Good luck with this. Glad you are finally using the Spurs. Wonder if you will deal Tony Parker & make George Hill your starter or will re-sign him.

First suggestion: In your sig it says "How did the San Antonio Spurs claimed back the NBA throne."

I think it should read more like "How the San Antonio Spurs reclaimed the NBA throne"

Stop attention seeking. Just post updates and people will start to post. I'd suggest to all to not post replies until Thierry makes it halfway through a season. I hope you're not going to post recaps and previews for all 82 games.

Yeah, my bad. :oops: Fixing the sig now, already fixed the first post pic. Clutch also PM'ed me the mistake and I remember Hyperize told me about it too.

In the sims I made before I re-signed TP. I can't see him in another jersey, but I don't know what will happen until I get to that point.

It's not attention seeking, it's just what everyone did in the previous threads :lol: I'm looking for a job and that's why I started the thread now (I know I said January), if I get a job this will go slower. No previews at all, maybe in playoffs. I was thinking in recapping all 82 but really small for simmed games.

I've heard your name pop up around associations/dynasties that go for a week or two then die and you make a new one, so.. in that case.. good luck! haha.

I'm a big fan of the big fundamental, and I read this amazing article on Manu in Slam #119. After that article I got a new appreciation for the dude and his style of play, anyway, as said, good luck. :)

If I think a post is pure spam to take the piss out on Thierry's past failures then I will be using my mod powers to keep this thread on topic. As I've said previously, the joke has played its course. Obviously if he "Thierry's" this Association then it's open game, but until such time I'm going to allow Thierry one last, fair chance at an Association/Dynasty & hope he doesn't blow it.

That is all. Please continue.

River Walk Chronicles ♦ Spurs Beat

Postby #thierry on Mon Oct 25, 2010 2:44 am

    Spurs sold to French billionaire Thierry Tirieux
    nba.com/spurs/beat | October 24th, 2010

    SAN ANTONIO -- Spurs owner Peter Holt has sold most of the shares of the team to French billionaire Thierry Tirieux, it was announced today, making Tirieux the new majority owner after the league approves the purchase. Former Spur and NBA champion David Robinson also purchased shares of the team making him a minority owner. The price of the transaction of Holt’s share of the team is undisclosed. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich commented, “the sale of Peter’s share of the team is a business decision. He is a close friend of mine, this will not change our relationship, as it goes well beyond business. I've heard Mr. Tirieux is a long-time and passionate Spurs fan and we are very happy to have him as a partner. And about David, we're gonna have to hold on him one more time (laughing). Seriously, every member of the Spurs organization is delighted to have The Admiral back on board.”

    “After heavy deliberation, I have decided to sell my shares of the organization to David and Mr. Tirieux. I will continue to work alongside the other teams in the different leagues. This was a bittersweet business decision made on behalf of my family and myself. Thierry is a huge Spurs fan, an outstanding businessman, also is a close friend with Tony (Parker), and one of the most known people in France,” said Holt. “I want to assure all the wonderful Spurs fans that my decision will in no way affect my dedication and support for the organization.” Holt is no longer related to the Spurs, but still owns the WNBA's San Antonio Silver Stars, the AHL's San Antonio Rampage, and the NBA Development League's Austin Toros.

    Tirieux, born in France in 1990, is the youngest owner in the NBA and the second European owner after New Jersey's Mikhail Prokhorov, and has been a Spurs season ticket holder for the last 5 years. “The team’s leadership and spirit of community engendered in this team is an inspiration to us all. Peter is a shining example of excellence on and off the court, and it is a privilege to have acquired his ownership position. Peter brought the excitement of the NBA back to San Antonio and gave them 4 NBA championships, and I hope that I, as the principal owner of the organization, make the team continue its growth as a success on the court, as a business success and as a valued community asset. My money is on bringing this city another couple of trophies.”

    One of the top centers of his era, David “The Admiral” Robinson was a marvel of a basketball player and a respected figure off the court. A lean, muscular, 7-1 athlete, he was fast, strong and agile. In his first six NBA seasons he won Rookie of the Year, NBA MVP and Defensive Player of the Year awards, in addition to a rebounding title, a scoring crown, six All-Star bids, three selections to the All-NBA First Team and three selections to the NBA All-Defensive First Team. Robinson's lasting legacy was also defined by his status one of the pre-eminent philanthropists in all of professional sports. On March 23, 2003, NBA Commissioner David Stern announced that future winners of the NBA Community Assist Award would receive the David Robinson Plaque, with the inscription, “Following the standard set by NBA Legend David Robinson, who improved the community piece by piece.” Robinson said today, “it is an honor for me to be part of the Spurs family once again. Can't wait to see this new team on the court and re-unite with Tim (Duncan), Manu (Ginobili) and everyone else.” Robinson will also be an assistant general manager to GM R.C. Buford.

