What would the pieces of a Reddick trade be?
The tale told by an idiot was Shakespeare in Macbeth.
Faulkner just used a few lines for his title….
Just a lit nerd/English teacher/Spurs fan
Bonner, De Colo, and a 1st? Maybe throw in Blair? Surely Orlando could get a better deal somewhere else….
What I was thinking. We don’t have any appealing pieces we’d be willing to offer up to Orlando in return for Redick, unless it’s them eyeing solid players they can lock up for cheap. A shame, Redick would likely be deadly using Neal’s minutes.
Here is the spin for Spurs fans that is going to be peddled here in the next few hours or day (s). “sometime the best deals are the ones you don’t make”.
So, no move at all? I’m surprised Blair didn’t go, but that’s okay. He’s still good with the right matchups, and if teams weren’t willing to give equal value, might as well keep him around.
Well, that was fun…
I’m just glad we kept Stephen Jackson. We need to have him chasing Durant around if we have a chance to avenge last year’s loss.
We didn’t make a move, but neither did our major competitors, and considering I think we are better than they are, that’s an okay scenario for me.
I wouldn’t have been upset if Spurs traded for Smith but I also know why they stood Pat. Last year we lost because Danny Green went cold and was clearly overwhelmed. Now he has experience and is playing even better. Leonard had some rookie moments. Now he also has experience and is playing a lot better. Parker couldn’t out-run Sefolosha. Now he is playing the best ball of his career. He no longer has to out-run anybody and his jumper is the best it has ever been. Splitter was rendered obsolete after the Hack-a-Splitter. Now he is playing Much better and has become a better freethrow shooter. This group has been there and done that, now it’s their turn to get over the hump.
Isn’t that part of the renowned “Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow…” soliloquy? Haven’t read Macbeth since high school. Good times.
