    ??? If Aldridge opts in they still only have around 50 mil on books. If Green opts in thats another 10 mil added on, so that's 60 Mil. Still 42 Mil to get one or two guys, but if they move both those guys they can get to 80 mil to spend in free agency.

    Hope they aren't going for Troy Williams......Simmons probably asked for too much

    LOL

    If you ran a lineup that had Simmons/Ariza/PJ Tucker in it for any serious length of time you'd get killed. None of those guys are going to give you enough offense.

    lulz. Guess when the last year was that they won less than 50 games.

    Never once when Popovich was coach for a whole season.

    The last year the lost less than 50 was 21 years ago when David Robinson got injured, they got Duncan, and Pops fired Coach Hill and named himself the new coach.

    Make up your mind, race-troll. You probably aren't even black, just another fat dork playing a message board character from mom's basement.

    For years and years Hill didn't get over it. Hasn't spoken to Pop since.

    He isn't a diva. Talk to people in Houston that know him.
    He is respectful to Pop and works hard but forgive him if he doesn't want to be Pops whipping boy constantly.
    Some vets like Tim, Tony, David Lee might be fine with it, not everyone will be cool with that after a while.

    If both players opt out of their player options theyll have a mid 40s payroll. Cap expected to be 102. Thats only 60 million. Not 80 as was previously stated. To sign people when you are under the cap you have to do with cap space. So youd only have 102 million cap. minus 40something under contract is about 60. We dont have the details of Lavergne's second year of his deal, and Duncan has 1.8 in dead money next year

    Vegas has the Spurs win total O/U at 55.5. If you really think 45-48 wins (lol), feel free to go bet as much as you want on the under. Easy money, amirite?

    I lulz ... not to laugh at you ... bet the over/under line....because it seems well below 50 in your prediction. That's quite a prediction.

    As for the bet, you said 45-48 wins. what is the bet. what is your over/under.
