Either all those teams suffer permanent setbacks (injuries, god forbid) for the balance of the year, as we'll surely face them again in the playoffs, or the Spurs make an absolute, undisputed upgrade to their own roster.
but I don't think it will take much of an upgrade.
I am never coming back to SpursReport because Will The Thrill is a horses ass.
