Spurs out of contengent???
 
Spurs seems to be getting worse... with up and coming teams like Celtics, Hornets, Bulls... would they fall out in 1st round next year? or worse still miss the playoffs???!!!

This has to be one of the dumbest questions ever. With a nucleus of Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili the spurs are always going to be contenders in the west.

Was that a pun? They are still a top 5 title contender. They have arguably the best big 3 in the league and the most under-rated coach. Jackie Butler would be a nice signing if NY doesn't match the offer sheet, but I don't know about the Elson offer. Granted it's a short deal, so they could get out of it. I wish they would sign and trade for Al Harrington who would play the 4 and move Duncan over to his natural 5 to give them the more modernized look they want. Harrington wants to play with a winner and they could find a third team to involve in the deal. I doubt it will happen with Indiana and Golden State pushing hard for his services. I also wish they would offer Luis Scola a contract, who is most likely playing overseas next year. The Spurs will be fine, and will have their big 3 rested, healthy, and ready to go next year. They are still a serious title contender.

Yeah, some teams are improving, but they got a long ways to go before they hit Spurs status. And the Spurs aren't getting worse. Their role players change from year to year, but their core remains the same. And they're not exactly old... Duncan's what? 30? Ginobli's 28 and Parker just turned 24. When the jazz were peaking in the mid to late 90's, Malone and Stockton were around 37. I compare them to the Jazz cuz both teams are under coaches who coach very cerebral games. Even if the Spurs' core gets older and less athletic, their smarts will continue to beat the opponents. Barring any injuries or trades, I'd say the Spurs have another 5 good years in em.

What drugged up world do you live in? Last time I checked TD was a dominant force, Tony Parker was an All-Star, Ginobli was an excellent player, and Bruce Bowen was a lock-down defender.

first of all celtics and bulls are in the east, so they have no impact on if the spurs make the playoffs or not.

and this is how i see the west

dallas
phx
spurs
rockets
etc.

bhing182 08-01-2006 07:58 AM

ya but i think the mavs are going to do better now because they proved to themselves that they can win the west...it seemed like that was all they needed to do was prove it to themselves

Spurs are still a top 4 team in the league. There is now way that they will lose in the first round let alone miss the playoffs. I thought that everybody knew that but apperantly not.

Wow.... I wouldn't be that optimistic.

But if Yao and Mac' are healthy anything can happen', agree.

BTW: Clippers could be very hot to handle this year.

STATfan32 08-03-2006 11:40 PM

yeah with duncan, parker, and ginobili the spurs will always be a contender, even tho i hate them (suns fan) when they play us, but the tables are turning........

Rapsfan4life 08-04-2006 03:20 PM

as long as the Spurs keep the Big 3 and add role players, they will be always in good shape come playoff time.
