NBA GMs pick Spurs to Repeat

By Daniel Strickland on October 25, 2005.

Did someone say “Spurs dynasty?”

The San Antonio Spurs are overwhelming favorites to repeat as NBA champions, according to an survey of the league’s general managers.

The Spurs received 77 percent of the vote among the approximately 25 GMs who responded. That percentage is the highest a team has received in the four years the survey has been conducted. The defending champions got 96 percent of the vote to win the Western Conference and 100 percent to win the Southwest Division.

Miami also was a unanimous pick to win the Southeast. Results were posted beginning Tuesday on

San Antonio star Tim Duncan got more than 78 percent of the votes as the league’s top power forward and is the favorite to win another MVP award. Other popular choices among the league GMs were Miami’s Shaquille O’Neal, who got 84 percent as the top center, and Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki (77 percent) as the league’s top international player.

    Eh, I liked being the underdog better. The underdog gets the satisfaction of making so many people eat their words and kiss his hairy canine ass. But if we win this year, everyone will just say that with all our talent and experience, we were supposed to win.

    In fact, as Pop has said, winning an NBA championship is an incredible challenge, and even for a great team the stars (and David Stern) have to align to make it happen. There’s a lot of competition out there this year. A lot can happen in the next seven months.

    But I like our chances.

    You might want to make sure you spell your smack talk right, there, Funk. When you’re yelling in playa’s faces on the court, it doesn’t matter, but this is nerd territory.
