By accepting a gradual change to a more modern style of play, San Antonio Spurs are showing an impressive new face.
Any empire will eventually die. However, in some ways, the San Antonio Spurs persisted.
They are the team with the longest series of seasons in the Playoffs so far, not absent in the postseason at any time in the last 22 years.
However, the truth has come to teachers and coach Gregg Popovich this season: Spurs’ play is obsolete.
In the Regular Season, San Antonio Spurs has the most number of 2-point (average and close-to-basketball) phases of the tournament. They haven’t really opened up to the 3-point results and prioritize slowing down the pace of the match.
This is in stark contrast to what NBA basketball currently has, a fast-paced basketball that prioritizes long-throw shots and rotates the formation around defenders or bigman with a diverse skill pack. .
But that was just the story of the Regular Season before the season was postponed.
Now, San Antonio Spurs in Orlando is showing a completely different face. They have changed, changed the play style and got out of the old shadow, taking advantage of human weaknesses to bring new gameplay into the current team.
Thanks to this change, San Antonio Spurs not only revived in Orlando, they also laid the foundation for the future, when their young talents were mature enough to continue the tradition of one of the durable collectives.
In this short tape surgery, let’s look at the positive changes that coach Gregg Popovich brought to San Antonio Spurs, the team that is causing a lot of surprises in the past few days.
After 60 games of hesitation, Coach Popovich finally recommended the three young players Dejounte Murray, Derrick White and Lonnie Walker IV to become pillars.
He forced the three names to compete together and create a connection between them. And from here, one of the first keys to change the way Spurs plays is to increase the tempo of the match.
