If they keep winning and wind up surprising someone in the playoffs, I think they will.

True. I actually don't think Pop's style would work as long with too many other teams in the league. Besides Timmy, Parker & those guys naturally having the type of personality that's more conducive to his brand of coaching, the market helps too. There was no real "identity" or rich tradition to San Antonio Spurs basketball that Pop had to fit into, he's creating that now. I liken it to Jerry Sloan & Utah during his 90s tenure there. The right mix of player type, market & coaching and you'll see that consistency.

Because I don't play for your ******* approval. I play for my own love and enjoyment of the game. And to win. That's what I play for."
