Ever wonder why they use an offensive scheme that maximizes their strengths?
I dont think poppovich's offensive scheme maximizes anyone's strengths. I think its just a solid system that they are capable of executing because of their offensive talent. thats all.
as for him being up since he became head coach he's had one year w/o tim duncan. the year david robinson was injured and they stunk to high heaven. he gets two great big men and he's good again, he has the best player in basketball and he wins. but lots of coaches can do that.
