Spurs/Hornets preview



The hot new point guard, playing for a town that everyone wants to succeed.

vs

A player who is so great that he bores fans and opposing defenses to death. A team that has more flops than Kevin Costner. Playing in a state that gave us the Decider (Connecticut?) and Mr. Debbie Clemens.

There’s no justifiable reason to root for the Spurs anymore. I’ve rooted for them in the past if only because there is something awesome about seeing greatness in action. They’ve been amazingly efficient over the years; well coached, with players who have been together for a long time and are in it for the common purpose. And they just made a mockery of fan favorite and my NBA Championship pick, the Suns. Not only did one of the most anticipated first round matchups in recent memory not go past 5 games, the Spurs served the Suns like they were facing me in fantasy baseball.

In fact, I’ve noticed a trend recently. I picked the Giants to lose to Tampa, Dallas, Green Bay, and New England and lost. I picked the Suns to be NBA champions. And I picked the 7th place and falling SUS fantasy juggernaut, Devo’s Dumbasses. I’m not a doctor, but I’m starting to notice a trend. So let’s go Spurs in 6 and hope that my trend continues.
