i'm shocked y'all made it through that entire discussion without mentioning diaw. his suprising competitiveness and willingness to shoot should be one of, if not the biggest suprise so far.
Did he say he struggled against Portland going 8-12 and hitting 3-3 from the three point line? I must have misheard that because thats not struggling in my opinion.
You guys nailed some great points. I think the Spurs have come out sluggish and Parker in the first game was trying to do too much quickly instead of letting the game come to him and do what he does best, control the game.
Seems that the Spurs have come out flatter than the average WNBA team.
What I am hoping to see this year is a little more balance and less reliance on Parker.
