[ My Take On Match-Ups ]Point Guard: Tony Parker vs Darren CollisonParker didn’t do much during the summer, which is a good thing for us and the team.  He is healthy and ready to dominate others that stand in his way.  Collison whom is a speedster himself still is no match for TP.  EDGE: Spurs

Shooting Guard: Manu Ginobili vs Mike DunleavySeriously. I don’t have to even go in depth on what Manu will do to Dunleavy tonight! EDGE: Spurs

Small Forward: Richard Jefferson vs Danny GrangerWe were all excited last season to hear that we were getting Jefferson, we all know how that ended up, sorry if you are reflecting back on that horrible season that Jefferson had.  Hoping this season will be different.  Granger is a scorer, he will get his.  EDGE: Pacers

Power Forward: DeJuan Blair vs Josh McRobertsI am a huge Blair fan. I know I am not the only one.  His sense for the ball is amazing and his all out play is what we as Spurs fans want to see night in and night out.  Uhhh, McRoberts, don’t try you will get hurt. EDGE: Spurs

Center: Tim Duncan vs Roy HibbertThe Big Fundamental will show the kid how it is done. EDGE: Spurs

Bench:We will see if our guys have the fire power.  George Hill will be the go to off the bench. 


Drop in some of your knowledge.
