Just curious, are there Spurs haters? You figure with them being so successful for the past 10 years, they might get some haters. There's gotta be some in Phoenix, right?

Don't hate the Spurs...just hate watching them.

Even with Parker and Ginobili? I'll give you the teams before that...til about '06, when it was just defense and Duncan's bank shots.

I think it's more to do with...they do the simple things (which help you win) and make it look effortless and easy. When you watch Kobe or Lebron or Wade or Garnett - you know you will see something you haven't seen before. You will see some raw emotions, you will get to see their personality along with their game.

With Duncan and even with Parker and Ginobili, you don't get to see that. Ginobili can be fun to watch, but he is not a super-star, he is not an interesting personality, he will have a great game followed by couple of bad games. He comes off the bench...!

Trust me, Spurs are a great great team, and they are very clinical in the way they go about the game. I respect them tremendously. They are what every NBA team should be when it comes to being professionaly, but that's not what always sells the best. That's not what is always the best thing to watch.

I'ts like being in a perfect relationship. No fights, no arguments...and after a while, it gets boring.

That and nobody on our team can dunk it.

ha! Yeah. You guys need a little flash...those black and white unis don't help either.

For some really strange reason, I think the Spurs will actually get a bit more athletic this summer. That kinda have to, at this point. Duncan will be Duncan for another 2-3 years, but the Spurs desperately need guys that can get out and run with Parker and score easy buckets.

Anti-Spurs sentiment over the last several years has ranged from hatred (Suns fans, Mavs fans, Lakers fans) to mere resentment or boredom (everyone else). Here is my basic assessment of the last several years:

- Ginobili is one of the most interesting players in NBA history. His style is unorthodox but effective. He's fast, athletic, clutch as heck, and clever. Definitely, not boring.

- Parker is fast, fast, fast, but somewhat boring. He can drive and make an interesting finish, but that's about it. Somewhat boring.

- Duncan is brutally efficient. A true post player. McHale and then some. Boring to the casual fan, but endlessly entertaining to me.

- The bench is always old and boring, it seems. Except for Big Shot and guys like Stephen Jackson.

- The offensive scheme is boring. It's all half-court, and there are three or four plays total.

- The defensive scheme is fairly simple and effective. Slow down the best perimeter player (Bowen), control the paint (Duncan), and everything else falls into place. An oversimplification, sure, but it captures the essence of Spurs basketball.

Ouch.

Doesn't hurt my feelings. The lakers and the raiders are nothing alike. The lakers have the best owner in pro sports and more often than not on the top of the league and the raiders are being run into the ground by the worst owner in pro sports.

None of that has to do with the fans though. And Lakers fans are far worse than Raiders fans.

Every single team inthe entire world has fans just lime the ones that you guys call "laker fans". It's just their teams aren't that good and you never hear from them. I know many kings fans that fit your you description to a tee.

There sure are a lot fewer Kings fans than there were a few years ago.
Because they win a lot and are always arrogant. It's time for somebody else to win.

But if nobody can take it from them then they deserve to win. IMO they probably will win. Kobe (though I don't like him) is clutch when he needs to be. The best since Michael Jordan himself. When the game is on the line and it's the 4th quarter Kobe will make the shot. He's done that his entire career with the Lakers and he did it in the Olympics too. I don't get the same feeling from the Magic. Therefore the Magic are in trouble in close games. The only games the Magic can win are the ones where they beat the Lakers by a lot (and that isn't super likely to happen).
