Haha hit his ceiling? The dude just played his first full year in the NBA (staying healthy and getting decent minutes) and is only 28 yrs old. Tony Parker elevated his game plenty since he was 28 and he had been in the NBA for a good amount of time prior to that. I don't think its unrealistic to think that Splitter has room to grow. I'm not the biggest Splitter fan by any means but I can appreciate what he brings and when he starts to get over 30 mins a game I bet he brings more to the table. And I would rather see him playing next to Duncan in Timmy's final years instead of going to another team and having to watch whatever 2nd rate big man SA brings in to have to take so much time learning the offensive and defensive schemes. No thanks
