These three San Antonio Spurs have the most to prove in Orlando
When the San Antonio Spurs do finally take the court in Orlando in late July they’re going to be one of the teams in the field of 22 with the most to prove. Because of their underwhelming performance this year many have called this the end of one of the greatest runs in modern sports. It’ll be up to the Spurs to prove them wrong.
San Antonio has been running through season after season, tallying 50 wins like clockwork, and making the season so consistently that it’s become the norm to see them in the postseason. Seeing them struggle so much this year has been hard for the fans to watch and it’s surely been just as difficult for the players to go through.
It won’t be easy for the Spurs to find their way back to the playoffs. They’re facing an uphill battle and without LaMarcus Aldrdige it’s going to be incredibly difficult for the Spurs to get through their murderer’s row of a schedule.
It’s not just the Spurs who have something to prove. There are plenty of guys on the team who came up short this year and could use these final eight games of the season to wrap things up on a positive note and try to ride that momentum into the 2020-21 season. Some of them have potential contract extensions riding on their performance in Florida.
Here are the three San Antonio Spurs with the most to prove when the team takes the court in Orlando.
