Spurs links: Should the Spurs erect statues outside of the AT&T Center?

Blog brother Scott Bailey of the San Antonio Business Journal makes an interesting point about the Spurs that is topical considering the controversy of Kareem Abdul-Jabban and his long-promised statue at the Staples Center.

Bailey proposes , adding that his picks would be for monuments immortalizing George Gervin, David Robinson and Tim Duncan.

I’m curious is Spurs Nation believes if others would merit inclusion along with Bailey’s three no-brainers?

Would Gregg Popovich deserve a statue because of his direction of four championship teams?

How about Sean Elliott or James Silas?

This is an even bigger honor than having your roster number retired. 

And it would add something to the franchise and its storied history to have its pivotal figures cast in stone outside their home arena.

It’s a good idea, don’t you think?
