There has been much debate over who is the team of the decade. Recently Mark Stein of ESPN ranked the Spurs as the team of the decade. His reasoning?
ESPN: It’s not an easy trick to pick the Spurs here after they lost four of their five playoff showdowns with the Lakers in the 2000’s … but we’re doing it anyway.
Now, despite being a Lakers website, I want to hear your thoughts Lakers Nation!
Here are some things to think about…
- Lakers won 4 titles
- Spurs won 3
- We beat them 4 out of 5 times in the playoffs
- We defended a title, successfully, twice (including a 3-peat)
- Spurs never won back-2-back
