    LOL. He's not the next Jordan. He's not even the next Jordan copycat, Kobe. He's 27, and has a grand total of 8250 points. At 27, Jordan had 16596 points, two healthy quads, and he started NBA ballin' at 21, not 19 like Kawhi. Just because a player copies someone else's moves doesn't actually MAKE them that person.
    I get your point. But scoring is a bad example.

    Tim Duncan scored less points in his career than Moses Malone, Dominique Wilkins, Hakeem, Dirk, Shaq, Karl Malone...But I would pick TD over any of those players. And I would choose Kawhi over Kobe without a doubt.

    Kawhi is a more complete and versatile player than Kobe. I would say he's way better than Kobe.

    (Edit: Kawhi has a unique way to dominate games but if I have to choose I would say it's more jordan-esque than kobesque.)
    This or his 10 pts in 2' vs GSW could help to understand

    Not sure why every thread has to be about Kawhi.

    If this thread is about DJ I would like to say that I'm still intrigued by his contract situation. But judging by how Pop talks about him it seems like his max contract is a fact, right?

    How do you know that? Do you think that he is not looking to get players to improve the team? Spurs fans have to realize that SA is a small market that doesn’t attract star players and not a great town either.

    I cant wait to kneel during the national anthem before the game, have an NPR podcast playing while watching the game, and then frogging while watching John Oliver after the game.

    Really? Youngest player to ever make an NBA All D team, and you see him as "a good culture guy"?

    "A coach can't change people," Gregg Popovich said before the Spurs obliterated the Nets on New Year's Eve. "They are who they are. No matter what team you're talking about, a coach can be observant and try to put his team in situations both on and off the court where some of that can develop, some of the camaraderie sorts of things. But you can't change people."

    Tim Duncan won RoY, and I saw him as "a great culture guy."

    Who do you think was available in a trade for Derozan? What team was going to realistically trade one or their star player for Derozan?

    as i remember there was a trade proposal from LAL including ingram,ball,hart and a pick. PATFO declined bc they wanted 3 or 4 picks (dont remember exactly).

    One shitty pick, two busts (both with health red flags), and a late first round selection (Hart). With the picks that were thrown around this summer for stars, the Spurs were in no way out of line with their request. The fact the Kawhi isn't a Laker and we aren't sitting on a pile of picks is all on the LAL. They got stupid again, and lost the summer's big prize for the second straight year.

    Exactly.
    Good move by PATFO rejecting Magics bullshit.
    The mistake was not playing Philly and Boston against the Flamers.

    Can't believe Ainge and Philly didn't offer substantially more. But can only speculate.

    1. u call this shitty pick but spurss late picks arent shitty?
    2. ddr isnt a bust? ingram is promising player but LAL wasnt good fit for him(like for randle), ball has court view and passing skills better than all the spurs players combined but he need to focuse on himself and dont listem to his dad. And im sure that with spurss coaches they would improve significantly. BTW dont forget that murray also has health red flag, is he a bust?
    3. these 3 guys have higher value on the market than ddr, so u could always trade them
    4. its amazing that i was sure that kawhi didnt want to play with lebron but pop or any guy in spurs didnt know that

    I want Murray to be an absolute god, but being real, who did he stop that year?

    Didn't he get the defensive team nod based on rebounding?

    He was on his way to being a Kawhi lite as far as disrupting passing lanes with his length and anticipation. Stuff that might not show up in the stat line.
    But ya those bird legs. Hoping he'll gain weight or at least gain strength like Shaun Birdlegs Livingston did.

    His second year was statistically equal to Kawhi's second year (slightly better, in fact).

    Murray's ability to play passing lanes without gambling is super helpful, as is his rebounding.

    Ingram has real health issue, Ball has a dad issue and cannot throw a rock in the ocean, hart is average and the pick was a late pick.

    Overall, I think that the Lakers, Celtics and Sixers are the big losers in the whole story.
