Are the Spurs still contenders?
Yep, they'll contend for the title until coach Pop retires. I just watched them hold the Nets to 5 points in the 3rd quarter in awe, Duncan is playing like he's 26, Parker & Ginobli are still playing well, their bench is still deep as usual and the emergence of Kawhi Leonard figures to pay dividends come postseason. I expect him to play a huge factor in the playoffs on both ends of the court.
The only teams I consider to be contenders in the West are the Spurs, Thunder, Grizzlies & Clippers to be honest. The Spurs are capable of beating each and every one of these teams. Plus the Thunder squad that knocked them out of the WCF last year had a guy called James Harden who played terrific in the waning moments of that series. He's in Houston now, adv Spurs

The Spurs have always reminded me of an Anaconda. The just go about their biz very steady, sturdy and quietly. But then when you play them they slowly make their way up to your neck and wrap themselves around your body. Then they just squeeze the life right out of you.
I do agree with Djoker, that while they are always right at the top and right in the mix. I don't know if they can earn the Big Golden Ball when it is all said and done because of their age and the "new" teams that have emerged as the elite.
However, I still would have to be a fool to bet against Popp and The Spurs...
