I'm not saying lets be fans. But as a longtime laker fan, there are certain teams it feel much more satisfying to beat, watch, etc.
Boston will probably always be #1, but spurs are probably #2 when it comes to teams i respect/hate.
Can't tell you how many fans of the celtics ive met over the years where we get into these "can you believe the history these teams have against each other" discussions.
Ive come to view rivalries as crucial to my interest in the sport. Always killed me lakers play boston only twice during season during all those epic fights.
And nothings more gratifying than watching spurs and celtics lose big series.
...I mean i LOVED when spurs lost game 6 and then finals in game 7 after popovich held out duncan, mano, and parker, and green during that big regular season game against miami EVERYONE was looking forward to. Serves the turd right.
Just saying they have a good organization...not that im a fan

Praying for 1. Kobe's Health (a special 20th season, like he deserves), 2. Draft Picks Ballin (they better. Seems half the team hasnt played in league) 3. Miracle Move (We still need 2 more impact guys), 4. Hibbert (change of scenery and attitude sorely needed) 5. Upshaw (If he works out, mitch and jim and ryan deserve major kudos as the risk is minimal). Staples (some renewed energy in that building, been a total morgue last couple years)
READY FOR SEASON!
