Today I will talk to you about the Spurs. In the post-GDP era, the Spurs are still the team that has been looked down upon every season, but will surprise you. After all, they still have Popovich. Old man Qi, it was the same last season. It was once suspected that he would fall out of the playoffs, but with a wave of 8-game winning streak at the end of the season, he has stabilized his position, and the Spurs will have nothing in the short term. Big changes will not make you a contender for the championship. After all, Los Angeles is too strong, so let's put aside the championship and see the team. Now, during the Las Vegas Summer League, many first and second grades The rookies are all performing here. The Duke Gemini we are most concerned about, a summer league due to injury, a steady iron has not yet reached expectations, and the Spurs have a boy with weird hair who has played a brilliant performance.
He is Lonnie Walker selected by the Spurs in 2018. Walker did not play too many games last season because of injuries. Due to illness, he played only 17 games. In these 17 games, he averaged less than 7 minutes of playing time. He could get 2.6 points, 1 rebound and 0.5 assists. 9 of these 17 games played only 4 games. -5 minutes without a score, except that Walker's playing time is more than 10 minutesThere are a total of three games. In these 4 games, the highest score is 16 points, the worst is 0-for-10. Overall, this rookie gave a talented but unsuitable feeling in the first rookie season. After all, there were only 17 games. In the game, the base number is relatively small and there is no reference point, but one thing that can be seen is that the Spurs are now training him.
Leave aside the meaningless 1 of last seasonWith 7 games, the Casino Summer League is in full swing. In fact, it doesn’t matter who wins this game. The key is to let the first and second year rookies start the game, so that they can gradually adapt to the NBA rhythm of the game. Let’s see if there are any outstanding draft picks worthy of being scouted by the team. According to the editor’s observation, Lonnie Walker’s second-year player is clearly above all other players, and is better than this year’s popular rookie. The performance is much better. As of July 9th, the Spurs have participated in 6 games, almost every day, and Walker played in 4 games, the performance is very impressive.
- In the first game, Walker started in 29 minutes and scored 8 of 12 and scored 20 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists;
- In the second game, Walker played 29 minutes, 17 of 7 and scored 19 Points 8 rebounds;
- Walker played 24 games in the third game11 of 17 minutes, 28 points and 2 rebounds;
- In the fourth game, Walker played 31 minutes of 23 minutes and scored 32 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks.
From the perspective of these four games, his score Each time is the team’s highest score, it can be said to be an absolute core figure. Walker’s style of play has appeared in dry pull jumpers,Three-pointers, breakthrough layups, defensive efforts, and even small hooks. As a shooting guard, it can be said that his performance as a second-year rookie in this league is the "volute" here. Point, and the desire to score is very strong, and the defense is also active. This is what other Summer United players do not have. So the Spurs next season may not be that strong team, but it will definitely give you a surprise. And Walker is like this. The realization of the Spurs is likely to take over Bandrozan, coupled with the "little Manu" Shamanic chosen this year, the Spurs have a bright future.
So the editor is looking forward to being in Popovich In the last few years of his coaching career, what kind of player can "walker" Lonnie Walker grow into? Especially in this era when strikers are concentrated and shooting guards are scarce, if Walker can bring the performance of Summer United into the next This season of NBA, then you must not ignore this and this Lonnie Walker, at least the editor is very optimistic about him, after all, the Spurs production, must be a boutique.
