How does San Antonio do it?
Solid Core of three players, smart draft picks, great player development, smart veteran pickups, depth, chemistry, three-ball, slashers, rebounds, blocking out, solid defense. Boston could have been the same way if Danny Ainge hadn't squandered the great team that he had assembled in '08. He did put together one of the best teams that I have seen in the last 15 years back in '11 then traded away half the team at the trading deadline. Boston has the assets to be the next San Antonio Spurs. Which leads me to the sad question: Why in the heck should the Boston Celtics be emulating the San Antonio Spurs? The Celtics should be the model franchise.
