Bruce Bowen Interview

KSAT 12 interviewd Bruce about the trade on the 5 pm news. He said that they know the NBA is a business and Rasho is a guy you keep in touch with even though he is no longer on the team. He will miss him.

On another station, Bruce said that he likes the Red Rocket and that he was pulling for the Heat. He was happy for a few members of the Heat staff. He was glad that dallas didn't win. His words were "I'm thrilled that dallas didn't win it. Oh, poor them. Being as they went through so much, you know, as far as adversity (insert Bruce rolling eyes and sarcastic tone here). Um, I'm saying too much now." Right on Bruce

I'm sure we'll probably see this in an article one day.

Another Spur heard from.

Bowen hated Riley and Riley hated him. But I guess the hate on the Mavs can make you forget everything else.

I can't remember so much animosity for one team. I guess that's what you get when the owner and team complain so much.

Hmmm...the fact that Big Shot Rob and Bruce pulled for Miami tells you quite a bit. If they truly felt the Mavs did (and should) have won their series, they would have no problem pulling for them to win the whole thing. By them rooting against them speaks volumes...especially when they publically admit it.

Really? Do you have any documentation on that? I would think Riles would love a player like BB. BB is extremely similar to Michael Cooper who Riles coached in LA and who won DPOY.

When Bruce came here Riles said he was one dimensinal and would never be more than an average player. His leaving Miami was on bad terms.

Michael Cooper and him have extremely similar careers. Cooper was mediocre offensively too. Lakers used him for 5 rings you would think Riley would know that and how important a player like that is to your team. Coop was NBA DPOY in 1986-87.

There was definitly hard feelings - at least for Bruce towards Riley. He was too nearsighted to see what Bruce could and would become, and too arrogant to think he could be wrong.

Riley still helped develop Bruce's game. He took a raw athletic guy and helped shape him into a defensive stopper.

Actually, I remember Coop VERY WELL. He was a better offensive player than Bowen. He had good range on his shot (though I think Bowen is a lil' more accurate from his spot) and his long arms helped him finish pretty well. I remember him throwin' it down on a few people over his career. As far as handlin' the ball, I think he and Bowen are pretty even.

Bruce is at the point where if he has an open jumpshot, 9/10 times I feel like he was gonna make it this past season. He's the only Spur I felt that way about .
