The NBA season has reached a point for Spurs fans where most of the excitement has faded. There is still a lot to look forward to down the line, but as far as the current year is concerned, it's mostly over. That means relevant stories from the national media pertaining to San Antonio are dying down, and that seems to be a concern for them. With conversations about the future face of the NBA ramping up, the pressure to generate intrigue around younger players may be climbing.

There will be no playoffs for the 210's pro basketball team this year. The Rookie of the Year race is over and Victor Wembanyama will easily be the winner. The Defensive Player of the Year stuff is exciting but the voters are not going to give him that award so as fun as the conversation is, it does not have much weight. The ongoing debate questions if the Spurs will act swiftly to satisfy Victor, preventing him from seeking a trade, but ESPN insider Zach Lowe believes it's a non-issue.

The Spurs have a plan and fans should trust them

San Antonio has always operated from a place of power, not panic. They do not overreact to things, and that is a major reason why the Silver and Black routinely do not go all in at the trade deadline. They are a patient franchise, and they are the same organization that Victor Wembanyama grew up rooting for. He is aware of how they operate, and he has made it clear that he is on board with the long-term plan.

That does not mean the team will slow-roll their hand. They understand who they have on the roster and how good he is. The national media will do well to listen to Zach Lowe, the Spurs, and Victor himself, as it has been made clear that there is no danger in the waters. Let this be the end of the nonsensical comments made weekly about what San Antonio should or shouldn't be doing.
