He told you not to disturb him when he was cleaning his room.

That's to bad.... I liked him... damn that hip injury!

He still got game and is only 32. Big men usually go to 35 or 36 these days.

Still got game? No he don't, that's why he's retiring (and one could strongly argue he never had game in the first place).

It wasn't his game that was the issue; it was his health. H played well when he played over the last two seasons, he just played a limited number of games due to hip injury, and teams passed on him this year, not because he couldn't play, but because they were worried about another injury.

And people don't always just reitre because they 'dont' got game'. Look at Barry Sanders. He was in his prime still when he left. MJ retired twice when he sill had game. Hell... there were likely 30 teams in the league who would have paid him to play another year.

He's retiring because teams don't want to gamble on him due to his past hip injuries.

He was a strong defender, (around 10 per36 on his career), a solid defender, a great pick-and-roll guys/sceen setter, and he hit more shots than his missed.

That's more than could be said of a lot of Lakers this season. Randle, whose been on the block, Deng, who aint' getting minutes, Bogut, who got released, and Nance, who got traded. Those are the only ones shooting over .500.

So... if you think it is arugable that Splitter 'never' had game when he was a rotation player/starter on an NBA championship team... well... that seems pretty ignorant.

Lol I've never seen someone defend Tiago freakin' Splitter so hard. And why are you bringing up Lakers players that have nothing to do with this thread? And the comparison to Barry Sanders and MJ is laughable...

Well... you are sporting the purple and gold, so I thought I'd remind you that the guys on your team have even less game than the guy you're knocking.

As to the Sanders and MJ comments... those were jsut to highlight the fact your assumption wasn't right. But hey... it's just facts man.

Some of you trash incessantly. Splitter worked hard on his game, spurs don't spend double digits for no reason.
