Someone’s been busy! This post is something I would very much like produced for every single NBA team in existence. So if we could get on that? I would appreciate it.
There are so many things to appreciate about the Spurs’ approach, but in the end, what Pop always says rings true. They got lucky with Duncan. And before that, they got lucky with Robinson. I’m not saying they weren’t smart for taking those guys or that the brilliant work of Buford and Popovich’s masterful coaching weren’t why they won their championships, but it really strikes you in this post the difference those two players had and how it just takes one guy to take you from the dregs to the top.
Unless you’re Memphis. In which case you would select cow patty in a sunflower field.
