    New Orleans offered Cousins a 2 year/40 million contract right before the Playoffs started.  He turned it down. They pulled the offer. 

    He wants a ring.  Can't blame him.

    That's all on Trae Young.  I'm not a Grayson Allen fan by any means, but he's unjustly being targeted as the cause for the altercation here.

    Allen makes no attempt to initially remove himself from Young.

    Seriously? Dude locks up the shooter's arm and then leans on top of him and you blame the shooter?

    Oh come on.   He's playing defense.  Young makes no attempt not to get himself tied up in the first place then continues to make it worse as the play ends.

    After the hook and the foul, it appears that Allen drives his shoulder into Young's gut.  That's what stood out to me.

    Allen has his arm out and Young pivots left and as Allen's arm is there and not moving Young then pulls Allens head down which makes Allen pissed and heads Young in the gut.

    Both are at fault.  I do love the rough play though.

    No trade. Parker signed free agent deal with the Hornets.

    Article I read said Spurs wanted him in a mentorship role. Don't know if that means a transition to coaching or a reduction in playing time. Anyways, he said it was an "emotional" decision, but that he needed to move on.

    Don't quite get the decision to go with Charlotte since he'll be backing up Walker and that wouldn't be as many minutes as he's been getting. Could be he wanted to play for the new head coach, who was a San Antonio assistant. I guess I would call myself a Hornets fan. They're the closest team and the one I pay most attention to. They really needed a quality backup to Kemba, so looking forward to seeing how he does.

    I wouldn’t. Young fell apart when he was under pressure. Grayson doesn’t.

    Parker also no where near being a starter anymore.... Spurs prob low balled him, plus all the Kawhi stuff...good time to go. Tony was unreal from 2003-2015....speed, developed great jumper.

    Spurs should try to get Brandon Ingram, Hart and (1) 1st rounder from Laker and move on. Kuzma prob not available. You get that package and mix them with Lonnie Walker, Derrick White, Dejounte Murray and you have real good young talent you can add to and build something 3-5 years down the line. No ones beating Golden State anyway. Kawhi stories that are emerging are making him look like a mindless ass. If you wanna go home and play for Lakers/Clippers there is a classier way to do this. I don't buy any of this injury nonsense. The Spurs have been overly careful on their players health, so much so the league got pissed with all the stars sitting out games during the season.

    What I don't get is that SA has always been a class act organization so I don't understand why Kawhi and Parker would want to leave?
  • CROJAM95CROJAM95 Posts: 5,735
    Parker just wants to play. Dejounte has emerged, Patty Mills gets lotta minutes.

    Kawhis uncle supposedly is running the show and wants him in LA. The puzzling question is, are they prepared to leave about $80M on the table? Spurs can offer that Supermax of over $220m, and it has to be signed by October or he has to requalify for it. Lakers can only offer 4 yrs at a lesser rate. Plus Texas has no state income tax, and Kawhi was finals mvp. The Spurs have shown they can get it done, but I heard Kawhi discouraged big Free Agents don’t want to come to SA.

    Former NBA player Kermit Washington sentenced for charity fraud


    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Former NBA player Kermit Washington has been sentenced to six years in federal prison for spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in charity donations on vacations, shopping sprees and plastic surgery for his girlfriend.

    The U.S. attorney's office says Washington, 66, also was ordered Monday to pay nearly $970,000 in restitution. Washington, of Las Vegas, pleaded guilty in November in federal court in Kansas City, Missouri, to making a false statement in a tax return and aggravated identity theft.

    Washington played for five NBA teams in the 1970s and 1980s and is best known for throwing a punch that fractured Houston Rockets player Rudy Tomjanovich's face and left him unconscious during a 1977 game. Washington was playing for the Los Angeles Lakers at the time.



    I remember when he did this when he was playing:
