Things that make Tiago a great fit for the SPurs (not a saviour nor MVP candidate):
-he sets really quick screen: a must if u have to play alongside Tony aka Flash ahaaa
-he is a very smart player off the ball on D and on O
-he is finishing better under the basket and passing better under de basket
-he is hititng a better % at the ft line considering he is being fouled a lot
-relieves presure from TD in the O end and helps disrupting on D (he might not be a great defender; plays more like Oberto did for us)
-has great hands and can grab pretty much anything u throw at him
-cant bounce-pass well enough=TO
-can pass to the 3pt shooter pretty decently
Our big risks in the post season: they r gonna guard our pick n' roll and cause us a lot of turnovers. If he is able to adjust to that reality, I expect a 2007-Oberto type of impact. Couldn't ask for more.
With 26 points on 4 of 4 shots from distance in only 20 minutes of PT. Efficient eviceration.
Wolves' fan: ginobili vs. the wolves is like he's just kind of laughing to himself all game...kind of like he thinks it's cute that they're trying to play basketball.
