With Manu out too now, Tiago Splitter (Brazil) & Boris Diaw (France) will be the only two Spurs players in the WC next month.
2014-15 Spurs roster: Parker, Duncan, Splitter, Manu, Boris, Green, Mills, Kawhi, Marco, Joseph, Ayres, Bonner, Anderson, Daye, open spot.
Tiago sent this 20 minutes before the match. The Curse of Nando is real. http://t.co/vO3BZ1WTlP
Someone check on Tiago http://t.co/kmGwvzPIgj
Well. Sorry Tiago...
2014-15 Spurs: Parker: $12.5M Duncan: $10.4M Tiago: $9.3M Boris: ~$8M Manu: $7M Green: $4M Patty: ~$4M Marco: $2.9M Kawhi: $2.9M CoJo: $2M
The benefit of a winning culture: Re-signing Tiago, Boris, Manu, Green and Patty to an (approximately) $32 million next year.
Boris' new deal will make him the fourth-highest paid Spur, behind Parker, Duncan and Splitter.
Basically, for those first 2 years, Boris is making Tiago Splitter money. Which makes sense since they provide value by matchups.
Kings are paying Gay, Cousins, Collison and Williams $44.6 million next year. Spurs paying Parker, Duncan, Splitter, Manu and Kawhi $41.9M.
In the Finals, Rashard Lewis is outscoring Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw.
Tiago Splitter needed that dunk. Has to be more confident and assertive offensively.
Not many big man duos as unathletic as Duncan-Splitter.
