Even though it's a big part of my job, I'm glad the San Antonio Spurs have avoided the news recently. The NBA has been inundated with injuries, COVID protocols, head coaches being released, and GMs being let go. Meanwhile, the only story surrounding the Silver and Black right now has to do with where Assistant Coach Becky Hammon may end up.
With all but six teams out of the running for an NBA title, the blame game has begun, as teams are beginning to release team personnel and coaches in an effort to take a step forward in 2022. The Southwest Division has been the most active one in the news cycle recently and it hasn't been for positive things.
Spurs fans are understandably done with the "we like the team we have" mentality that has kept the front office from making major moves in recent offseasons. Still, in seeing what's happening around other teams just hours away from the Alamo City, I'm suddenly feeling like it could be much worse.
I fully expect the Spurs to make more moves than usual this summer. Fortunately, those who join the team will be jumping into one of the world's most well-run and stable organizations, even if they've struggled getting results as of late.
On the court, San Antonio hasn't won the divisional crown since 2016-17, but how well are they set up organizationally going forward compared to other teams in the Southwest? Let's jump into my rankings of team stability, from most hectic to least.
