Hey, i just finished watching game 4 of the spurs vs. nets. Being from San Antonio, i naturally want SA to win. It was a pretty close game. Who do you want to win the ring? Anyone have any bets riding on it?
Bah, I thought i was a big basketball fan. I think i'm just a horrid LA fan.
I haven't been paying attention to the playoffs since the mavs lost to the spurs in the Western Conference Championship, and i can't get excited about the tremendous fundamentals of Tim Duncan. Sure his bank shots are nice to watch, but that's it really, he's a silent player and he plays with almost no emotion.
The Nets are bleh, I would've rather seen Walker and Pierce, rather than Kidd and Martin (though martin is great to watch)... so maybe i'm not just an LA fan... I think I would've rather seen any other teams besides the two that are there, fundamentals and defense just isn't as exciting as it is in baseball.
I really hate that ABC is carrying the Finals (as well as basketball in general). It just seems wrong. If anything, would someone put Bill Walton out of his misery - the man is so damned annoying.
Tim Duncan is a very silent player. They had a picture at ESPN.com of Duncan trying to block a shot of Kobe Bryant - Kobe had a look of extreme concentration - Duncan with his usual stony look.
Hell, even if he lacks emotion I still wish the Sixers had the number 1 draft pick that year. Instead they got Van Horn. Now look where that got them. Speaking of the Sixers, it is going to be a craptastic team on the court next season. The bottom fell out when Brown left - Samuel Dalembert, the future center? Who the hell is he?? The only time I've seen him was a year ago taking practice shots with Alvin Jones before the game. Ach. The curse lives on...
