    Parker has had to day a press conference in France. Here are the parts regarding Spurs:

    About the loss against Memphis:
    I took the time to think at it. It's a big disappointment. I talked last week about it with Pop and he was truly sad. So is Duncan. We are all very frustrated after such a great regular season. It was a difficult matchup for us. We got dominated in the paint. Dallas or OKC would have been easier for us. It depends on little details. We could very well be at Dallas spot today...

    About next year:
    At the start of this season, I've said that it was our last shot to win it all. Duncan and Ginobili are getting older. It will be hard to renew the team. We will still have a good team but we can't say we will be a contender. There are young teams that come.

    Is he disappointed about to have signed an extension given that?
    Ni, I'm not. I came from a difficult season with some injuries. I only had one year left on my contract. I couldn't take the risk to turn down the 4 years extension and not securing my future.

    Will he be traded?
    In San Antonio, if someone is going to be traded, I know it will be me. Pop told me they wanted to keep me. It's a business but I don't think they will have given me an extension if their plan was to trade me.

    About his year in NBA:
    I've had on of my best season in NBA. I've improved a lot in the leadership area. In term of being a true point guard and managing games, this is my best season.

    About Spurs improving the team this summer:
    I don't see how we will be able to do that. We can't trade our young players. At the draft, you got to be lucky. Pop has always done a good job so I hope there will have some good surprises for next season's start. But if you know a 7'3" bigman who is a free agent, you can just call me (laugh)....

    The rest of the press conference was mainly about FNT and the team he owns in France.

    Thanks for the translation. Don't think anything he said was too outlandish, though I'd like to think that the Spurs FO has a little bit more optimism heading into the Free Agent season.

    Then again, it's probably hard to know WHAT to think with all of this lockout B.S. looming.

    either that or the extension was made with a trade in mind.

    I always liked how TP goes straight to the point when he talks to the media. Ye Spurs aren't contenders any more. Best players are older and young teams are just getting better. That's just a fact, no reason to paint a better picture, it's just the way it is.

    In any case if a good deal came their way I think trade him would be for the best. Parker is still young and can be the 2nd or 3rd option in a very good team, but I really can't see him staying motivated with the Spurs when Tim and Manu retire.
    It will be for the best for him and the team.

    spurs can be contenders if RJ WOULD give you 15 and 7 rebounds regular

    if he starts and manu comes off the bench maybe he will take off

    the one problem with manu coming off the bench is will neal be as good
    dallas is a old team as well
    thunder and mem are going to be tough next year

    he gets bonuses I am sure if he makes all nba team and allstar games

    also if he plays well he moves his value up more and could then get traded to a contender easier

    are you fucking kidding me? and what happened at the PG position TP??? truth is you got raped by 2 scrubs called Michael Conley and Grievis Vasquez. Truth is you shot 25% in the series opener. Truth is you had 30 assists and 20 turnovers. Truth is you and Pop are the 2 main reasons the Spurs got bounced out in the 1st round.

    Now I seen it all. Ship this motherfucker out of here

    Parker is going to be involved in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes. A massive 5 team trade is in the works as of last nights draft lottery.

    Trading TP is stupid unless you get some no brainer deal. However, TP does seem to be placing more blame on his teammates than himself for this years massive playoff failure. He's right about the future and what is hurting the team, but for the playoffs he was #1 on the list of problems which is both shocking and disappointing.

    I don't know about that. He recognizes Tim and Manu are past their primes and even if he's possibly playing as good as ever as far as an entire season goes he knows that alone won't get us to contention. I like that he's not saying that generic shit like we'll try to get better and fight for a championship next year. It would take something huge (trade) for that happen.

    And I don't want him traded because of his basketball ability, I don't want him traded but if a good move presents itself it's something Spurs should be opened about.

    Plus, If he says things like these with Tim and Manu still on the team, can you imagine his motivation when they're both retired and he's left leading the team.

    Why don't we just trade rj for Blake Griffin? That would take care of the athletic big guy we need and it would get rid of RJ. What do you think fellas?

    I think TP is explicitly stating what most people around here have suspected since 2008.

    I've been sick of this guy for years. He has the biggest ego on the team, and he isn't even close to the best player on the team, he's never been. Trade him. He's the most movable piece, it's obvious what needs to be done. If Pop truly is serious about becoming a great defensive team again, trading Parker would make a lot of sense, considering he's the worst defender on the team. Frankly, I have no idea why people are surprised he got lit up by Conley, when I actually sit down and think about it. He's been torched by scrubs many times before, such as Luke Ridnour. Trade him for size/athleticism and try your damnedest to get Dragic, imo.

    Further, why is he saying the Spurs are done as a contender? I remember people getting upset when Doug Collins said they couldn't beat Miami if they were clicking... well, this is 10x worse. It gets even worse when you realize the Spurs had the best record in the West and Parker was the main reason they didn't advance. That's an absolutely terrible attitude to have for a team that was the #1 seed in the West. Suddenly they're just going to burn out? No. Fuck that. Trade this joker. Good riddance.

    Ye trade him because he has an ego, that makes a lot of sense.

    If there's a reason to trade him, it is because he is the only one who has any market value on this team, and because he won't be the leader of this team after Tim and Manu retires. If they chose to do that it will be better now than when he turns 30.

    It's clear that this team needs a new approach. Either young talent to develop for the future, or the unlikely scenario of someone who gives us a better chance than Parker now.

    I would advocate trading Manu, although he's my favourite player, but what would we get in return?

    TP is pretty much correct, the grizzlies took it to the spurs in the paint, thanks to Bonner playing 20 minutes every single game, not enough Splitter, and the lack of length at the 2/3/4 and not enough shotblocking. Timmy can't be the sole shotblocking big on the team at his age. And Splitter is a great defensive big man but he is not a pogo stick, he is more of a positional defender. This is why Pop was a fool to resign Bonner and dump Mahinmi, who would have been a great help in this area.

    Also, Pop's decision to have the guards run under screens also paved the way for Conley to light it up. That's not really on Parker.

    Dragic and Manu would be an interesting combo to watch, Parker/Blair for Dragic/Scola doesnt sound to bad for the Spurs on paper really and would probably be a decent deal for the Rockets as well if their current rooster wouldnt be such as it is.

    I don't disagree that the Spurs can no longer be considered favorites, but I believe they are still contenders. I am anxious to see what becomes of Neal and Splitter next year.

    I also am not against trading TP if it makes the team better. Especially if we could get a lottery pick in the draft.
