    Now I would like to see the epic explosion on Spurstalk if both were sent to the G-League and Primo was Forbes's back up and barely got minutes.

    The loss to the lakers was MAINLY because spurs players were all gassed and had their tongues hanging out

    yet pop refused to either call timeouts to let them catch their breath

    OR

    allow primo and jock to get some run to rest the starters


    all this on a LOTTERY TEAM?


    gtfo defending pops bull


    he talked about no one ever getting tired or getting too many points because EVERYONE would get to play

    but as soon as he THOUGHT they were in a tight winnable game
    He reverted to his old tired 7 man playoff-type rotation

    but there is no manu, timmy or tony to play those crucial minutes

    so why in da were those scrubs all being force-fed minutes while fresh players on the bench sat and watched the TIRED OLD LAKERS- out hustle the young overplayed scrubs?

    Pop has never, ever, ever, ever run a 7 man rotation. That’s a D’Antoni thing. Nine guys played double digit minutes. Not sure what game you watched.

    Are you crazy!?! Forbes does not need to get more minutes. Have you watched the last 4 games?

    I know some here are defending it but Its just silly that Pop is treating a lottery pick like a late 2nd rounder or walk on.

    If he was talented enough to pick then he is talented enough to play in the NBA. Unless he's not...

    I'm mean, I wonder how every top rookie in NBA history ever managed to play their rookie season.

    He should be getting minutes in SA and not in Austin.


    Just not going to waste time griping about Pop or whatever.

    In all likelihood all Primo has to do is perform really well in the G league and he'll be back with the main squad in a couple weeks.

    Everyone is crying for Primo, understandably, but really, it's Tre Jones who the team may need most in the short term. Our only true point guard and a solid defender who played well in Summer League, showing progress. But where does he get 8 minutes a night? All of Forbes 4 and a few from White and Murray. I could see that.

    No Hank I am not. The problem is the Murray, White and Lonnie are getting wore out cause they are playing so hard. Like I said they need someone to spell them but the reserves suck. Except maybe Primo could help. But I guess not. Maybe Jones can step up.

    maybe tre jones has improved a little -

    tre jones took three years to even get to "scrub" level

    Lol. The first game isnt until November 5th. There are only like 7 games in all of November. They are only playing like 48 or 50 games this season that ends in early April.

    So to be clear, they're not even sending him there for the kind of game action he would have gotten in the past. He's going there for practice..."we talkin bout practice." lmao.

    the 12th overall pick is going to Austin for ing practice with a bunch of non NBA level talent.

    pop.

    It's his second year. And he played better than Primo in Summer League from what I saw. Primo has a higher ceiling, yes, but it's ok to go to the G League for a short stint. If it's all season long, sure, I'll likely be annoyed. But if the Spurs are exciting and playing well, and Vassel and Walker and playing well consistently as we move forward, I'm not going to obsess and cry about it.

    figuring out stuff is fine

    unless part of that "stuff" is whether or not Bryn Forbes has any value and should be on the roster. that should already have been known

    This is not a knock on Primo, as I'm on record for saying Pop is ing up by sending Josh to Austin, but for those of us that were high on Sengun, behold:

    It's not like Primo has to play either the entire G-League season or none at all. If he looks like a man among boys down there, even at his age, the Spurs can call him up at any time.

    They dont play their 1st game for another week. Meanwhile everyone drafted in his range is playing.

    Stop defending this. Its beyond indefensible.

    Damn. I was Sengun or bust. I'm liking Primo, but drafting Sengun and not wasting time on Zac Collins would have been a good what if.
