2. See Young Players Take A Leap

While the Spurs' lone All-Star from last season has departed, we have to remember that he didn't reach that level as a player overnight. It took several years of work, recovery from injuries, and overcoming hardships before Dejounte Murray got to where he is today.

With that being said, there's no reason to think the kind of leap he made last year isn't also waiting to happen for one of the current young stars on the Spurs' roster. After all, Keldon Johnson just had a breakthrough year shooting the ball last year, and other players could be poised to break out as well.

Devin Vassell had a stellar sophomore season in San Antonio and could follow Keldon in becoming a third-year standout. Perhaps the most exciting name is Josh Primo, who showed flashes of excellence in his rookie year. He made it clear he would've been a high lottery pick in 2022 as well.

Primo was absolutely fearless with the ball in his hands, making clutch shots and showing he belongs on the NBA stage right away. Seeing his development will undoubtedly be one of the biggest thrills for Spurs fans this year.
