The San Antonio Spurs have seemingly accomplished every feat possible in the past 17 years. After drafting Tim Duncan first-overall in 1997, the Spurs have won five championships, while compiling a win percentage over 70 percent in those games. Even with those impressive accomplishments, San Antonio will soon set their eyes on one more goal the team has yet to achieve, repeating as NBA Champions.
After losing the 2013 NBA Finals in brutal fashion, the Spurs set their eyes on coming back stronger than ever in 2014. San Antonio certainly did that, as the team clinched the No. 1 overall seed in the 2014 NBA Playoffs by three full games. After plowing through the Western Conference, San Antonio dismantled the Miami Heat by a combined 72 points in four wins, the most ever in NBA Finals history.
Undoubtedly, the Spurs left nothing to chance during their run at another ring. San Antonio let few possessions go to waste, as the Spurs did not forget just how close the team was to winning the 2013 NBA Finals. During this run, the NBA became aware of just how challenging it is to disrupt the veteran Spurs when the team is on a mission.
As the upcoming season nears, San Antonio will field nearly the same exact team that won last year’s NBA Finals. Furthermore, the champions will once again renew the intensity and focus the team displayed throughout last season. With this unwavering drive, winning back-to-back NBA Finals is surely a possibility.
