    But do y'all think Pop is trying to tank, or is it happening inadvertently?
    It’s happening because the front office purposely loaded this roster with bad and/or inexperienced players. Pop don’t need to try to do anything.

    I'm going to be baffled if they don't make trades before deadline.

    Tank looking good

    Just a top 4 pick would go a long way to injecting talent into this roster tbh. The Thompson twins don't have the same potential as Wemby/Scoot but they could be All-NBA caliber.

    When they was 5-2 I had the brilliant take that they were a hungry, high energy, well-coached team that would win 40 games.

    They proceeded to go 1-14 after. It just stinks that the Rockets, Pistons, and Magic are blatantly tanking for that 14% slot. Spurs may never get into that tier.

    Yeah, don't get me wrong I am sure we both will go crazy to get the first pick and even second pick but for me I would be VERY happy with anyone in the top 4. Anyone we get even 3 to 4 in the draft will be our best player easily so yeah tank away because we are what are record says we are........We Need Talent ...

    Right now the Rockets have the same amount of losses as us but 1 fewer win. The Pistons and Magic also have 5 wins. We still have plenty of time for them to leapfrog us.

    It would be Diaw, not TP. Wemby switched teams this summer.
    Babac is now in the French team coaching' staff, so Tony is the best way to get intel about Wemby, apart from calling Collet directly, who coaches Boulogne-Levallois and is also the Fench national team's coach.

    Whatever the situation is in France, how does that affect the NBA lottery?

    Wemby could pull a Kobe, forced his way from Charlotte to LAL, and force his way out of somewhere to SA.

    You don't really know him, just like no one here really knew Primo.

    A player who would force his way to SA? The first thing to do with such a player would be send him for a long talk with a psychologist (after locking a chas y belt on him.)

    I’m French and I follow his career in his club and in the national team. I read a lot of interviews of him and everybody agreed on the idea that he’s a nice and clever kid. Honestly, when you look at the hype surrounding him, if he was a bag we’d already know… You can’t compare him to Primo who was a nobody before the Spurs surprisingly drafted him that high, he wasn’t prepared to the pressure which fell on him after that.

    He seems like a good kid to me too, but I'm just pointing out that reading interviews with athletes doesn't exactly give you a deep and personal insight into their character. Of course they're going to say the right things, just as one does at a job interview. There were literally hundreds of tweets, instagram posts, interviews, and compliments posted here about Primo, and nobody suspected prior to a month ago that he had serious issues... Everybody "agreed" that Primo had high character and an "uncanny" maturity. Our second hand knowledge of athlete heroes is fundamentally unreliable, unless you're in their inner circle.

    LOL, a generational talent isn’t going to “force his way to SA”. Our best hope is that he doesn’t mind playing in SA, but actively hoping a player will force his way here is a pipe dream.
