Anyway, I agree with you for some parts. Next season the Spurs will be the team to beat, on the paper. They are now in NBA final and even if I would love to see the NJ win it all, I stay realistic and Spurs will win (4-2).
Moreover beeing well below the SC they will get one or two high caliber players during the off-season. That is a little bit scarry to me. However they will never have a tandem like Shaq&Kobe, they will never have the same calm to win the 4th quarter as the lakers (usualy...) does. But you are right, we have to work a little bit better. Shaq has to return to a human weight, regular season has to be played, Phil will have to give minutes to the young players and Mitch has to bring a good PF in LA. If we do that, then SA will stay the favorite in the paper and we will win it again in the reality
