The San Antonio Spurs are not known for drawing attention to themselves with offseason rumors, but they may not be able to avoid it this summer. There are many unanswered questions for the newly crowned champions, and they haven't alluded to any answers in the near future. So that leaves us with these 5 bold predictions for the Spurs' 2014 offseason.

Just when it appears a player is at the end of their career, the Spurs find a way to revive them with their type of basketball. Just as in the case of Boris Diaw, the Spurs will quietly pick up Channing Frye and make him relevant again. His shooting ability and height are perfect tools for Gregg Popovich.

As his future with the Spurs remains up in the air, Kawhi Leonard is going to be the center of attention if he is an unrestricted free agent after next season. The Spurs won't have to worry about that, because they will come to an agreement with the Finals MVP and Leonard will be in San Antonio for years to come.

3. Patty Mills Will Leave

Patty Mills had a breakout year for the Spurs and even flourished on the NBA Finals stage. He may feel like his talent is worthy of a suitable role and not as appreciated in the Alamo City. More money and more playing time for an up-and-coming contender could be very attractive for a player of Mills' caliber.

In a sick twist of irony, the player solely responsible for the moment that motivated a Spurs championship this year will be part of the team next year. Ray Allen had done this before, when he left the Boston Celtics for the Miami Heat, and the Spurs are not above picking up the greatest three-point shooter of all time. Plus, the Heat aren't looking too good right now.

The rumors of possible retirement for Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will be put to rest early in the offseason. The "Big Three" will reunite to fend off the evils of the NBA challengers and protect their rightful spot at the top of league history books. There will be one more year for the dynasty to continue its dominance.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.
