    He got paid and the Spurs retain their team. I like that he stayed in SA. I want to eliminate them next year in the playoffs at full force.

    Not a good move....

    I know many will disagree with me, but SA just made a mistake.

    I love Boris. Seems a little high though, especially with the Spurs window being less than three years. Somewhere around $5 million/year would've been ideal.

    Excellent contract!

    It will be nice to get Pau Gasol to put us over the top, and repeat as champions! :grin:

    J.R. - I guess it's impossible for you to sleep this time of year right?

    Partial guaranteed final year. Great contract by the spurs. Not over paying at all.

    Finally we get some news with people signing again.

    It's not exciting, but I'll take it.

    Good move for the Spurs. This is a deal they can get out of after 2 years. Diaw is worth more to them than other teams.

    Kill me if they manage to get Pau to take the MLE. A bigs rotation of Duncan, Splitter, Diaw, and Gasol would dominate and allow for a lot of rest.

    On any other team, Diaw would seem overpaid.

    On the Spurs, that contract looks pretty solid.

    Yeah, I feel like its an okay move based on their situation. Lot o money for Diaw but no doubt he had offers from other teams for around that amount.

    Boris Diaw a NBA champion. With the Spurs at that.

    Contract is deserved I guess.
