Fine wine anyone? Just wanted to check. Those two have become synonymous with each other and there is no better representation of that than the San Antonio Spurs championship team – America’s team to hate.
I say that because unlike the Dallas Cowboys who have underachieved or the Bronx Bombers who have disappointed, the Spurs – yeah those Spurs – have carved out a niche of consistency. If four titles in a decade (1999, 2003, 2005, 2007) don’t convince you, two Hall of Famers do 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 the beloved Spurs coach Gregg Popovich as “overlooked because they aren’t sexy enough,” the San Antonio Spurs championship team quietly conducts 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, it’s just good old Hall of Famer Tim Duncan and his crew of, dare I say, supporting cast members – the San Antonio Spurs’ Big 3. 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 you’re double-teamed.
Hall of Famer Tim Duncan has enjoyed that his entire career on the shoulders of players like Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker who make up the San Antonio Spurs’ Big 3 and a “Big 3” in their own right. Proof is proof, and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich wants you to see that. So the next time the conversation transitions to GREATNESS, give credit where credit is due.
