Originally posted by Leathaface:Not a super team but a team that I really wanted to win a title was the Suns with Nash the year dirty ass Greg Pop sent Whorey to check Nash...leading to a 2 game suspension for Stoudemire and a 1 game suspension for Diaw.
Suns were the best team in the NBA that year.
I'm a Suns fan and that series still pisses me off. The worst part about the suspensions is that Tim Duncan came off the bench when James Jones up-ended one of their players under the net. David Stern decided to rule that Duncan had no intent to escalate the scenario....apparently Amare and Diaw had the intent. Glad to know the league can read minds. What a joke.
I lost faith in the NBA after that decision along with Tim Donaughy admittedly changing one of those games in that series to favor the Spurs. It's tough knowing your team had a legit shot and was completely robbed in multiple ways.
