Well, I almost lost my marbles when I saw you compare him to Pippen, but you backed off at the end lol. Although I do see how you could make that argument, I like Ariza, but I don't think he is a necessity. In my opinion, we needed another player who could create his own shot, Marco gives us that to a certain extent, and hopefully Kawhi develops a little more.
At the end of the day, I don't see the spurs adding any new player during the offseason thats going to make much of a difference now. The Belinelli signing was their big splurge. Maybe they make a move closer to the trade deadline if there is an injury, but I don't buy the rumors about Oden, Mo or Ariza.
