John Wayne would be proud
Take ten paces, turn, and shoot...That should be the Spurs motto based on how well they're playing this year. Howdy partners, today as you may have already guessed our post will feature the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs are off to a red hot start this year despite off court distractions. Eva Longoria or not, Tony Parker is playing like a man possessed. Averaging nearly 17 points and 7 assists a game, Parker has paved the way for the 16-3 start the team has gotten off to. The presence of veterans such as Tim Duncan, Richard Jefferson, and Manu Ginobili haven't exactly hurt their case either. This, however, is no team to consider success a stranger. Since the great ABA/NBA merger in 1976 which saw the addition of the Nets, Nuggets, Pacers, and these very Spurs, the franchise has captured 16 division titles, 4 conference titles, and 4 NBA Championships. From their prestigious yet humble beginnings with players such as George "The Iceman" Gervin in the 70's to the Twin Towers era consisting Of Duncan and Robinson nearly 10 years ago, this club has always had a winning attitude. Some considered the teams recent run a dynasty, a claim which is hard to dispute. The club has had 3 NBA MVP awards won by their players, one by David Robinson in '95, and two by Tim Duncan ('02 and '03); Truly a club with a tradition of victory and a success. Could we be on the verge of witnessing the teams 5th championship year? Possibly, they sure do look unstoppable to this point, I know most NBA fans are excited to see how it plays out. If your from San Antonio and you've been a Spurs fan forever, or you just like the team for what they are now, don't be afraid to show your support. The NBA needs some lovin too, so we don't see the realization of the feared lockout next year. Find your Spurs gear at the link posted below. Happy Saturday everyone!
