Talking Roger Mason: The Replacement

Quote:
The Replacement
Dusty Garza, SpursReport
Wednesday, November 19, 2008

By the time Roger Mason was finally convinced to leave his hometown Wizards and sign a two year deal worth roughly $7.5 million with the Spurs, no one knew he would be asked to replace Manu Ginobili in San Antonio.

Players in this league are asked to fill in for injured All-Stars all the time. That they can actually step up, not just step in, is what's uncommon.

Certainly not by choice, Tim Duncan has started his campaign for league MVP early this year. Luckily, he's had Micheal Finley and Roger Mason there to help him carry San Antonio's heavy, injury-burdened load. Their efforts finally find the Spurs playing .500 level basketball.

Mason's performances, including the game winning shot against the Clippers in Los Angeles, have given Gregg Popovich hope that his team will be anything but .500 very soon.

"I think we're going to be a very deep basketball team once we get everybody back and healthy," says Popovich.

He's been telling everyone since before the season started that Roger Mason was special. Finally, the league is starting to see what Popovich and the rest of the Spurs have been seeing during practice for weeks.
