Some would say that two variables define an NBA team: talent, and culture.
Of course, talent comes first. The best culture in the NBA won’t win you any games without it. Still, you’ve got to establish a culture of hard work around your talent.
The San Antonio Spurs are about to get a huge injection of talent. This team landed the number one pick in the upcoming NBA draft.
As a result, they’ll be selecting Victor Wembanyama. Now, they need to re-establish their culture.
The Spurs have been a losing organization for years. This summer, look for them to target winning players to put alongside their new franchise player.
Could Marcus Smart of the Boston Celtics be a target?
