At some point even the most stubborn of coaches (Pop) has to stop living in a state of denial about Manu and his ability to stay healthy and stop trying to pretend that he's what he was 5 years ago.

If Pop had spent time creating a new 2nd unit LEADER the Spurs wouldn't be in this mess, instead he consistently sits and waits and then when Manu gets hurt AGAIN and the 2nd unit grinds to a halt because they don't have a leader who is actually on the floor a significant amount of time, he seems to grouse about the situation.

If Pop doesn't spend the rest of the season turning over the 2nd unit to SOMEONE and develop a true 6th man, then the Spurs aren't going past the 2nd round.
