End of the Week Links 11/21

  • KENS5 – Taking a look at where Roger Mason’s production has gone, and the answer is to George Hill. I did not realize this until I read the article, but Mason has a PER of 3. That’s ugly.
  • The Oregonian – Malik Hairston is patiently waiting his opportunity with the Spurs. They haven’t done him many favors by constantly needing to fight their way back into games, not exactly the ideal situation to see what Hairston can do.
  • Express-News – After Hill did a great job defending Kevin Durant he said he welcomed the opportunity to guard Dirk Nowitzki. At least Hill knows the right things to say.
  • Express-News – The Hill-Parker backcourt worked wonders in the Spurs loss to the Thunder, helping the Spurs go on a 16-2. When Parker gets healthy I would like to see the two play together more often. When the Spurs are in need of points a Parker-Hill-Ginobili-Jefferson-Duncan lineup would be awesome.
  • Spursdynasty – The guys from Spurs Dynasty try to talk the fans back from the ledge for one more week after the loss to the Jazz. I agree with them but it’s going to be hard to stay positive much longer.
  • Ball Don’t Lie – Kelly Dwyer reminds us that the Spurs are missing their 2nd and 3rd best players. Also, he shows that while us fans can’t get enough of Hill, he hasn’t exactly shined as a starting point guard. Over the last two games he averaged 16.5 points but on 16 shots, 3 assists, 1.5 rebound, and 5.5 fouls.
  • Sports Illustrated – Ian Thomsen takes a great look at Pop’s influence on the NBA, showing how his coaching tree stretches far and has been successful.
  • PTR – The Spurs have been known for finding the perfect complementary players. Who are this team’s complementary players?
  • 48MoH – Timothy Varner takes a look at what five players should finish the game for the Spurs. The big debate comes down to small ball with Hill or more traditional lineup with McDyess.
  • Mundo Albiceleste – Oh what could have been.  John gives some stats on Luis Scola’s game against the Timberwolves.
