    Not that crazy when they show themselves semi-competent at the beginning of the year at full strangth and win some games and then players are pulled for every single game thereafter.

    These guys haven't fielded a full team a single game since I can remember after that fast start.

    What does this say...

    They got some guys that can win some games right now.
    Take away one, or two of the mains?
    Disaster.

    So that's where they sit.

    Full team, they can do things. Win some.
    Take away from that and then we get what we got.
    Injuries are part of the game.

    Yeah, but...
    You think the Spurs injury reports recently are entirely truthful?
    Every single game two, or three guys are out and this is a young team and it's a rotation of players.

    Good question. I hope they are strategic injuries. That tells me PATFO have a plan back to winning basketball.

    Well... you have been paying attention to how they've tended to the injury line, yes?
    It tells a tale.

    I’m not sure dude. One thing PATFO does well is protect their players. They could have rested DJ down the stretch last year but they didn’t. I think Keldon and Vassell have actually been banged up versus strategically tanking but it is more likely a bit of both.

    To be sure:
    Nothing can be definitively taken from the amount of evideence we're given.

    And there were some here saying that Spurs are fine and didn't need to tank for a lottery talent...

    Y'all know who y'all are.

    Its not about winning the lottery, its about winning the lottery the right year. It would have been pointless to win the lottery last year. There was no clear franchise anchor.

    Just a Snapple fact about this current losing streak of 8 games. 8 or more loses in a row has only happened 8 times for the Spurs. Those seasons led to the Spurs drafting the following players:

    Duncan - HOF - 5 les - 15x Allstar - picked 1st
    Robinson - HOF - 2 les - 10x Allstar - picked 1st
    Elliott - 1 le - 2x Allstar - picked 3rd
    Robertson - 4x Allstar - picked 7th
    (Reggie) Johnson - traded after a season and a half - lasted 7 seasons total - picked 15th
    Vassell - ??? - picked 11th

    This was a tough one, but we managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and add another loss to the total! OKC was no match for our ability to lose a winnable game. 9 and counting! Third longest streak in team history!

    Oh.yeah!

    If we can drop the upcoming game to Houston, we could jump into the #3 spot.

    yeah, every time that I think the Spurs are going to take the #1 seed in the tank tourney, the rockets say "hold my beer".

    Jakob has a bone bruise, which means he’ll be out for a while. That pretty much means that the restricted area is a turnstile. They’d have to not drive to not score at the rim.

    Detroit won a game, and dropped from 1st to 3rd. It’s a razor thin margin.

    Appears Popped has gotten over himself and has embraced the tank?

    10 in a row. Tied for the second longest streak in team history. This one was pretty much decided in the third quarter.

    Next milestone: 13 losses in a row way back in the 89 season. Go Spurs Go!

    Are the bottom 4 Lottery (4 with most losses) all at an even 14% chance?
