Taj is also there defensively, but I've been waiting for his offense to come along for years.

Neither one is overrated. Just solid ball players.

Kawhi is playing in a system where he's the fast guy and gets those opportunities to shine, I think if jimmy was on the spurs, you'd see the exact same development Kawhi is displaying.

Taj could start if his offense would take shape and become consistent

Yeah I know he's not a great shooter, but I feel safer if he doesn't have to always drive/force a shot

Neither injury was from a drive or forced shot though. The first one was because of an admittedly stupid jump pass which should never be attempted. And yesterday was him trying to keep his balance and chase down Batum off a turnover.

Yesterday he admitted he had turf toe and his hamstring was still sore....and we saw what happened.

Every ball player has aches n sores

Just because thibs don't baby his players doesn't put him at fault

I can't stand when some teams DNP key players for rest. Like they're precious and fragile. Dude they're grown professional athletes. Get outta here w that weak shit

That's exactly what i'm talking about. "Neither one is overrated" yet Taj and his no offence is a starter, and Butler is as good as a player who does literally everything better than him. Just stop.

That's right, run your players into the ground. Hell, why do you even need a bench, just play the starters 48mins a night.

Kawhi is the same exact player as jimmy.

Different systems, different development, shockingly same player at the same time

Tell me something Kawhi does that just outclasses butler so much that this discussion is bullshit.

They could play more than 48 minutes each night and be fine

Injuries will happen if you're injury prone.

Rest don't change shit, you're just prolonging the inevitable.

Is there something you don't understand about the word "everything"? He does everything better, as in there is no part of the game of the game that Butler is better.

Kawhi is a better defender (team and man), shot-blocker and passing lane player.

Better at moving the ball and playmaking.

More athletic, with longer arms, hands .

Better at offence.

Better at EVERYTHING.
