Devin Vassell: A

Devin Vassell has improved his numbers this season, and his recent performances have convinced fans that he is a necessary part of the team's success.

Vassell has an average of almost 19 points per game, which happens to be the best average of his 4-year career. He has also been averaging 3.7 rebounds and the same number of assists. However, in the last month, his performance has improved significantly, with an average of 4.4 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 21.9 points per game.

This upswing in his performance dictates that if he continues to play at this level, Devin will establish himself as a crucial member of the team and an integral piece in the future of this franchise.

Jeremy Sochan: B

Sochan is a player who won over the hearts of Spurs fans with his charisma and sense of humor. However, at the beginning of this season, the team experimented with using him as a point guard, which caused many to doubt his true potential and his place on the team.

Popovich, the winningest coach in NBA history, realized that Sochan's best position was power forward. As Sochan improved his numbers and found better chemistry with Wemby and the rest of the team, he achieved sufficient numbers to be selected as a replacement for the All-Star Weekend for the Rising Stars Challenge.

On average, Sochan has scored 11.4 points per game, with 6 rebounds and 3.5 assists. The team hopes that Sochan will become a vital member, especially due to his ability to contribute in various ways on the court.
