Whose right? Well--this stat may sway the argument one way.
Typically one stat after another is trotted out in these discussions--titles, wins, honors, etc.--in attempt to prove a team and player's worth. The Spurs have definitely had their share of those, but this one is different, and in my opinion tells us a lot more of the team's greatness:
How good have @Spurs & Tim Duncan been? POR is his 43rd playoff series & they've been under .500 just 43 days total, since he's been there.

So in 17 seasons the team has only spent 43 days with a sub .500 record. As for the 43 playoff series--that's averaging the semifinal conference round every season for the last 17 years and in more than half of them going to the conference finals!
Now how awesome is that?
