    Samanic is part of the future... With crybaby out, Luka should be given that position and given chance to keep proving himself. He did and he should've been rewarded with minutes tonight... bad coaching.

    You didn't say he was trash, you said he was "one of the most overrated players in franchise history", which is a take, not only because Poeltl is not overrated whatsoever, and matter-of-factly underrated by most of the fanbase in terms of what he contributes to the team, but also because there's notoriously more overrated players than him, given half the board believes Nephew is better than Curry

    So yeah, par for the course take
    Heís definitely overrated when re s like you and Dejounte compare him to Gobert and Wiseman in 5 years

    This dude is the walking example of how meaningless advanced stats are actually watching the games is still the best way to evaluate a player. No one gives a flying what his DBPM is when heís getting his pushed in every night on the boards and has regressed year by year on his free throws despite having Chip Engelland on speed dial

    Lethargic, fatigue - call it what you will. Game is not an accurate representation of what this team will be in 2 weeks.
    Not playing Sham, regardless of hierarchy, is plain puzzling though. We got smashed on the boards and guys were clearly physically outmatched.
    not playing luka tonight was just stupid especially with the way he’s been playing. Our depth is probably our biggest asset I don’t know why we go to like 8 man rotations. I’d like to limit mins of a few of the vets and get a guy like luka 15 mins a night. He can make a big difference for this team

    Sam only got minutes because Pop's beloved vets(Rudy Gay in this instance) were out with Covid. As long as the vets are healthy, Sam will have to be content with GLeague. Most puzzling thing is why it has to be Gay or Sam in the first place. I'd rather have Luka absorb the minutes Lyles got tonight

    Again, being a center won't take advantage of his strengths. Gay is the one who needs to go to make room for Luka. If he's a center, we won't be seeing much of his great perimeter defense we've been seeing lately.

    Then they shouldn't be there that long... the right call was to play Luka and Diop with length and size.. Spurs were outrebounded and slow on closeout which Luka and Diop could've helped.

    Very possibly, but the team isn't so deep that they can just sit them both. We need them both to play at a high level for this to even come close to sniffing the playoffs.

    Disappointed with Derrick's effort and performance even with knowing COVID after effects are an issue.

    Ignoring all the ranting, crying and usual trolling, that was another ty loss where it felt like no one was playing with any energy or intensity.

    Crazy to think but the team needs Vassell back in the worst way. And the team will need to quickly and decisively make a decision with the back up 5.

    Playing Gay & Lyles out of position isn't gonna work especially with their lack of physicality, shot blocking and interior defense.

    So, either we squeak into the playoffs or grab another lottery pick while moving past this current "era" or group.

    Also, unless things turn around soon I'm becoming worried about Derrick White. He's been absolutely terrible and disappointing as provided what he showed in the '20 NBA Bubble. We need him to become an adequate creator/playmaker or I see DeMar returning in the team's future.
    That hit of Covid really messed up the teamís momentum. And of course White got the bad end of it after he just got into rhythm again. He was great against Charlotte so I havenít given up on him. Now the Aldridge leaving situation makes things a little more difficult. Spurs are more thin at C than ever.

    I don't mean to put Luka on Center but PF

    DJ, Lonnie, Demar, Luka, Poeltl - better spacing and rebounding.
    Keldon is energy guy and could really take the Manu role
    White, Mills, Vassell, Keldon, Gay/Eubanks
    Tre, Diop, Lyles

    The only reason not to play Luka but instead go with Lyles and Rudy is if they are seriously shopping them an Walker not playing at all in the 4th might he be part of a trade?

    Crazy to think Luka could have actually helped tonight with the rebounding problems.

    Our status as one of the very worst 4th quarter teams in the league hasn't changed. It's completely psychological too.

    Few months ago folks swore benching LMA and playing Poeltl 30min would fix our problems and now it seems like Samanic is the next great White hope

    The sooner y’all realize every big on this roster is garbage and wouldn’t start on any of the 29 other teams, the better.

    Lyles/Eubanks combined 11 minutes tonight are there for the taking between Samanic and Vassell. I'll handle the losses as long as these two guns get run the rest of the year

    Yeah, that was okay "ish" when the team was playing with a lead and Dallas wasn't being aggressive, but once the switch flipped that needed to stop.

    Pop loves reverting to that nonsensical thought that Patty's quickness can allow him defender bigger guys but it can be easily exploited if you go to it often (which Pop does).

    Just a badly coached game & defensive strategy against Doncic and Porzingis in the second half.

    How many designed plays did Wombat have there in the 4th to chuck up a three? Must've been atleast 5. So ridiculous.

    The Gay isos were stupid af too smh.

    Yes, because Poeltl is worse than Kelly Olynyk, Daniel Theis or old ass DeAndre Jordan. I could look up more guy, but I'm remembering than you're an idiot that thinks poor man's Shawn Marion (Brandon Clarke) would've been our savior.

    The same guy that can't start over Kyle Anderson.

    This Mavs are a poor match up because they play 5 - Out and Pop is unwilling to go to a zone (for long stretches).

    True, I'm currently just worried that he'll revert back to that passive, over thinking style he displayed so often last season before the NBA bubble.

    Yeah, Pop should've worked things out with Aldridge, through at least the off-season, if he lacks so little confidence in Eubanks (he did little with his time to earn any) that he resorts to Lyles & Gay at the 5.

    If Pop doesn’t get a F or D letter grade I will be shocked.
