my sense is that Rivers has generally done a good job of utilizing these sorts of limited-skill, limited-minutes role players and got decent use out of Hollins in Boston, considering his limited upside.

Serious. You're dealing with an immature, egotistical diva. If you really want him, why not go ahead and do silly stuff like this to stroke his ego if you think it might help? Admittedly, I have no idea if it actually will help.

Agreed. He's a useful role player who is fairly versatile defensively, and a hard-nosed energy guy who seems like a good teammate. Also a guy who is willing to be a bit of an enforcer when people are hacking on Griffin.

Yes, he does seem to have a history of being willing to take a bit less money to play for California teams where he thinks he can fit into a good role. I've always liked him since he was at UCLA (as a player anyway, he seems like he could be either pretty cool or a complete ass off the court). He grew up in Southern Cal (somewhere in the Inland Empire if I recall correctly), which may factor into it for him.

I just came across this, one of my favorite basketball ads. Too bad the quality is not so great.This is another, longer version with more players (funny to see who they used) and lyrics.

Thrilled to announce that as I always hoped, I'm gonna stay with the @spurs for two more years. #gospursgo.

Manu, for 2 years / $14m. Surprised he's still making so much.

He should give it away to the fans. Fucking guy.

Manu still has value. when he played well the Spurs were winning their finals games. I guess he's just at the point where the team can't rely on him heavily every game.

he's also a marketing dream for the Spurs, being the premier Latino star of the league still

Problem is he played one good game during the finals and practically gave two of them away. lol8[1].gif

lols...hiring a rookie who's just happy to be a HC and doesn't realize how soul suckingly miserable it's going to be to coach a tanking team with a punk ass star

Thanks. I don't know how I missed that one back in the day. It is great.
