i was out last night, but when the radio gave a game update they noted that the game was like 25-22 with a couple minutes left in the 2nd.  i was thinking "oh my god... its gonna be even worse than i thought."

Spurs in seven.

Why not.



When I said seven, I meant four.

I watched last night's game. It was brutal. The only way the Spurs let that 30 point lead go is out of sheer boredom.

I didn't even watch the 4Q but then heard this morning that the Cavs only lost by ten.

Did the Spurs play scrubs the final quarter?

For a little while, they were playing their reserves.  It's simply human nature to let up a bit when you're entering the 4th quarter up by 27.

I originally said Spurs in 6, but I'm thinking that it will only take them 5 games.  At the most.  I don't think they'll be playing another game in San Antonio this season.

I wouldn't mind seeing LaBong James score a few points this time around.

I've been watching the NBA Finals for over 20 years now, and this year's offering was definitely the worst.

That's because the Spurs are a bunch of low rent creeps and thugs.

Yeah, although it was nice seeing LeBron/Cleveland make it to the Finals this year, it seemed like one of the more "ho-hum" series in recent history.  I really enjoy the NBA, and usually watch the entire finals series, but found myself this year just checking in on the games more and more.  San Antonio was obviously the better team (at least in this series - I still think Phoenix could have beaten them), but that sure was an ugly, boring series for a Finals matchup.

i think a big part of the problem with this years finals is that we have all know who the new champs would be for like a month.   and then they win in the least inspiring method possible.

Thanks - that's interesting.  I was just passing on what I had heard on NPR this morning.  They were close.

Check out those MJ numbers.... :-*

Serves the NBA right for the way the Suns/Spurs series was handled (fixed).
