blaming you idiots).

That Final Play

  A lot of people are blaming Matt Bonner for "deciding to go 1-on-1 from the top of the key" on that fateful final play, so I thought I'd take closer look (continued after the break).

In Praise of Complementary Players
