Someday, the Spurs will be too outdated.
Someday, they’ll succumb to injury.
Today is not that day, and Manu Ginobili smirks at you for believing it might be.
Unconcerned with a year-older core and how the Spurs have never repeated as champs, oddsmakers have bestowed the West’s finest odds upon Gregg Popovich and friends. And why not?
San Antonio appeared fresh throughout the postseason, thanks largely to a maintenance plan that kept every single Spur under half an hour per game throughout the year. Once younger, more athletic teams broke , the well-rested Spurs hit their stride.
Expect them to choose the identical approach this year, if not an even more conservative one. The regular season is no longer a challenge with this bunch, and they established last year that they might essentially give games away without hurting their postseason positioning.
Despite holding veterans from back-to-back matches all season, the Spurs won a league-high 62 competitions.
If something goes awry, maybe they will slide up and win 57 or 58 this season.
San Antonio is the West’s best until proved otherwise.
