Yes. They didn't look good last year compared to the year before. So I think they're definitely going to be beatable.

They were also coming off 3 long playoff runs and I think that had something to do with it. This year they will be more rested.

While that is true I don't buy that at all. Still think Spurs are the team to beat in the west unless if this is finally the year Duncan falls off (doubt it).

Easily... their health being the number one factor

Considering the age of their roster, health will be an issue.

GS is the team to beat until proven otherwise. They have their core all in their prime, depth, coaching, and now the knowledge of how to make it through 82 games and win a championship.

The Sixers obviously. Or did you forget they have prime Duncan, Dream, Garnett, and Reggie Miller all on the same team?

Yes. Of course. Difficult to judge when we don't really know what people's rosters are going to look like yet.

But I would say GSW, OKC, Houston and maybe the Clips and Cavs will be able to do it.

Like I say though. Still too early.

Of course the Spurs can be beat. They look very formidable but so do other teams. We'll see how it plays out when the games start.

Plenty of teams can beat them. Biggest thing is healthy though. I'm sure the minutes will be monitored as usual.

How bout the team that won the most regular season games? Cruised through the playoffs? Won the Finals? And had the league MVP and best player in the world? WARRIORS ARE THE FAVORITES AND A POTENTIAL DYNASTY.

Health is an issue with anyone of course. But really, SA has had injuries the past few years and it's been Kawhi/Green/Splitter/Parker... Duncan has been (knock on wood) healthy and Manu is Manu (no word on him returning yet) Younger guys seem to be the one getting hurt

I don't think SA's age has them any more concerned about injuries than any other team tbh.

heathly they are the best team. TP's health has been an issue for some time though.

Man if Cavs and Spurs again meet in the finals, it will be 4th finals between LeBron vs Duncan. Best rivalry since Magic-Bird?

If this is finally the year that age hits them, then they can be beat, but until we find that out, the west is between 4 teams, in this order

1) GSW
2) Spurs
3) Rockets
4) OKC

I think there is a pretty substantial separation now between the top 4 and the rest with all of the off-season moves

Couldn't agree more. I don't see how signing a 30 year old to an aging roster suddenly catapults the Spurs. Now their core minus Kawhi is a year older with more mileage.

Can anyone beat the Spurs? look man acquiring Aldridge isn't even enough for them to topple Golden State, so this thread definitely sounds like someone hates hard on Lebron James and the Cavs.

All I can say is the 2012-2013 lakers/nets, 2003-2004 lakers, 2010-2011 heat, all star studded teams that didn't win so it is not some gurentee that the Spurs win but they have a great shot

Duncan, Parker, and Manu are all breaking down ... healthy they will be tough ... not likely to be healthy.

Lolololol

These dudes haven't even played a game yet and people are already asking if they can win it all, stay healthy, the favorites etc.

The Warriors are the team to beat.
OKC is going to 100%
Clippers beat us in The 1st Round.
And you have Cavs, Bulls, Heat (Healthy Heat squad) in The East.

Calm down people it's not June yet.

Duncan hasn't been injured at all, w/ his mins managed and how he plays, barring some freak injury he should be ok. (if you watch him, very rarely does he jump or get off the ground much, by design)

Manu hasn't decided whether he's coming back or not. But he's not really relied on much.

Parker, he's been sub-par the last couple years, but Mills has come in and provided the spark and offensive punch necessary (Parker played poorly in the finals and vs OKC in the last couple games last WCF)

I guess the point is, they aren't relied on as heavily as previous years, but even if they (TP/Manu) aren't healthy, it'd be no different than their runs from 2012-2014, all of which had at least a WCF appearance

Ha, seriously... Let them play and finish piecing together the roster!

They likely improved, but as we've seen, titles aren't won in July. Big FA additions don't always = a title.

I guess we can't be an under the radar team no more man lol We will have all eyes on us out West, I can see it now if we go 10-11 and people will be saying omg we're too old, LMA is a bum, Pop needs to retire and Kawhi is overrated lmao. If anything we know it's going to be growing pains to start off the season and we have to be healthy just like every other team.

They're stronger, sure. Losing Splitter and Bellinelli hurts, but Aldridge is gonna be that guy when Manu, Parker and Duncan can't get over the hump in a big game.

07-05-2015, 03:44 AM
"Can they be beat?!" is obviously just a stupid trolly post, but whether or not they're favorites makes for some real talk. I'd argue they're the fourth best team on paper, but I'm pretty damn interested to see LMA in that rotation.

What's their main rotation going to look like? What about when they go small ball?

Aldridge's game does look like it fits in perfectly with the Spurs.... almost seems unfair to add a star like him to an already winning franchise. Duncan should consider sticking around for more than 1 year....this team's going to be good for many more years. I wonder if the Spurs are going to try to add 1 more rim protector or some role player to make this an even more dangerous team. It's Spurs, Warriors.... not sure how OKC looks when they come back, but they should be right there... and of course the Cavs in the east. The other teams need to add some more to compete with the big 4.
