Well, f#@%.

Wow — between picking up Nick Van Exel earlier in the week and luring Michael Finley today, my San Antonio Spurs are going to look a hell of a lot different this coming season! (ESPN has more on both acquisitions, including the piece of info that the Heat didn’t bid for Van Exel because they were interested in saving their money for Finley. Doesn’t seem to have worked out all that well for them, did that?) We’ll see if Van Exel’s knee holds out through 82-plus games, and how well Finley is able to work into the rotation with Obie Manu Ginobli and Bruce Bowen, but there’s definitely potential for a fantastic team.

(My favorite quote about Finley’s move comes from Mark Cuban, the owner of Finley’s old team and competitor of the Spurs, the Dallas Mavericks: “I wish Mike all the best off the court. As always, I hope the Spurs lose 82 games.” Classy.)

Oh, THANK GOD! Go Spurs!
