After finishing the last two seasons with the number one seed in the Western Conference, the San Antonio Spurs are back for yet another season in which they are still considered a title contender.
The Spurs are bringing back a team that won 50 games in a lockout season, had three double-digit winning streaks, won 20 games in a row, and were two games away from playing in the NBA Finals.
Though there are a lot of positive qualities to this team, the last part of the sentence above is what still might have some fans wondering if the Spurs should have made some other alternative moves instead of bringing back the same team minus James Anderson, but plus rookie Nando De Colo.
In part 1 of the season preview, I will begin looking at seven of the Spurs’ 14 players on roster.The 14 on roster – Part One
1. Tony Parker – Last season, Parker began to show the transition from attack-first point guard to a balanced attack, as he had a career high in assists (7.7 per game). Parker can still light up the scoreboard as he led the Spurs with 18 points per game, but what will be interesting to watch is his fatigue level considering he played deep into April, had bottle glass thrown in his eye in the summer, and then went on to participate in the Olympics.
With the amount of depth the Spurs have in the backcourt, don’t be surprised to see Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich rest Parker more comfortably this season in order to have his starting point guard ready once again for the playoffs.
