The San Antonio Spurs represent the best of what's possible in pro sports. The coach (Gregg Popovich) teaches team basketball based around the fundamentals of the game; their star players (including the two best players in the game, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili) combine amazing talent with a genuine devotion to their team and their community; and the entire organization has devoted itself to making the community better, piece by piece.
With their third NBA championship, the Spurs, with players from six nations, have brought basketball to an international audience. Ginobili has become an ambassador for the game in Latin America, and has represented the game and his team with his characteristic grace and honor. The Spurs have become a flagship team for the NBA, and represent the game better than any team before.
