San Antonio Spurs are the 2013 NBA Champions GUARANTEED
 
I'm making a really BOLD prediction here.

My reasons:

-SAS is really well oiled machine from front office to the coaching staff to the Starting five.

2013 NBA MVP will be given to LBJ despite SAS having the best record. As Parker will be runner up, SAS will be motivated big time to go after FMVP as Duncan is on his last leg. Sorta like, "Lets equal LAL's 5 rings in modern times by winning our 5th ring."


SAS road is less challenging as it'll give them plenty of rest. LAL are out of the way & weak this yr. LAC will be manhandled come post-season. OKC are the only challenge but Westbrook & Harden-less OKC will make sure SAS close them out in 6. GSW will be avoided as they may lock in 3rd seat.

MIA vs SAS in NBA Finals.

I also GUARANTEE SAS will close out MIA 4-2 if not 4-3 as they will have "home court" throughout.

Why such statements.

I just feel MIA are goofing around too much. LBJ & wade are having unbelievably easy time beating teams in the East. too much "smiling", "giggling" not good as MIA wont be enough battle tested like last year. IND, only team that will give them trouble. CHI is still weak without Rose. NYK will win 1 game at most.


SAS will expose MIA in NBA finals as Parker will win FMVP & LBJ season MVP.

Miami has a better record against the west than the east.

My bold predictions:
- Parker tears his ACL, out for season
- Ginobili's balding gets out of control, suffers mid-life crisis
- Duncan retires before playoffs, spends more time managing his custom car shop
- Popovich's head explodes

It's the same thing every year, they look like the team to beat in the regular season, grab the best or 2nd best record, then get tossed by a younger more athletic team.

Unfortunately, I agree. Last year was a prime example. Memphis outlasted an aging team. As much as I would like to see the West win this year, I don't think the Spurs will be the team to make there. I also hope that OKC doesn't make it to the Finals again (if Miami makes it) the Thunder just can't beat Miami.. Lebron got into Durants head..

Well, they have better depth now. Really though, Duncan is old, Manu is washed up and other than Parker, no one is that great of a player. Even Parker is just a scorer and can't involve anyone but himself.

They would have to play good defense at some point to win a title. The Spurs can't play defense anymore. I don't see them beating a team like the Heat, if they got that far.

Spurs are 3rd in Defensive Rating and 4th in Defensive Efficiency. Duncan is #5 in defensive rebounds/game and #3 in blocks/game (2.7 blks in 29.4 mins). Now your last statement I agree with.
