The San Antonio Spurs are the current NBA champions and their incredible team are once again showing that they refuse to leave the play-off seedings this season.
Many were impressed how a relatively aged Spurs side were able to overcome the Miami Heat in last years NBA Finals.
Well an animated video may have given us a clue as to why they were able to dethrone LeBron James and co. last year.
Starting with Tony Parker signing autographs for fans, the video then goes on a mission portraying some of the Spurs players as secret agents.
Featuring Parker, Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan and head coach Gregg Popovich as a make shift A-team, the cartoon features some strange scenes.
- LeBron James returns to Miami
- J.R. Smith reveals all about the Knicks
- NBA star honors Charlie Hebdo victims with 'Je Suis Charlie' shirt
Dressing Ginobili up as a child and having him kidnapped, including the Argentinian President and some great one liners, it is a very entertaining mini story.
Perhaps the most entertaining part of the entire clip is when the voice over reveals exactly how the A-team have avoided detection.
"These men went undercover, hiding in plain sight as the most boring teeam in professional sports."
Clearly poking fun at the NBA champions, the cartoon (which can be seen below) appears to be intended as a first episode of a new series.
Spurs staying up
San Antonio are currently 21-15 this season with some losses that they would probably not rather see mentioned again.
After losing their last game against the surging Detroit Pistons on their home court, they are looking to bounce back against the Phoenix Suns tonight.
The Spurs were within the top three favourite for the NBA Championship this year prior to the season according to the Las Vegas bookmakers.
The Spurs along with the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers were the three favourites to win it all this year.
Despite only being in January, all three teams are currently in seeded positions but two have failed to reach the heights expected of them.
The Cavaliers and Spurs are lower seedings than the Bulls and with teams like the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors topping the two conferences, they all have a long way to go in order to claim the NBA Championship.
