4. San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs are the New England Patriots of the NBA. Tim Duncan is their Tom Brady. Gregg Popovich is their Bill Belichick. The Spurs are a perennial Western Conference contender and, much like the Patriots, they win it all every few years. Unlike New England, San Antonio doesn’t seem to get the credit they deserve. With 5 NBA championships since 1999, it’s time for everyone to admit the Spurs are a model franchise.
