The Spurs can literally throw bricks at the basket and they will still go in.

4 championships, the best coach currently in the NBA and competing in the upper echelon of the toughest conference for past 2 decades in the NBA isn't overrated.

 

The Spurs are a class organization.

 

Up by 15 almost at the half - again not overrated.  Don't let your distaste for a team overrule logic.  The Spurs are a damn good team.

4 championships? Big whoop

They're chokers that have been lucky a few times. They're a dirty flopping organization and I hate em just like I hate Boston.

You let your hatred of players and teams blind you man.

 

You gotta start looking at the game with your head, not your heart, you'll be better off for it.

 

There's zero reason to hate the Spurs - zero.

Doubling Z Bo and Gasol and letting them shoot 3 pointers/jumpers, Pop knows SG, SF are not knock down shooters, only Conley and they can live with him shooting. Pop is not going to let all three Conley Z Bo and Gasol get going together, role players and Prince and Tony are going to have to step up.

Series still not over. Memphis has always done this, and they always start slow in series.

I remember them as a dirty team back when we went back and forth with them. And they're the most boring team ever...might as well watch wnba

Gimme a break, that same tired argument?  Winning is never boring.  The Lakers didn't play an exciting brand of basketball during the threepeat or the last back to back either.  The  last flashy team that won rings was the '80s Showtime Lakers - and unfortunately that will never happen again.

 

For the past 25 years flash hasn't won anything, as evidenced by the Warriors collapse.

 

They weren't dirty, they played defense like its supposed to be played, the same way the Lakers played it in the '80s, during the threepeat and with the last back to back run.  It's only dirty because its not your favorite team.


Again letting your heart rule your head.

They haven't won anything since 2007. They're top seed chokers.

The triangle is way more exciting than anything Greg "Intentional Foul" Popovich has pulled outta his ass. You don't have to be flashy but they're just so damn boring. I watch them for more than a quarter and I get sick to my stomach. Bruce Bowen was the epitome of dirty and it trickled down to the rest of those scrubs.

Boston and San Antonio...disgusting.

I'll post what I posted on facebook. This was at halftime

Depends how long it takes the grizz to figure out San Antonio.

they did it to OKC and the Clippers.

If they figure them out before the end of this game then they'll be fine.


San Antonio shot the lights out and Grizzlies had a bad offensive first half and SA is only up by 14.

San Antonio was on pace to have a 60 point half, they got 47 instead.

Slowly but surely Memphis is figuring them out.

They're gang-raping Marc like they did to D12.
