    *drumroll* (with min. 50 min played)

    Mills
    White
    Lonnie
    Gay
    Poodle

    With 84 minutes clocked so far, this line up is +31. The next best line up is +7 (Mills, Demar, Gay, Poodle, LMA).

    Give me one reason we shouldn’t blow it up.

    How about giving Lonnie a real chance before going that route?

    Define "blow it up" ?

    If it means not making the playoffs, pop has got that covered.

    If it means getting more ping pong balls, well, eventually pop will get there.


    Pop is the decaying orbit of his career.

    Or when the sample size is just 81 minutes. Usually there's a little used line-up that's the leader.

    Might happen if Murray ever learned to pass or run an offense.

    Murray is a great defender / rebounder / penetrator. Put him with four scorers / shooters. No need to overthink this.

    Murray is a great rebounder, good one-on-one defender, good team defender but gambles and gets lost sometimes. His penetration would be a lot more valuable if he'd make a good pass or the right decision once he has penetrated. Hopefully, with time this will be true. The Spurs have invested in him, but the elephant in the room is his backup (White) is better and as White gets healthier it become more and more obvious. Of course, White is older too, so take it all with a grain of salt.

    It's a shame we can't see that as a starting lineup, against other teams' starters, to see whether that less-than-2-minute-per-game lineup is really the Spurs' best.

    Of all the reasons someone might give for blowing it up, that isn't one. Personally, I was for a 1-year tank, and not blowing it up anyway.

    all Murray has to do is shoot more 3s. He's more Danny Green than Tony Parker. White and DeRozan run the offense

    At times, White's skill set shines more; but he's not consistent. White needs time to establish what kind of player he'll be in this league. Honestly, he seems like an upper middle class man's George Hill. I think people need to temper their expectations. Sure, he might drop a 30 in a playoff game, but it evens out.

    A guy like DJ has length that helps him to create plays on days that he's not in a groove. He's a prototypical young starter. While there are days his shot is not going and he looks disengaged, I feel like he does all the intangibles to get him through such times.

    Continually see one of White, Lonnie and DJ seemingly always having to have one of the midgets on the floor. Seriously lessens their impact.
    Example. DJ and Bryn Bryn out, White and Mills in. White and Mills out, IV and Bryn Bryn in.

    2. Have we seen White, Lonnie and DJ at the same time EVER this year? (Without a midget.)

    Murray still dribbles the ball too high to protect it when driving into the lane. He runs into trouble when help comes.
