4. San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs never seem to go away. Tim Duncan always knows how to adjust his game to play at a high level, and  Tony Parker is in his prime. Also, Manu Ginobili is maddening, but sometimes the madness just works.

Yet, it’s not necessarily the “Big Three” that deserves the attention.

In the 2013 Finals, Kawhi Leonard averaged 14.6 points, 11.1 rebounds and two steals, while locking LeBron James down as well as anybody else in the league. Danny Green averaged 14.0 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.0 steal, 1.6 blocks and nearly four three-pointers per game.

As the Duncan-era comes to a close, the Spurs have an incredibly bright future ahead of them. Parker is only 31 years old and has a few years before his body betrays him. With a Hall of Fame-bound point guard in Parker and talented young players like Leonard, Green and Tiago Splitter, the Spurs should not be counted out in the coming years.
