Is the San Antonio Spurs dynasty really over?
Last year, the San Antonio Spurs failed to make it to the second round of the play offs for the first time since 1999. From 1999 on, the Spurs had won every other National Championship (2001, 2003, 2005, 2007), until this last season. Will San Antonio continue to be a play-offs contender after trading Kurt Thomas, Bruce Bowen, and Fabricio Oberto for Richard Jefferson from the Milwaukee Bucks? How much of a difference will the three newly drafted players—DeJaun Blair, Nando de Colo, and Jack McClinton—make for the aging Spurs?
The dynasty doesn't have to be over, but it is in trouble. Richard Jefferson needs to learn how to play hard again after his exile in Milwaukee. Bad habits are picked up on mediocre teams, whether the player knows it or not. Duncan is getting older while Parker and Ginobli are going to decline quickly with all the pounding they take on the court. Blair was a steal in the second round, but there may be too many new pieces to put into place for the Spurs to halt their slide.
I hope they can continue to play at a high level--they are fun to watch when they're on top of their game. They play basketball the way it should be played.
