3 Things San Antonio's Tiago Splitter Must Improve On

The San Antonio Spurs have opened their offseason with a bit of a bang, signing their starting center to a hefty contract. Splitter now has 9 million (yearly) reasons to improve on his game, and there is plenty room for improvement.

Splitter did make solid strides this season though and proved to be a potent starter for the Spurs. He proved himself to be one of the best centers the team has had in about a decade, and gave the team the size in the middle they desperately needed.

Splitter for the regular season averaged about 11 ppg and 6 rebounds. Unfortunately he couldn’t translate his game or his numbers to the post season; he only averaged 6 ppg and 3 rebounds.

Now with his boost in pay comes a legitimate demand for considerably more production. So what are the top three things Splitter needs to improve on as soon as possible?
