Tough to say, Tiago had a solid season, gives us good defense and solid understanding of PnR offense and defense. Kaman would give us more shooting/scoring but is a bit older and doesn't play defense as well. Tiago did choke in the finals but played well enough leading up to the finals. It's very subjective
. Right now, the going rate for solid centers is $7-10 mil per year. Can't do much about it, plus he knows the system already. Who's to say Kaman would have picked up the system and helped right away
I personally didn't like the Tiago signing for the amount but I mos'def think that Kaman would not solve anything and would actually hurt the Spurs more than Tiago. Tiago isn't great but the Spurs got what they needed out of him the entire season and the entire playoffs, except for the Finals.
Could we as fans say the same thing if we had Kaman? Doubtful.........
