SAN ANTONIO SPURS

CHANCES OF WINNING TITLE: 8%

Cohen’s Analysis: The Spurs were literally seconds away last year from their fifth NBA title in franchise history. Unless they avenge it this season, it’s likely they will have regret and be haunted by that unimaginable Game 6 loss to the Heat.

When will age and inevitable deterioration finally catch up to this team? We know Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are all at least somewhat diminished from what they were the last time they won the title in 2007 (yes, Duncan and Parker are still elite players). The supporting cast, which includes the up-and-coming Kawhi Leonard and a first-class set of reserves that understand their roles, must duplicate their performance from the playoffs last season if they want any chance at repeating as West champs.
