This spurs team can play some defence, but don't get them confused with past Spurs teams. They are much more offensive with a faster tempo and don't play defence nearly as well.
However this a down year/years in the NBA, the dominant terams arn't very dominant, OKC is 5-5 barely beat T-wolves, Lakers are full of guys that get significant minutes named worldpeace,roberts and some other black guy I can't remember his name. Celtics are over the hill and Miami has two guys that drive the lane and nobody that can shoot 3pointers, also Bulls MVP is struggling and they are having problems on offense.
So I would say Spurs are a huge contender for the title especially with HOME COURT throughout the western conference, 3 point shots go down a lot easier @ home.
