3.) This young Spurs team is maturing

Amid all the recent blowout losses, it can be hard to remember where San Antonio stands among contending teams. Fans understandably want immediate results from the Spurs, especially after the excitement of drafting Wembanyama with the hopes of him being the savior of their favorite franchise. However, this rebuild is in its early stages, and it will take time to see the fruits of their labor.

Gregg Popovich has earned a reputation for being willing to make bold moves when necessary. With the team continuing to struggle and lose games, there are rumors that significant changes may be on the horizon. The 74-year-old head coach expressed dissatisfaction in the youngsters after their embarassing loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night, and it is clear nobody is happy with the ongoing losing streak.

The Silver and Black have run into a rough patch as of late, but there are countless ways for this inexperienced team to improve as the season wears on. Popovich could make changes to the lineup or the front office could pull the trigger on a trade closer to the deadline. Though it may be tough to see the positives right now, with a few adjustments, San Antonio can get back on track.
