NBA 2012 Postseason

Spurs-Thunder Game 1:

Aaaaand that's what happens when a jump shooting team, no matter how good, runs into a balanced cohesive team.

I hate the Spurs as a franchise, but man do I respect their personnel. I'm a total fan of Manu's stupid Euro-step drives to the bucket, his ungainly pestering defense, and his ridiculous synergy of confidence and humility...i.e. he never NEEDS the ball to be happy/feel loved, but never hesitates to step up when his team needs him.

He even catches bats: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iloN1RPs4n0

"I'm very fortunate in that I didn't have to deal with a star's ego," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "I dealt with grown-ups, who had character and prioritization already set in their lives and their values, that sort of thing.
"Timmy came along, David understood his talent and made it very easy for Tim to become the go-to guy. As Tim got older, he understood the value of Manu and Tony and was able to share that spotlight with them. I never had a talk, I never had a discussion, a meeting or anything with any of those guys about that. We just did it. The process kind of morphed along. It's because of their character we were able to do it."

Aurgh! Shaq and Kobe should've won, oh, at least 8 straight championships... I'm jealous of the Spurs.

Anyone else think Erik Spoelstra kinda looks like Ny?

Heat fans should make a shrine to D-Wade's jacked up knee. It gave LeBron the chance to be THE MAN. He was just beastly. Now that he's figured out how not to choke, the rest of the NBA is in trouble.
