The San Antonio Spurs are done, Texas Toast, done!

Please allow me to preface this article by saying that I despise the San Antonio Spurs. As a Lakers fan (due to the signing of Shaquille O’Neal and drafting of Kobe Bryant, my two favorite players of all time) since the summer of 1996, I can do no other.

However, I also consider myself to be an armchair General Manager. And I take as much joy in concocting trade proposals and figuring out ways to rebuild and strengthen each and every NBA franchise as most fans do in watching their favorite team stomp their rivals to dust in a playoff game; strange but true. I have had a gift for numbers since childhood and could almost instantaneously memorize the stats of every player on an NBA team at a very young age. Today I have committed the salary of every player on entire team rosters to memory … for fun. Yes, I'm a 6'3", 250lb, Che Guevara look-a-like "numbers geek".

I also have no qualms admitting that the San Antonio Spurs have been one of the most magnificently managed teams in professional sports over the past two decades, that they are a team worthy of respect and admiration … and that they are team on the decline who’s future is anything but clear, let alone bright.

All of the above said, this article is dedicated to proposing just one simple 4-step plan that could return the Spurs to their former glory, close out Tim Duncan’s career with another title or three and give the Spurs fan-base a future to be excited about.
