Spurs sign Manu to two-year deal

Is this a smart move or a dumb move?  Manu is probably one of the most creative and talented offensive players I’ve ever seen (remember when he passed the ball between somebody’s legs on an inbounds play during the NBA Finals?)…and yet, his play in the Finals and playoffs was less than stellar.

For example, check out this graph:

Manu was up-and-down throughout the playoffs.  And he played atrociously in the last two games of the NBA Finals (which are not included in the above graph) scoring only 27 points, and committing 12 turnovers in Games 6 and 7.  Can Manu be a game-changer?  Absolutely.  But has the probability of a game-changing performance from Manu declined drastically?  Absolutely.

Dwight Howard will announce his “Decision” on Friday

Hallelujah!  I want to move on from all these Dwight Howard rumors.

Also, several teams are going to have a pretty bad Fourth of July weekend…

Trick-or-Treat Tony Allen signs deal with the Memphis Grizzlies

Great job by the Grizzlies.

Tony Allen is a roller coaster, offensively.  But on defense, I don’t think there’s a better wing defender in the entire league.

Is the race for Kyle Korver heating up?

And apparently, the Milwaukee Bucks have offered Korver a three-year, $20 million deal for the Ashton Kutcher look-a-like.
