Last weekend, it was announced that Tony Parker and the Spurs agreed to a four year, $50 million contract extension. There was a major sigh of relief from the greater San Antonio area.
To some fans, it may have just been a blurb at the bottom of their TV screens across the country. But to Spurs fans, it means a whole lot more than that. It even raises some questions.
What does this mean for George Hill's long-term viability in the Alamo City?
Does this mean the window is propped open for possible championships for the Spurs?
Will the rumors of Parker's possible move to New York finally stop?
Will Spurs coach Gregg Popovich unleash the potential of a very potent uptempo game, utilizing star Tim Duncan in a role akin to Kareem Abdul Jabbar for the Lakers in the late 1980s?
Hopefully we can address some of these issues and maybe more, as we look at the possible effects of this major deal.
As always, read, review, respond and enjoy.
