Practice makes you better. I am sure that everyone that has played any type of sports have heard that saying before, no matter how successful you may be, there is always room for improvement. For the San Antonio Spurs, making it to another NBA Finals appearance this past season could be something that any team would be happy to get to that spot, but not winning it, would make you want to get in the gym again.
Las Vegas Summer League, the San Antonio Spurs were looking at for being their spot to continue to become perfect. It is not a time to just relax, because it is the off-season. It is time to get better.
The Spurs obviously didn’t play any of their big-minute players, but used their slate of Summer League games to come away with a better idea of which players could stick on the roster for 2013-14 and beyond.
Not expected to go undefeated in the summer leauge, the Spurs fared well still, finishing with a 3-2 record. Maybe not a record that sticks out as being something to talk about but you have to remembered that these teams are thrown together for a few weeks and have to go out and perform well. This summer league I was looking forward to seeing what current players, Corey Joseph, Nando De Colo, Aaron Baynes, as well as the newest Spurs DeShaun Thomas could do.
I will now take you guys through what I saw from this years summer league season for the San Antonio Spurs.
