Last offseason, the Spurs had a choice to either pay him $9M/yr or try to fill the gap with a free agent signing, and since we don't have Captain Hindsight as the Spurs GM who could have reliably picked one of the underpaid centers to sign, I really can't complain. He fills the role of the big man we have to start when Diaw is too small and unfortunately in the NBA free agent market, those guys get paid a lot of cash.
You name them... Cause whoever you name, they are probably better... Asik, Gibson, RobinlLopez...you? I think you may be as good... For the money, you can probably give me anyone.. .
