        Derrick white should not be on team usa, the hype is bigger than his skill.

            As a Spurs fan I hate the strategy. Luck had something to do with it. Celtics thought they were getting Duncan, lol. Tony and Manu ended up playing so well and that contributed to such a long run of playoff appearances. But outside those guys it was pretty much plug and play with guys who bought in. The punishment, lol, of such success is that you’re stuck in limbo. We may have to miss a playoffs or 2 to get the talent level back up to compete. Don’t think Pop will be around long enough for that though....

                            Surely Pop has an eye for talent, turns draft underdogs and unknowns to CHAMPIONS.

                                              The Kawhi Leonard debacle has precipitated the decline of the Spurs. Years from now it will be seen as the incident that set it all off.

                                                Where's the decline? He hid in 2017, the Spurs still made the playoffs. He left the following year and they still made the playoffs. The Spurs constructed a more youthful team in 2019 and I'd bet they'd still make the playoffs. So what's changed again? They may not win a chip anytime soon but they're rebuilding without compromising their goal of making it to the playoffs because they know that's the path to the chip. They're patient because they have the right culture and system to do so. They'll never experience decline becoz of that. But hey, keep counting them out.😅

                                              Spurs suck these days. Here's the entire current roster and how much ppg they each average. Going by age from oldest to youngest players:
                                              - Aldridge, LaMarcus: 21 ppg (good)
                                              - Belinelli, Marco: 10 ppg
                                              - Carroll, DeMarre: 11 ppg
                                              - DeRozan, DeMar: 21 ppg (good)
                                              - Eubanks, Drew: 2 ppg
                                              - Forbes, Bryn: 11 ppg
                                              - Gay, Rudy: 13 ppg
                                              - Johnson, Keldon: n/a
                                              - Lyles, Trey: 8 ppg
                                              - Metu, Chimezie: 1 ppg
                                              - Mills, Patty: 10 ppg
                                              - Murray, Dejounte 8 ppg
                                              - Pöltl, Jakob: 5 ppg
                                              - Šamanić, Luka: n/a
                                              - Walker, Lonnie: 2 ppg
                                              - Weatherspoon, Quinndary: n/a
                                              - White, Derrick: 10 ppg

                                              now you see why they loss in rd 1 of the playoffs. Everybody suck except for Aldridge & DeRozan.

                                                The Spurs have to offer Tony a ten day contract so that he can retire a Spurs, I've already forgotten last season. It never happened.

                                                      The Spurs is now on a rebuilding mode & I do believe it'll be quick & get another championship for as long as Coach Pop will stay on the franchise. So good luck for the newest Spurs on the block like White, Derozan, Gay, & Aldridge. 😉

I had been a HUGE Spurs fan (since they became a part of the NBA) until he started playing social justice warrior. You can save your "Trumptard supporter" nonsense, as it's not about the "who" it's about the "what". Politics are shoved down our throats 24/7/365 and I could care less who it is about. I tuned into the NBA (and the NFL) to see sports and forget about politics. People like Popovich, Kerr, James, etc. ruined the NBA and of course Kaepernick, Long, etc. the NFL. There needs to be a division between the two. If these guys want to discuss politics, they can do it on their own time. I pay way too much to watch what used to be outstanding basketball and football to hear someone ranting about who they do and don't like politically.

                                                                            That being said, the Spurs will be a "nowhere" team again in another year or two. I have said for the last two seasons that no FA's of note see SA as a destination club, and this year, again, proved it. Popovich should have retired and even though they had a decent season last year, the dearth of FA's and the lack of reasons for quality FA's to go to SA will be the end for them.

                                                                            • Jaz
