Sweep the leg, Johnny...
To be fair with S&B, we also don't need to spend another 1st round pick in a backup PG. We already have one to develop and we can always find a vet for cheap that will more reliable than anyone we can find with a late 1st or an early 2nd.
If we get a late 1st or an early 2nd, I prefer to see the Spurs getting a good young Euro prospect and let him develop in Europe. Someone like Furkan for example.
Even if Lorbek is just the next Matt Bonner, at least there's a chance he might be able to hit shots in the playoffs. Let's do this.
I don't care what we do just as long as Ginger is not with us next year!!
Spanish league final is tied 2-2. Last game of the series will be Saturday at 11am CST.
Lorbek was huge in game 4 with 24 points scored (Barcelona won 81-75). It's crazy how skilled he is. He is a true joy to watch.
This guy is 28 already? I'm excited for him, but damn that's disappointing.
Bruno any boxscores for these games want to check out his rebounding #s, etc.
Nevermind found it:
I think I have mentioned this before but if he did sign with the Spurs, fans won't cringe when he posts up and goes for a hook shot. Another thing (again if signed), Pop should test his big shot ability early on in the season, draw up some game winning shots for him, see how he handles the pressure.
Also if we can't sign both Lorbek and Diaw, I'm on the fence on which I would want more. I would like to add De Colo to the team as well because back up PG is still a missing link. So if it comes down to both Lorbek/Diaw and no De Colo or vice versa, I'd go with choosing 1 big with the PG.

"So the final image of Ginobili isn’t that he lost a bronze medal. It’s what he did to try to win one." -
Still crazy after all these years. “And I love that,” Jackson said. “I’d rather play with someone like him, who plays hard and gets hurt, than someone who is afraid.”
- SJAX regarding Manu
Well the word on the street is that De Colo is about 90% a Spurs the only reason I don't see him if some major trade comes up. So that gives us our backup PG and between Lobrek and Diaw I want the guy who can play defense and give us offense when Duncan is sitting...so sign LOBREK>
From the game today, that quickstep move in the paint and dunk was pretty impressive.
Wouldn't mind seeing more of this:

Bruno, if Lorbek were to sign with the Spurs, do you think he would be the 2nd best bigman in our rotation as soon as next season?
In an infinite universe where reality is interpreted through our continuously fluctuating perception, providing any kind of absolute definitive proof of anything becomes little more than speculation based on random data.
Spurs bigmen under contract are Duncan, Splitter, Bonner and Blair. If you add Lorbek to these players, it's taking a risk because he might turn into a bust in NBA or at least need a year to make the transition and Spurs bigmen rotation will suck. So, while I would really like to see Spurs adding Lorbek, it would be way better if they add too another solid proven bigman like Diaw.
No need for him this season we need athletic big's who can play defense we can score enough points we need to get more stops.
Lorbek played awesome yesterday, could've scored even more if it wasn't for the bad FT shooting (2/6). He has great technique, far better than Bonner, and I would have nothing against seeing him instead of Matt next season.
Getting rid of Blair is not bid deal but getting rid of Bonner or Neal you give up a lot of offense be that in the regular season. That is why I like Lobrek he can produce in both areas. Sure I am game to replace Blair with a shot blocking rebounding TALL project but I want Lobrek to replace Booner.
Yes, really. No matter how smart your mom told you that you are, it's not true. I hate to break it to you, but you are as dumb as a bag of rocks.
Any more questions?- Kori to Poland
Game should start in about 8-10 minutes
Halftime, Barcelona leads Real Madrid: 39-34
Lorbek in foul trouble, picked up his 3rd foul a couple minutes into the 3rd quarter had to be taken out; pretty low key game for him so far: 2 pts, 4 boards
Anytime Barcelona goes up 8-9 pts, Real makes a run to get back within 2-3, probably end up being a close game
