Spurscast #221: Jasikevicius!

Jeff and I got together to talk some San Antonio Spurs news, even though it’s one of the slowest NBA months.

We talked about the one current Spur and two potentially future Spurs who are representing the silver & black in Turkey for the 2010 FIBA World Championship. Tiago Splitter will be playing for a powerhouse Brazil team. With the loss of Nene, Splitter should see more playing time, which worries both of us about the possibility of injury.

Nando de Colo, will be playing for France, and with Tony Parker not playing, de Colo should see plenty of playing time to prove himself and really gain some beneficial experience. Robertas Javtokas will be representing Lithuania. He kept his cool in one of the “friendlies” against the United States and it’ll be good to see where he is at with his career.

We also talked about Danny Ferry coming back to the Spurs, I struggle to remember a former foreign NBA player’s name coach Popovich wanted on the squad, some of the latest content on Project Spurs and we make fun of John Karalis of Red’s Army on his NBA 2K10 player getting destroyed by video game Richard Jefferson.
