Interesting. Lakers. to Clippers. to Warriors.

Winning one game against SA certainly doesn't make the"Dubs" NBA champions. There are 3 more wins against SA, Memphis/OKC, plus most likely MIA.

But you were kidding I hope?

I still prefer OKC to win it all over the Heat but it's hard to not cheer for the Dubs when they are so young and just give you a shooting exhibition every night.


Plus like I said a page or two back, I don't think they are there yet and that they won't win but I'd be happy to be proven wrong once again.


That has been how the Spurs been playing in this series though, getting buried and then making a comeback, which is exactly what happens in Game 2, they just couldn't make it up in time. Dubs just had a better response to the Spurs comeback last night and they just can't win the series playing they way they have. Really no bias on either end, just a an analysis on the game.

i love the spurs, but so far they're kind of reminding me of last year's laker team. their window of opportunity might be closing. really like leonard and green, though, and maybe that's enough to build around.

Two good players and I like them too(Leonard went to my cousins High School in Riverside) but I just don't think you can build a team around them. I have a feeling they are going to have a solid wingman type career. They are young and they can certainly develop but I just don't see them being a franchise player.

come on, those guys are very good role players at best. when Duncan retires they are going to try to build a run and gun team around Tony Parker's last prime years, bottom out for awhile until they can rebuild, and go from there
post #11661 of 17988
you're right. i was lazy to use the term "build a team around". but i do think they are capable of having solid careers beyond next year, which i'm afraid makes them a rarity on the spurs. (and, yes, they're still on average younger than my lakes ... and the knicks, and the clips, and the hated heat).

Except the Spurs don't bottom out. They've only had 4 bad seasons and missed the playoffs 4 times since their inception in the ABA in 1976. Right after I came home from Nam.

lol this series is becoming the most interesting, entertaining series to watch. not as physical as other series though. the bulls have been getting a little carried away too, like joakim noah shoving chris andersen for no reason.

My varsity coach would say Lebron's body stance is textbook for taking a charge haha.
post #11668 of 17988
the Bulls need to cut that shit out. they've actually earned my admiration for hanging really tough, which is really tough for me to say as a Heat homer who despises Boozer and Nate Robinson. they are acting like fucking children, especially Noah, who seems to be the embodiment of that "can dish it out but can't take it" guy that everyone knows at least one of

Couple of close calls last night all went to Miami... especially the foul on Noah near the end of the 4th when he fought Bosh for a rebound. That possession could have tied the game and bring back the sliding offense for the Bulls.
