One would think owning the best record in the Western Conference, having what can be arguably the deepest bench in all of the NBA, capturing another 50-win season, and owners of three double-digit winning streaks in a shortened season, the San Antonio Spurs would be the odds-on favorite to win the 2012 NBA title, right?
