Exactly how I feel. Hopefully, he super-secretly got awesome or something.


Haslep doesn't like to be hit in the face. He threw a nice one back.

What's with all the crossing guards?
I think we are looking for more athletic talent that can play above the rim:


Here's a highlight film of him in Europe. He looks fluid and can finish similar to Bird Man. Spurs need clean-up type of guys who can get some blocks on help defense and he seems like a good fit. Also, Duncan's misses are usually in the key and the attention he gets will allow above the rim type of players some ample clean-up opportunities. I don't think they really have anyone right now who can fly in there with power.

Detroit doesn't want AJ.

Joe Dumars told the Detroit News: "Where we are right now as a team is kind of like where we were at the start of the Rick Carlisle era. And a $4 [million] to $5 million [per year] coach is not what we need right now. We didn't have one of those until we were close to contending for a championship when we got Larry [Brown]."

So Detroit is in full rebuilding mode, can't afford a good coach, and can't offer McDyess half of what the Spurs can.

Hurry up and sign McDyess.

The Spurs have emerged as the frontrunner in the chase to land free-agent forward Antonio McDyess.

According to a league executive with knowledge of the negotiations, the Spurs have offered McDyess a three-year deal starting at the full mid-level exception, with the third year partially guaranteed.

It has been widely speculated that McDyess, 34, will play only two more years. If the Spurs' rumored bid is true, the Spurs have essentially sweetened their best two-year offer by guaranteeing McDyess a bit of money for retirement in 2011-12.

The 6-foot-9 McDyess emerged as the Spurs' top target after Rasheed Wallace -- McDyess' former teammate in Detroit -- agreed to terms with Boston earlier this week. He is also being pursued by Cleveland and Orlando.

Battle freaking Royale, man. We should just skip ahead to the 2nd Round of the Playoffs....

Lakers....Artest (but lose Ariza)
Boston...Sheed, Grant Hill?
Orlando...Carter (but lose Hedo)
SA..........Jefferson, McDyess?
Cleveland...Shaq

Dayum.

I've always thought MyDyess would look good in a Spurs jersey.
