Someday, the Spurs will probably be too old.
Someday, they’ll succumb to harm.
Now isn’t that day, and Manu Ginobili smirks at you for believing it might be.
Unconcerned with a year-older core and also the fact that the Spurs have never repeated as champs, oddsmakers have bestowed the West’s best odds upon Gregg Popovich and friends. And why not?
San Antonio appeared fresh during the postseason, thanks mostly to a maintenance program that kept each and every Spur under 30 minutes per game throughout the year. When younger, more athletic teams broke , the well-rested Spurs hit their stride.

Despite holding veterans from back-to-back games all season, the Spurs won a league-high 62 competitions.
