http://www.spurstalk.com/forums/get (broken link) all your latest spurs and basketball news here...good site and gets addicting like this one at times. Bringing Shaq to the Spurs is like bringing the Mailman to SA. And we almost did that. I wouldnt know weather to boo or cheer him. Check that I would boo his ass. We need to get younger and stronger. Time to brong one of our overseas prospects out and not trade them away for nothing like we did Scola.

I am a die hard female Spurs fan living in New Jersey. Very upset that the Spurs got out in the first round to many players got injured. Hope that next season the Spurs will be number 1 once more.
Shaq will never go to the Spurs, I agree it would be very interesting seeing a Shaq, Duncan, Parker, Manu lineup if this would be possible.
GO SPURS GO.

Spurs need to do something this off season to shake things up. That would be an interesting mix, but Shaq hated SA for many years. And we would really need to give up a valuable player to get him probably.

My .02
Not true at all. Hedo was a promising talent playing in the shadow of Peja. Hedo was inconsistent and had a rep of no showing in the playoffs and showing up at the beginning of every season out of shape. He showed flashes of being a really good player but he wasn't an integral part of the Kings.

When the Spurs made the three team trade and basically got him and Ron Mercer for expiring contracts it looked like a good deal. However, midway through the season Ron Mercer was waived and in the end Hedo had a so-so regular season but was invisible in the playoffs which helped lead to a second round exit.

Hedo now is NOT the Hedo of then with the Spurs or Magic. He barely broke out two seasons ago.

Not true at all. The Spurs wanted to resign him but for the right amount. Orlando exceeded that amount so the Spurs didn't match because for his talent (at the time) it was a deal that over paid him and the Spurs weren't looking to go into the lux tax threshold.

Yes, agreed. It isn't as if the franchise came tumbling down because they didn't resign Turkoglu. He's a much better player now and I say more power to him. I only wish Hedo and Orlando could defeat the hated Lakers though.

It's more the team that beats the Spurs that they hate. Do you remember .04?

Agreed on the 'not a go-to scorer' with the Kings (not Magic).

Disagree on integral, as every player who contributes on a Team is an integral part of the success, even if a role player.

I remember Hedo having great playoff games when he was with the Kings, which is why I was excited when he did come to the Spurs.
