This team is getting older (obviously) but there isn't a trade that is going to make the spurs drastically better. If there was, they would have pulled the trigger already. I do think it is too early, and definitely unreasonable, to say that this team can't compete for a championship. Six months ago, they were a free throw away...
It is too early but still this year we notice that the Spurs are not beating the top teams at all, we have lost all the games against them and those will be the teams that we'll need to beat in the playoffs.
