They’re stringing together an unexpectedly amazing regular season, but come Playoff time, can the San Antonio Spurs really go all the way?
Can the Spurs win the Championship this season?

it will be a year late, bulls vs spurs in finals.
Sure, there’s no unbeatable team and they probably don’t wanna see Miami in the Finals but of course they have a chance.
Only if they meet the Bulls in the Finals after somehow making it out of the West.
They can’t a defeat a team like OKC in a series. They can win a game or two, but a series? forget about it.
^thats a good point… i want to know everyones opinion, if the Thunder and the Spurs were to go into a seven game series who would win?
I got Thunder in 6. Harden & Westbrook would be tough for Spurs to matchup with.
Spurs in 5 versus the Thunder. C’mon, Pop would coach circles around Scotty and we know one of those teams will be rested come Playoff time…
How quickly ppl forget the Spurs were #1 seed last year too, and lost in the first round to the Grizzlies. And not only did they lose, but they got stomped on, domilished, and outright dominated in that series. Are they having a better regular season this year? No. Are Duncan, Ginobili and Parker a year younger this year, or a year older? Of course they have no chance in the playoffs.
^How quickly people forget that the Spurs were 2-2 against the Grizzlies that year and are 2-1 against the Thunder this year. And the Spurs are having a better regular season this year; their offensive efficiency is off the charts.
i dnt see them beating memphis in a series.
We’re going to forget Manu was playing injured last year? SA could take OKC in 7. Pop vs Brooks is a HUGE advantage in SA’s favor. Parker could bait Westbrook into a shootout, which would cause all sorts of rifts between Russ and Brooks.
SA is serious this year. Last year, they were not. Pop knew last year they had to just win as much in the regular season as they could and try and cruise off of confidence because the team was not healthy, and they had no depth in the front-court. This year is different.
