Fromal’s Record Projection: 55-27 The Bet: Avoid but don’t ever bet against the San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs feel more vulnerable than they’ve been in quite some time.
Tony Parker and Rudy Gay are both working their way back from significant injuries, while Pau Gasol and Manu Ginobili re-signed to get an opportunity to continue their battles from Father Time at exactly the same uniforms.
With LaMarcus Aldridge moving further away from stardom, Kawhi Leonard is the lone participant who appreciates authentic celestial standing, and he doesn’t really have the luxury of an excessive amount of depth him around.
Sure, the opening quintet of Dejounte Murray, Leonard, Danny Green, Aldridge and Gasol is a person. Nevertheless, the primary backups–while Gay and Parker are rehabbing, at the least –are Patty Mills,” Ginobili, Kyle Anderson, Davis Bertans and Joffrey Lauvergne.
That’s not especially inspiring. Not by Spurs standards, at least.
But one figure is. Since Adam Spinella noted for NBA Math, head coach Gregg Popovich is one continuous reason for optimism, even as the dynasty seems like it is about the decline:
“In lieu of this certainty, we will watch anxiously as Pop attempts prove us wrong and make those subtle changes to his roster. We’ll hope for one run of fantastic basketball from an unbelievably secure franchise. We’ll look to see how this group of offense-first big guys and over-the-hill cast members constructs yet another top-ranked defense.”
Never bet against Popovich: just don’t.
