I wonder what Spurs fans would have to say about this. They've gone a long long long time being kind of a quiet team that handled all the fundamentals. They weren't a team with swagger, as metrocard aptly states. I'm just not sure he's the type of player Popovich would want. I can't remember the Spurs ever really having a player who off-the-court is like Marbury.
My sense is Steph just wouldn't like San Antonio as a city. I don't know Steph personally but San Antonio is a tiny tiny market. He likes to be out there in the open and in the media a lot of times. He's a NY guy and while he's been to Phoenix and Minnesota I don't think they'd compare to the small town feel he'd likely get in San Antonio. I actually think of the 3 listed in the article Miami is the city Steph would probably like the best, plus I think he'd like playing there (except #3 is already taken...). That Miami team would be a fun team to watch as it'd be Steph-Wade-Matrix. I don't know how Steph and Matrix got a long in Phoenix, but I assume it wasn't all that badly.
I definitely do NOT think Steph would EVER start over a healthy Tony Parker-Longoria, though you could be right Parker-Longoria could could be injury prone.
