    Star? Lonnie is no star and tonight should bring idiots like you back to earth. 5pts on 20% shooting which is par the course for Lonnie as he’s very inconsistent. He’s inconsistent and he’s not even the focal point of the defense, yet he has more bad games than good. Kawhi left, get over it
    He's a star; that's happening. Why does this bother you and Gregg? Are you guys showing the fans about Kawhi, like you said?

    Lonnie is inconsistent which is to be expected from a player in his first real NBA season. But one thing that he does well is defend and defense is the biggest issue on this team which is why people want him to play something close to 30 minutes. His defense is the main reason why people want him to start

    lmfao a star? I get you’re a special kind of stupid so it’s expected that I should repeat myself but again, 5pts on 20% shooting is not star level, especially when you’re not the focal point of the defense but only muster 5pts

    ^^ 2/10 troll.

    Kawhi Leonard was 3-15 on Dec 3rd vs Portland.
    I guess he sucks and should give it up to guys like Bryn Forbes.

    Yup. Do these Pop suckers expect Lonnie to go 5-7 FG, 15 pts every time Gregg gives him 17 minutes (rather, every time Gregg steals half his minutes)?

    It's more important for Lonnie to develop well. We aren't winning this season.

    Way to look at this is number of minutes played per game when available (DNP - coach’s decision). Carroll and Walker are a lot lower in % of available minutes played on that list.

    The Raptors, like any other sane team, were hunting and exploiting him last night. At least Pop recognizes Walker's defensive upside and played him that last 40 seconds... Lol

    Development isn't so much something that happens on the bench despite the sh** that's been shoveled into your hole.

    its not like he is rotting on the bench right now ... he is not doing anything right now to deserve more than 15-20 minutes ... watching him up drives and layups is as infuriating as watching Forbes on defense

    I don't have ESPN+ but caught a glimpse of a story led Five young NBA trade targets who could thrive on new teams... the video the played was about a minute and a half of Lonnie Walkers highlights. Anybody read this? Even ESPN is kinda calling out Pops stupidity. Going to be a damn shame if they can't retain this kid.

    his minutes are trending upwards ... now he needs to play even more besides Demar and not only as his subs ute
    That's the problem. Popovich is now giving Lonnie some minutes, but only at the 3 spot. He's very clearly a 2 and should be getting a lot of those Forbes/Bellynelly minutes.

    Lonnie Walker IV | San Antonio Spurs

    One of my favorite non-lottery prospects from the 2018 NBA draft, the 21-year-old has had an up-and-down couple of seasons under head coach Gregg Popovich. Aside from a 28-point outburst in a win over the Rockets in December, Walker's highlights have been sparse through 34 games this season -- after spending the majority of his rookie campaign in the G League, which is becoming standard protocol for Spurs rookies.

    Popovich appreciates smart offense and intense defense from his non-stars, and Walker's biggest questions entering the league were decision-making and defensive consistency. It is no surprise that the pairing hasn't always been a match.

    These cir stances are what a deadline shopper should be looking for, as a young, rebuilding team ready to move a win-now veteran could help push the Spurs into the playoff mix while landing a steal in Walker. So if the Spurs decide to become deadline buyers, Walker should be an interesting piece given his athletic profile and shot-creating potential. On a young team with more freedom and the goal of development through reps, Walker could flash his scoring instincts and physical gifts.
    Most effective playing off others out of catch-and-shoot and closeout situations right now, Walker has shown brief glimpses of shot-creation potential out of ball screens. His ability to rise up off the dribble at will could be the table setter for a dynamic pick-and-roll attack, should Walker develop more feel and finesse around the rim as a finisher. He has the tools to check either guard spot in a pinch, flourish in transition and score at all three levels.
    The Spurs' front office likely remains high on the former first-round pick, but should San Antonio get aggressive at the deadline, Walker is the first name I'd target on that roster.
    Wow, I guess Belli and Bryn are just so good at that DEFENSIVE CONSISTENCY

    Oh, lets not forget that DECISION MAKING

    Roll TAPE.........










    another Mike Schmitz GEM of a take

    That guy on EPSN about LaMello Ball is talking out of both sides of his mouth and therefore completely full of !

    Ho- ! Just watched the rest of Schmitz take... inadvertently throwing manure at Pops mentality. You must let the kids play and figure it out! In my line of work they made us go thru a workshop about hiring and capitalizing on Millennials. They are different from us that came up without the internet to answer everything know to man. Yes a bit stuck-up and condescending buttttt there is some legitimacy to that.

    Long story short: Pop has to give these talented kids a chance. But he won't.

    He's getting playing time. He needed to demonstrate in practice that he understood the offensive and defensive system. It was obvious that he was missing a lot of assignments as it was if you had any idea of what you were watching.

    And it would have been extremely counterproductive to just trot him back out after he the bed against Kawhi earlier in the season.

    You are like the dumbass NFL coach that thinks its a good idea to play your rookie QB every down even when he's getting his ass pounded into the ground and has no idea what he is doing in an NFL system.

    i'm no forbes hater but what i saw out of him, from row 12, during that OT game vs Sacramento was a disgusting display of getting beat by your man play after play after play. it's like he just looked up the definition of defense before he hit the court that night.

    if he can get the mins he gets then i have no clue why lonnie can't get the same amount of mins if not more.

    as well, if marco can get the mins he gets too while playing shooting circus shots and playing no defense either then lonnie deserves the same if not more.

    That's something role players do. This kid is special. He should be learning on the job.

    Have you not watched Forbes play defense? He's effectively a missed assignment on every play.

    Arguing against playing the superior player going forward because a superstar had a good night. You must be a certified Pop's ass sniffer.
