Duncan and the Spurs probably have another few good years left in them.

Analysis:
In the regular season San Antonio attempted to catch up with their fellow Texans, the Dallas Mavericks, in order to gain the No. 1 seed in the playoffs. They may have not snatched the first seed but it is the Mavericks who watched the NBA Finals from home. San Antonio swept Cleveland in the 2007 NBA Finals after defeating the Nuggets, Suns and Jazz. Throughout the regular season San Antonio achieved balanced scoring with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili averaging 20, 18.6 and 16.5 points per game respectively. The team’s opponents averaged 90.9 points per game, the lowest opponents’ average in the league. The Spurs also led the league with the largest gap between average points scored per game and average points allowed with a difference of 8.4 points. This year’s Spurs team consisted of veteran players who demonstrated an unparalleled comfort with each others style of play and stretched San Antonio's dynasty to four titles in nine years.

From The Media:
"While the team has been on the road during the playoffs, Spurs officials have used their hotel rooms as a base of operations to watch film of players. "You have to be a little creative on how you cover it," [Assistant General Manager Sam] Presti said. "But you have to keep a big-picture perspective on not just here in the present but also on the impact those decisions and responsibilities in Orlando can have on the organization long-term.”
