If all 5 are healthy and at pretty much normal production, with a cast of average backups, does that team have a shot at a title in 2010?

With the Spurs getting older, I guess maybe. But the West is so strong I doubt it, by then there will be big changes and the young teams now will be ready to play serious ball.

I think this would need to happen outside of the team clicking on all cylinders.

Spurs, Tim too old in 2010 (sounds like a campaign poster)
Suns, Nashs knees finanlly give and the team falls apart even though amare is prime
Dallas, broken from dissapointment and dispersed to rebuild.
Denver, AI and Camby too old? Mello, Nene would have to be worse than Williams, Boozer.
Houston, Yao passes his 20 game prime and starts to go down hill?

East
Boston retires and the franchise gets an expansion draft
Same with Miami
Pistons too old, catch em in transition
Cavs pay through the nose for scrubs and can't get out fo the east

The only key Spur up there in age is Bruce Bowen, though

In 2010, Duncan is going to be 34, which is pretty significant if you ask me.

And the surrounding veterans which make this team what it is today such as Finley, Horry, Barry, etc.. aren't getting any younger either. I'm not saying this year will be a collapse for SA, but 3-5 years from now, it won't last.

It might even look the the Jazz' slow decline as Stockton/Malone aged, maybe a little faster cause those 2 really knew how to stretch out a career.
