    It's pathetic... I'm not a Spurs or a Heat fan. It's just embarrassing watching this guy.

    He's not having a great game but that's completely wrong. Splitter is a solid player.

    I'd worry more how bad Manu looks than Splitter.

    this is obviously an extreme overstatement, but tonight, he sure did prove that its closer to the truth than not. again, just from tonight.

    I agree. Manu is useless. He did make some amazing passes earlier on in the game. He gave Splitter about 5 opportunities to score and Splitter got the ball snatched away from him like he was a little kid playing amongst men. It was laughable.

    You obviously haven't watched his teammate Matt Bonner. :D

    Funny you say that. It is amazing how fans think some players play like that if they weren't in the NBA. A lot of big men in the NBA would show you a whole set of skills that would surprise many if they were playing some pick up basketball.

    I remember seeing Keith Closs in the NBA and I just thought he was just a rebounder and a blocker. When I was playing in pick up basketball with and against him, he was handling the rock like he was the point guard. He did it with ease. He was swishing 3 pointers like Ray Allen. He would stick the quickest guy on defense.

    That is when I said to myself I will never say so and so suck in the NBA. Most of the players in the NBA are sacrificing their own skills to play a role. In Splitter's case, he looks like a pedestrian that anyone can handle, but he would ball anyone of us up I bet and not break a sweat.

    I actually like Splitter but his offensive game is kinda weak. He is probably gonna start for someone next year. Same with Neal and Green eventually.

    Splitter is a very good player, but he's not a star. He's a very smart, disciplined player, and runs the pick and roll almost flawlessly. But he doesn't have a lot off offensive moves, and he doesn't finish strong.

    And Green already starts...and has for like a year and a half.

    Manu is absolutely garbage right now. His passes are high, he is wreckless with the ball, and not scoring at all. I'd give every single one of his minutes to Neal at this point.
