The playoffs are drawing near and as we know, this is the time where Coach Popovich usually rests the big three in way of the playoffs. If you are a Spurs fan than you know that this happens every single year. Does it bug you? Well for me, this is the reason why he is well respected in the league and many players want to play for Coach Pop. He does not care about the seedings, whom they are projected to play whether they are number one, number two, number three, so on and so forth. This team is built for a championship run and to all the players on the Spurs team, having the best record in the NBA through the season does not matter if they do not bring home their fifth title.
