"Watching the struggles teammate Tony Parker experienced during the 2014-15 Spurs season after competing for the French national team in last summer’s Eurobasket tournament, Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard made what he called a very difficult decision to withdraw from competition for a spot on the United States team that will compete in the FIBA World Cup in Spain later this summer."

System

I've always been offended by the complements to the "system" in the Spurs' offense. The only system-like thing I could see are the off-ball screens set for open three-pointers and the multiple on-ball screens meant to free up Parker's mid-range shots. This past season relied more on the creativity of individuals like Diaw and Ginobili. I would argue that the "systemic roles" that the 2nd unit supposedly filled for the starters deviates from any "system" ran through Parker. Here's a video I was watching, (making me angry and wanting to rant), of Diaw being amazing and doing what comes natural.
