Bill and Jalen’s work together on Grantland and NBA Countdown is as natural as the combo of John Madden and Pat Summerall. The chemistry they share is also synonymous with the chemistry of the Spurs, as Khari and Theo hand San Antonio the Bill and Jalen award for best chemistry in the NBA Playoffs. Led by Gregg Popovich, the Spurs have constantly been at the summit of the Western Conference, and since Tim Duncan’s arrival in 1997, the team has made the playoffs in 17 straight seasons.
What better team but the model of consistency that is the San Antonio Spurs. If any team looks to defeat this monster in the playoffs, they should not count on the Spurs to make it easy. They are a team of few mistakes, and no implosions. (We’re looking at you Indiana.)
