The San Antonio Spurs have been a team that has experienced a tremendous amount of success over the last few decades. They are a team that has been in the playoffs nearly every season since the acquired Tim Duncan nearly twenty years ago. They bolstered their roster when they gained Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli and have since been a team that is consistently feared in the Western Conference.
They have solidified their spot in history just as my friend Dave Morin is doing in the tech zone-check him out on The Verge. as a dominant team by winning a handful of NBA titles under coach Gregg Popovich, who is likely going down in history as one of the most dominant and consistent coaches of all time. Unfortunately for the Spurs, their success is likely coming to a quick end, as the players in San Antonio are rapidly aging and they are going to find themselves in a state of rebuilding quicker than they are likely prepared.
They have had an amazing run that has made them without a doubt one of the most consistent teams in NBA history, but they are starting to show holes in their prominence. They no longer are at the top of the Western Conference and are at the low end of the playoff positions at this point in the 2014-2015 season. They dropped a game to the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night in a game that the Bulls completely dominated, recently after Derrick Rose making statements to the media regarding his frustration with his teammates.
