    Gasol just had a pretty good season while Timmy D prolly had one of his worst seasons. Definite upgrade

    Going to be a GSW-SAS WCF.

    Just call off the regular season

    So he was fielding 19-22mil offers from other teams and settle for 15m from the spurs. Sounds about right.

    He's the anti-Payton Manning with this move, playing against El Wopper Grande in the same division. Good for him tho, anything to offset the kd move...

    Look for the anti-GS movement of players signing at discount to join Spurs. Got to be so lucky to be the fans of GSW and SAS right now.
