Under Greg Popovich, he would be given a smaller but more specific role (one that none of his past teams have been able to clearly define) and his value would skyrocket. We need him as a 4, but I'm interested in what role he would have on a Popovich team.
I saw this...
You gotta understand the proper context for this picture though...
So I've got Tyrus' back there.
I totally agree with you, sometimes when I watch Bobcats games I feel as if Dunlap's coaching a bunch of 8 year olds.
As if Dunlap is giving them the "have fun out there" speech. I know he doesn't say that, but it sure feels that way.
The last couple of games I keep seeing Tyrus setting (halfhearted) screens who end up with Tyrus getting the ball at the 3-point line.
That sort of things won't happen with Pop. If Tyrus goes to the Spurs he'll be the second big man coming of the bench (behind Splitter).
He'll most likely what he's doing now except he won't attempt that many elbow jumpers.
Tyrus, as one of the last people who still has some respect for you, I want to say: I'm going to miss you!
You probably weren't the best player, but you were the heart and the soul of this team!
You were exciting to watch with all your dunks, you showed hustle sometimes and almost everybody thought you were a bit of a failure.
That makes you the complete embodiment of the Charlotte Bobcats! And I want to thank you for all of that!
I think we should close this thread now.
I hate it he didn't work out. I just don't understand how he got so skinny, so puzzling. I sincerely hope he gets another shot with another team.
Didn't like him on this team, but he was a hard worker and his injuries just fucked him up for us. Sucks what we had to give up for him, but he is a talented, hard-working guy. Hope he goes to a team that can use him to the best of his abilities, and I hope he salvages a decent career. I can still see him as a solid role player.
Good luck TT. Not your biggest fan, but it is what it is.
EDIT: Just don't drop 30 points on us with your new team or I'll fucking hate your guts.
