Add in coach Popovich who is the best coach in the NBA and one of the all-time greats and the four most important San Antonio pieces are in tact. The fact is that they simply know how to win. This is not a team that will wilt under pressure or shy away from clutch moments, this is a seasoned team that is hungry, which makes them quite dangerous.
Depth: Spurs management has surrounded their big three with the deepest team in the NBA, filled with veteran role players and rising young specialists. Stephen Jackson has been fantastic off the bench since his arrival in San Antonio and adds another great scorer along with Ginobili in the second unit.
