If Richardson got it for going 2-1 and 22ppg, then the NBA intends on making the award as comical as possible.

its ok to give the award to the same person multiple tikmes isnt it?

Seems to me that the Spurs got a good return for a player who turned out to be a rental and was leaving San Antonio the following year anyway.

In the Spurs win over the Raptors last night Jakob Poeltl played fundamentally solid basketball; 10 rebounds, 2 blocks, +1, in 20 minutes. He'll never be flashy, but he will play strong basketball for a decade or more.

DeRozan and a first on top of that. That's pretty good for a rental.
