Brent Barry

I was wondering if we were going to keep barry when the season begins, or if were still looking to trade him for a decent sf.

You trade Tim Duncan it's almost equal to trading David Robinson. The repercussions go beyond simply basketball.

it would be too cruel to send tim duncan to cleveland ohio.

I'd be the first to say if the Spurs traded Tim I'd leave the franchise behind me. I'd go with Tim.

I think they paid him just about what he was worth. Sentimental value is different than market value. And of course, market value is sometimes different than real value.

I think most agree they ended up paying him what he was worth but he was initially lowballed by Pop and David fought back by giving the story to Buck at the Express and then the fans and especially ownership leaning on Pop to make sure David was brought back.


Come on people, this is an old and well-known story.

He played on the Bulls. He was there the year Jordan broke his foot. He played all 82 games and went for 16.2 per game.

Same here too! No way would we trade Tim for Lebron! What has Lebron accomplished?
Nothing! Tim in his second year won us a Championship!

Those of us who saw the Spurs in that first year before the acquisition of Gervin wil tell you that when Ice came aboard it all changed, on the court, in the stands everything.

This thread was originally about Barry?

I would keep Barry unless we are getting a younger version of a Bruce Bowen.

Which is one of the reasons my loyalty to the Spurs only run so deep. I don't buy all this 'character' junk half the time. The men who make that team up, the Robinson's and Duncan's, posses the character. The rest of the organization is a business.

at this stage in his career i dont think you trade duncan for anyone in the league. i mean lebron is a good player that hasnt acomplished anything yet and he has lots of potential, but what has he done? he is probably gonna be great tru, but i think at this point in time, wade is more valuable than lebron basketball wise. how many times have we seen wade hit a game winning shot? lebron only had a bunch of game winning layups against a hidious wizard defense that even bruce bowen would have gotten. i know this will probably get a lot of heat but every time i see a close situation for the cavs and lebron goes to the line he chockes. he always misses late free throws. that is something mj, kobe, wade and even DUNCAN dont do usually(duncan makes clutch free throws) so i try to not get too caught up in his hype and see him for the player that he is....a bigger version of gilbert arenas. maybe when he hits his prime it will be different but as far as im concerned duncan is the best player in the nba followed by kobe/wade

Maybe we should change the title of this thread since most posters are talking about trading superstars vs role players.

I love Barry's game and hope he stays. However, I understand that he is the best trade bait we have -- except that it hasn't enticed anyone to deal with us.

Come on people, this is an old and well-known story.
I dont know if u can really say Pop lowballed D-Rob. The way I remember it, Pop gave D-Rob 3 different scenarios in an attempt to show Robinson that the less money he took the stronger the team would be. Robinson's agent didnt like any of the 3 proposals and brought up the fact that NY was willing to overpay Robinson for the last few years of his career, And Pop rightly figured that for that kind of money he might as well try to get a player that was in his prime (C-webb).

Of course we all know how it worked out, Webber turned the SPurs down and Pop gave Robinson an increased offer which he signed. I have no problem at all with how Pop handled the situation, even though Robinson has always been 1 of my favorite players, continued success for the franchise comes first.

Webber was just getting around to just contacting the Spurs when Holt and the rest of the ownership came down on Pop to make a deal with David.

In all of Pop's scenarios - as you call it - David either accepted a $2-$2.5 a year offer or retire. David made $14 million the year before. After all david did for the team and franchise financially you would think they could have paid him back just a bit at the end of his career.

BTW, it was Finley the Spurs wanted to sign that summer but he was the one that immediately said No to Pop. Webber became the next choice after that especially after David balked at their offer(s).

So how would Timmy and C-Webb worked on the floor together? Wouldn't that have been just like Timmy and Scola?

Back to Barry...

I do see him leaving along with E.Will, and maybe even Bonner (if the price is right). Whether this happens before the season starts, or at the trade deadline, all depends on what's out there.

Loyalty to the people who created your franchise is as valuable. It's not like Webber has even done much since then or done so greatly that it was worth what we risked.

BS.
No way was JLO gonna leave all those millions on the table by walking away from Indy.
And actually the big the Spurs were going after that summer after Kidd was E. Brand and not JLO.

I would have balked at that one too, I may not be much of a ball player, but I bet I've got enough hustle in me to get $2mil a year....Drob was worth way more than that those last two years.

no, Miami signed Brand to an offer sheet which the Clips matched but...

both the Spurs and Miami made similiar poison-pill offers but Brand choose Miami over San Antonio. So he rejected the Spurs.

Are u sure?? I seem to remember reading that Pop offered Robinson 3 different scenarios that each varied in dollar amount showing Robinson that the less money he took then the more flexibility the F.O. would have in picking up another impact F.A. I dont remember it being a 2.5 million take it or leave it offer..........And I do remember the Spurs going after Finley but I thought that was the D.A. summer but i believe u if say it was that summer.

ya thats what i thought, i thought brand was a different year! but i could be wrong, i remember the spurs goin after brand and him flat out rejecting us, but oh well, he would have been an AMAZING addition, even better than JO IMHO, just because of the fact that he stays healthy.

yeah, he did but that was hindsight. At the actual time, he never even gave the Spurs a chance and pretty much said no to other teams right away.

Like someone said earlier, there was no way he was leaving all that extra money on the table by coming to the Spurs

agree, especially since he stayed a Spur instead of going to the Magic a few years ago.
