San Antonio Spurs Lamarcus Aldridge

The Golden State Warriors have stolen all the headlines six weeks into the NBA season, but the San Antonio Spurs have quietly gotten off to their best start in franchise history. The Spurs’ 18-4 record ranks as the second-best in the Association, and Tony Parker and company will be looking to make it 19 against the Toronto Raptors north of the border on Wednesday.
