WZ Showdown!!! Magic vs Spurs

Damn. The Spurs played at the speed and focus of a college level team tonight. Can't really blame the back to back as all they did was go from Miami to ORL.

Face it bro, unfortunately your spurs are old and might as well be done. They probably need to rebuild. You guys had a great run while it lasted though.

This man speaks the truth. (from experience)

Wow. A showdown thread so one guy can talk to himself for 3 pages?
Geritol FAIL.
FYI, the Spurs only have 3 players over 30. Dejuan Blair and George Hill are 20 and 23, respectively.

Getting rid of Finley, Bowen, Ratliff, Oberto, and Thomas has really changed this team. Now young and inexperienced guys like Malik Hairston, Garrett Temple, and Yawn Mahinmi are getting minutes.

Ok.





Gatorade FAIL.

I was thinking the exact same thing when one of the announcers said the Spurs are one of the oldest teams. I don't think they were tired more than they checked out when none of their shots were landing.
Timmy looked REALLY old last night though.

Yes, definitely a fail.

The Spurs are contenders when they have Parker's quickness, Manu's craftiness, and Duncan's all-around dominance. The problem is, they haven't had all three simultaneously in a long time. That's partly due to age (Duncan and Ginobili).

The Spurs have plenty of youth. They need to get the big 3 healthy for the playoffs, that's what it's about. But even then, I think the Spurs could use a Rasho-like 7 footer to help Duncan out. That was the biggest fail of the offseason.

Welcome to a jrg thread (Stoney started it, but it's still a jrg thread). The Cardinals thread is the best. 25 posts, 19 by James.

Also, the commentator mentioned the bench did not help and that the Spurs bench is usually tops in the league. Ahem, did they realize the reason why our bench in near tops in the league is because the main guy from the bench is now starting.


Also, jrg is to ORL posts prior to gametime as I am to Spurs posting prior to gametime which means that I liked ORL but now I hate ORL.
