The Spurs' window of championship opportunity is more open than we think. With a more consistent RJ and a healthy Duncan, don't be surprised to see the Spurs win 50 games. Not to mention the production they'll be getting from Ginobili, Hill and Blair. And let's not forget Popovich is still coaching.

Good, I like Tony a lot as a PG but he is on the wrong side of his age to be invested in.
Much rather let our own Toney develop more and see if Felton is actually a long term solution.

Good deal for Tony Parker and the Spurs. Would not have work if he sign with the Knicks because they already have Felton at the point.

Amar'e is in incredible shape and that alone will help him stay effective for the majority of his deal. We also have him now unlike Parker who will be a yr older after his extension kicks in. I didn't say Parker's age is too old, he is just on the wrong side of it when you want to invest long term into some one.

Since when did 28 years old become "the wrong side" of anyone's age. If you sign him to a 5 year deal, you are capturing the remainder of his prime with a little tailing off at the end.

Q. How does Parker signing a contract extension take him off of the trading market?? Is there a no trade clause??

I believe a case can be made Parker signing an extension increases his trade value.. Other teams interested in him, Portland Blazers for one, would have wanted an extension before trading for him..

thinking that amare is somewhat better investment because he is a year younger is wrong. Amare has way more mileage on him than Parker since he has been playing in the NBA right after highschool. Plus, that clock is ticking in amare knees

I agree with you. It would be a mistake to count out the Spurs I think.

Players who sign contract extentions must stay with their current team for 90 days or until December 15th (which ever is later.) He could be traded before the deadline, but not until February, 1st.

Parker was in the NBA at age 18, but you are right about STAT's knees.

Tony Parker has signed a four-year contract extension with the Spurs worth about $50 million. Parker was rumored to want to play for the Knicks, but the Spurs appear to have been his first choice all along. "It’s great to have security, and not go through a whole season worried if I get hurt or if I play bad," said Parker. "Now I can just focus on the team and hopefully have a great season and win a lot of games."

I agree with people questioning whether the Spurs have another run left in them. Wasn't Duncan talking about retiring soon? Parker already has a few rings so maybe he just wants to stay because it's where he's comfortable.

4 years 50 million is a great deal, I think he's worried about the potential lockout.

Parker is still in his prime, he could still average 20 a game if needed. Spurs just have a lot more offensive options then before.

You could very well be right with that comment. We already have Hill, Blair, Anderson, and Splitter who are all young and have potential to at least be good pieces on a championship team.

Great deal for the Spurs, great deal for Tony Parker. Love seeing all the doubters and people calling them old. The Spurs have 3 players over the age of 30, and 3 that are 30 exactly (Bonner, Jefferson, and Simmons). They have 8 players who are younger than 30, 6 of which are 25 or younger. If you averaged out their ages it would come out to be 27.5. The Spurs are much younger than people seem to think.

I was waiting for this. Like every single season (look at old posts if you can) people say the saaaaame ole cliches about the sports but the fact of the matter is they are not winning a title anytime soon or contending for one either. The realists understand that its over for them and has been for a while. There is a reason they got swept last year they will prob get swept again this year.....

Ask Phoenix Suns fans what happened when they faced the old, passed their prime Spurs....people dont overlook them...they just cant contend anymore and it seems people alwaays put up an argument that they can so they can seem knowledgeable about basketball...

Obvious Orlando can't take Miami. Some one has to do it since the Celtics are aging.

It was one game, bruh. Miami's defense wasn't nearly as good as people pretended for it to be that game. They left Orlando open for scores of WIDE OPEN shots, and Orlando just didn't knock them down. Not to say that Orlando wouldn't have still lost, but everything varies from game to game and when Miami forms a style that teams will be able to prepare for, things will be a lot more competitive by the play offs.

Knick fans do not mind parker not being here
He wasnt in out plans, he isnt the type of player we need

Knicks know management wil try and make a trade for a 2 guard by the season's end, and just slot Melo in as the three guard next season.

Look for Gallo, Randolph, and another player to be traded from the knicks but not for a player that they already have on their radar. Call me crazy, but inorder to compete with Boston, Orlando and the Heat, you need more than three quality players on a team.

So much for New York.

Is it me or has the Spurs management completely lost their mojo the last few years.. First Manu for an insane amount of money and now Parker.. I know Parker is not that old but he has a lot of mileage on him and clearly he's lost a step or two.. Valuable sure, but neither Manu or Parker are worth that money in my opinion.. The Spurs just seem to be moving in the wrong direction...

Stop reading if you don't like people telling you what their opinions are.. It's clear that the Spurs are getting longer in the tooth and are continuing to give overly large and long contracts to guys that are possibly on the downside of their careers.. THIS is relevant whether an unknowledgeable homer like you can see it or not because it was clear that a younger and more active team like Phx ran right through them... And yes there are other reasons the Spurs lost but you cannot discount the fact that the Suns were simply younger and more athletic than the Spurs who simply could not respond.. Proof is in the pudding, their core of Duncan, Manu and Parker are slowing down and are not nearly as effective as they used to be and this is clearly keeping them from getting further into the playoffs and winning..

How is what I posted an opinion? I suppose the term "old" is subjective, but the fact remains that only 3 of the Spurs are over 30 years old (McDyess, Duncan, and Manu). Duncan isn't as great as he used to be, but he's still one of the top power forwards in the league. Ginobili is still a dynamic scorer and playmaker, as long as he remains healthy. McDyess is a roleplayer and is in great shape for his age. Parker is 28 years old. He was banged up last season, yes, but the season before that he averaged 22 points and 6.9 assists per game. The dude is good.

By all means though, keep ignoring the facts and pretending like the Spurs are all old and useless. We'll see how things shake out by the end of the season.

It's funny how people blame the players when they receive bad contracts instead of the GMs and Owners that sign them to these bad contracts.

The Spurs have a team that will keep them relative for a few more years, but they won't do anything in the playoffs with the core they have locked up (i.e., get past the Lakers), and at worst they will set back their rebuilding stage years ahead instead of starting now.
