    Hey look 5 took a great amount of sting out of the Bonner/Finley Era 2008 - 2013 .
    Was reading over an older post and......
    Amid the previous Scola or not speculation, as to getting a real PF/SF combo was his buyout too big? etc.

    I knew i had read from a solid source that the Spurs could in fact have had Lewie Scola. Here is the exact post:

    The Spurs could have had Scola here. They chose Bonner instead. It wasn't a matter of being cheap. They just made a different personnel decision.
    Anyone wanna guess the source?

    It can't be rectified.
    We now have an extremely solid 3/4 combo player in Kwahi.

    But, it's an interesting storyline to Dynasty Derailed.
    Would you rather read about canthinkofanythings anal warts?

    Obviously, nothing good has happened to the Spurs since they made that choice and Scola has become a guy that no team would ever trade.

    Yeah, who cares. Having Scola may have meant they'd have had to make other personnel decisions and not have the players they had last season or now.
    20/20 hindsight, I'll still take the ring and a chance for another.

    Lol " bonner/finley era". It was the turnobili/injured turnobili era, Scola would not have fixed that.

    Noooo. No.
    A 3/4 combo is exactly what we needed at the time (summer 2005 6 7 8 9) for a repeat.

    Scola has never ever been a 3.

    Sure the Spurs could have used him, but there's no need to make up.

    No the Spurs did get one Championship in 7 years.

    and Scola has become a guy that no team would ever trade
    You're trying to fabricate him into a superstar #1 piece.
    I am correctly fitting him on the Spurs as an excellent role player. Exactly what the Spurs frontline needed at the time.

    Btw good players get traded all the time.
    Likewise just because someone has not been traded does not mean they are good.

    In terms of defense, that would have been exactly the same.

    I was going to make a joke about Tony Parker sleeping with Scola's wife which would have led to the breakup of the lineup.

    But then came across this weird pic..

    Facepalm.
    Lewie Scolas defense vs Mike Finleys and Matty Bonbons?
    For that matter Obertos after his one and only good year 2007.
    Please.

    Rumpy attempting to claim Mike Finley and Bonner both play better D then Scola.
    Your basketball cred rating, already at zero has gone sub zero.

    Scola was a mistake just like Dragic or Barbosa. Thanks goodness our batting percentage is still very high and we benefitted richly from being an international player pioneering franchise.

    Scola was very good when he first came into the NBA. Just because he declined a bit after that does not mean he would not have provided at least 3-4 exceptional years to the Spurs and been a perfect fit.

    The debate at the time was whether his game would translate and it obviously did when he was still in his prime. He was always a PF while Duncan preferred that position strongly over center so that was likely why we passed him over at the time.

    My claim is they are all pretty bad at defense for one reason or another. Kind of a wash overall.

    You said Scola plays the three.

    lol
