The Spurs are sneaking up on respectability

NBA: San Antonio Spurs at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

In the 52nd episode of the Superfluous Poppycock Podcast, Charlie Thaddeus and I engage in a mid-season review of the Spurs by unpacking the phrase “sneaking up on respectability,” looking at the results of LaMarcus Aldridge spacing the floor, compare Gregg Popovich’s treatment of the press to George Orwell’s 1984, realize that this season is about the future, discuss DeMar DeRozan’s record-breaking streak and how difficult it is to indefinitely play unsustainably well, talk about Dejounte Murray’s game, and parse the merits of my superhero/alter-ego theory concerning Derrick White and Murray. Plus we have some Unnecessary Foolishness: the 21st century’s equivalent of shooting free throws underhanded.

(Bonus discussion: find out what Charlie’s disagreement is with my issue with the dunk Vince Carter had over the French dude in the Olympics)
