There's no doubt that the San Antonio Spurs are the best team in the NBA, as evidenced by their inability to lose a single game in the 2012 playoffs.
Unfortunately for the Spurs, that doesn't mean they are a lock to coast to the 2012 NBA title. The Oklahoma City Thunder are standing in their way, and the Thunder could very well be the superior squad of the two.
With that being said, there's no team in the NBA playoffs that has played as consistent, as efficient and as much like a true team of players as the Spurs have so far.
If you're a basketball coach and want to show your players what true team basketball looks like, and how effective it can be, look no further than the Spurs. From ball movement, to half-court defense, to execution of their half-court offense, the Spurs are as close to perfection as you'll ever get.
The Spurs' dominance has been impressive to say the least, but they haven't been forced to win extremely close games yet, like their OKC Western Conference pals. Overcoming adversity is a huge part of being a championship-caliber team, and that's why the Thunder currently have the higher odds for the 2012 championship.
