NBA Power Rankings: #5 San Antonio Spurs


Spurs Basketball

By: David Kay

In a critical off-season for the Spurs franchise, San Antonio made all the right moves to make sure their recent run of success did not come to a sreetching hault this season.  They should once again be one of the elite teams in the Western Conference and compete for another NBA ring.

2008-09 Season Summary:
The Spurs played up to par last season but it was obvious that their run under the Duncan/Parker/Ginobili era is close to coming to an end. San Antonio won 54 games and took the Southwest Division title but lost for the first time in the opening round of the play-offs since 2000. Duncan’s dominance began to fade and without Ginobili in the post season it was apparent Parker can’t be the number one scoring option on a team that will be a title contender. Roger Mason stepped up to be one of the bright spots of the season as a reliable clutch situation shooter.
