The San Antonio Spurs are coming off of a championship season. Although teams like the Cleveland Cavaliers are getting a bunch of hype this offseason, the Spurs should still enter the season as the best team in the NBA. Tony Parker will be a big reason for that, and he is also a big reason why San Antonio is set for the future.
According to NBA.com, Parker has signed an extension with the team.
Parker is coming off of another productive season. He put up 16.7 points per game and 5.7 assists per game. Both were a little under his career averages, but Parker still remains one of the best point guards in the game.
Although players like Tim Duncan could be playing in their last season in 2014-15, Parker sill has a lot left in the tank. He has been in the league for quite some time now, but he is only 32.
Parker’s numbers declined this past season, but that is no reason for the Spurs to be worried. After all, his playing time did go down a little bit.
The East may be getting better, but the West remains the best conference in the NBA. Although LeBron James going to Cleveland and the Chicago Bulls doing some work this offseason will help, the West will stay the best conference.
With San Antonio bringing back basically everyone, it really doesn’t matter how good the East gets because the Spurs seem to be set for the future, and a second title in a row is certainly not out of the question.
