Devil Dish

Every season it seems, usually before the “rodeo trip,” the Spurs make you want to write them off.

They’ve been labeled “Over the Hill” for five years.

They sneak up late, and outside of last season, when Manu Ginobli was injured, make a deep run in the postseason.

You can choose to be bitter about some of the circumstances in which they advanced, or accept the fact they’ve been one of the most consistent organizations for a decade period in the free-agency era in sports.

But this season, after splashing in free agency with moves many thought would put them in the contender conversation and after staying relatively healthy, the Spurs are going to have a tough time winning 50 games.

They may miss the playoffs.

As quietly as the Spurs won their four championships, they’re likely to fade away just the same.

Now, count me in as one rooting for the Spurs downfall. And I still hold on to a sliver of doubt that San Antonio, given how many times I’ve been burned, can rise from the grave.

However, the Western Conference is as loaded as it’s ever been.

In fact, I think the Suns have their most-balanced Nash-era team, and could be a first-round out.
