San Antonio Spurs Tickets
A new NBA season is starting and San Antonio Spurs tickets are the new sheriff in the west. After a couple of disappointing seasons leaving fans a lot to be desired, the Spurs used their longer-than-usual offseason wisely and are packing a lot of heat in this condensed 2014 season. Sure, Texas has a nice group of NBA teams with the Houston Rockets ready to launch and the champion Dallas Mavericks aiming for another title. But the San Antonio Spurs are a long-standing staple of Texas professional basketball and this team is aiming to reclaim their spot at the top of the Southwestern Division, and possibly the Western Conference.
The San Antonio Spurs aren’t the flashiest team in the NBA by any stretch of the imagination but they may once again be the bets team in the NBA. While other NBA franchise put fans in the seats with high flying dunks and fancy footwork the Spurs disdain theHollywoodstyle and keep cranking out NBA Championships. LeBron James, as good as he is, couldn’t rise above the Spurs teamwork ethic in the NBA Finals. Like a machine, San Antonio Spurs tickets just keep chugging along. The only thing missing is consecutive titles, somethingSan Antoniois looking to correct this season.
The Spurs Keep the Pieces in Place
The scariest thing about San Antoniois that they don’t seem to lose players. Most etams deal with the fallout from an NBA Championship, losing key members of the team to hype, ego, and huge contract demands. The Spurs have avoided that this year and everyone still seems to be happy. Manu Ginobili will be back at guard, contributing double digit numbers and playing defense with an aggravating sting. Tim Duncan could hardly be playing any better. His relief at having more talent around is obvious and he’s content to be part of a team and not the focal point of opposing defenses. Tony Parker has emerged as a force to be reckoned with, giving teams fits with his attacking drives to the basket and a nice three-point shot.
The surrounding cast of Fabricio Oberto, Bruce Bowen, and Robert Horry may be unsung but each contributes to the Spurs success in his own way. Playing the ultimate team game givesSan Antoniothe edge on flashier squads. Spurs ticket holders will do without the flash if they can watch their team land another NBA title.
Is it an advantage or disadvantage to be in the Southwest Division? The regular season is brutal, with games against Dallas and the Rockets. Somehow though, you have to suspect that dealing with the best teams in the NBA all year gives you something extra in the playoffs. It’s certainly doesn’t seem to hurt San Antonio. Whether or not the Spurs end up on top of the Southwest they’ll be in the hunt when the dust settles in the Western Conference.
