Things don't add up. Either the personnel is lacking or the coach is failing. It really is that simple. And don't say it's a system thing, that is such crap. Who is new to the system, the Spurs grandeur system that is more riddled than the holy grail? Who is so new to the system that they are so out of position, always compromising the team defense? Danny Green is new but to my eye he contributes much more than he sucks the life out of--all phases, offense, defense, rebounding. Kawhi is new but while his jump shot comes and goes like something that comes and goes a lot, his defense is stanch. All the other regulars have enough corporate knowledge so it shouldn't be a damn system thing.
So I find it funny sometimes, like not funny haha, but funny like curious, makes me suck my teeth and ponder a bit, when all areas of the Spurs roster is complemented so, yet the Spurs defense remains bad for the season. Not even average, just bad. And Pop is the best coach in the league, right?
So which is it? Place your blame. Why is the Spurs (save a few games) defense so bad? Is it a personnel thing, a coaching thing? A mixture of both? Let's have it out in the rain, kids.
