--The player the Spurs hope to lure to San Antonio next season, 2007 draft pick Tiago Splitter, was named the MVP of ACB for the 2009-10 season. Splitter averaged 21.2 points. Selected 28th overall, the 7-footer has dominated in Europe, and there are rumors that Splitter's agent is already talking with Spurs management.
--With Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili locked into contracts and the Spurs expected to keep Tony Parker, the club's three returning leading scorers next season would total 95 years old. San Antonio station KENS 5 did the legwork on this interesting stat: Since 1990, only one team has won the title with its three top scorers that old. The team? The 1997-98 Bulls with Michael Jordan, Toni Kukoc and Scottie Pippen were a combined 95 years old.
QUOTE TO NOTE
"We have so many resources to build a team. As an organization, we live within our realities." -- Spurs general manager R.C. Buford.
