    Yes graag use of the jinx thread.

    Also they have had the weekend strength of Schedule and they are the spurs. They are the third team in the West.

    You think their success is more kawee related or pop related?

    I really am excited to see us play the Spurs & the other top NBA teams with CP3 incorporated into the line up. The 1st game of the season we won at GS when he wasn't used to playing with us. Now hat he getting used to us, the Rockets are a entertaining & sometimes boring team to watch.

    Yeah so again, nothing about Kawee.

    You could plug any Pop-esque players in that system, and they'll be fine. His system really takes away that star factor, but also keeps everybody humble. If I was a superstar NBA player, and with my ego just as it is right now, no way would I be able to play for pop.

    The Spurs can destroy average teams with or without kawhi but they wouldn't be able to do anything in the playoffs without him. The real question is will kawhi neuter Rudy Gay when he cometh backeth :eek::eek::eek:

    +4 diffy, so no I'm not concerned about that record. They're a paper tiger for now and I'd love to pound them before Kawhi returns.

    That being said, we'll see what they look like when he gets back.

    The Spurs did what they needed to do which is to hold down the fort until Kawhi got back. Did that plus, playing near the top of the NBA food chain. The contrasting case is OKC who are the 3rd best team in points allowed holding teams to under 100pts in the age of run and gun 3pt shooting yet they're under .500. Coaching and chemistry matter.

    Well, without Kawhi, LMA has basically the chance to be Portland LMA again, that's probably a big reason why they are still able to win a good amount of games, and also, seems like their schedule isn't that hard for now.

    Kawhi is over rated.

    Harden carries his team but always has the “stacked team” or “system player” argument

    Spurs are probably going to struggle a bit when Kawahi gets back to adjust him as being the first option.

    bet Gay and LMA wouldn't be playing at the level they are playing at and Patty Mills should remain the starting PG with Parker coming in off the bench..

    They're better than us until we can get further than them in the playoffs
