Spurs the favorite to win the 2012 NBA Championship

In the start of the 2011-2012 NBA Season, every analyst jumped on the Miami Heat Bandwagon and predicted them to win it all.

Well those predictions quickly changed with the start of the Second Round of the Playoffs as the San Antonio Spurs proved to be the most well-rounded team.

Many believed Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili were either too old or always had the injury cloud over their head.

Head Coach Gregg Popovich did a great job this season limiting the playing time of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker so they could be fresh for the Playoffs.

This strategy is proving to be successful as the Spurs entered Game 4 versus the Clippers on a 17 game winning streak.

The Spurs can go 18-0 and send the Clippers home packing.
