I dislike how the media isn’t giving the San Antonio Spurs the credit they deserve for having the best record in the NBA.
The San Antonio Spurs are 59-16 this season with 7 games remaining and they are currently on a 19 game winning streak.
The Spurs 19 game winning streak is not only the longest this NBA season, but the longest in San Antonio Spurs’ history.
The media is more focused on how old the Spurs are and how they don’t have enough energy to compete with the other elite teams in the NBA.
The question that is always asked to the media is, can the San Antonio Spurs win the 2014 NBA championship and win a seven game series against teams such as the Thunder, Heat, Pacers, and Clippers?
ESPN analyst Skip Bayless says that the San Antonio Spurs will not win the 2014 NBA championship because they are too old and they can’t compete with the fast tempo teams.
The San Antonio Spurs have the best record in the NBA and the media is still considering them as the underdog to win the NBA championship.
I feel that the San Antonio Spurs are being disrespected because they are consistently one of the best teams in the NBA every season.
If the Heat, Pacers, Thunder, or Clippers had the best record in the NBA, they would be the favorite to win the NBA championship this season since they all have superstars on their teams.
The media should start giving the San Antonio Spurs the credit they deserve because they are playing the best basketball out of every team in the NBA right now and they are going into the playoffs strong.
