Spurs Blog: The Spurs Will Be Back, Don't You Worry

Because the Spurs got swept out of the playoffs by a team they once dominated, we're probably going to see several people writing about how their "dynasty" is over. It's only natural. 

However, SB Nation's Spurs blog Pounding the Rock writes that you shouldn't be swayed by those people. The Spurs will be back and will be just fine.

Get ready for dozens or hundreds of articles saying how over we are. I'm sure they'll manage to convince some of you, too. They'll ignore how well the Big Three scored against the Suns, one with a broken nose, the other with a thousand ailments. They are still that good, they'll be so next season. As long as they suit up, we'll be relevant. Believe, because they won't.

I don't know what the 2011 Spurs will be like - I do know that George Hill will continue to improve, because he's that kind of player. I can only try to imagine what a year of experience will do for DeJuan Blair, but I'm sure our throats will go raw yelling his name next season. Richard Jefferson will follow the pattern of so many other Spurs signings, and his second year within the system will be exponentially better. And yes, Tiago Splitter might be coming.

I can't make any promises about the team, and I know I don't need to. Come October you will all be here, hopeful and ready to get your hears broken once more if Lady Luck dictates it. You know Tim Duncan, you know Manu Ginobili, you know Tony Parker. It will be fun.
