If you ever took a long drive across state lines for vacation as a child, you know the feeling of impatient excitement. The "Are we there yet?" symphony ringing in your head is only matched by the eager anticipation of unrelenting joy you're sure to experience once you reach your destination. The San Antonio Spurs offseason has felt very much the same, but there is less than a month to go before NBA training camps begin.

With tipoff yet to occur, the mind is still free to imagine, be optimistic, and make predictions about the upcoming season. The inception of the Victor Wembanyama's era, paired with Devin Vassell's health and potential breakout season are major reasons for optimism in the 2-1-0. Keldon Johnson led the team in scoring last year, but there has been a change at the top of the totem pole, and things are bound to look different this season.

Three-Point Percentage: Julian Champagnie

Champagnie (40.7%) was only percentage points behind Doug McDermott (41.3%) for the second-highest three-point percentage on the Spurs roster last season. His action was limited to 15 games, but we have seen the St. John's alum shoot well from distance going back to his college days. His Summer League performance hinted at the small forward making a jump this year as it seems the game is coming to him more naturally.

Stanley Johnson led the team in three-point percentage last year before the Spurs waived him in February after 30 games with the ball club. McDermott is known as a marksman and will undoubtedly be Champagnie's biggest competition to lead the team from distance. Doug McDermott is also turning 32 in January, and if the Spurs can get consistent defensive production from the 22-year-old Champagnie to pair with his shooting prowess, expect him to get more opportunities on the hardwood.
