    Does anyone have a neutral analysis on why the spurs are under-performing and having humiliating losses. I remember last season the spurs had the same talent but went much further while this iteration of the spurs is significantly weaker. It seems like the Spurs are weak offensively but I'm not sure if that's the only reason.

    Lack of talent would be my first guess.

    the nutless coach that's probably going to talk about the impeachment probe after this hilarious loss? the ed rotations he runs?

    cuckold psycho depressed players like defrozen and LMA? as I type this demar bricked a 3 (0/3 this season btw) and then went on to brick the technical FT

    zero regard was paid by the front office to roster construction. why the do we have lonnie if we're not playing him? what is carroll good for in his current role? derozan is 0/4 now

    ing re pop is smiling and laughing right now and we're 0.500

    LMA and DDR aren't a good fit unless you can surround them with 3 outside shooters capable of playing high level defense. Even if you could, LMA has digressed. Basically, our players don't compliment each other.

    spurs were under .500 werent they, like 9-10 in the first 19 last year? we can only hope pop stops playing beli like he did Cunningham last year. but even this teams absolute ceiling is 8th seed / 1st round exit

    Technically not. Which is why Bertans is off the team.

    They have no shooting, their point guard is coming off ACL surgery and is still a year away from being truly healthy, they play a bunch of minus defenders a ton of minutes, they are not particularly elite at anything, ... I could go on

    Demarre hit 2 threes in the first half against the Celtics and hasn't sniffed the court since.

    And Beli. Don't you leave Beli out.

    And Wombat. Beli and Wombat.

    And Forbes' lack of defense. Definitely Beli, Wombat, and Forbes' lack of defense.

    So that's Pop, and DDR, and LMA, and Beli, and Wombat, and Forbes' lack of defense.

    i really feel it's the rotations... you can't preach defense and have so many weak links paired together. Pop is gonna have to start choosing what's more important, defense or his guys. One of Patty and Bryn should be out of the rotation or never be paired together. Belinelli needs to be out of the rotation. Demarre solves a lot but for some reason Pop is so rigid with what people's roles are. Dejounte and White should be paired more. If DJ doesn't play with white more now that his minutes restrictions is decreasing i don't know. White should not be playing 24 minutes a night when he is healthy. I don't care who's minutes you need to cut you need to do it. I know Pop loves 10 man rotations but maybe you cut it to 9 and play White and Murray more. Fat needs to be trimmed on this team. It's frustrating but if Pop could play Dante at 3 and 4 last year he can do it for Demarre. He's much better than we got now. Pop can be doing a lot more. Last year it took drastic measures for change and it sucks it's like that with him cause most of us see the obvious but changes need to be made.

I remember last season the spurs had the same talent but went much further while this iteration of the spurs is significantly weaker. It seems like the Spurs are weak offensively but I'm not sure if that's the only reason.
    Last year's team had all the same problems, minus a few clutch steals and rebounds from Dejounte:

    1. Literally one guy on the team can shoot 3s with any consistency when it matters.

    2. We couldn't defend Like Mike-aged Lil Bow Wow, let alone your average 2nd year first-round guard.

    3. We can't stop anybody taller than 6'8 regardless of their skill level displayed against other teams+

    4. Did I mention we can't shoot?

    5. The team's "stars" are built differently from how they like to play and how they like to play is the least efficient way to play: long 2-pointers and never 3s.

    6. The most promising guard on the roster is old enough to be an all-star and has the tools, but is hindered by a complex that leaves him far too hesitant to shoot the basketball.

    7. Our cat-quick starting point ALSO has a deadly fear of shooting the basketball from range, so no points from him unless they are letting him in the paint uncontested.

    8. Our best defenders are both 6'4 guards, but they never play at the same time.

    9. Our coach has yet to develop any sort of scheme to maximize what the roster is good at and may have been coasting on a lucky draft pick from 23 years ago all this time.

    Too many grey name players. Not enough bolds on the floor.

    problem 1 - the person responsible for assembling the roster.
    problem 2 - the person responsible for training this team.

    I vote for the impeachment of Pop.
    A coach that doesn’t care about Team USA losing and now he is not care about the Spurs.
    He like to talk about politics and he cannot do his own job right.

    A liberal with a communist and dictator mind.
