San Antonio Spurs 2012/2013 season thread.

Man, now looking back at Game 6, what a lost opportunity to have 5 rings. Both of my teams 49ers and Spurs lose in the championship.

First thing I told my wife who is a diehard Spurs fan. Just as the 49ers, Spurs lost in finals the first time in existence. But Spurs are far from finished. They haven't won less than 50 games per season since Duncan arrived, no need for things to change now. What an organization and only blind casual fans can't acknowledge this

Maybe?
This finals really cemented Duncan as one of the best players ever in my mind... the dude may have missed that last shot, but at 37, he's still the best big guy and his inside game is the best since Hakeem / Kareem...

Definitely top 10 all time...

Jordan
Magic
Russell
James
Kobe
Duncan
Kareem
Shaq
Bird
Wilt

Read my mind. He proved that he is still the best big in the league, if not one of.
Looks like we are preparing to defend Durant in the future. I like this pick.

Name: Livio Jean-Charles

Pick: No. 28 overall, First Round

Position: Power Forward

Country: France

Analysis: As they always seem to do, the Spurs have found a very interesting prospect here in the late first round. Hailing from France, Jean-Charles is physically impressive and could be a great role player some time down the road.

For now, though, Jean-Charles doesn't seem ready for the NBA, and it's unlikely that we'll see him in a Spurs uniform for a few years. Still, the physical tools should give fans reason to be excited, as he has a 7'3" wingspan and a lot of athleticism.

At the 2013 Nike Hoop Summit, Jean-Charles was particularly impressive, showing signs of what he could eventually be when he makes it to the NBA. He had 27 points and 13 rebounds against the USA Junior National Select Team, making a name for himself amongst scouts in the process.

It's hard to tell whether Jean-Charles will be a power forward or a small forward at this level, but either way he figures to be an effective defender. The success of this pick will depend a lot on how his body fills out over the next few years, and if he'll be able to refine his game if he remains abroad.

Grade: B+
Name: DeShaun Thomas

Pick: No. 58 overall, Second Round

Position: Small Forward

School: Ohio State

Analysis: Towards the end of the draft, there typically isn't much to choose from, but Thomas might end up being a good pick. He was the face of Ohio State's offense last season, and his jump shot could help off the bench.

If he ends up playing at power forward, this could be a potential DeJuan Blair replacement, as a reserve big capable of filling in when needed. The difference with him, however, is that his game is much more focused on scoring than rebounding.

Thomas was a truly dominant scorer in college averaging 19.8 points per game, but clearly teams don't think that will translate to the NBA level. Still, it's worth a shot to bring him in at this stage in the draft, as he could end up being a steal on the offensive end.

Grade: A
Spurs may be interested in Oden and Kirilenko.

Including the daft picks, it seems we are trying to get super long as a team overall. I like the draft picks but I always considered Kirilenko as soft and not aggressive on offense. Maybe we pick him up and Pop can change that a little.
Splitter's back. I'm a little surprised. I guess his market value dropped after the Finals.
Hope the Spurs win one this year. Of course, Lebron will need to pull a hammy or something.

Team looked good last night.

Just went there. I learned that you must hope the opponent chokes one game and then misses an easy game winner.
