Bucks vs. Pelicans Preview: Half a Brow

Bucks arrive in the Big Easy as the internal Pellies cold war continues Just because a game is clearly a schedule loss doesn’t make incurring an L any easier. The Bucks found that out the hard way dropping a tough (but winnable) road game against the San Antonio Spurs. Will an off day do Milwaukee wonders and get them back into the W column? Bucks Update So, how about those Pau Gasol minutes? While the defeat in San Antonio can’t be solely blamed on the 38 year-old, he certainly, ah, looked his age at times. He’ll continue to need time to get comfortable within the team concept, but...

The Spurs welcomed Pau Gasol back with an offense designed to exploit him

The Spurs welcomed Pau Gasol back with an offense designed to exploit him

The Spurs can be pretty cold-blooded when they want. The Spurs have a reputation for taking care of their players. Little things (like reaching a buyout with Pau Gasol in time for him to sign with a contender) matter for one of the best run organizations in professional sports. Pau, by all accounts, was a consummate professional during his time in San Antonio, and if the line of players waiting to talk to him after the game is any indication, a well-respected and well-liked member of the team. The team’s affection and respect for Pau, however, did not extend to the time he...

Open Thread: A homecoming of sorts as Pau Gasol plays against the San Antonio Spurs

After rumors of trade requests and the eventual waiving, it’s all smiles between the Silver & Black and their former center. Even though it’s been only a week since Pau Gasol signed with the Milwaukee Bucks, he returned to San Antonio in a sort of homecoming. He made time at the end of the Spurs victory over his new team to hug LaMarcus Aldridge, and DeMar DeRozan while Bryn Forbes and Derrick White came across the court to show their respect. Not that Spurs fans should expect any less from the Spanish center who offered back $2.5M while being released to join a team who could offer...

Open Thread: Drew Eubanks deserves a nickname

Open Thread: Drew Eubanks deserves a nickname

. . . and maybe the 15th roster spot. First, Pau Gasol and the Spurs settled on a contract buy out. Then he went to the Milwaukee Bucks. After that, discussions started as to who would play as a back up to LaMarcus Aldridge and Jakob Poeltl in the event that one of them was injured. For two games with bigger line-ups, Pop started both Aldridge and Poeltl. And then Jakob sat out two nights ago. Enter Drew Eubanks. The 6’10” Oregon big man is on a two-way contract splitting time between San Antonio and the G-League Austin Spurs where his per game averages of 16.6 points, 7.7 rebounds, and...

The swan song of Pau Gasol

The swan song of Pau Gasol

Like Don Quixote, Pau is on a journey. When I describe Pau Gasol to non-NBA fans, I tell them that he is not a typical NBA player, but he was a perfect Spur. As a child, he wanted to be a doctor, but, tragically, ended up being 7’-0” tall and athletically gifted. He posts pictures of the books that he is reading on his Instagram, frequents the opera, and is active with the local children’s hospital. His preferred social media hashtag is, “#AlwaysLearning,” and his reputation as a consummate teammate and athlete on the basketball court has reflected the influence of his diverse...

Open Thread: There are options left to the San Antonio Spurs now that Pau Gasol is packed for Milwaukee

What to do with the final roster spot will be the focus on today’s discussion. Pau Gasol has done the Spurs a solid by leaving $2.5M in the Spurs account while signing on with the Milwaukee Bucks. It’s not a lot to play with, but enough to pull in a back up for the remainder of the season. The Gasol-sized hole left in the line-up forces PATFO to have a plan in the case of emergency. LaMarcus Aldridge has been the starting center with Jakob Poeltl backing him since Pau’s injury left more minutes for the Austrian big man. But over the last two games against the Detroit Pistons and the...

Pau Gasol gave $2.5 million back to the Spurs in buyout

He’s helping lowering the Spurs cap hit next season. More information is coming out about the Spurs buyout agreement with Pau Gasol, who has signed with the league-leading Milwaukee Bucks. Under normal circumstances, the Spurs would owe him the remainder of this season’s salary plus the $6.7 million he is guaranteed next season, which would remain on their books unless they are able to trade those rights away. However, Shams Charania of The Athletic is saying Gasol has given $2.5 million back to the Spurs in his buyout agreement to help them with cap space next season, meaning they...