Good team choice. Even though I'm a Rockets fan, the Spurs would be my team to support if the Rockets folded. Off-topic: I've been to the Riverwalk before, it's awesome. :D

Good Luck Thierry. Since you're a reader of my dynasty, I'll be a reader of your association, as long as you keep it going. :wink:

Sounded like a good article, if everything you write is that long though, I think that it might be a strain for people to read it, so maybe only write stuff that long for important things, like the Spurs being sold etc. etc. :)

River Walk Chronicles ♦ Spurs Beat

    Spurs acquire Corey Maggette
    nba.com/spurs/beat | October 25th, 2010

    SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio Spurs general manager R.C. Buford announced today that they have acquired swingman Corey Maggette from the Golden State Warriors in a trade that sent Richard Jefferson and Bobby Simmons from the Spurs to the Chicago Bulls, Charlie Bell and Dan Gadzuric from Milwaukee to Golden State, and Luol Deng from Chicago to Milwaukee.

    An 11-year NBA veteran, Maggette averaged 19.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 70 games for Golden State last season. He ranked 17th in the NBA in scoring average and 19th in field goal percentage (.516), while holding the distinction of owning the league’s highest scoring average for a player who logged fewer than 30.0 minutes per game (29.7 mpg). Maggette was one of seven NBA players to average at least 19.0 points and shoot at least 50 percent from the field, and one of five NBA players to average double figures in scoring, shoot 50 percent from the field and 80 percent from the free throw line. His 7.9 free throw attempts per game ranked 7th in the NBA last season. “Corey has been a consistent scorer throughout his career,” said Buford. “He shoots a solid percentage from the field and has shown the ability to get to the free throw line. We’re looking forward to having him in a Spurs uniform and we wish Richard and Bobby the best of luck in Chicago.” Maggette will wear #5, previously worn by Curtis Jerrells, who was traded a couple of days ago to New Orleans.

Manu's gonna burn a lot of defenses this season.

Good Luck Thierry. Since you're a reader of my dynasty, I'll be a reader of your association, as long as you keep it going. :wink:

Thanks man. Oh, I wish I could see the Riverwalk sometime in my life. :D

I jinxed myself saying I want to go a couple of years, so I won't say anything.

Hehe, relax, only for that article, it was a paragraph from each point of view (Popovich, Holt, Tirieux and Robinson). Small pieces coming from now on, like the one I just posted. :wink:

Comments on the deal? Got into the Warriors-Bucks deal and worked from there. I'm really happy with my lineup now and I have to say, no more deals until February at least. Also edited the index with the sections. :)

Good for Chicago and Spurs but I'm sure the Bulls can acquire a better player than Jefferson.

I like the Bucks' lineup.

I was hoping Jefferson could get a shot to prove he can be a part of the team but Maggette is not a bad acquisition. (Y)

River Walk Chronicles ♦ Thierry's Morning Coffee

Postby #thierry on Mon Oct 25, 2010 1:48 pm

    2010/11 Spurs Season Preview
    nba.com/spurs/morningcoffee | October 26th, 2010

    Image
    SAN ANTONIO -- Welcome to my "Morning Coffee" blog, Spurs fans. This is my first analysis of the Spurs and I know it's a long read. After 2 days of being around the team facilities and chatting with every person in the building, I've come across some interesting tidbits to discuss.

    At precisely the time when much of the world thought he must have been drifting apart from reality, Richard Jefferson was, in fact, sailing above the clouds after his agent officially announced that he was opting out of the last year of his contract and giving up $15 million. Jefferson got a new four-year deal worth $33.8 million, and he believed the next leg of the journey would be smoother. But only 24 hours after Peter Holt sold me the team, Jefferson found himself being traded to Chicago along Bobby Simmons, after a 2-hour meeting I had with my friend & general manager R.C. Buford. A year ago, Jefferson had arrived in Gregg Popovich's squad as the centerpiece of a reconstruction project that was supposed to send the Spurs back into the upper echelon of the West, and once more jetting into championship contention. But instead it turned into a disappointing, turbulent flight that kept the seat belt signs lit for almost the entire year and I didn't want to take that risk again.

