if we do, we do. Im just going to enjoy the rest of the Duncan and Ginobili era for all it is worth...cause to be honest, I know we will have a big drop-off once they retire.
Haha! That vid was awesome.
Dirk is my favorite athlete, bar none. Nobody else can top the German Moses!
For real man, I'm just going to enjoy watching Dirk play out the remainder of his career. It's a lot easier to enjoy watching him play now that he got his ring. Glad he's back in action.
I feel you on that. Both are great. I dont think you guys will hit lottery til Pop retires though.
unfortunately, we will probably end up being a middle of the road team.....between 7-10 seed year in and year out after Duncan.....and never getting that elite player that can carry us for a decade plus.
If we dont get that elite player like Robinson or Duncan, it is ok.....we have been blessed for the past 23 years......and that is nothing to shake a stick at.
This is exactly where Houston has been ever since Olajawon left. We ended up winning the lottery and had a few decent years with Yao, but we have largely missed on landing key players like T-Mac, Scola, and Martin. I've said it a few time, teams like Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio need to draft well because they cannot attract big names like Lebron and Dwight. When you land a top 5 pick it has to be an impact player like OKC has in Durant instead of all the misses Portland has seen.
Pop is smart, I would bet on him finding a replacement for Duncan and keeping the Spurs near the top of the West. They are in a good spot with most of the traditional powers in the West looking to retool as well. They have also drafted well, featuring 5 or 6 regular contributors that they drafted.
did you guys enjoy that 8 on 5 show yall had to deal with tonight?
seriously, the NBA gives so many calls to the Thunder it makes me want to puke. Kaman gets hacked bigtime near the end of the game and no call.....Westbrook throws himself to the ground at the slightest bit of contact and gets 2 FTs.
BTW, Mayo can burn for missing those FTs....
yea refs were awful. It is what is is. OKC probably gonna play the Heat again. Maybe Knicks.
Although Clippers are stacked. STACKED
OKC fan, but I bet the Clips win the West this year.
They'll be tough to beat! the second round in the west will be epic!
It's probably going to be okc, lac, sas and Memphis playing against each other in some way
As for the mavs, dirk really isn't himself anymore, I think he is done being super dominant like he was 2 years ago or even in the playoffs last year
He's only been back from injury two games and played much of last season on a bad knee.
If you thought he looked good in the playoffs last year, why wouldn't he at least reclaim that level?
He himself said he doesnt have his legs yet. Everytime he came back from injury it took him a week. Dirks fine. However the BBIQ on this team is Kaput. Im so curious to see what Cubans plan is. A center and a PG is needed. I see Al Jefferson or Gortat. Bynum is risky and Dwight is staying in LA. Same with Chris Paul. Clippers may be deepest team I ever saw lol.
Way too early to be saying that. Dirk will be more than fine. Of course he wont be as dominant as the title run because the pieces around him fit perfectly that season. It allowed him to play the most efficient basketball of his life.
The man has played two games. TWO GAMES.
At least wait a month before you say he's done.
Where u been bro?
Banned again already? :laugh2:
Well take a win.
Now three games out and climbing.
Mixed feeling right now though.
But Ive heard twice now that we have the best non US player since Dirk coming next year. Lol I even have mixed feelings on that too.
