Playing 25 minutes a night is a minor role? Okay.
I guess he played a smaller role, but you're right. Looking at stats, he was a bit of a factor offensively (not much), and he was still a defensive anchor. Maybe SA will be hurt by this.Playing 25 minutes a night is a minor role? Okay.
I don't buy the Aldridge/Gasol frontline working out well defensively. Parker and Ginobili are a year older and imo, due for the injuries they had often in earlier years.
In short, they're very vulnerable imo and need to go for the ****ing kill.
Maybe on the court, but TD's influence on the Spurs goes way beyond that. He sets the standards for effort, execution, and professionalism. He's going to be missed and the Spurs might take a step back.
