To borrow from specialsauce, I’d prefer losing by 30 than winning with Tony Parker contributing. :P
What makes you hate him? That he killed us so many times, or something else? Just curious.
Don’t most Suns fans hate him? I have him right up there with most of the other Spurs—Bowen, H***y (although that predates his Spurs days), Ginobili. Duncan I did respect but even having him come here at the end of his career would have been awkward.

Lol I would agree with Jeremy. I don't ever want anything to do with Manu, Tony, Tim, Bruce, or H***y

I think Bruce was a dirty player, and H***y was a straight up punk bitch. But I have nothing but respect for how great the other 3 were. I wish we had that level of competitiveness on this team at more than just back up center.

It's probably the way he treated Eva Longoria.

Parker was the spur I was the most ok with. I didn’t really have issues with Duncan other than he was just boring. Manu was an annoying flopper, but wasn’t dirty. Bowen and H***y are possibly my two least favorite basketball players of all time.

I would've taken TP here instead of Ariza. Fine with Parker.

Hell we signed M***o E**e and he ended up starting 67 games for us.

Karl Malone? Danny Fortson? Jerrod Mustaf? Kermit Washington?

Just kidding, Kermit. Don’t punch me.
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

I was either not born or too young for most of those guys. Danny Fortson was a punk...did he injure zarko? I also think he once tried the throw a chair into the stands but his teammate luckily stopped him.

I was happy we signed Elie. He was one of those guys you HATE on the other team, and love them on your team. Like Ainge.

I will never forget what Elie said when he left, though. Well, I actually forgot the exact words, but it was something like this: "I thought they were about winning at all costs... guess I was wrong."

F Elie. After blowing us that kiss? He should never, ever have been allowed to play for our team.

Why would you not want a guy like that on your team? You always want guys that play harder than his counterpart, and not afraid of taking big shots.

Agreed with last two... I just can't hate a basketball player if what he did to make us hate him would have been something I cheered if I were the other team. I would never have cheered for the way H***y played. Or Bowen. Dirty players.
