I hope the Spurs get down to the 6th spot and NO, Portland, and Houston all move up.

Then the Spurs will not play the Lakers or NOH until the Conference Finals. That would be a much easier first two rounds against inexperienced teams.

I hope the Spurs meet the Blazers in the first round. The Blazers would get into the second round quickly and have plenty of time to be rested for the following series.



You guys won't know what hit you, literally!!! Your athleticism will be neutralized by the physical play and slow game. That's why I will take experience over a young team in the playoffs more times than not.

Tony Parker is going to have to score 40 points a night for you to have a shot. No disrespect to Tim, but he is done. He had a great career, first ballot HOFer - but the end has arrived.

With some Bowen clawing and Udoka, and Thomas bumping, you guys will be out of your game.

Udoka's loyalties are with the Blazers. And Bowen will be sharing the ice pads with Timay. Kurt Thomas? His career was over 10 years ago.

Kurt Thomas will be our goon for any series against an inexperienced squad.

Putting your eggs in Kurt Thomas's basket would have been like Blazer fans resting their title hopes on Chris Dudley.

It worked when Horry laid out Nash or when Magic laid out Thomas or when the Pistons laid out everyone until Jordan finally got older and more experienced or how Fisher is always more physical in the playoffs.

Your youth will show.

I think he's trying to convince himself more than he's trying to convince anyone else.

Not against Portland in the playoffs, that's a whole different season.
Speaking of the NBA helping out Texas teams, did you see how your Spurs barely beat the Kings tonight? Finley hits the game winner a second after the shot-clock expired. How the hell does that happen? Is the shot clock not accompanied by a horn in Sacramento?

Nope, the horn sounded perfectly clear. Just a completely blown call. Terrible.

No, I would be embarrassed if I claimed that my team really was the better team after hitting an 18 footer with 0.04 seconds left on the clock.

You could have at least posted a video. I don't hear a buzzer until the ball is in the air. Doesn't look like a blown call to me.
I was hoping the Spurs would lose. The 6th seed is the goal and the easiest road to he conference finals.

Not me. I hate it when the Spurs lose.

This was a win-win. The Spurs get closer to HCA in the first round. The Kings get closer to drafting Blake Griffin.

Tony Parker is a fantastic basketball player. If Tim Duncan's knees continue to improve---he says the pain is "almost gone"---he and Parker can be a solid 1-2 punch in the playoffs. Roger Mason is a viable third scoring option. The bench is playing well. Pop has apparently been saving Bowen for the playoffs. (I hope that's what he's been doing.)

I don't think the Spurs will go far, but as a fan I want to see Tim Duncan's playoff beastliness. I want to see Tony Parker step up. I want to see George Hill get some experience. I want to see if Gooden can rebound and bring energy to the second unit. Set the table for 2009-2010.

Or, heck, win it all this year.
