We're a little late with starting the thread since the Spurs are up 1-0 after a blowout in Game One. and although I'm rooting for my favorite player of all time (Tim Duncan) to win one last ring, I think Memphis wins this in 6. Z-Bo had a horrible Game 1, but I expect him to rebound and for the Spurs age to show. I really hope I am wrong.

Thanks for creating the thread. Hopefully the Grizz can get it together, that first game was atrocious.

Yeah, good looking out on the thread man.

 

I'm gonna have to crash course in the expected format/info in each of our game threads for next year.  I made them in the past but just with basic info and without pics/stats, lol.

 

As far as the series, I always pulled for the Spurs growing up b/c of the Admiral.  I also liked Timmy and have always kind of pulled for Tony Parker because he was sort of an underdog, at least as far as Popovich goes.  And how can you not love Ginobili?

 

But, for some reason, I am pulling for the Grizzlies in this series.  I think it's one of those things where, if it's not your hometeam that's having such an awesome run of success, it's cool for them to get a 'chip or two, but after that, I'm ready to see someone else win it.  The Spurs have had a good run, but I like the Grizzlies scrappy style of play and would like to see someone new and unexpected in the Finals.

Glad to see Danny Green balling out. Who'da thought he'd be the 2nd best NBA player from that team? (Ty Lawson)

I would liked to have seen OKC in this series with a health westbrook. I think it would have made for a better series, I have a feeling this is going to be a sweep

I tell you what, I'm amazed at how far he has come.

 

I still don't think he starts on most teams, but Pop is able to make it work because how good Tony Parker is at finding the open man.

 

DG is strictly a spot of shooter as you can tell from this year playoffs, but sometimes that works... especially when you have a point guard that can find the open man.

He's playing great on the defensive side too. Hitting clutch shots etc. Did that at UNC too.

Yes sir, I only remember one time being legitimately pissed at him and that was in the ACC Tournament (the year we won the NCAA Championships) when he was hitting a damn thing, but then got it together in the NCAA Tournament.

Now that we're on UNC players i really hope Denver features Lawson more. As in i hope he becomes a 22 ppg 9 apg type player.
