San Antonio Spurs Offseason thread

The key is to keep Kobe shooting. Take everyone else out of the game.

Gotta agree with this. The "who guards Kobe" argument can be used against any team that plays the Lakers. The main question is, if Odom is there, who's there to shut him out or who's there so that Gasol won't be a factor.

Fitting nickname when you consider his sexual orientation.
Parker will be OK, obviously. But it's an uncomfortable reminder of what happened to Ginobili last year.

It's also a reminder that the Spurs really can't afford to lose Parker to injury. Although he's probably the most easily replaceable of the big 3, there's virtually no depth at point guard. It's Parker, Hill---who's not really a point guard---and . . . um . . . yeah.

Pop is a brutally honest man.

“We weren’t beating the Lakers, even if we were whole,” Popovich said. “If you really wanted to be honest with yourself, you had to think that.”

Are we serious about wanting another championship? “If so,” Popovich said, “it’s time to pony up.”

“By no means are we the best team in the league,” Popovich said. “But I think we’re back in the ballgame.”

For years, the franchise had remained, in Popovich’s words, “frugal.”

“We’ve always wanted to compete, and the environment in the NBA allowed a team like us to do so,” Popovich said. “If you wanted to work at having a shot at winning the championship and still be under the tax, it could be done. But the way the talent has shifted in the league, it’s almost impossible to do that now.”

“I’d be disingenuous if I said I didn’t worry [about Manu] because he does have some miles,” Popovich said. “But I don’t think it’s a Grant Hill situation or [Zydrunas] Ilgauskas or Yao Ming thing. I don’t think it’s that kind of thing, where his foot is kind of brittle.”

“My goal,” Popovich said, “is for [Duncan] to start the season out of shape.”

Oh, and Duncan is down to 240 pounds.

Good interview, and nice points made all around. But what does he mean by Tim starting the season out of shape? Is he insinuating that he wants him to rest the whole offseason?

I think he just wants to cut down on Duncan's running and scrimmaging because of the impact on his knees. Duncan will still be doing things like lifting weights and swimming, I think.

BTW, if I have to hear one more time about LeBron being 6'9'' and 270 pounds . . .



Dude is shorter than Boozer and barely taller than Carmelo. He's 6'7'' or maybe 6'8''. And 270 pounds? Please.

This guy is so overhyped, it's ridiculous.

LOL. That extremely awkward photo is brought to you by Adidas. They sponsor D-12, but Nike sponsored the Olympic team. Coach K is carefully positioned to block the Nike logo on D-12's shoe.
Coach K is blocking the Adidas on Howard's shoes. Howard is blocking the Nike swoosh on his shorts.

So weird.

Unless you're playing soggy biscuit. I always go last on purpose.
Yeah, he really is skinny.
