|2007 NBA Mock Draft
Overall Pick: 10
San Antonio Spurs
Chosen by: Pounding the Rock
PG, Texas A&M, Sr.
Matt from Pounding the Rock
took time out from celebrating the Spurs fourth NBA championship
to make a trade and take Acie Law with tenth pick. Armed with special dispensation for championship celebration side effects, Matt promises to deliver his trade and pick rationale in a few hours.UPDATE:
Here is Matt's comments on the tenth pick.
The Spurs are the oldest team in the league and if they want to repeat they are going to need to add some youth. Their most glaring weakness all season was backup point guard. Pop lost all confidence in Beno Udrih and was forced to play Jacque Vaughn who, despite his grit, determination and hustle, isn't a quality backup point. Acie Law is a local boy who has shown the ability to step up in big games and lead his team, and given the fact he completed is four years in school there's a chance Pop might actually play him. He can push the ball and create his own shot, so the Spurs shouldn't have to play a different style of offense when Parker is on the bench.
Plus I went to Texas A&M, so getting Acie Law, even if only in the fictional sense, was a huge priority.
