One of the key differences a healthy Spurs team in the playoffs would show compared to the one they're rolling out now is less reliance on young players like Forbes and Brandon Paul who probably gave Harden 10 FTs on stupid fouls.

You won't see this from the guys getting big minutes in the playoffs. The Rockets free throw attempts would dwindle in a series against the Spurs and people would be crying about the refs when the reality is the core Spurs players KNOW how to play defense on the Rockets. Hands CLEARLY the fvck up with no room for stupid ambiguous fouls.

Spurs have been so injury plagued that most people probably don't realize they've had a fully healthy roster in exactly 1 game this season. Aldridge is pivotal. Leonard is pivotal. Those two command so much defensive attention and the silver lining of the injuries is that these two will be surrounded by excellent, confident shooters and young legs to balance with the vets.

LaMarcus on suicide watch seeing Lillard at the 3 seed

Dude thought he was going to be a champ and show Lillard. What a huge backfire.

Most people predicted them to be a playoff team IF Embiid is healthy...

The Spurs franchise is about a year or two from crumbling into complete oblivion.

LMA is a soft jump shooting big that simply isn't good enough to be a #1, Kawhi wants out, Pop will realize the imminent shitstorm on the horizon and get out before it's too late.. then what do the Spurs have besides a small market team that no other stars will ever want to play for?

Not really

LAC: Gallo/Blake
Denver: Millsap
Jazz: Gobert
Spurs: Leonard
Pelicans: Cousins



Would have been unfair if minny was the only team without any major injuries. Hardly an excuse
