    Andy, thanks for reading. I think some of your comment points to what I was working on–you pointed out those individual abilities and ended with the organization bit. All teams–including Spurs–do have a team system. Otherwise, they’d all just run about. I was trying to point out that rather than just calling the tiki taka boring, there might be more in the fans’ complaint. Namely that counter-intutively, the system being bigger than the player might irk them. Again, appreciate the read and response.