    Enter Corey Maggette. From the trade press release: “Maggette averaged 19.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 70 games for Golden State last season (...) Ranked 17th in the NBA in scoring average and 19th in field goal percentage (.516), while holding the distinction of owning the league’s highest scoring average for a player who logged fewer than 30.0 minutes per game (29.7) (...) One of seven NBA players to average at least 19.0 points and shoot at least 50 percent from the field (...) One of five NBA players to average double figures in scoring, shoot 50 percent from the field and 80 percent from the free throw line (...) Ranked 7th in the NBA last season in free throw attempts per game (7.9).” I was impressed. As most Spurs fans have already pointed out to me in this past few days, the lack of accurate outside shooting was evident in last year’s playoff sweep to Phoenix. We have made moves to address this need, drafting James Anderson and a hired gun such as Gary Neal; Maggette also holds a .321% career 3PT%, but still, color me cautious. R.C., David "The Admiral" Robinson and me won't hesitate to shake the roster a little.

    My friend Tony Parker is playing for a contract: Manu Ginobili was masterful in his contract year last term, and we're gonna need the same magic from Tony to have a chance at another ring. As the season begins, our own Big 3 of TP, Manu and Tim Duncan are all physically in the best shape of the past three or four seasons; none of them are recovering from offseason surgery; and none of them is worn out or beaten up from having played in the World Championships. And it will help that Brazilian rookie Tiago Splitter, a first-round pick in 2007, is finally making his NBA debut; if you ask me, the most anticipated move of our offseason was his addition and I'm really glad he's on board. Tiago finished his season in the ACB by winning the title and MVP award. He got married and we interrupted his honeymoon, even.

    Checklist: bigger strengths. Our biggest point of pride, quite possibly the one thing we will do better than anything else: rebounding. Mr. Fundamental and Antonio McDyess have been among the league leaders in rebound rate almost every single year they’ve been in the NBA. This year we’ve got another young wing player that rebounds the ball very well for his position in the 20th pick overall Anderson. If I were Pop, I would replace Matt Bonner's last season minutes with a slightly better rebounder in Splitter. Then, the guy who had the highest rebound rate of any rotation player in the league last year and earned himself a starting spot this season, DeJuan Blair, who's quicker, stronger, and more athletic than he’s ever been. Quote me after the season: he’s going to be an absolute monster on the boards.

    And our other strong point: defense at the rim. A top 5 team in this category last year. With Tiago and an improving Blair aboard, the interior defense isn’t getting any weaker. The improvements that Splitter and DeJuan bring to protect the paint should be more than enough to cover for any mistake from Timmy or McDyess. The Spurs defend well where it really matters the most: at the rim and around the arc - although the 3pt defense needs some improvement to get back to where it was during the seasons that ended with a trophy.

    While there are a few other weaknesses for this team (as I said, outside shooting, maybe defense outside the paint), I must repeat something that’s irritated Spurs fans the past years -- the age issue. In my opinion, this is one of the last hurrahs for this historic group. Let’s face it: while the roster average age is relatively young compared to the rest of the league, this concern has been mostly directed to our three key championship cogs - especially Duncan. The team will live and die with its superstars; it’s probably that easy. But I'm certain we will continue to find a way to stay relevant, even if the core ages. If our Big Three aren’t playing at a championship-caliber level come May-June, unless George Hill or DeJuan suddenly make a quantum leap in terms of production to compensate or Maggette transforms into some sort of Fantastic Four, it’s going to be a tough, tough road. But hey, every new season, and now more than ever, with me taking the reign, I remain hopeful that the Spurs have a shot -- it’s been that way for more than a decade, right?

Thanks guys. Yep, really interesting team in Milwaukee. Never liked Jefferson, I hated him more when Bowen and Oberto were traded to get him. :( Corey's one of my favs.

Oh yeah, didn't come up to my mind at the moment. He's on board.

Thanks man. I'd say is my forte, association titles (lol) and articles... I know they are a little long, but there were some things I didn't want to leave off the text. And yes, I made all the logos (you can check the image location and change the team name to see them). :wink:

Sorry to tell this but I did not even finish reading the blog, but I did try. :P I know its a preview of the team but it can be a little shorter than that. We all know what Mcdyess,Manu,Duncan,Parker,Blair and Hill can do and we know what to expect from them. For me is much better if you only focus on the new acquisitions like Splitter, Anderson and Maggette.
