Knowing that there is a high chance of Duncan retiring this year, and potentially Ginobili as well, what do you think the odds are of Love making his way to San Antonio, either this year by trade or next year by FA? How do you think it would impact their team?
I think Magic fans often connect with the Spurs because it is fun for us to believe in the ideal of a small-market team building greatness through drafting high-character unselfish guys who buy into a smart team system. Add to that the lack of ego on their team, and the likely related ability to keep their star players instead of see them run off to larger markets, and it gives us something more to root for.
Now, if they could add to that the ability to attract an all-star free agent as a small market team in the modern era, than you see where I'm going with this. Perhaps it's just me, but that's truly a model worth emulating, and them proving success with such a model can give us hope.
So, Love to the Spurs? Any chance?
