chalk my spurs up as toast.
kawhi is not likely to return this season. pop says its in his hands but he doesnt see any reason to try to bring him back with so few games left.

2nd round exit here we come.

i expect once hes healed up, things will sound different.
he was cleared to play, but was told he would have to play through sever pain. im expecting pop/kawhi are both being cautious just as they have always been with players. just like holding duncan out of the 2000 play offs.

to extend the life of the player, let them sit regardless of a single game, a single season, or a single title. always looking to the longevity of things. the big picture

You're a lot more optimistic than what's been reported, which is that there is significant tension between Kawhi and his camp, and Popovich and the Spurs brass. There's more going on here than a guy who's hurt and the team wanting to be cautious...

It's a shame. With a healthy, motivated Kawhi, the Spurs would be in the conversation when the talk comes to a Western final.

Funny stat from last night's Rockets' broadcast.

Trevor Ariza returned to the lineup last night.

So they highlighted a stat that said with Ariza in the starting lineup, the Rockets are 31-13. Sounds great. Wait... how many games have they lost all year? 13.



Hopefully Jimmy Butler's injury is not devastating - it did not look good...

Westbrook needs better players around him because Melo and PG are too inconsistent.

Philly are disposing of weaklings like a champion team would, 7 in a row.
