    Only Becky can stand up to Pop now on the Spurs' bench. Man, I miss Messina and Udoka.
    After he got cucked by Amy, he's been incredibly soft mentally. It's quite sad.

    Here it was avoided, once again, that Popovich should leave. = (

    This game was won with 4th quarter defense. Forbes on the bench allowed the defense to surface. Of course that most likely would not have mattered had Becky not yelled at Pop to challenge the bad call. We know Pop has been slipping but it was really telling to watch it in slow motion with the challenge call.

    Will this finally signal the end of Forbes' reign of terror in the starting five?

    I wonder why Forbes regressed so badly since last season. The starting 5 last year was similar and forbes played at a much higher level.

    Pop will give him the chance to redeem himself tomorrow with 30 minutes on good quality playing time.

    I'll settle for Marco digging into Forbes' minutes. It's a mile from ideal but the lesser of two uniquely ty options

    The biggest issue for Lonnie and Dejonte is passing up open 3s to dribble into a contested mud range jumper. That is bad offense and you have to shoot that mid-range extremely better than the 3 in order to make it the right choice. That needs to end. You just need to make one out of 3 in order to make it a good move.

    Just finished watching the game. Just lol at senile Pop not bothering to challenge with 1:28 left in the ing game. Thank god for mah Becky.

    That alone deserves an F, timvp. Maybe give him an F+ for not going back to his lover Brent for once. Although Marco did play like 13-14 of last 15 minutes so it's a toss-up, tbh.

    Forbes regressed for a couple of reasons. One, he's taking way harder shots. It used to be like pulling teeth to get the guy to shoot open 3s and now he shoots horrible contested shots off the dribble like he's Steph Curry. Also he just shot better than his actual skill level last year. It was an outlier.


    Dude is really awful this year. Shouldn't be in the rotation at allych less a starter.

    It's crass to say, but there has to be somebody that pulls them aside and es them out for like that. It's really unacceptable.

    Unfortunately, we don't have a leader on the team.

    Sorry way too much time on my hands but I reviewed Forbes' game log to see where this performance stood.

    1) his 16 minutes is only the 4th time out of 40 games he's played less than 20 minutes
    (this is considering his 26mpg is 3rd highest on the team)
    2) 16 min ties for his lowest of the season (other was Dec 14 vs Phx - he went 0-8 for 0 points in that game)
    3) his 3rd game not making a single shot
    4) 2 pts is tied with his 3rd lowest output of the season (0, 0, 2 previous lowest totals)
    5) last four games he's 9-37 (24.3%) from the field, and 5-21 from 3pt (23.8%)
    (he averages 10 FGA per game, third highest on the team)

    Just so I'm not completely piling on the poor fellow, he's been a solid 87% from the FT line for the year, which is the highest on the team.

    Dj really needs to just let it fly. His mid range is money but that 3 shot is there and he isn't capitalizing on it.

    He really wasn't good last season, either. His defense was just as abysmal and his chucking was just as annoying. Admittedly, his peak was against the Nuggets in the playoffs and it fooled me into thinking he belonged in a playoff NBA roster but now, we see the disastrous results of him as a starter and it's only getting worse. It's so worse, he may not even belong on an NBA roster after all. The teams who didn't draft him knew what they were doing when they passed him over.

    And he visibly pouts on the sideline when he gets few minutes. This is even after getting waaay more than he deserved last year and this year, and being given a starting job in the NBA.

    Forbes shy about taking open threes last season? He took 5 three point attempts a game last year. He was also 3rd in shot attempts. That's not being gun shy. He just amped up his chucking this year.

    Pop is drinking the SJW Kool-Aid. There is no question about it. It's been that way for years, and it's getting worse as he ages.

    He thinks he has all the answers, but he does not.

    Basketball is not where Pop's passion and focus is anymore, it's clear.
