NBA Season Preview: Can The Spurs Protect The Title?


It’s the last Friday before the new NBA season starts. That leaves you the entire weekend to refresh yourself on your favorite players and teams well before the first official jumper.

Or is there another team in the competitive Southwest Division just waiting to knock them off?
