San Antonio Spurs: The "Old Guys" Show They Have Gas Left in the Tank

The San Antonio Spurs have been in the playoffs every single season since 1997.

They are one of the best and most consistent teams in the league, making the playoffs 13 straight years, which happens to be the longest streak in the league today. In those 13 seasons, San Antonio has won four NBA titles and established themselves as one of the best teams in the league.

Good enough to make the playoffs, but not good enough to win another NBA title, the critics say.

They are too old and don't have the stars or firepower to compete with the rising teams of the league, this according to basketball experts. The Spurs aren't better than the Nuggets, or the Lakers, or the Hornets, or Mavericks or the Thunder, and if the Trailblazers could stay healthy, most experts would argue that the Spurs aren't better than the Blazers either.

This hasn't been the argument just for this season, but ever since they last won an NBA title in 2007. They've been knocked out of the playoffs badly the last three seasons by the Lakers in 2008 (4-1) , Mavericks in 2009 (4-1) and were swept by the Suns last season in the opening round of the playoffs.
