I really don't follow the NBA at all but I'm extremely satisfied that the Thunder are out.

If Memphis does manage to get past the Spurs, they will be quickly dispatched by Miami, which will fortify my distaste for the NBA. Since 1980, there have been 20 different World Series champions, 16 Stanley Cup champions, 16 Super Bowl winners, and only 9 NBA champs, and two of those, Philadelphia and Dallas, only have one, and Houston's two during Michael Jordan's stint in minor league baseball, leaving the Lakers, Celtics, Pistons, Bulls, Spurs and Heat. I hate that about the NBA.

Of course if, as I expect, San Antonio and Miami meet in the finals, this trend is guaranteed.

I lost interest after the Lakers and Stephen Curry both got knocked out of the running

I kind of agree with Paul Smeenus about this. I like the sport but it's tough to watch sometimes because there is next to no parity in the league. I mean, why would I watch a series between let's say the Nuggets and Warriors when I know that neither of them have a chance at winning it all? It's basically just delaying the inevitable. And that's in the West, where you don't even have to worry about how dominant the Heat are until the Finals. And I actually really like LeBron and the Heat. It just takes a lot out of it when you can call what happens before the playoffs start (or sometimes even before the season starts).

Pwwfff, I like this trend, and I'll tell you why.

See, back in the 90s my dad guided a bunch of out of state folks for various game, mostly pheasants. One of them was a former General Manager for the Spurs, who - when I was sitting in the truck with him and my dad - handed me a hat David Robinson had received during the '96 All Star game at San Antonio, which was autographed by Robinson. I guess players only get ten of this hats or something per All Star game.

So, yeah, go Spurs. Dominate the league forever. I want that hat to increase in value, goddamnit.

i like how sportscasters keep trying to profess james as "one of the all time great finishers" only to later on watch him turn the ball over twice in the last minute or so.

He's still the best player bar none, its just clear that the whole center stage thing is not his game. The buzzer beater layup is hard to give him too much credit for.

I think a finals with the grizzlies/heat would be neato. I think the big vs small battle would be extra potent with those two squads but spurs/heat will suffice too.

Apparently nobody is watching the grizzlies/spurs games, viewership down 40% from last years conference finals.

Yeah, that was pretty brutal by James to close it out there. He missed a 3 just before those turnovers as well. I disagree with you saying the center stage thing isn't his game though. He does have a great track record for closing out games.

Indiana is going to lose this serious. They will not win. It will be Miami Heat.
