I actually find that jersey design to be relatively CM friendly, though I wouldn't wear it with a grenadine tie or anything.

 

Jersey colors, combinations are actually a big part of sports. It's not the most off-base topic we've seen around here.

Most. Boring. Team. To. Watch. Of. All Time.

 

Though Popovich is one witty sun of a gun.

Did you stop watching after the 2005 Championship? I loved it, because I love watching defense, but I get that people outside of SA and Detroit were probably pulling their hair. The Spurs' style of play has changed drastically since then. Their 2014 dismemberment of the Miami Heat was described by most sportswriters as the most beautiful basketball they've ever witnessed.

 

A good read on dynasties:

Yeah but........Dirk?

Sadly, the Mavs will not be winning another championship anytime soon.

I'm just glad they at least won one. Both Dirk and Cuban deserved that. Cuban is a young guy. If he stays owner, I'd be very surprised if they don't win another within the next two decades.

Can dirk walk anymore? I think he just cherry picks on offense all game

I appreciate that. Most of my friends hate the Spurs, but it's impossible to hate their game. It's a thing of beauty. I think we'll only win another one after the Dirk era. We're too centered around him at the moment and he's aged.

I wouldn't call his game cherry picking. He does try to draw fouls, but isn't that what the NBA is now? Harden, Lebron, Ginobili, etc

I also think a vast majority of people outside of Ohio were rooting for GS (or at least against Cleveland). I am fine with LeBron bringing home a championship to Cleveland but want to see him struggle for it a bit more.

I still say Nate Silver should have stuck to political forecasting. Some of their sports stuff is interesting but a lot of it is just weird. I don't disagree that the Spurs have been a consistently very solid team and I actually enjoy watching them play (of course, I also enjoy watching Barcelona and Spain play soccer).

Well he started with sports before he did politics

Interesting. Never knew that. I first heard about him after he nailed that presidential election and mostly knew him through his political stuff. Got a free copy of his book "The Signal and the Noise" at a conference where he was the keynote speaker. Decent book. Interesting and bright guy. I just am skeptical of some of the quant work done analyzing sports other than baseball.

I love Dork Elvis.

 

Also, I'll check out that book.

Dork Elvis? Someone reads Bill Simmons/Grantland

No shame in that. And now it's more like Bill Simmons ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Grantland.
