    Yes but only a small difference because he played like 9 fucking games on minute restrictions.

    It probably goes down 1 game at most.

    It doesn't correctly account for Kawhi playing next year.

    The tweet from the guy who built the model literally says the Spurs projection will "go way down" when Kawhi is traded.

    The Spurs played without Kawhi last year and hit 47 and his model now has the same number with Kawhi playing? That's fucking retarded at face value. Dont post dumb stuff no more.

    Pretty clear you don't understand how projection systems work. The focus shouldn't be the exact win total--models are generally going to regress teams' wins toward the mean--but the Spurs' ranking in the West. Beyond that, who on the Spurs is going to be better than last season? 32 year old Aldridge? 38 year old Pau? 41 year old Ginobili? 31 y/o Danny? 31 y/o Rudy?

    Murray is the only clear candidate for significant improvement.

    Projections should project. This doesnt project. Its flawed. You wanna bet money if Kawhi stays how many wins we get?

    You're right. No one on the Spurs will age. The fact that the Spurs' rotation is made up of mostly 30+ year olds--Aldridge, Manu, Marco, Pau, Danny & Rudy--doesn't make the team more prone to decline or injury. Kyle's strong defensive numbers were a fluke. He's slow after all, so the stats saying he's valuable must be flawed. The fact that the West got even better this offseason won't impact the Spurs at all. None of the talented young players on other teams across the league will improve. The Spurs will win exactly 61 win games again just like the last season Kawhi was healthy.

    Thanks for showing me the light.

    If Kawhi stays he'll get injured again and just hide from Pop in NY, so Spurs will have the same record as last year

    He will likely play unless something dramatic happens in the way of an all-star being offered and Kawhi cooperating. I think the chemistry will be a problem early, but then the game will take over and we will be #2 or #3 in the West.

    Spur fans still think the Spurs have the championship core. That team is gone.

    They'd be a distant second best team in the league

    If he ends up playing what's to stop him from pulling a VC? Not a damn thing that's what
    he would lose endorsement money if he did that

    How accurate was his model last year? Stats need to track real life to have any use.

    A healthy Spurs with Kawhi at an MVP level should be the favorites against anyone other than GSW or Celtics.
