5on5 ESPN - San Antonio Spurs winning it all?

1

Surprisingly good article on ESPN....although I must say, I hate this Israel Guttierez guy....The standards for becoming an ESPN analyst are definitely not high I guess....but nonetheless, a lot of great points...enjoy the article guys :) Here's a brief snippet ! 4. A fifth Spurs title in 14 seasons would be ______________. Abbott: Very hard on LeBron. Also on Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, Garnett and all those other players who, because of age or reputation, need this one. Arnovitz: Further validation. Gutierrez: The gold standard for small-market teams everywhere. Stein: Embarrassing for those of us who not only wrote 'em off for the umpteenth time coming into this season but also continue to ignore them. Still can't understand why there's so little chatter out there about Duncan chasing his fifth championship. LeBron's first ring or Kobe's sixth ring is all we talk about. When Duncan's drive for No. 5 is the most likely to happen. Windhorst: Crowning. They won four titles and narrowly lost out on a fifth, but because three of them were between more high-profile Lakers runs, they have not properly earned the attention for what they've accomplished. If they add that fifth one, Duncan, Ginobili and Parker need to be elevated to the same conversations as Magic, Kareem and Worthy, Jordan and Pippen, and Russell, Cousy and Heinsohn.
