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.

Grizzlies should not have won the last series, they are overmatched

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.

    • Is it Cam simply refusing to go underneath or is it a number of contributing factors? We are a running/downfield passing team. The problem was, we couldn't get the run game going due to the OL, and our play calling/design didn't help matters at times to compensate for that deficiency either. Nobody complained about this in 2015 when we nearly went undefeated. So what was the difference between seasons? It couldn't have had anything to do with our depleted OL could it? Overall we shot ourselves in the foot too many times in 2016 in various ways. But the reality is the OL was at the center of our woes.
    • What you’re saying doesn’t make sense.  The society we have now, was structured based completely on race.  That number I mentioned concerning the black prison population, there is no way in the universe you can get that number without being directly targeted.  Even during South Africa Apartheid, their prison numbers in the black population wasn’t as bad, nowhere near close.  This is our country. The only way to truly make things right, is to acknowledge the problem and addressed it specifically.  The reason why we see protests like the one Kaepernick did, is because that problem hasn’t been addressed.  Of course I have my answer on how to address it, but I’m sure most would completely disagree with it, even though the statistics would show it is much deserved.
    • Taylor Moton is a big man. He's a very athletic 300lb+ tackle who moves around defenders like they're nothing. He appears to have a bright future in shoring up our tackle spot, and likely dominate in the NFL. However, an underrated aspect of Moton is just how intelligent he really is. When you think of Memorial Day weekend plans, you think of barbecues and hanging out with friends and family. However, Moton plans include a lot of study and filmwork. Just take a look: http://www.panthers.com/news/article-2/Taylor-Moton-trying-to-soak-in-new-studies/227630c4-675d-4393-a1ab-526b528c4425 Taylor Moton seems to be ready to soak in all the information he can muster to get ready to compete in Training Camp. An intelligent big guy with a bright future in the NFL.
