Hollinger knows his s**t fo sho.

Hollinger is terrible, which is why it's so surprising he was right and everyone else was wrong.
spurs/warriors game 1 is still haunting me.....

Funny enough, he got hired midseason to work in the front office of the Grizzlies.

Carry this, bro.

In the highly competitive West, a grand total of two games separated the second seed from the fifth seed. I recall hearing confident predictions not so long ago of a Memphis-Miami Finals.

I said that Memphis would be an interesting matchup with Miami. I picked SA in the series against them though, although I didn't expect a sweep.

Pop essentially punted the end of the season, losing 3 games in a row, while the 3rd, 4th, & 5th seeds won 3, 7, & 2 games to end the season because they were playing for something. In reality there was about a 5 game difference between OKC/SA and everyone else, and Westbrook's injury torpedoed their chances. Spurs haven't played a particularly good team yet, at least by playoff standards.

You are still trying to rationalize why you feel SA is not an elite level team that can win a championship. 5 games is still a small gap. By these standards, MIA has only played teams that would be ranked 6th or lower in the West. If you want to include "playoff standards" then MIA played a sucky CHI team due to injuries. Indiana is a good matchup for MIA but it seems like everyone who was jumping on Memphis bus are doing the same with Indiana because they play a sound game. The only problem is that neither has the game changers.

Injuries was the main reason why SA hasn't gotten back to the Finals in a while. This team is not the same team as last year or previous years. It is an extremely well-balanced team in terms of youth, talent, veteran leadership, and playmaking ability.

Because mid to late 30's basketball players are usually just right to step into a sport they've never played and star at the games most important position. Stupid thiesman. lol

I remember when DET was going to wipe up SA because DET had beaten the Lakers the previous year.
I think it will be a similar toss up series and a type of team this MIA squad has yet to play in the playoffs.
