The Best is yet to come
Long time no talk! Itís hard to believe weíre already a quarter of the way into the season.
This is the best start weíve had since Iíve been a member of the Spurs, and the best thing is that we are nowhere near the
level we hope to be at in April when we start the playoffs. Some of us are a little banged up right now, but that has been
the case for the past few seasons at about this time. Once we get over this injury hump, we should feel better and continue
to press on. Itís a long season.
I know many fans hoped we would finish 82-0 this season, but that just doesnít happen and itís incredibly hard to be the
team that is always a target because youíve won a championship. It is easy to get hyped up to play the defending champs.
Every night, no matter who we play, the opposition raises their level of play because they are playing the champions.
Everyday that goes by, our team is becoming more and more comfortable with playing Spursí style basketball.
I couldnít be happier with the new additions to our team. Michael, Nick, and Fabricio are meshing well into our system and
will make us that much tougher to beat come playoff time, and they are all just really great guys.
Before I go, Iíd like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday and an even better New Year! I canít believe itís already
December. Itís amazing how quickly time passes. Thanks to everyone who has written in. I always enjoy hearing from
everybody, even if I donít always have time to write back. Still, I look forward to seeing you at the game.
