Is the ride over now that Gay and Marco are coming back?

White primarily plays pg and was playing well with them in the lineup. Marco also only missed 1 game.

Def not popovich rested him for the grizzlies game JUST to showcase D White against WestBrook and the OKc thunder. He gave em the sauce and won the game but the thunder roughed him up pretty good. He’s a solid lock ROS

Guessing he is in Pop's doghouse for bad defense or something, anyone watching the game know why White only played 9 minutes?? And he barely played in the first with 1 foul so its not because of foul trouble.

Not watching but was thinking the same thing. Hope he gets the message and comes out blazing after the half.

Spurs got blown out from the opening tip (down 20-4 to start the game), so the reserves probably came in early and probably were the ones that mounted the comeback

Ok so he is def in the doghouse, might finish with 16 minutes and no foul trouble. Really odd Pop went away from White all game.

He is the only starter not playing his normal minutes.

24.3 min for the season,  24 minutes tonight.  Nothing to worry, it is just Pop winning the game with his mastery

Lots of excuses flowing around.

 

He just served the weak sauce tonight. As in on the par with expectations. Players go on hot streaks, it happens. And then they fizzle out. ...And there is one truth in fantasy bball that you can live by: Never trust Popo!

Too many mouths to feed and in the doghouse and the ride is over and time to drop for a hot free agent.

I'm not an owner but to drop this guy after 1 bad game seems like a huge overreaction based on his production the past few weeks...

Spurs tend to rest their old guys and he's starting. Will hold solid value ROS. A must add if he got dumped by some impatient owner.

Gay will be injured on and off all season. White will get hot again.. at the least hold for another full week before doing anything dumb. He has earned a decent leash.

He is a point guard, Gay is a forward.  His minutes and production have nothing to do with Gay.

Really Patty Mills hurt White last night. Pop credited Mills after the game saying the quote below. This is aimed directly at White because he took the hit in the first half playing 8 non foul prone minutes. He got Popped last night like many of us speculated. Hopefully White brings it going forward.  

 

“He was the one guy that started us being more competitive," Pop said. "He got in passing lanes. He was the first guy that wasn't just following them around."

There is a finite amount if usage to go around, so this statement is not entirely true.

His production does. If Gay averages 20 ppg then you can bet anything White is not going to average 15. You are misinformed. 

 

Easy example:

 

He (Curry) is a point guard, Durant is a forward. His (Durants) minutes and production have nothing to do with Curry. 

 

There is your same statement but see how wrong it sounds now? Check Curry numbers when Durant is out and Durant numbers when Curry is out. Look at the difference.

He’s the spurs best defender on all the top threats he faces. He had Doncic to cover and was getting beat, this is honestly attest to how good Luka Doncic really is and earned my respect. But anyway back to D white, he was basically getting burnt and put a bigger defender out there without Dennis Smith . Every spur player had a bad night if u see the box score. Only 1 game should be fine
