    All these dudes are full-on locked in on the brainwash. It's hip to hate on the Spurs and has been for years. You ain't cool if you don't hate on the Spurs. Thanks ESPN, you started this crap in the 2003-2004 season.

    It's hard to understand what his actual complaints are here. He seems to make a lot of insinuations that he seems to even acknowledge he didn't have confirmation of. <br>
    <br>
    His beef is that he was behind Tony and Patty and they also brought in Nicolas Laprovittola... was he thinking that the 29th overall pick should be treated like the second coming? Most of this came off more as DJ sounding en led than it makes the Spurs look bad, tbh.<br><br>PS: acknowledging I didn't watch the whole interview, just this clip.

    In typical spurstalk fashion most of you gents (I use that term loosely) have jumped to conclusions and gotten in your feelings without full context… also most of you don’t watch Spurs games, let alone the NBA.

    Bunch of Karens in this .

    timvp you have a self set quota for articles this year right?

    This would be a good topic to watch, review and opine on.

    Tf is he even talking about in this clip? He's upset that a 67 win team didn't hand the keys over to the 29th pick from day one? Wtf does Laprovitola who only played like 18 games have to do with it? Weird rant

    It's just funny how Pop goes out of his way to mentor and develop players and they wind up spraying all over the place like fat, sassy hippos with helicoptering tails. Kawhi couldn't be bothered to say a single thing to the city and its fans who had supported him from the start.

    Any Spurs fan really gonna defend this punk? Seriously. What did Spurs ever do to this guy? 29th pick and he’s complaining about playing behind future HOFer TP? What is this guy smoking? The Spurs looking down at him like he’s gonna bring 30 people smokin’ joints?! See, that’s the punk kid talking, against authority. The guy will always be paranoid, maybe because he was in juvenile most of his teens. He never really grown out of that. And of all people accusing PATFO?? Anybody really gonna believe him Spurs is like that? this punk.

    Good interview format. Nice to hear the players talk among themselves rather than having the in-the-pocket local reporter ask pre-approved questions.

    He was ragging on the Spurs a bit but really the team came off well. He states himself that when he got the starting role Pop formalized it to both him and Tony directly. States they had some concerns about his character but he earned their trust.

    Any player that doesn't have their posse under control needs to be watched closely. I'm a Saints fan and two of the highest paid players on the team are looking at suspensions and/or jail time for stupid their posses got them into. Primo's career was recently ended because of whatever childhood trauma he'd been through combined with inept therapy and, if anything, negligent management that was _too_ hands off.

    Players want to keep it real with their hoodrat friends, frequently up their careers over stupid , then act insulted when teams try to protect them. Teams know a good chunk of these kids come from fatherless homes and what that leads to. They're not gonna be in denial of the statistical reality of that upbringing like most Americans are.

    Lapro had a lot of overseas experience so it's not like a rookie was stealing his time, and that was barely a blip on the radar of Spurs PG history. I forgot he even played for us till this interview.

    I hope Dejounte has a good career and rings at some point. His formative years were with us and I consider him a Spur for life.

    Watched the interview and a bit of a summary or important points

    1. STarted of with DJ talking about his family and proceeded to the trade. Sounds like it was a mutual descison for the trade. SPurs going rebuild and DJ wanted to win/
    2. Sj being Sk, brought up the same ole line on how the spurs system isn't for everyone (even tho it changes) and holds people back. brought up Kawhi,himself and dejounte on how the system held them back. Dj agreed but the question kinda of stopped there.
    3. On that notes, SJ also brought up a good amount of postives about the spurs; on how they develop, build charatcer and basketball IQ
    4. Alot of dicussion regarding Dejounte's past and family hitory
    First 30 mins of the interview. More coming up

    Part 2;
    1. Good amount of dicussion on his past issues (Again), and how it effected his draft. Talked about how the Fed were invovled, asking people close to him.
    2. mentioned someone spread some rumors or whatever around, and DJ beieves that they tried to ruin him.
    3. Mentioned that Spurs were having a discussion to moveup to draft him if he was not available.
    4. Discussion of getting drafted by the spurs;
    5. Growing up, knew that the spurs wer boring (no question) but repsected there history and what they've done
    6. Mentioned that Pop, Manu, and TP didn't talk to him at first.Mostly was with Kawhi, Green and JSims
    7. Than went into the small twitter clip we all saw.
    8.Brought up Tp, Sjak went on a good rampage calling Tp the most selfish players he played with. (lol. Like dude cheated on Eva)
    8. Brought up Manu, Suprising SJ likes him, and considered him to be one of the better teammated. Dejounte mentioned the same.
    9. Discussed the Injury, and mentions how he will allways apprecioate the Orgainzation for that.
    10. Brought up White, and how after that playoff series, he beleived that spurs were dicussing on who to start. Mentioned that he wasn't yes-man and white could potentially have been. Belived that pop sided with white over him.
    11. Discussed the so call mind-games that Pop plays. Mostly Sj talked about this.

    Final Thoughts;
    Really wasn't as bad as but people are assuming it was.
    Tp got destroyed, SJ has good amount in there about Tp. Seems like Tp got zone on.
    Mentioned a bit of pop; mostly the White thing. I don't really know the back story, but White always took the back seat to both Dejounte and Demar.
    Nothing bad spoken about the spurs and there developed. actually mentioned a few postives.
    Overall the e came from that Twitter clip.

    That is all folks, nothing oveally bad was said, besied Tp, which at this point shouldn't be a suprise

    It looks like the spurs made the right decision trading DJ. I can’t believe a player that got drafted with 29th pick brought three first round picks in return.

    Why doesn’t SJ just invite TP on the podcast and they can have it out.

    I mean I get irrational confidence, but TP would’ve been a good player on any team in the NBA. SJ was never an all star player and a 37 year old Jackson was objectively worse than Manu and Danny Green.

    I think Murray disses on the Spurs a little more bc SJ is there. I mean every other team passed on him but the Spurs and I guess he wanted them to make him a star right away, but he sucked as a rookie. They did the right thing on his development and clearly it worked for him. And they paid him a great contract when he had just tore an ACL and White was playing better. Spurs showed him some loyalty but I mean it’s a business for everyone at the end of the day and players treat it the same way too. They may not make the trades but they force them a lot.

    Nothing said seems particularly aggravating. He comes from a very troubled background, he clearly has some personal issues that show up every now and then, but I suppose it's about as little as you could expect from someone with his background. His partnership with the Spurs paid off for both parties, and it was in mutual interest to part ways. I wish DJ a good career elsewhere, once the Hawks burst into flames and we land one lottery pick after another.

    Not that controversial dunno why this is blowing up. Him asking for a trade his rookie year and Rich Paul telling him he has no value is a good tidbit though. We have a similar prospect in Wes.
