Gooden will be an added scoring option on the spurs 2nd team. The only problem i see is his defense... being in the west he will have to guard most of the time good bigs like David West, Pau Gasol, Shaq( if they will let him, )or Amare if he comes back, Dirk etc. But he can definitely help the Spurs

I can't see Gooden not playing with the 1st team more often than not, especially at the end of games. He has way too much talent not to. I haven't watched the Spurs much this year but i'm highly doubting Gooden is going to only run with the 2nd team ...or be just a off the bench scoring option

Like i said, when you can find a Bull's fan to start *****ing about anything Gooden does then i'll take what you Cav's fans say more seriously

And this idea that playing with Lebron is more the norm than playing for the Bulls is just some retarded ****. Playing with any chucker is not a 'normal' team. I don't even get how you Cav's fans logic that

Last but not least, defense a lot of times by posters here in particular is very over-emphasized. Especially when y'all are knit-picky to a fault. Yep, there were tons of Porter/Avery supporters here, but i'm sure they won't call themselves out

i'm not a cavs fan, i don't want them to win the title. i want them to completely fall apart. i similarly hate the bulls but they suck. i dont want SA to win because they seem to win all the time, and i SURE as hell am not a porter / avery supporter. Nor do i think you need to preach defense to a fault to win.

and dude, Of course playing for the Cavs was more important than the bulls this year, they had real playoff games - thats where he was killing them and ultimately they lost faith in him. Playing for the Spurs in the playoffs is a hell of a lot more imporant than the bulls too. Are you insane?

i think Gooden can help, just not defensively because his defense is poor. you can keep saying it doesn't but its just not true. he's renowned for mental lapses and defensive lapses, you are basically saying that everyone (media, former teammates, every single person on this board besides you) is seeing things that dont exist.

Gooden will be a good person to come off the bench for the Spurs.

Bonner initially but not Thomas and after a few games neither Bonner as well.

Gooden > Bonner

Gooden is the perfect fourth option for the Spurs, behind Duncan, Parker and Ginobelli.

This move provides the Spurs with the big they have lacked since Mohammed left a few years ago.

The Spurs should win the championship again this year, over the Hawks in 6.
