In a recent interview on his China trip with former teammate Tony Parker, Ginobili admitted the Spurs isn’t a top tier team. Bit he believes the Spurs with Popovich is still dangerous to face.
The Spurs may have any team and they will always up there. I don’t think they’re favorites. I don’t think they’re one of the top six teams in the league. Maybe eighth.
But you know they will play well. They will be coached well.
And we got Dejounte Murray back from injury this year. With Derrick White much improve, DeRozan always a good player, we got an inside presence with LaMarcus that not many teams had. I think we had a great team.
The Spurs legend had a point on everything. San Antonio isn’t a star power roster to put them on the top. But the Spurs had the depth to compete against everyone.
