To read about how the Spurs succeed, see: every single year since 1999 (dawn of the Duncan era). In the 2010s, however, that strategy has changed. Aging stars PF/C Tim Duncan, PG Tony Parker, and SG Manu Ginobili rest in the regular season, then turn it up come playoff time. They are now aided from a variety of sources, SF Kawhi Leonard and SG Danny Green to name a couple. As long as legendary Coach Gregg Popovich keeps working his magic and keeps this superstar-less team firing on all cylinders, defending their title should be no problem for the most consistently dominant team in sports right now.
