This guy, a 7’3″ NBA rookie has quickly become a fan favorite here. Mainly because unlike most tall stiffs, this guy can actually play a bit. He isn’t a key player for San Antonio, but he could potentially give you some minutes in the event of your bigs needing a blow.
Speaking of San Antonio, they are good. One thing about the Spurs, they rarely lose to teams they are supposed to smash. The regular season for the Spurs is just a time period before the playoffs, where you avoid getting hurt. Did you see this chart? Tim Duncan is on a streak of 50-win seasons. I believe it is now 17 in a row, and the only one that isn’t was strike shortened. Duncan is 5th on that list. It kind of speaks for itself. It also speaks for the NBA as in how noncompetitive it really is:

Golden State has been playing extremely well, setting records, but those two teams seem to be on an eventual playoff collision course.
