The Spurs have become the odds-on favorites to win the NBA title, according to Vegas, and for good reason. The last time San Antonio lost a game was on April 11th, more than five weeks ago. As the Spurs look to continue their postseason dominance, here's the latest out of San Antonio:
- The "whispered belief in Spurs circles" is that Tim Duncan will likely re-sign with the team on a multiyear contract this offseason, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com. Duncan has called his health "unbelievable" and said it's been four or five years since he felt this good.
- General manager R.C. Buford talks to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports about how the Spurs got swept up in an NBA "arms race" three years ago, and how the organization learned from that mistake.
- Boris Diaw has been a crucial addition for this Spurs team, says Buck Harvey of the San Antonio Express-News. Diaw signed with the Spurs in March after being bought out by the Bobcats.
