San Antonio Spurs Have 5 Championships – Do They Get A Sixth in 2017
As you may know, I'm a huge fan of basketball. Basketball is the one sport that I can sit down and watch, regardless of who's playing. Around this time - playoffs - every year, I get more excited, as the best teams start dominating, and the less impressive teams are weeded out.
I've always been a huge San Antonio Spurs fan. From the days of the "Twin Towers" - Tim Duncan and David Robinson - I was rooting for the black and silver. I was cheering each time they'd bring a new championship ring home. 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2014. I was watching all of their playoff victories on the edge of my seat.
As time moved on, I watched as David Robinson retired. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili rallied around each other to become known as San Antonio's "Big Three". They continued to dominate.
Players would come and go, hoping to bring a new title home to San Antonio. And sometimes, they would succeed in that quest. Players like Danny Green and Patty Mills were brought in to aid the "Big Three".
And every so often, you'd see a superstar emerge from San Antonio. Most recently, that's been seen in Kawhi Leonard, a young athlete who has now stepped into a dominant leadership role for the Spurs, especially now that the legend, Tim Duncan has retired.
Parker and Ginobili are still in San Antonio, alongside Kawhi Leonard and a host of other Spurs players that are looking for a sixth NBA Championship Title. My question to you is: Do they get it this year, in 2017? Let me know what you think.
