The San Antonio Spurs will be the defending NBA champs next season so it goes without saying, the team will have a bullseye painted on their back during the regular season and postseason.
The other 29 NBA teams will be looking to prove they can beat the champs and will be bringing their “A-Game” every night including Boston Celtics’ Rajon Rondo.
Via Sporting News:
“We have to find a way to beat the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs the way both teams are continuing to dominate the last couple of seasons.
“The two or three years we were good, they geared up to beat the Boston Celtics, just like the year before we got up to beat the Detroit Pistons. So it’s a matter of trying to get the right team together to beat the Heat and the Spurs, because they’re the teams to beat.”
Rondo pretty much sums up what the Spurs will be facing next season from other teams.
But before Rajon can even think about beating the Spurs, Boston needs to get back to their glory days soon.
Gone are Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce and in are… well no one really. I mean players like Jeff Green, Brandon Bass, Jared Sullinger, or Kelly Olynyk doesn’t really strike fear in many opposing teams let alone the Spurs.
Boston will get a nice draft pick this Thursday and hopefully add quality free agents in the offseason to surround Rondo, but Boston is quite a way from thinking about joining the ranks of the NBA elite like San Antonio.
