The Spurs flourished during the NBA Restart three months ago behind a significant stylistic shift towards a small-ball-heavy scheme led by four-time All-Star DeMar DeRozan and a drastically altered supporting cast.

With LaMarcus Aldridge, Trey Lyles, Patty Mills, and Bryn Forbes sidelined for the majority of the seeding-games, head coach Gregg Popovich had no choice but to fork over minutes to San Antonio’s talented young core.

Keith Smith of Yahoo! Sports, RealGM, and CelticsBlog joins me to discuss a couple of hypothetical offseason trades to bring LaMarcus to Boston and how his idea for the Walt Disney World became a reality.
