There's no easy answer to give on why the San Antonio Spurs haven't gotten more attention in recent years. They definitely haven't generated the same kind of buzz in recent years as other championship teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat and even the Dallas Mavericks. Some think it's because they play in a small market, and many find their style of play bland, while others think the Spurs aren't a dynasty because they never repeated as champions. Whatever the reason may be, the franchise has made their mark on NBA history.
The San Antonio Spurs have not missed the NBA playoffs since drafting Tim Duncan in 1997. During that run, they have advanced to the Western Conference Finals eight times and are now looking to win their first NBA title since 2007. Despite their consistency and championship-winning ways, Gregg Popovich's squad has never quite gotten as much attention as some of the other dominant teams in recent years. His group of players isn't the first team to dominate their sport, but not the headlines or history books.
