Vegas Over/Under: 54.5
Fromal’s Record Projection: 55-27 The Bet: Prevent but do not ever bet against the San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs feel more vulnerable than they have been in quite some time.
Tony Parker and Rudy Gay are working their way back from major injuries, while Pau Gasol and Manu Ginobili re-signed to get an opportunity to keep their fights against Father Time at exactly the same uniforms.
With LaMarcus Aldridge moving further away from stardom, Kawhi Leonard is the lone player who appreciates authentic celestial standing, and he does not really have the luxury of an excessive amount of depth him around.
Sure, Dejounte Murray, Leonard Danny Green, Aldridge and Gasol’s opening quintet is a person. But 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 particularly inspiring. Not by Spurs standards, at the least.
However 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:
“Despite that certainty, we’ll watch anxiously as Pop attempts prove us wrong and also make those subtle changes to his roster. We’ll hope for one final run of basketball from an incredibly franchise that is secure. We’ll look to see how this team of offense-first big men and over-the-hill cast members constructs another top-ranked defense”
Never bet against Popovich: simply do not.
