Popovich will end up killing him within a week. Gooden's a black hole and the WORST on defense. I don't see him getting much playing time. You have no idea how bad he is until he starts playing for your team.

I don't think he'll have that much of an impact with that team. And he just doesn't look right in a spurs uniform

He might be useful for 5-8 mins in the playoffs

Gooden's going to provide a good post option, and everytime I've seen him play, he seems to have a nose for the ball when it comes to offensive rebounds, and thats obviously a positive.

Will Gooden start, or come off the bench.

IMO i'd make him come off the bench since you've already had so much success without him.

He IS a good rebounder I will give him that.

He's certainly not a bad pickup, and on offense his rebounding and energy will be good. He's deceptive though, you'll think "hey he's not that bad on defense at all" the first few weeks unless you have a big game and he has a real matchup, then you'll watch him move IN SLOW MOTION to cover his guy as they do spectacular dunks as he isn't even in the picture. I look forward to the first sideway glance from Duncan, like WTF - can you please cover your man?

And when that happens, you pull him. So not a bad pickup at all.

Nice pickup for the Spurs, he should be able to fill the 4 spot off the bench nicely and give less minutes to Thomas/Bonner

He'll look great playing next to Duncan. Timmy is making Bonner look like Dirk Nowitzki and Roger Mason look like Reggie Miller so just imagine what he can do for Gooden who actually has talent.
