What we learned from the Spurs loss to the Mavericks
I haven’t been this happy with a losing record in 25 years. Granted, that’s a bit rich coming from a Spurs fan. After all, what does a Spurs fan know about losing records? There was the one in the 1996-97 season. It turned out to be the losing record to end all losing records for the next 22 years. And if it wasn’t for the most recent two seasons, the concept of a losing record would be nothing more than a very distant childhood memory for me. Some franchises peak lower than the Spurs have sunk since the Uncle Dennis incident, some franchises even sell tickets to people for games they don’t even try to win. No such travesty in San Antonio. But that doesn’t mean I wasn’t disappointed with how the last two seasons turned out.
