Lotsa talk about Rasheed to Boston, Cleveland and Orlando.
Kurt Thomas, Fabricio Oberto, Matt Bonner... have all done a terrific job. Much better than 99% of people (including myself) can ever dream of. However, as shown in big games or the playoffs... their play is lacking.
Rasheed Wallace is skillful enough to play as a 4 or 5. To place him with Tim Duncan will create nightmares for the league and will finally allow Gregg Popovich to get over his jealousy of the Laker acquisition Pau Gasol. All in all the Spurs will get worse with Tim Duncan due to age, get worse due to loss of depth. However, they will and shall improve with Tony Parker's improvement, the acquisition of Richard Jefferson and the potential gains of Manu Ginobili. Is this enough to win? Even with a healthy Manu, it is 'possible' that they may win the championship... but in all reality... they will NOT win the championship.
Rasheed is the difference. It is no secret that since the Lakers were open and embraced Ron Artest which caused him to turn down money to joining LA. San Antonio has been open about its liking to Rasheed Wallace's game. If he joins the same reason Ron Artest joined LA. Rasheed can and will make the difference.
