    Since Manu, Tim and Tony left things have been brutal. It doesnít even feel like Iím watching the Spurs anymore. And I thought things were bad when we had Kyle 13 minute mile Anderson. Itís been frustrating watching the Rockets land Westbrook ( even though some people here for some reason I donít understand didnít want him), the Lakers landed Davis, the Clippers landed the best player in the league ( who ESPN all of a sudden acknowledged when he left SA), the nets landed KD and can I go go on and on. And who did we get ? Some random dude Lyles? Another year of LA shooting fade away jumpers and DR scoring 19 points per game seems inevitable. You know things are bad when people were excited with a potential Morris signing. Will things change soon? The only two Spurs that somewhat remind me of the old guard are Mills and Beli, everyone else does not seem to have what the championship teams had. Expecting the classic Ē threadĒ or ďhe only has x number of posts what can you expectĒ trash talk.

    Just have to move on and not dwell on the past.

    Spurs are elite in their player development. That's what I follow. White definitely a plus.

    Walker looks ready to go.

    Samanic and Johnson look like they have the talent to take it next level.

    Surprised to see Forbes beat expectations.

    Too bad we lost Bertans.

    Big markets are hurting compe ive basketball even more so than ever before. Unfortunately small markets, in the long run, wont stand a chance unless something changes.

    Brutal would be the Kings, knicks, suns, and bulls. Spurs fans need to get a firmer grip on reality and stop being so ing whinny because we didn’t get Marcus Morris.

    There are fans of other franchises that would be very happy with 2 consecutive playoff years, let alone 22.

    The Duncan years were the best a fanbase can get. Now is normal. But it's a great normal -- the team is compe ive with three bright young guards to be excited about. Nothing can compare to Tim Duncan, but be glad we had him. Nothing ever lasts.

    Spurs made it worse by giving away Latino award contracts to the likes of washed up Evita.

    We would be in a better situation without such ups

    the last 3 offseasons have been horrible. We're probably another 7th/8th seed with a first round out

    We just came out of a dynasty. You can’t expect an immediate return to another, especially given what happened with Kawhi. It just takes time. I still believe we have the best front office in the game. And if we get back to the promise land solely through the draft and development, it will make it all the more sweeter. Other teams can seemingly only compete through snagging up free agents. I like our program much better for doing it the right way. Patience. All it takes is a couple of our young guys to blossom and we are there. It’s still fun to watch tbh. The big market teams are a dumpster fire, and they will crumble. A star can only prop them up for so long until their shaky organizational foundation fails them.

    Yeah, having three potential young guard stars really sucks.

    Key word there is potential which means that they currently aren’t and there’s a chance they may not ever be. We’ll know a lot more after this season. Either way these young guards won’t be franchise saving good. Interesting to watch and entertaining but spurs need to make some other moves to add around them if they want to get out of the 7-8 seed annual cycle

    having those 3 has nothing to do with the moves in the offseason. I don't factor in the draft and Murray was on the team before that

    To be honest, I don't give a about other teams power duos. We have plenty of young guys who will be great in next years.

    But when I read that a stupid asshole like Morris doesn't want to play for us because money/new york bigger city-market...Please just me

    Did the Raptors not show that given a good enough team, you can luck out and win the championship?

    At the start of last season, would anyone have believed that the GSW would actually lose?

    Now at least there's parity in the league. With a bit of luck, the Spurs could squeak it's way to the finals.

    The downward turn started with signing Pau when Timmy retired and his humongous deal, doubled down on Patty “the culture”. Went downhill from there.

    The draft is their saving grace. I do look forward to watching the development of their picks since then.

    Do people connect that overpaying Pau helps get people like Carroll? Agents know that San Antonio will low ball young players and overpay old.

    Brutal is being like the knicks, magic, suns, fakers, etc etc. we have 3 hall of famers retire and continue to make the playoffs. Most if not all franchises are in dark times of that happened to them. Just shows how well run this organization is. Sure there’s some negative that’s happened lately but compared to the rest of the league, it’s not even close.

    These are still “the good old days.” Come 2030 or so, we’ll look fondly on these shoulder years, the last few before Pop retired, before the team became a rudderless, lottery-bound mess under the feckless leadership of Peter Holt’s unqualified millennial kids, who would rather be running art galleries or playing Xbox with kids or whatever than running a business empire.
