Note to the San Antonio Fans: This Is Your Finest Hour. [Jun. 11th, 2007|01:00 am]

It's gotta be sad for King Stern to see how very little people care for his league and the game provided in favor of the high scores and selective stars that the league chooses to market on an ESPN-highlight level that lasts only a few seconds. What an utter failure for the commissioner, in sum, for this season's example.

When you spend years of burn for names instead of teams and the game, then you get absolutely what's happening with this season. It can only get worse.

Unfortunately, I don't have any further for sympathy for that NYC buffoon.

Imagine if the players and referees union scream for more at next juncture. The 05 CBA was more like an 05 Terrorist Bargaining Agreement.

I love a dominant team, and the Spurs are it. Shut down the Cavs offense in Game 1 . . . didn't scratch the surface of SA's offense, either. Game 2 . . . Cavs offense works slightly better . . . Spurs turn up the offense. If you grind it out, then SA will grind it out much better. If you run and gun, SA will do it better. If you send a superstar to defeat the Spurs, then SA will kill that man on the court. This is your dynasty, ladies and gentlemen. It should be given burn, not getting burned by absolutely little positive press. Remember, the national media and complacency in the front office threw Detroit under the bus in favor of talking this kid up as the league's hope for the present, not the future, of the very same dominance that San Antonio's put upon the league.

Regardless of media lunacy and the court jester that runs the league . . . thank you for providing your example.

Now don't screw it up over these next two games. San Antonio has the possibility to destroy the head while keeping the body alive.

As for Casual Fan ™ . . . your disposable income is greatly overvalued. Now stay away.

Re: Complete Rambling Rant on Eurobasket.

Lol. Foreigners. My make-shift crappy team (with Darius Miles, Matt Carroll and David Lee being it's best players (it makes it obscenely challenging)) just got beat in NBA 2K7 by a buzzer-beating 40-footer by Vladimir Radmanovic. I semi-broke the controller; the right side is somewhat shattered on the bottom. Not that I have problems losing tight games, I just hate losing at the hands of SHIT players, even with my POS team.

60-80% sounds about right. The only good reason I can think of their pretentious is the big fish, small pond analogy. The talent level in the Eurobaketball pool is far lower than the NBA lake. They light up the lackluster defense of Euroball and think that they are the best, which leads to their arrogance.

About 60-80% of Euros are good for one thing: shooting open jumpers over the late Euro defense. They aren't good at defense and make many mistakes all over the floor (Sasha, anyone?). This can lead to their benching and, sometimes, their fading away into obscurity.

Euros, much like the American Dollar, have much more value in Euroland. End of story.
