New Year’s resolutions for each of the San Antonio Spurs

It’s that time of year.

NBA: Houston Rockets at San Antonio Spurs Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Today is the last day of the year; the traditional time to make resolutions. Personally, I located my list. There were eight resolutions. I met none of them. In my defense, COVID-19 restricted me from three of them. And of the five remaining, I have made significant strides on reducing my social media. Three involved writing. I will carry them into the new year. The last involves staying on top of the dishes in my house, which — let’s just say — who am I kidding? But I digress.

For the San Antonio Spurs, I am sure each member of the team is capable of determining his own needs in the coming year. But for the sake of argument, let’s say they asked for our help.

Coming up with resolutions for sixteen players shouldn’t be hard, or is it?

If the season had yet to start, it would be a no-brainer to suggest that DeMar DeRozan should shoot more threes, or defer to the younger teammates and take over in the fourth quarter, or play stronger defense. Yet, here we sit the day before the ball drops in Times Square, and DeMar is way ahead of us.

If there was an untapped resolution the Compton star should make is to not take the bad calls so personally. He earned himself a technical in New Orleans earlier this week that painted the team into a corner and earned their first loss of the season.

For Derrick White, simply get better. We need you out there.

And the same goes for Quinndary Weatherspoon.

With the shortened season and novel coronavirus continually wreaking havoc both locally and internationally, the team that wins it all this season will, among other things, need to remain healthy for a hundred-plus games.

Have at it, Pounders, and have fun with it. What do our dear Spurs need heading into 2021?
