Their Roster is garbage. Pop is calling timeouts left and right trying to do something.. This clearly isn't an effort thing. I was just mocking Knicks players and media for thinking they can do better in games if they just try more. :lol:

Yes still never seen an NBA coach do anything without lots of talent, without Aldridge and Kawhi they're not doing much.

Brandon Jennings returns to the NBA and puts up a stat line of 16/8/12. Then you realize the Memphis Grizzlies have now lost 18 straight games.

I dont think those highlights are that special.

Spurs dont have any good defensive big men.
Gasol is too old and slow. Capela's dunk isnt a great p&r play but he's much more athletic than Gasol.
Spurs big men cant alter any shot around the rim. Gasol has the length but he's to slow and playing with low energy. LMA, Lauvergne are just bad defender and they were never capable to defend the rim.
I'm surprised at Spurs roster choices.
I thought Pop adapted modern starting fives earlier than most. He used B.Diaw at 4 which created so much spacing and playmaking for them. Now seeing them playing with 2 slow big men doesnt make sense.
And Pop always had some rim protectors. Either Duncan or Splitter.
Even if Kawhi plays all time great defense his effect wont be half of R.Gobert like rim protectors.

In todays game its impossible to defend perimeter without a good rim protector inside.
I respect Cp3 but I dont think he's at his top form. And I always doubt his game in playoffs.
It will be more about Harden. He's playing like all time great iso player right now. If he keeps up gordon, capela, ariza, cp3, anderson would help him. But it'll take Harden to play great to get out of West.

If any team deserves it, it’s the best run franchise for the last 20 years.

I hope Silver rewards them

I like the idea of rewarding a team that makes the playoffs consistently.

The irony of the night the Spurs got Tim Duncan, the Celtics were tanking in hopes of getting him. What a reversal of fortune after David Robinson had to endure Dennis Rodman's antics.

Would it be crazy for Lebron to sign with the Trailblazers, and have his version of Kyrie in Damian Lillard?

Dame is better. Plus Portland is his team and they don't need another Wing they've needed a LEGIT Post presence Big Man for the last Decade.

Obviously was a good move, but it happened so fast and the ball blended in with the paint kinda.
