Ah yes, another odd year. Don't worry, in time, this thread will be renamed the "**OFFICIAL** SAN ANTONIO SPURS THREAD"
Well, Duncan held the team together while Parker and Ginobli were out and now they are back and scoring 110+ points. Aside from the Duncan and Ginobli, they are fairly young and you gotta love the rookie, George Hill. At 6'2" solid guard with very long arms who is playing very solid defense: Another nice pick by the Spurs.
However, it really isn't the odd year motivation that has gotten the Spurs the championships. The reason why they have won Championships in odd years is because those are the years when they have had an above average Center who can consistently hit the 5-10 footer and play solid defense. Unfortunately, they don't really have that this year and that is one key reason why it probably won't go there way.
However, you never know what could happen because you don't count a defensive team out.
I will be back from time to time.
