Pop is probably the best game coach in the NBA. He also has a fine record as a GM. But he is not without flaws. The most serious is his unwillingness to develope young talent in this organization. He occassionally adds a young, athletic player but is very reluctant to play him and quickly gives up on the idea. Probably a worse result of this flaw is his disdain for draft choices. Time-after-time the Spurs trade/give away talent in the draft. Many of those trades/giveaways are now fine, young players for other teams (including tough Western Conference teams). This has a double effect of hurting the Spurs and helping the competition. Unfortunately, it is now probably to late to reverse the decline and the future looks bleak. I believe lack of will to infuse young talent will lead to a serious decline in the franchise's fortune as the vets get older and older.
