    [QUOTE=offset formation;10655232]Then praised his play, post-game. At least I didn't see anywhere in Pop's comments that he was earning more playing time. That is the kiss of death and stuff of career enders with the Spurs.[/QUOTE

    with thad in the doghouse it should provide an opportunity. Unless pop continues to over rely on ewwbanks

    I like his aggression over Poeltl. I dont like either Eubanks or Poeltl offensively tho both do decently on the PnR.

    I think we’ll see more of Landale as the season progresses. Landale knows the game as per Pop’s interview, like Tony and Manu coming in from international games. Landale’s stint at Austin is to get him more in game-shape and the speed of NBA players, and I think Landale has shown enough to make Pop test him against the Jazz in meaningful minutes, and I think Landale responded very well. He has been patient instead of whining over it. He’s shown great at ude, doing everything he’s told, and ready to play when his number was called. I suspect we’ll see more of him going forward.

    in other words: He’s over himself now

    Purtel getting murdered an Pop don't put Jock in why exactly!?! Cuz he made a defensive mistake? The kings picked on Purtel an he doesn't spread the floor worth a damn. Stevie Wonder can see how Jock spreads the floor an the lanes open up for everyone.

    At least you busted a nut. Landale is not the saviour. Damion Jones >>>> Jock Landale. Think about that.

    Exactly what was on my mind at the game earlier. Pop even put Jones on Haliburton in the 4th. It was over when Haliburton went to work on Jones and Jakob.

    I was sad. It's time for Pop to go. If you're gonna get beat cuz Jock makes a mistake, at least he spreads the floor. It's clear Purtel & Eubanks can give us much of anything. An they're getting beat on defense. What's the difference if Jock gets beat!?! I don't think Jock is the savior, I just think he opens the floor an give driving lanes

    Does Jock have the defensive skills to play some PF. When we play teams with two legit big men at the C and PF positions, all we got is one big (Drew or Poertle) and a slew of undersized players giving away inches and pounds. Since he likes to play outside on offense, does he have the speed to defend some big men out there as well????? Speculating because I haven't seen enough of him in games to tell.

    Way to slow on defense to play the 4 unfortunately.

    Does that mean Jones > Poeltl too, then? Should I let that stew in my noodle too?

    yeah he has zero lateral movement. But at least he stretches the floor and is a decent defender of the 5. He just can't stay with any switches beyond the 5 really which kinda makes him unplayable, I'm sad to say.

    nah, just Pop < any other coach in the NBA pretty much, at least in regards to gameplan & X and O's.

    You can have the best tools and be at every job you do, if you don't utilize them correctly. And last night... Was a tragedy for tools around the world.

    Going back to Drew in the 2nd half wasnt the solution however. Jock's1st half play was good enough.

    Best game so far. His impact cant be ignored. Threes, rebounding and stout defense. Yet to be used in the post which is his strength.

    The big question how will grandpa progress from here in regards to his role.

    My prediction. He will soon forget and drew will be ahead of him in the rotation. Not enough to be ingrained in pops mind.

    I hope im wrong.

    Until Landale is starting to get Pop’s trust. Obviously Spurs are better with him on the court, as he stretches the floor and his motor. As I’ve said I think we’ll start seeing more and more. Also I think they’ve decided to not play Thad anymore. Obviously the guy did not appreciate the minutes Pop tried to play him and whine about his minutes, when I thought he understood where Spurs are in rebuilding mode playing and developing the young players.

    Thing is, will Zollins steal his minutes just when we think he's about to earn more?

    Zollins can play PF. Should be able to play with Landale. How's Zach's 3? Can he space the floor like Landale?
