    -Unleashed Keldon Johnson. Agree. Keldon certainly has the athleticism and skills to be out there playing. And love the motor of that kid.
    Even had the cojones to give him fourth quarter minutes.

    -Ran a couple plays for Lonnie Walker IV. Agree. He can make those open shots, or take it to the hole if his man plays tight.

    -Recognized that Rudy Gay is a center in today's NBA and DeMar DeRozan is a power forward. Well it depends on the line-up. Against Charlotte's small line-up... yes

    -Didn't go to the Patty Mills well over and over again late in the game. Love it. Not to mention Forbes.

    -Never panicked and, correspondingly, team never panicked. Agree. That's the Spurs I know. Instead of putting a Beli/Forbes to try to "outscore," Coach Timmy hung on Defense to win the game
    Just needs to play White more ... but that was impressive for TD's first try

    TD did the postgame interview?

    Seeing as how that's mandatory for head coaches, maybe he's preparing . . . . . . . . . . .
    Was talking with co-worker about this a few minutes ago. Before game they were talking about Hardy or Becky would do the post-game even though Duncan was already announced as head coach. Is it mandatory for HC to do media obligation or as long as one of the coaches on the staff does it?

    I know doing media is mandatory for regular, full-time head coaches. I don't know if it would have been mandatory for TD since he was a fill-in.

    But, yeah, if TD ever wants to be a full-time head coach, he'd have to get used to do media.



    Did well. Shot down that one off-topic question in a Pop-esque manner

    That is what we thought but didn't Becky do post game for Pop last month?

    This was when Messina was in town.

    If you have a valid excuse, you can skip out on media. For example, players are technically obligated to do media but if they are in the trainer's room, that an acceptable excuse.

    That Becky game, Pop's excuse was he was catching up with Messina. I guess that was a good enough excuse for the NBA not to fine him.

    Yep. The Becky fanboys were getting annoying on Twitter.
    This, I don't get it.. I think she will be a fine coach but they act like she is prime Pop in a pantsuit.

    She looked really good leading the spurs to a summer league championship one year, that's where the hype comes from.

    Too bad Tim didn't suit up. He'd still be better than almost everyone out there.

    I don't think she or any woman will ever coach in the NBA.

    That's not a matter of competences or knowledge and we know Becky is filled with them but imagine you're a GM and consider Becky as a coach... Think longer with all the ins and outs and you'll probably conclude that can't do it, which Pop and RC did...

    That's one thing to coach for a few games a bunch of obeying, docile rookies and no name wannabees in summer league, that's another to coach day in day out male NBA star or superstar millionaires.

    At the end of the day men are men, women women and guys don't react the same way with a woman, either by mysoginy or on the contrary to protect her. There are a lot of things going on in a team's life and players won't act and react as naturally with a woman as head coach, even unconsciously.

    I don't see Harden, Westbrook, Lebron, Kawhi, LMA or whoever being really receptive or impressed by a Becky's rant or yelling at them at half time, on the bench or in practice as I don't see them follow her lead... Players and coaches may clash too sometimes, which can be sane but players wouldn't as naturally air it out with a female coach. How would she deal with players clashing or fighting too?

    There's a lot of testosterone and psycholgy going on between a coach and players, a mix of "bro" codes or father figure depending, that need to be there for players to accept the coach leadership then form a "team" they all belong to. That won't exist with a woman that will never really belong to the group no matter what and will stay external. You can't fight nature.
    .
    That exclusion would physically manifest by her absence from the locker room where a lot of things are playing, for the most part... "Beware guys, towels on... Coach Becky wants to get in... I don't see her knocking at a player's hotel room on the road to talk either...

    imagine you're an NBA GM and you have to pick a coach... All things considered, do you really give your team filled with 7 foot, male, 20-30 millionaire, egotic athlet stars to Becky?

    I don't think a GM will.

    If Pop decides to retire I think Timmy would be perfect to take over for him if he wants it. He has a passion for the game and the smarts, that's all you need to be a good head coach. You have to enjoy and be into the game just as much as the players. Nothing against Becky but Pop must see Timmy's HC potential.

    I wonder it's like being inside your mind, where all these NBA players are happily falling into line and playing hard for their male coaches...

    https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/...n-playoff-push

    ...nodding politely as they're being yelled at or called names...



    ...naturally "airing it out"...



    ...breaking up on-court fights...



    ...or locker room fights...

    https://uproxx.com/dimemag/san-anton...m-naked-fight/

    Yes it all makes sense that only a man can lead men. It isn't like people are people and have different ways of dealing with people, or that men could appreciate having a female manager that builds them up and leads them to success.
