Sure you have some older guys such as David West, Tony Parker, Boris Diaw and Matt Bonner, but they can still play their roles when counted the most. Let’s also be clear that when many people think of the Spurs as being old, they just look at the big three only. It’s crazy how they are considered to be old, but still play better than most players that have cut their playing days short, due to injury or not being the same person they once were in the league.

With Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Danny Green, Patty Mills and the rest of the youngsters on board, will surely adapt to a well put together ball club. Many teams in the league are going extremely young. Take teams like the Milwaukee Bucks and Minnesota Timberwolves for example. Their team is stack with many young guys and early draft picks ready to play the game they grew up watching.

If those teams stick together with the same roster, their chemistry will be very strong and they will all adapt to each other’s style of play. Even back in 2009, the Oklahoma City Thunder had a young team and slowly made their way to the 2012 NBA Finals.

So anything is possible and as the Spurs continue to get younger and even keep some experience guys on the team, they can find themselves in the Finals at least three to four straight years in any given circumstance.
