Well, Tony Parker has played for the Spurs long enough to know the drill by this point.
How about that!
This might actually be a good game to rest Kawhi as well. The Pelicans, much like the Grizzlies, have been bit by the injury tarantula this season. The New Orleans game could be another for bench players to get more experience under their belts.
I am glad Crawford got help for the problems he was going through, and hope he is able to enjoy his retirement in peace.
The NBA season is like a giant game of Ninja Warrior. It just so happens, the Spurs have the most chiseled, experienced, and savvy contestant, who has won the game before. What I am trying to say is... I am glad we have Pop on our side.
