Default Spurs depth is severely underrated

Despite not having their best player and their primary backup pg, the Spurs are 12-7 thanks to the likes of Splitter, Leonard, Neal and Green.

In the last five games, Splitter is averaging 15 points and 6 rebounds in a very efficient 24 minutes a game.

It should be noted that in the last five games, Pop has finally started playing the second year center consistent minutes. Something Spurs fans called for last year.

I was just about to make a thread about Splitter. I haven't seen him play much, but I have him on my fantasy team, and his production per minute is amazing. Easily a 20/10 PF/C given starter minutes.

Yeah, it's amazing it took Pop this long to get with the program.

The problem is Pop doesn't like playing Duncan and Splitter together so his minutes are limited in that regard.

When Duncan sat against Houston, Splitter showed what he can do (25/10/4 in 32).

When he becomes more aggressive. He's too passive offensively and it hurts the team. His shooting funk at the beginning of the season seems to have made him too hesitant.

They do a really good drafting and they know how to teach guys their respective roles in Pop's system. The Spurs' system does a really good job of providing specific parts for every guy to fill. So when the reserves come in, they don't miss a beat.

The front office and player management of the San Antonio Spurs has been world class for awhile now. The Spurs during the David Robinson era endured the rollercoaster effect, meaning, success here/failure there. Not to take anything away from what the Admiral did for the Spurs franchise, but it wasn't until the Duncan era that the Spurs really evolved into the dynasty they became. Well, actually, you could argue Parker, Manu also played just as critical a role but before them, DR and TD won a title themselves to ignite the actual dynasty.

The take away point is San Antonio has been coached and just as importantly managed player wise to keep this franchise like I said world class, and highly competitive year after year... after year! They were grossly feared by the entire West at one point, and at a minimum respected amongst the entire league. They're expected to have the capability to win any game at any given time. I'm sure they're 'prepared for' by the league more on average than most other teams, even today.

But seriously, I make one post a month and average 1.5 posts a day and THAT some how qualifies me enough to be compared to a 14 year old Clippers stan who spends every moment not in school on this forum?

It's as if fans of teams can't discuss their teams on a sports forum dedicate to that team's sport.

ISH be crazy.
