Good stuff from the Spurs! He's the only one in the playoffs last year that had any remote success defending Duncan, and now they're on the same side. TD is going to tear it up now
I am still liking the Spurs to repeat. Yes, their core players are all still the same and they are getting older. yes, they haven't been doing well lately. Pop is just making sure they're all fresh when it comes time to run down the rest of the west which is going to be tough...
I only see Dallas and LA giving them REAL big troubles.
I'll set a dark horse in the east (kind of) though in the Pistons. They've been quietly eating up the east, and they proved that they can hang with the Big Three in Boston.
