Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: the NBA Playoffs

As a Spurs fan, I can honestly say that last intentional foul was handled horribly by the refs. Worst no call I've seen in a while. But Lebron did handle that pretty classy. The slow mo of him pleading to the refs at the end of the game was kinda sad to watch though  :-\

But yeah...like I said earlier in the post;

Well, tonight begins the end to the Cavs amazing run. Spurs in 4.

Yeh, I love basketball and I had to turn it off. Defense wins championships...offense wins ratings.

The only undefendable part of Duncan's game is his face-up mid-range bankshot. In the NBA of old, pre-Shaq rules, you could have doubled Duncan, or had a big camp out in the key waiting for him to do his little head-drop shoulder-charge thing. Duncan's game now is all about the mismatch (because he plays a 4), but he struggles when you put most players that are his size on him, or are able to double him.

Also, you could argue he might have had to play a 5 in the older NBA, in which case he'd have been guarding Ewing, Hakeem, Shaq, Jabbar, etc. It would have wore on him.

I think that besides Duncan's bankshot the only other things going for him are that he's intelligent in reading situations and reacting correctly to them, and he's always put in favorable situations, because of his coach, the refs lack of calling fouls (or too much on his defenders), or because he rarely plays a true big. He's kind of insulated to his advantage. And note that it's never Duncan who they rely upon in the last few minutes of the game, but Ginobli.

....but they win. Just b/c a player is a team leader doesn't mean he has to do everything for the team. Pippen? Rodman? Longley? Kukoc? Phil Jackson? Michael Jordan was insulated to his advantage with the Bulls. You simply couldn't double team b/c other players would make you pay instead. The same principle loosely applies to the Spurs.

Disclaimer: I am not, by any means, putting the Spurs on the same plateau as the Jordan era Bulls. No comparison.

All jokes aside, I don't get the boring thing. I love NBA basketball as a whole more than I like the Spurs. That said, I know the Spurs aren't the most exciting team in the league, but who really is? Besides the Suns and maybe the Warriors on good nights, there are no exciting teams. There are exciting players (James, Kobe, Carter, McGrady, Arenas etc.) but there's really no team that is exciting. Even if you feel so, it can be personal opinion. Some might find 3 pointers exciting, whereas someone else is excited by crisp passes. Who's to say?

And to all the people saying how grimy and dirty the Spurs are, wise up. It's called defense, something the NBA has been forgetting about lately. And in the end, don't blame the Spurs for getting away with calls. Isn't that what the refs are paid for? Blame them.

If it wasn't for LeBron, ratings would've been below 7.

Well if thats the case, this wouldn't have been the worst opening for the Finals ever. The Spurs have won 4 titles in the past 9 years, so if the Spurs were the problem, wouldn't one of those Final series have been the worst ever? Not to mention, the way Lebron shot in Game 1, he can't even save his own team, let alone the ratings.

The Spurs are boring.

We prefer the term "fundamental"  ;)
