Are Spurs fans afraid of rebuilding?

It's an 800 pound gorilla but really just a big monkey.
We like monkeys don't we? 0.o


The last 12 years have been good for the city of San Antonio. The city won all four of its championships during this period. After the earliest exit from the playoffs in years, it's clear that the glory days of the Spurs are gone. That being said, most Spurs fans (myself included) believe that as long as there is a Spur wearing # 21 on the floor, we have a chance at a championship. But lets just say our time is up, for now, are we ready to accept that fact or will we always expect rings come June? How bout it guys? How will you feel when that time comes?

The Spurs have been the team of the decade, we all know that. However, a lot of that success came from team chemistry and "corporate knowledge" which was completely torn apart when the trade was made for Richard Jefferson. But I'm not here to pass blame on anyone, even though it hasn't turned out how we hoped. So even though everyone is still preaching patience we have to realize that this isn't the same Spurs team we're used to. I think next year is the last chance we have at winning a championship but whether it's next year or the year after we have to know that time is coming. We will at some point have to rebuild. It is the 800 pound gorilla in the room, no one wants to admit it's there.

It's not all bad though. Anyone who follows the Spurs knows that they have a bunch of spectacular young players on the roster and overseas. Not to mention the legendary front office that the team has with an uncanny ability to find needles in that haystack of an NBA Draft. Think of Tony (He's only 27), George, Blair, And Splitter as guys who will be headlining that roster. Add any other players we might find in the draft and I think that team has a good chance of going far in this league. Especially since hackers, as my sister calls them, like Kobe and Dirk will be a step slower. 

So are we still afraid of that gorilla?
