What's up with all the hate on the Cowboys. drafting Elliott. Elliott will be taking the Cowboys to the Super Bowl. in 2017. Jerry Jones will be laughing all the way to the bank. Romo finally gets a Ring. guaranteed.
I find it funny that if he hates your favorite teams picks than Walt hates your team. I used to think the same way when he would bash on the Jags for every little thing, but now he is only saying good things about them. Walt does not dislike one team or another he dislikes moves and action. This is one persons opinion and if you don't like it then that sucks. He still has a right to it and will keep posting regardless. *Plus as a bonus if you use facts and reason Walt will look at it from an unbiased angle and see it from your point of view. He did it when I brought up the Jags free agent grade. He even changed it to the more appropriate grade.
59. Marcus Denmon, G, Missouri: C Grade
I actually mocked this one correctly, which believe it or not, is really difficult to get a second-round pick right. This just seems like a Spurs-type pick since Denom plays hard, can contribute in a variety of ways, and could earn a spot on the roster.

2011-12 Season Summary:
I keep waiting for the San Antonio Spurs to fall off the NBA map a bit. After getting bounced from the opening round by the Grizzlies last summer, I figured this might be the year that age catches up to the Spurs.
Instead, the team was right there in the end, finishing with the best record in the league, winning 20-straight games including a pair of playoff sweeps, and knocking on the door of another trip to the NBA Finals. Head coach Gregg Popovich and general manager R.C. Buford deserve a ton of credit for meshing a group of youngsters with their solid stable of veterans.

NBA Offseason Needs:
1. Re-sign Duncan:
Despite all the miles on the 36-year old legs, Tim Duncan proved he is still a valuable asset due to his ability and maybe more importantly, his leadership. I would be shocked if he and the Spurs cannot agree on some sort of reasonable contract to keep the Big Fundamental in San Antonio. I doubt he makes anything close to the $21.3 million he raked in this past season, but this is one marriage that should never end.
2. More Size:
Even if Duncan is re-signed, the Spurs still need to add another post player. Boris Diaw proved to be a terrific mid-season pick-up, and I wouldn't be surprised if San Antonio tried to re-sign him at an affordable rate. If not, the Spurs need one more big body just in case Duncan begins to wear down a bit.
