The San Antonio Spurs host the Dallas Mavericks tonight in their season opener as they officially turn the page on the first chapter of the Victor Wembanyama era. While these storied in-state adversaries have headed in opposite directions over the last couple of years, the arrival of the teenage phenom is sure to level the playing field a bit for Head Coach Gregg Popovich and company.
