The San Antonio Spurs have made some big improvements during the offseason and let’s just say the power forward spot looks mighty stronger. With the 19-year veteran Tim Duncan playing like he has not aged one bit to Boris Diaw who can spot players from a mile away, the Spurs have taken time this year to gather more bigs to help them down low.

LaMarcus Aldridge and David West are big time power forwards who can connect on mid-range shots and both bring some strength to the table. They even have the young buck in Cady Lalanne who can learn from each power forward and provide some size, block shots, and grab rebounds.

Overall, things are looking bright for the Spurs and they have once again managed to provide more talent to their already stacked team. At this point, anything is needed for this organization in order to win ball games during this upcoming 82 game season. We all know that the season will be a long on which means Greg Popovich will always find ways to rest his players the right way, in hopes that they are ready for big games down the stretch and postseason.

Let’s see what this season brings as the Spurs continue to focus on playing as a team and facing many terrific opponents, particularly in the West. This year the Spurs mean business and many teams will soon see how tough they really are. They will see what lies ahead of them, as they go against the five-time champions who always find a way to finish strong at the end.

The Spurs season kicks off on the road against a difficult Oklahoma City Thunder team on October 28th.
