It is usually true though...Spurs won last championship when Duncan and Parker were in their prime. They made it to the Finals because Westbrook was injured last year.
Of course, they almost won the Chip but luck favored the Heat. But, it's going to be tough to win the West this year.
It's just my opinion...I believe Pop is the greatest coach of all time and he's a great neutralizer. Maybe, he'll come up with something.
