David Robinson says that the Spurs recent culture is "unusual"
David Robinson still thinks that the Spurs are having a great season despite it being a tad strange.
The San Antonio Spurs have certainly had their fair share of issues this season.
Kawhi Leonard has missed the majority of the season with a quadriceps injury and several other players have missed significant time. Spurs legend David Robinson joined ESPN's "First Take" on Monday and was asked about this year's culture when it comes to the organization. Robinson did admit it has been an unusual year, but it also may be Gregg Popovich's best coaching job.
Robinson adds that the Spurs have done a great job adjusting to the changing culture of today's players. He also compliments the regime for keeping the status quo over the last 25 years and views it as "unprecedented." Robinson mentions that Tim Duncan had a quiet personality, but his leadership style eventually game out.
Players like LaMarcus Aldridge and Leonard do have quiet demeanors, but Robinson does respect what Aldridge is doing on the court. He hopes that Aldridge is able to find himself as a leader and become an even bigger asset to the organization.
The Spurs have had a great year considering all that they have had to deal with in terms of injuries. There's very few players that have missed multiple games on the year. The team did get Pau Gasol back in the lineup on Saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
