Yeah, it's over for this guy. I think even if the Spurs won the championship they wouldn't offer him a roster spot next year.

He's basically just in there to give Tony a breather... SPURS only lost 2 points of their lead with him in there. That's all that matters.

Is if F'n necessary to bash this dude every single game? The dude is retiring after this year, so dont f'n worry he wont be a spur next year. Any team would love to have NVE on their team, so please just chile and be glad we actually have other options.

I wouldn't agree with that. He wasn't exactly at the top of everyones wish list or even on the list in many cases.

NVE just doesnt have very much upside.

He's shooting .208 in these Playoffs.

Maybe he will hit a "big shot" here or there, but I havent seen anything to lead me to believe it.

Sucks that Pop is devoted to playing NVE only as the backup *sigh*

Im speaking of the offseason. Of course in hind site we could have went with someone else, but many teams were looking at NVE. And why not, before this year he was as solid as any vet free agent.

And the refs have managed to call 1,000 fouls in the series, everyone is getting called, he's not the only one...so what if he picked them up in 6 minutes...the last one was a no call anyways..I guarantee if Nick was on a different team that we played in the playoffs, people would be saying that we should have gotten him in the offseason.

If they can play old, slow and short NVE - Tell me why we can't play Nazr. At least we would have real height and a foot of extra shot blocking ability?????????????????

What I don't understand is other established Spurs have gotten the quickest hook in the world and have no margin for error. Nick is hopeless on defense and takes quick shots that are out of the offense, and he's got his minutes anyway.
