The San Antonio Spurs are having an exceptional season right now, and at nearly any other time in NBA history, people would be waxing lyrical over how good they are.

In the last week of the regular campaign, the Spurs have a chance to go the entire season unbeaten at AT&T Center, which is an incredible achievement that everyone at the franchise should be immensely proud of.

That is, everyone except head coach Gregg Popovich, who has stated that the feat is worthless if it doesn't end with the Spurs lifting the Larry O'Brien trophy.

According to Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News, Popovich has labelled the 41-0 mark "absolutely meaningless."

"What does it get you if you’re undefeated? Does it win you anything?" Popovich asked reporters. "That’s why it’s meaningless."

Coach Pop makes a very good point. What good is an unbeaten streak without the silverware to back it up? Would the Golden State Warriors rather break the 95-96 Chicago Bulls regular season record and go out in the first round of the playoffs or lose their last three games but win another NBA championship? 

The answer has to be the latter, which is all that Popovich cares about. Championships are what everyone looks at as a successful team, not a gimmick record.
