    I think (or at least I hope) you are misquoting them. I think they were saying they'd like to give Evan Turner a bigger roll.

    Explain to them the importance of building team rapport and give them practice compliments like:

    "ET, you know, for a dude with such a FUGLY shot and horrendously bloated contract, you look M-AHHH-VELOUS!"

    I'm really fine with Turner, except for when he's in the game.

    $17M hurrying the team by being in the game is even worse.

    Maybe they want to expand his role on the off chance he raises his stock? :dunno:

    That could be a real possibility. If you park ET on the bench it doesn't look good for anyone. If you experiment by surrounding him with better shooters, it will either work and you keep him or maybe you raise his value enough to get some interest. Worst case is it doesn't work at all and then you are back to where you started.

    If Turner was involved in a trade for Butler, I might just offer to kiss Olshey, and I'm not gay!

    I could see ET being a good spur. They make average guys look really good. He could be their new Boris Diaw. Pop loves those guys who kind of just do a little of everything. I bet Turner would play much better there. Maybe we can trade him for Matt Bonner.

    Ha! Evan Turner does "a little of everything"? 8 pts 3.2 trb 2.2 ast. I think you meant he does very little.

    Anyone want to calculate his PER per $10 million in salary?

    Yes, that's exactly why I can dream about it coming true.

    I tried, but it was really scary. So, I gave up.

    Yes. He is one of those guys who doesn’t do anything great but kind of just does a little bit of everything and is a smart player. Pop likes those dudes.

    I used to think this too. I was cautiously optimistic when we signed ET. The ole Swiss Army Knife thing. But his deficiencies, in my opinion, in this system, far outweigh anything positive he offers. He kills my soul without hyperbole, actually kills it.

    Don’t get me wrong I cannot stand him and he’s my least favorite Blazers not named Meyers. But the Spurs have a way with average players.
