1. 2005 - very versatile, still with big men (Rasho, Nazr) to guard Shaq
2. 2006 - big 3 probably closest to their respective primes but this is when Pop fell in love with small ball (Mavs series).
3. 2007 - big 3 still close to their primes but role players getting too old/slow
4. 1999 - Twin Towers
5. 2004 - too bad .4 happened

1. 2004-05
2. 1998-99
3. 2006-07
4. 2003-04
4. 2002-03 or 2005-06 or 2007-08, couldn't decide.

Actually, while 2005 Spurs won it all against the better competition; in 1998-99 season, after first 14 games the Spurs record was 46-7 including the playoffs.

The 2005 Spurs team was perfection. They could run you out of the building with Parker and Ginobili or slow it down and play the inside game with Prime Duncan. They had shooters galore (Ginobili, Horry, Barry, Bowen) to space the floor for Duncan to operate in the post and also open up driving lanes for Ginobili and Parker in the half court. Their defense was always good, if not great with Duncan as their anchor in the paint along with help from Nazr Mohammed and their perimeter shut down guy in Bruce Bowen.

2002-2003 was their most balanced/complete team IMO.

Explain. The 2003 Spurs weren't really a complete team to me. They relied on Duncan for far too much offensively. Parker was still wet behind the ears. Ginobili was still green. And if that '03 Spurs team had gone up against a team like the 2005 Pistons in the Finals instead of that crap Nets team they would have most likely lost in 6 games or less.

4. 2002-03
5. 2005-06

Top 2 is pretty close, IMO. I give 06 season the edge over 03-04 because they seemed to be a more resilient team in the playoffs vs 04. Also, the domination of the regular season shouldn't go unnoticed. Duncan was hurt both these seasons, which probably effected their chances of repeating.

Last year was pretty impressive until they just lost it half way through the Thunder series.

IMO, 03 was their weakest championship team. Duncan was a beast, but Parker, SJax and Manu were far too inconsistent. This team would often give up huge leads in the 4th quarter (just mentally not strong). Except for Duncan, no one was in their prime - the team was made up of players with veteran experience who were old (DRob, Kerr, Kevin Willis, Ferry) OR young and inexperienced (TP, SJax, Manu, Speedy Claxton, Devin Brown) players.
