Well this year the Spurs are actually healthy and rested going in to the post season. Gary Neal, Danny Green, and Tiago Splitter have improved tremendously. And now they have Kawhi Leonard, Boris Diaw, Patty Mills, and Stephen Jackson. Major upgrades from Richard Jefferson.
Last year it was just the tired and injured big 3 fighting the younthful Grizzlies. Now they're a bloodthirsty gang of wolves.
anyone who has to make this thread HAS NOT SEEN ONE SPURS GAME THIS year
fuqqin noobs up in here
No shit sherlock, I already explained this to another poster:

I sure as shit don't know the difference besides what I briefly saw of the season stats/roster, because I SPECIFICALLY mentioned it in the post. I'm not saying whether or not I think they will get bounced, I have no way of making an informed opinion. I'm not hatin' on the Spurs. I'm just trying to get some insight from people before I watch the playoffs, and I'm just curious to know what people think. I also did forget about Ginobli's injury, and to be fair, you did answer my question, so thanks.
Last year's team was soft. They had Matt Bonner playing major defensive minutes for crying out loud. Now with the addition of some cats who aint scared on the wings, and the addition of Diaw, they can bang, and get out and run with anybody... I got them winning the whole thing.. Rather easily at that. They basically have become the old Suns while playing standard good defense.
The biggest differences this year is that Ginobli plays more effectively with two arms for some reason, and Duncan has finally warmed up to playing on no knees.
Also Stephen Jackson scares opposing teams, whereas Richard Jefferson scared only his coach and teammates. Tiago Splitter looked clueless last year because he literally got thrown into a different league and didn't know the offense at all. Now he does. Kahwi Leonard has a preferable skillset than George Hill. Gary Neal and Dejuan Blair are still young and one year savvier. Danny Green is way better than anyone thought he would be, and their 12th man is an Aborigine who can drop 30 a game when he sees daylight.
And Eva isn't around to distract Tony or Matt Bonner.
Probably the fact that we have phuckign scored 120+ in a multitude of games, with our b team, i don't know /sarcasm. you're just trying to bate an argument with the " herp derp i haven't watched them play" line.
