The San Antonio Spurs controlled most of the series leading to another NBA Championship, after last night’s series win. The series lasted only five games, in which the whole worlds saw the dominance that is the San Antonio Spurs. Many Rockets fans thought they had a chance to defeat the Spurs in the playoffs, after finishing 4-0 against them in the regular season, but it would have been tough. Would they have won? Maybe, but it would have been a hell of a series nonetheless. Instead, Spurs fans enjoy while the Rockets fans wait for their turn. Check out the rest of the links for more in Houston sports!
Obviously it is beneficial to have a stable veteran presence to rely on from time to time. But Williams is far from fulfilling that role. The biggest issue in designating him for assignment is likely his contract. With a $2.1 million beginning salary, there is likely a sustainable portion left for the Astros to cover. Honestly I would rather them pay for him to be off the team and letting a young guy get some experience.

The Spurs were not built that way. They might be the anomaly among championship teams, but in the era of “The Decision,” “the Dwightmare” and the “Melo-drama,” it seemed worth noting that a team one win shy of the championship has one player acquired with a lottery pick.

“T.J. (Yates) and Case (Keenum) … they’ve also done a good job,” O’Brien said. “Savage is a rookie. He’s a little bit behind. But you can see he’s got some tools. He can throw the football and he works extremely hard.”
