San Antonio Stars Team Info
After making the playoffs every season from 2007 through 2012, the Stars had a bit of a rough spell in 2013, making a rare finish outside of the playoff picture and forcing them to retool a little bit. But the 2014 Stars were able to rebound in a hurry, making it right back into the postseason and giving fans reason to think that this is a team that could win it all in the near future. The Stars have a team that can do a little bit of everything, with some lights-out shooters on the perimeter and some big-time playmakers inside that make them a very difficult team to matchup against on a regular basis. With the Stars hoping to pull together and deliver a playoff run that will energize the fan base yet again, it's always a good time to be a San Antonio Stars backer.
