Put The Brooms Away
First off, here are the Spurs.com top 10 highlights of the season. Some good stuff for any NBA fan, not to mention Spurs fans.
Also, Coach Popovich’s mailbag has a few interesting bits of information in it. He chimes in a little on the Tony Parker trade rumors, DeJuan Blair’s shooting, and Tiago Splitter.
Now as for the Conference Finals, well I say it’s about time these games weren’t grossly one-sided. Orlando finally showed a pulse last night winning in OT… in Boston no less. I wouldn’t be surprised if they can pull out one more and send this series back to Boston again. Of course, I also wouldn’t be surprised if the Celtics went to Orlando and smashed the Magic by 30 points. It’s kind of a weird place we’re in with expectations right now.
Phoenix also showed a little heart against LA. The difference here is that the Suns haven’t lost any home games and didn’t take four games to show up. I still hold out hope for Phoenix even though I know they are out-matched. Andrew Bynum’s knee issues certainly don’t hurt Phoenix’s cause right now.
In other news, LeBron is still being expected to go to pretty much any team in the NBA. It seems like everyone has a case for why he would go to one team or another. I personally think it comes down to Cleveland, New York, Chicago, and Miami – in that order. Dallas and the Clippers will try and keep hope alive but I just don’t see it.
