    The Spurs can get back on top pretty quickly. Let Ginobili walk, or sign him for the minimum, Use the cap space to get a very good FA. Parker is still an MVP candidate next year and they had an absolute fucking stud in Kawhi Leonard appear from virtually nowhere. Dunno if Duncan can still pull 30/15's out of his ass next year but he'll still be very good

    How about the Bad Boys Pistons of the late 1980s? All assholes except for Joe Dumars. The only dislikeable member of the Heat is LeBron, and that's almost all due to The Decision and the pep rally, which has faded from most peoples' minds. Although LeBron's "Come at me, bro" posturing during the trophy ceremony certainly didn't endear him to anybody inclined to hate him.

    Bad boys are one. Also various Yankee, Patriots and Man U teams through recent history could also be remembered as proper super villain teams

    yeah, i'd throw in georgetown during the thompson days, university of miami football, nevada-las vegas under tarkanian. i'd say on the whole, the heat is merely irritating. last night i hated them though.

    I think the spurs can actually swing a josh smith signing (may have to use 3rd team for a salary dump). that would basically put them right a the top of the west again.

    thank god espn changed their cover page... I can't stand seeing the LeBron smug, douche idiot face he's been making non-stop since last night. Ironically it's now Roger Federer... what a world of difference....

    I see Drake finally linked up with Lebron after getting rejected at the locker room doors last night.

    Been in Mourning.

    Started new job, but was able to see most games in their entirety.

    Observations:

    Pop got out-coached at the end of Game 6.

    Manu is no longer effective and needs to move on. Johnson would be a great replacement.

    Leonard is a stud.

    Green can be, but gets flustered too easily.

    Figure 1 more year for Duncan.

    The Spurs are legitimate contenders for next year, although Rivers going to the clips is signficant.

    So...Doc to the Clippers, huh? And some journalists are saying he wanted out partly because he didn't want to coach a rebuilding team and partly because he hated Rondo.

    Now I've said many times how I believe Rondo is a punk, but is he a truly horrible person or did he piss someone off in the Boston media? I remember they tried to pin Ray Allen's departure on him too

    btw, Heat victory parade is today. Lebron haters please make sure you tune in - to see if he says something to keep the spark of hate in your cold cold hearts over the offseason :lol:
