    That would be a great fit for him, too, wouldn't it?

    Wesley Johnson will be going to the TIMBERWOLVES... although I wanted him to tear his ACL every game he played for Syraucse... once he's out of the NCAA he's no longer a filthy rotten traitor. I can cheer for him.

    Also I hope the best for Brackins. He WILL be a stud in the NBA. He's the next Garnett style versatile PF.

    Johnson will be drafted by the Nets. Favors is headed to the Wolves.

    The Spurs would be an excellent team for CB. Pop might be the best coach in the game and gets more out of his players than anyone else. CB just keeps moving up in these projections.

    Exactly. Pop can talk to Craig about what it takes to develop as a big man in the NBA, pointing to Robert Horry and Tim Duncan and that Admiral guy. He has a pretty good track record.

    I think after this post season, the Spurs realize they need to not only have a more versatile scoring option, but also get tougher inside. We know that CB has that ability. This would really be a great situation for CB.

    Pop likes less heralded guys like Bonner, but CB is a much better athlete than Bonner and has a better inside game.

    This was a team that I hoped would want Craig. I do hope this is going to happen. It's a good deal for our guy all the way around.
    And he'd have a coach that could teach him the value of defense.

    Yeah, only concerns would be if Parker will be there long term, how many miles Duncan has left on him, and if Pop wants to stick around and coach a team that isn't a championship threat (if Duncan is wearing down of course).

    That's a big thing to consider there.
    I was going to respond earlier that the Spurs also saw their need to get younger, since they have a need there as well.
    I guess maybe it does just depend on whether Pop wants to build again.

    CB should change his name to Antonius Krevalaski and will be a shoe-in with my Spurs.

    You know, on NBA TV the other day, they were replaying the '92 draft, and Horry went #10 to the Rockets, and Hubie Brown and Doug Collins killed the pick because Harold Miner was still out there. Brackins never played for a winning team at ISU, but I think he possesses some of those intangibles that Horry had.

    How's this for a little scenario...

    Duncan, who may have a couple good years left in him, gets surrounded by an infusion of youth (CB?) and a veteran scorer (Joe Johnson?), to go with their stable of vets (TP & Ginobli), coupled with the fact that the best player in the game, Kobe, decides to go play in Europe for two years (wild I know). CB's career starts to emulates Horry's and he goes on to win seven rings.

    If that sounds familiar, well, people thought Hakeem was wearing down and only had a few good years left in him, but Horry was drafted by the Rockets, who needed an infusion of youth (Cassell & Horry) to go along with their stable of vets (Otis Thorpe & Vernon Maxwell), and added Drexler while trying to repeat while the best player in the game spent the better part of two years toiling in baseball. Horry of course played for winners the rest of his career.

    Crazy, I know, but why the hell not?

    I guess the Spurs missed the memo that Brackins is supposed to be playing in Europe next year.

    what? we do? sorry but in three years you would think we would have seen tough at least once.

    on the other hand, i'm excited for criag to get into the NBA and show what he's got, I think coach pop would be a great fit for him. I want to see craig go to a team that has a fighting chance.
