    Rudy Gay had 20 points on 8 for 21. On what planet does old ass Rudy take 21 shots.

    Which is my point. Have a look at Curry, top 3 best player. Won 6 more games than the Spurs. My point is because DDR cannot lead a team to the playoffs doesn't mean he is bad. He is still very very good.
    Curry led his team to an 8th seed which is playoffs. Demar, these past two seasons, has led the Spurs to 11th last season and 10th this season. That's non-playoffs in a normal year(play-ins are bull ). I'm not sure why you want to give somebody props for leading a team to a treadmill finish two years in a row. He's not good enough to build a pretender, let alone a contender. What's the point of having him? If you want to miss the playoffs, the youngsters are perfectly capable of doing that on their own. If anything, his inability to lead the team to the playoffs has proven how much of a failure the Kawhi trade was. They wanted to "compete" instead of blowing it up. Instead, they've done neither and are worse off for it. Three wasted years of Demar isos leading to mediocre picks and flawed prospects as a result.

    Agreed. If Demar was a legit star he would managed to get the Spurs in the playoffs the last two years.

    Can't tell if he's crying...
    He's definitely crying and that's frustrating because he wasn't pushing himself hard at all.

    That hurts but itís the kind of thing that I hope builds mental toughness, and compe ive desire. The playoffs arenít for the faint hearted and is full of heartbreaks even if you get to it bc thereís only one champion at the end. Demar isnít the kind to teach mental toughness.

    Guys have to feel like they left it all on the court and draw confidence from that, then come back better. Thatís the only way to handle it, I think. He looks like heís crying yeah. He needs a vacation, I bet the end of the season (so many losses in a row) and this ending is mentally draining and exhausting.

    This will make making the playoffs in the future with this young core that much more meaningful. Especially if we can do it with this young group.

    One more rant and then I'm done. Pop wanted the young Spurs to experience a playoff game feel. Walker got 17 minutes and VAssell got 10. Jones, Weatherspoon, and Diop got zero. DDR got 38 minutes, Rudy Gay got 27 minutes, and Patty Mills got 30 minutes. So we made the play-in so that Vassell could get 10 minutes of playoff basketball experience?

    I don't get why drew Ebanks didn't get any time. Jacok was clearly being outplayed and or needed another big to help get rebounds especially after he would rotate to protect the rim. Jonas was the MVP of the game by far for the Grizz. Strange considering Ebanks played a lot this year and was the reason we dropped Metu. Also I don't get why for the love of god pop dosent use challenges. There was a clear instance where the grizz got a 3 point shooting could when Jaren Jackson clearly was not shooting and pop didn't challenge...and we lost by 4, small stuff like that adds up

    My prediction: DDR goes 5-19, gets an ill advised T after giving up a 3pt play and misses a crucial free throw down the stretch of a Spurs loss.

    GSG!!!
    Prophetic

    [*Goes and checks boxscore*]

    Their defense is the only reason they're still in this game, TBH, and the fact that Memphis isn't a high volume three - point team.
    Memphis' lack of making wide open shots was why the Spurs were still in the game. They got great looks and blew by Spurs defenders whenever they wanted.

    Agreed the Jazz would have swept them by 20 points in every game. There is no point to be in the playoffs if you are just going to get your ass whooped every game. That's basically like not being there.

    Yeah, that was real BS. The only young player who might've gotten something out of last night's game is DJ, tbh. Lonnie I feel would've been better off if he'd missed the game altogether 10 measly minutes, some shots that didn't fall, then Pop banishes him to the bench for the rest of the game. What's that supposed to do for his confidence, especially as he sees the vets chuck away the loss? Vassell too, hardly any floortime. Keldon was disappointing but at least he played, too. And wasn't Tre Jones talking on IG a couple days ago? My guy saw literally 0 minutes

    It's no mystery to see why the young guys consistently defer to the vets. When you have such a glaring disparity in playing time, shot orders, and hierarchy set in place by the coach, what are they supposed to do? Rise up against their own coach, freeze out the vets? Nah....

    In case it wasn't clear enough, this game made it painfully obvious: the Spurs do not have a PF. DeMar at the 4 is a joke, no explanation needed; Keldon is woefully undersized - even if he can "hold his own" against bigger players on man-to-man D (his team defense yesterday was nonexistent), he lacks every single instinct that makes PFs valuable, lackluster rebounding for his position, no box-outs, no perimeter threat unless it's a wide-open C&S, etc. And Rudy Gay is just.... Old. Way too old to be helping Jakob do the dirty work on the glass and on D. Guy's closer to retirement than he is to pull contested offensive rebounds, tbh.

    I urge anyone who doesn't believe me to pull some tape from the middle-of-the-season games where Luka was played alongside Jakob. Luka, while not the best rebounder, is a really good presence when he's given minutes - he's got the height, adequate length, can box-out, pull boards, and most importantly, be a presence in the paint to deter rim shots when Jakob's pulled towards the perimeter to defend guards and wings. Which guard in the NBA is scared by seeing DeRozan alone in the paint, waiting for them, tbh?

    Jonas is the better player than Jak, but he's not as good as we made him look last night, or close to it. Spurs need to get bigger in the worst ways. Hopefully Luka's hand heals soon, because I really like the defensive potential of a DJ-White-Keldon-Luka-Jak lineup, or Vassell at the 3.

    Those are big words for two guys who saw us losing today and didn't show any aggression.

    Devin better hit the weights and take his dribble game from a C- to a B this summer.

    And Keldon better really nut up over the summer the way he passes up shots currently.

    Right now this is very much just talk.
    this is like when the team talked at the beginning of the season: "We know what we're capable of", "We will be back in the playoffs" and all that other bull . They were talking about being able to win games like it was winning the championship

    I'm just annoyed they can't do simple math. Everyone told them since before LAST season ended that they ALL needed to come back shooting 3s. Who listened? Just injured Fathead2.
