Wonder why the Spurs aren't complaining about being over the cap?

Maybe Holt is feelin' a little more secure than he has been the past few years. Just a guess:

Caterpillar's big bet on the U.S. economy | Reuters





A scratched and worn Caterpillar logo is pictured at the back of a bulldozer in the rental equipment yard of Holt Caterpillar, the largest Caterpillar dealer in the United States, in San Antonio, Texas March 19, 2012.

Having misjudged how deep the U.S. economy would decline, the world's largest maker of construction machinery reduced its workforce by 33,000 people worldwide in 2009, closed plants and posted lower profits.

But the company has mounted a quick recovery and is emerging as the poster child for America's manufacturing renaissance. In 24 months, 15 Caterpillar facilities have been built or updated in the United States, tens of thousands of workers have been added to the payroll and $2 billion is committed for capital investments on its home soil this year.

we've always been over the cap.

it's the fact we weren't much of a title contender and we were hitting the luxury tax that made Holt worry.

Holt is a dealer. The company's manufacturing decisions have little to no bearing on his personal bottom line.

He's not complaining about the luxury tax he's going to have to pay this year because he sees our championship window re-opened -- and possibly for another couple of years if either Splitter or a free agent becomes a scoring big to take over for Duncan.

I thought Sean Elliot said something about bringing in that big man from Indiana this summer?

don't know about that, he is a valued big man in the NBA and I doubt Larry Bird would part ways with a guy like that. HE knows the value of a fundamentally sound big man to a team because Hibbert is in the "Chief" mold.


However During the lock out Roy was part of Tim Duncan's "basketball mini camps"
