Why It's MVP or Bust for Kawhi and the Spurs

San Antonio Spurs Preview

Projected Record: 49-33
Projected Playoff Seed: 4th

With all of the off season movement, one aspect has been lost in the mix. The San Antonio Spurs have stagnated. While Gregg Poppovich is known for doing the most with the least, it would be difficult to see him doing the same this upcoming season. On the surface, the clear losses this offseason were Johnathan Simmons And Dwyane Dedmon, two impactful energy players on both ends. Simmons was an athletic two-way wing who served as a backup and a partner to Kawhi Leonard depending on the situation. Dedmon was mainly a defensive anchor and rim protector for a team that was not exactly strong in these areas. At the moment, they are left with Pau Gasol and LaMarcus Aldridge as the inside presence, which is not a favorable lineup. These were big losses that the Spurs did not do enough to cover, and that was the largest issue.

The replacements were not enough. On paper, adding Rudy Gay to this team seems like a perfect Jonathan Simmons replacement. That theory loses weight when one remembers that Rudy Gay is a 30 year old player who suffered a Grade 3 Achilles tear, the same suffered by a 34 year old Kobe Bryant who never returned to being the player he was before the tear. The same injury caused the retirement of Isiah Thomas at age 32. Rudy Gay will play next season, but history shows the effects of the injury will more than likely be detrimental. The injury concerns do not end there with a 35 year old Tony Parker being out until January or February with a torn quad. That along with Manu Ginobli and LaMarcus Aldridge both showing major regression last year is a recipe for disaster.

The only way the Spurs can still have a great season is if Kawhi Leonard leads an MVP campaign, leading a depleted team to large amounts of success. This is something Kawhi is fully capable of, and is what is needed out of him from his team. With Parker out, he will have to take on more playmaking than regular, and without Simmons or Dedmon, more defense will be required than what he played this past season. All of this tied in with his regularly efficient scoring. More likely than anything, if the Spurs win 55 games or more this coming season, Kawhi Leonard should be the MVP favorite.

Trump is going after 2 Republican senators - President Donald Trump, a Republican, publicly attacked two GOP senators in a series of tweets Thursday morning. "Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He's toxic!" Trump tweeted, taking a shot at the junior Arizona senator. Flake is up for reelection in 2018 and is considered one of the more vulnerable GOP senators in the next election cycle. He recently re...

Not Eclipsed Yet -- Fort Collins, Colorado
Your streams are about to be inundated with eclipse photos, so I thought I'd post a non-eclipse sun photo for some preemptive contrast. :) I even caught a few sun spots in this one, which you can also see via NASA's sunspot website:

https://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/sunspots/
https://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/data/synoptic/sunspots_earth/mdi_sunspots.jpg

Each of these "little" sun spots is larger than our Earth, for scale (!!).

Cheers, and enjoy the coming eclipse, for those of you in North America...
