SAN ANTONIO SPURS GREGG POPOVICH:-
According to a report claimed by Mike Finger of the San Antonio Express-News Gregg Popovich will going to travel with Spurs to Orlando on Thursday for NBA restart.
This decision comes after much conjecture surrounding whether or not Popovich will going to travel amid the health concerns due to the ongoing Coronovirus pandemic around the globe. The 71-year-old head coach statistically unsafe to COVID-19 as a member of the senior citizen community, the league are undertaking several provision and measures to ensure the safety of every participant once the NBA resumes.
While Popovich has locked in his plans to man the sidelines for the Spurs, his choice means that he will be staying inside in the Walt Disney World for at least five weeks And it’s quite surprising due to the fact that Spurs negligible shot at qualifying for the postseason without their two superstar players LaMarcus Aldridge and a roster devoid.
Gregg Popovich is the oldest head coach in the federation, with the pace and modern trend of play in basketball Popovich has not been a top priority for PATFO. San Antonio attempted the third-fewest three-pointers over the last half-decade, 7,500 fewer long-distance tries than the trigger-happy Houston Rockets and we can expect that these figures not going to rise anytime soon as long as Popovich will be the head coach of Spurs.
As Popovich being the head coach and the spurs decline clearly shows that he is not the right man for the Spurs job as the Spurs falling behind the curve, he is one of the most experienced people of the game but he hasn’t been handed the easiest of situations after the Kawhi Leonard split. His best defenders aren’t exactly at their top-notch, his best shooters are not at its prime, and his regular scorers are not at their top form.
Keeping all factors in mind, Popovich and his team can’t possibly hope to be into the playoffs without a bit of luck and a change in the strategy of the game. Relying on one-dimensional players and past-their-prime veterans landed the Spurs are heavily relying on their one-dimensional players which lead the Spurs in an uncommanded position in the Western Conference Standings though they have secured league-record 23rd straight trip to the postseason.
San Antonio has eight-game to go and thus gives the Spurs a perfect opportunity to judge Dejounte Murray, Derrick White, Lonnie Walker IV, Jakob Poeltl, Luka Samanic, Keldon Johnson and the rest of their talented youngster with little to no consequence.
Nba will resume after one week, we are going to be excited once NBA will be back in action, Spurs will grace the court for the first time after four months and it would be a treat to watch the game after a long time break due to global Pandemic for Spurs fans.
