Open Thread: The Denver Nuggets were the “Spursiest” team in the postseason.

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports Understated superstars, solid rotation players, and a coach who knows exactly how to handle it all. There’s a reason Spurs fans were rooting for the Denver Nuggets, and it wasn’t just rooting for the underdog. There has been a palpable respect from Pounders since the Spurs fell to the Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs in 2019. The recognition of how good this Denver squad was paired with how young their two top players were (Jamal Murray was twenty-two at the time, Nikola Jokic was twenty-four) showed a promise. That promise took another leap in...

What the Spurs can learn about the center position from the playoffs

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The elite teams still alive in the postseason have a lot to teach the Spurs about how to build a successful center rotation. The importance of the big man in modern NBA basketball has ben debated tirelessly in recent years. While in the past the recipe for success seemed to always include dominant interior presences, rule changes and the advent of analytics have led teams to build around perimeter players. The topic seems settled, as traditional low post scoring centers have lost relevance, but every postseason we are reminded that the big man can still...

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Answering Spurs fans most pressing questions about the first-year forward Luka Samanic was a somewhat unknown commodity when the Spurs selected the six-eleven Croatian forward with the 19th overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft a year ago. After the 19-year-old spent all but three games in the G-League with the Austin Spurs, many fans were left questioning the Spurs’ decision to take such a raw talent so early. We got a glimpse into the future when Luka scored 16 points on the Utah Jazz in the final game of the season for the Silver and Black, but...

With that news we can return to the many questions surrounding how the team can approach things on November 18th. Whom the Spurs pick and any other moves they try to make that night are most certainly your 1A and 1B considerations, but there’s a less pressing and more philosophical one to simmer on both now and after.

Observations from the start of the 2020 NBA Conference Finals

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The Nuggets look overmatched against the Lakers, and rebounding has been key for the Heat and Celtics. In my last post, we ran a poll asking Pounders to tell us who they wanted to win the Western Conference Finals between the Lakers and Nuggets. While the Nuggets knocked the Spurs out of last year’s playoffs, there was little doubt that Spurs fans would be rooting for the Nuggets and against the Lakers in this series. Too many playoffs over too many years, with the Western Conference title often at stake, makes it impossible for Spurs fans to root for the...

Examining Patty Mills’ future with the Spurs

Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports A lot of teams could use Patty Mills, and that list definitely includes the Spurs. As the playoffs rage on, the Spurs are already looking at next season. Among the more interesting choices they will have to make before then is how to solve their surplus of guards. Marco Belinelli and Bryn Forbes will enter free agency and could potentially leave, which would help solve the logjam. If that happens, Patty Mills would become almost essential for a San Antonio team in need of shooting and veteran savvy in the backcourt. Yet the same reasons why Mills is...
