Fine wine anyone? Just wanted to check. Those two have become synonomous with each other and there is no better representation of that then the San Antonion Spurs- America’s team to hate.
I say that because unlike the Dallas Cowboys who have underachieved, or the Bronx Bombers who disappoint, the Spurs- yeah those Spurs have carved out a niche of consistency. If 4 titles in a decade ( (1999, 2003, 2005, 2007) doesn’t convince you, 2 Hall of Famers does not (Tim Duncan for sure when he is retired, and David Robinson currently already inducted)–maybe their record will: (626-276 from 1999-present); that is a 66% win pct.
Categorized by their beloved coach Greg Popovich as “overlooked because they aren’t sexy enough” the Spurs quietly conduct business as usual. With an NBA leading 50-11 record, they are poised to add to that tradition once again. Blue collar inspired, minus the so-called high flyers its just good old Tim Duncan and his crew of dare I say supporting cast members. When I speak of support, being a clear indication that no one player can do it alone (ever checked Lebron James’ ring collection, how about Kobe’s) see the difference- HELP; not an SOS call just someone to kick the ball out to when your double teamed.
Timmy has enjoyed that his entire career, on the shoulders of players like Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker who are a “Big 3” in their own right. Proof is proof. So the next time the conversation transitions to GREATNESS give credit where credit is due.
