No love? I say no problem

I saw a FanShot by Big50 entitled "Spurs get no love". It showed that only 7% of people thought that the Spurs would win the championship next season. I started to get mad at the 93% of fans who didn't pick the Spurs feel bad about my teams chances, but then I came to my senses. So people don't expect us to win. Alright, do they ever? And yet still every single year we're right there with all the contenders. So if we have to go through the season without any love from the fans and the rest of the NBA, then so be it. We like it that way.

Even after all the additions to the roster, and the improvement of our young players, and the fact that Manu is back, and the fact that this season is basically a five team race for the championship, people are doubting the Spurs? Well, silver and black don't exactly stand out. It's funny though that every team forgets about the Spurs, only until it's time to play them. I've heard it countless times before, players always say "You have to bring your best when you play the Spurs" (or something along those lines) So if this is the case, then why is it that so few people believe in our chances? This is definitely fear respect, no doubt. Maybe people think that if they don't think about the Spurs that they would just go away like some kind of bad memory. Well sorry people, dream and wish all you want but when you open your eyes your schedule will still say SPURS!!! on it with an asterisk next to it that says * bring "A" game

So my fellow fans of the NBA, continue to forget about the Spurs (we accept it). Keep pretending we don't exist ( we welcome it). Keep putting us under the radar (that just happens to be how we like it). So have fun dreaming that your schedule somehow doesn't require a trip to San Antonio. If it makes you feel better, you can keep your eyes closed when we play you.
