The Spurs Have a New Sniper in Town

And his name, is Roger Mason Jr: “Mason’s latest star turn as Big Shot Rog came Sunday in Boston, when his leaning, off-balance 3-pointer with 20.4 seconds left provided the go-ahead points in the Spurs’ upset of the defending champion Celtics. ‘I live for those moments,’ Mason said afterward. ‘I look forward to end-of-the-game situations.’”

    Mason is clutch as hell.

    It’s a big difference doing it in a playoff game. We’ll see.

    Eboy’s right, but I have every confidence in the man. The Spurs tend to shoot pretty well with the game on the line. That said, “Big Shot Rog” doesn’t do it for me. “The Masonic Rog”? He needs a better nickname.

    wizards are retards for giving him up.

  • niQ

    this is what you call it when preparation meets oppurtunity.

  • Danny

    maybe during these playoff games Roger Mason will live up to his “big shot rog” name and hip check Steve Nash….

  • ciroqobama

    Steve Nash has to make the playoffs first

    And mark my words, if Amare goes, they have no chance.

    spurs will reign again. 5 in 10!

  • Nate James

    steve will leave to a differnt team and win the championship.

    In completely unrelated news this made me laugh:

    “The Milk Mustache campaign is taking the allegations against Chris Brown very seriously,” the Washington, D.C.-based trade group said in a statement. “We are very proud and protective of the image of the Milk Mustache campaign and the responsible message it sends to teens.”

    People need to know about this.

    Sprayin mason is a good nick name…lol

    Mason is gangsta, he has no conscience and I don’t think he’ll falter in clutch situations (the way “Bones” Barry did constantly), plus I like his hair.

  • BostonBaller

    @Collins, how would the wizards know he would hit clutch game winners when they were never that close at the end? Plus if Arenas was there Mason wouldn’t see the ball. lol. He is hitting them now but we have to wait and see if he does it in the playoffs and how consistantly he does it in the playoffs. Do not anoint him the heir to Big Shot Rob just yet.

    loved the exchange of Danny and ciroqobama.
    and i still can’t believe celtics choked like that at the end of sunday’s game. 2 terrible turnovers that caused them 6 points. both celtics and posey must feel like they are idiots for parting ways.

  • donlaker

    i like how teams dont check for him on the court
    he will get a long term contract,and the spurs will battle the lakers for the west

    Posey got 2 rings and an extra million a year in the Big Easy, don’t think he’s sweating life too much.

  • Zabba

    Spurs will win it this year, this to be their last championship from the Duncan era, coming full circle.

    I thought this was going to be about Matt Bonner.

  • wilz

    ya…Matt Bonner is the new sniper…we new about Mason for a while now..

  • ninjAdmin

    .. he looks like a Boondocks kid.

    he can shoot in the clutch for sure.
