Not expecting this...
3 years at the minimum?
shouldnt be too much of a bad thing.
What can wind do for you?
WTH! What about "The Cornerstone"?
actually I Like It!!! The youth movement has begun.
dunno what to say......surprise for sure
Well, they were looking for shooters...
Lots of posters eating crow tonight... lol
Dude has one stud game in Summer League and earns himself a three-year gig. Not a bad days work.
Something else to keep an eye on, I suppose. Temple certainly isn't resting as easy tonight.
Wow, all three guaranteed? I don't believe it.
temple,gee,hairston should get interesting.
So we go from he looks like Bowen to he looks like Elie?
Wow. I'm guessing only the first season is guaranteed.
Pretty damn shocking since the Spurs have a lot of depth at shooting guard. Where does Neal fit with Ginobili, Hill and Anderson getting time at shooting guard? Plus, Temple, Gee and Hairston could potentially also play the two.
I liked Neal in summer league but an unathletic 6-foot-4 shooting guard has an uphill climb to make the NBA.
Congrats, Choo Choo.
Alvin Gentry and the Worst Analogy ever:
Prior to yesterday's game three showdown at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Suns coach Alvin Gentry offered some rather, um, unusual words about trying to defend Kobe, Pau and the mighty, mighty Lakers:
"It’s almost like being a dike, you stick a finger in one hole and water comes out of another one... We’ve just got to find a way to have a whole lot of fingers, I guess."

December 28, 2009
Now in his third season in Europe after an eventful NCAA career, few American guards are thriving as much as Gary Neal is in Italy right now. He leads the league in scoring at over 20 points per game, and is managing to do so in an extremely efficient manner (65% 2P, 37% 3P, 5 FTAs per game) despite shouldering an absolutely massive offensive load for retooling Benetton Treviso.
Neal operates as Benetton’s main facilitator and is looking absolutely outstanding creating shots for himself and others on the pick and roll, being arguably the most complete offensive player in that league.
While no one will confuse him with Steve Nash anytime soon, he has improved his playmaking skills substantially while keeping his turnovers to a minimum. Neal is very effective off the dribble and possesses a terrific mid-range game, needing very little space to get his shot off thanks to his quick release and excellent body control, being equally dangerous coming off screens.

Snip snip for Hairston and Jerrells, I'm guessing.
Correct me if i'm wrong, but i though Gee and Temple still under contract coming year
Either that, or the Spurs are getting ready to move Hill and Gino to PG full-time...
