Do you guys think this is officially the end of the Spurs era?

 

How likely is it Manu, Timmy, and or Pop retire?

 

What's next for them?

 

What's next for TP9?

Manu definitely needs to retire, he was absolutely atrocious out there.

Manu will retire.Timmy might. Would not put it against him.  Pop should retire. Obviously he's senile. Tony parker is probably gonna just be stuck on a team with kawhi, green, and maybe a few additions. They wont be horrible but not contenders for a while.

Old news. 

 

Their "era" was over a while ago and it wasn't even that good to begin with.

Do you guys think they can regress enough that our Lakers can actually overtake them?

 

What kind of seeding do you predict from them more or less next season and for us?

 

I know it's still long ways away and a lot of things have to take place to have a more certain outlook & prediction, but for now, what do you more or less expect?

They had it in game 6 but the Heat lucked out. Timmy is 37 going to be 38. Tony will be 30 and Manu just looks washed up. I think it's safe to assume they are done.

They will always build solid teams but they won't ever find a Duncan or a Popovich again.

I expect them to take a step back.  Ginobili is finished.  Parker will still be solid and Duncan will be another year older, but he can still ball with the best of them.

I wonder what Duncan will do. I feel bad for the guy. Once he missed that shot, you could see that look in his face. The guy played amazing and gave it his all at his age. Props to him. Unfortunately the rest of the Spurs big three didn't step up. It's gonna be interesting to see how this all plays out and who will stay there on the team.

Hopefully Duncan comes back. Manu please retire, Father Time is and will remain undefeated. Parker has grown on me, wish him the best regardless!

You should have seen Tim in the press conference looks like he is taken it to heart. No better what he is the greatest PF of all times and he gave it his all in the series.

Gotta' feel to some extent for Danny Green as well. From one extreme to another. Such a high & then such a low.

 

I wonder if they'll ask for more from him and his role in the near future now. Problem is though if they do, I'm not too sure he can do too much more than what he's shown. I don't think he can develop into a guy that can create his own shot well or consistently.

They just made the Finals and were 5 seconds away from winning the whole thing.

 

It's like every other off-season. People and teams will overlook the Spurs and they will come right back with another surprising season.  As long as Duncan and Popovich are there the Spurs will be a factor.  Duncan had a rebirth this season and Parker evolved into an even better leader.  And now they have Green, Lenard and other building blocks.

 

I think you're fooling yourself if you think the Spurs will fade into the void any time soon.

They got lucky this year. For the last 3-4 years they had stellar regular seasons only to choke in the playoffs.

They faced a depleted Lakers team that would have took them 6 or 7 games with everyone healthy.

Not to mention avoiding the Thunder. At full strength, they don't get past OKC and if they do its going to be a grueling 6 or 7 games.

They'll be a homecourt team next year.

Duncan will play out the last 2 years of his contract according to his post game presser, he will be back.

Manu is likely done. With the emergence of Neal, Green and Leanord they don't really need him.

They need a backup point guard for Parker and a backup big man for Duncan who is more consistent than whoever is there currently.
