The 2009 San Antonio Spurs Take A Step Back

The San Antonio Spurs of Tim Duncan and Greg Popovich had taken a modest step back in 2008. That step became more significant a year later. The 2009 San Antonio Spurs were still a good basketball team by any objective measurement, but the need for transition from the era of the decade’s championship years (2003, 2005, 2007) and into what would eventually become another championship team in the ensuing decade became more apparent.
