Right now, the 4 teams I would place as the favorites to win it all are the Heat, Pacers, Grizz, and Spurs. OKC would obviously be on that list if they still had Westbrook.
some people here think losing in a WCF against a talented OKC team makes spurs look like scrubs.
I have no idea why these guys even watch playoffs other than the finals.

So because they haven't won since 2007, that means they aren't a contender? What does that say about the Warriors who hadn't won ONE playoff series since 2007?

No, the Spurs are not the same team they were in the 2000's. but the talk of them being a regular season team is total BS. Their playoff record over the last two years so far is 16-6. Tell me again how they're not legitimate contenders?

I think ppl are right - Spurs are really just a regular season team.

In 2013, they are tied 2-2 with an inexperienced Warriors team missing their all-star PF in the WCSF...and there is a possibility they will lose that series.

And yet the Spurs are still the almighty Spurs of the 2000s? **** that. They are not contenders, they cannot beat the Heat. Duncan is one of the most consistent players ever and top ten ever, but he is not the franchise force he was back in the day. Tony Parker is NOT "the best PG in the game". Manu is good, but obviously not the athletic specimen he was 10 years ago. Their bench is good, though not amazing. And their coach? Maybe we've been just a bit too complimentary...I still think he's top ten ever but I'd say Tom Thibodeau has been better in these current playoffs.

Oh, and please do not bring up the regular season. Its irrelevant.
The Mavs won a championship 2 years ago. So are they contenders?

The spurs are easy to hate on. People act like it is better to be bad in the regular season and eventually lose than look like possible champs during the season and eventually lose in the playoffs. Its pretty stupid

Spurs will always be contenders as long as Tim, Manu, Parker and Pop stick around. But Manu should think about retiring soon. Injuries have caught up to him.

The Spurs don't seem to play "smart" as they used to, and the defense is severely lacking. Getting rid of Cap'n Jack was a mistake, imo.

They're certainly contenders, but at the top level? No.
