The 2013 NBA Finals were disappointing for the San Antonio Spurs, but the league's most consistent team has jumped out of the gate to an 11-1 record that has everyone buzzing.
For another year, the Spurs will compete for a title, as they continue their trend of consistent excellence.
But who, in fact, is responsible for their early prosperity?
The bench has been impressive, but which Spur has been able to offset the struggles of Tim Duncan?
The team may be excelling, but individually each player has given fans something to talk about.
However, for some the buzz is positive, and for others it is anything but. Though the team is gelling as a unit, individually each talent has performed on a different level.
