I'm rooting for the Spurs to win the West, as always, because while I like Duncan I also love hearing people biatch to no end about the Spurs being "boring" and "bad for ratings".  And I'm rooting for the Heat because the backbone of that roster was built by player decisions, not by management (which, again, pisses a lot of people off), and for once it was labor instead of management that held the leverage.

What I'm trying to say is, I might be the most annoying fan in the NBA playoffs.

The Spurs are done. Warriors in 6 (maybe 5).

Subby, the underdog lost game 1.  That's not a choke.

Coach Pop said it all: "I went from wanting to trade him on the spot to wanting to cook breakfast for him tomorrow morning," Popovich said. "That's the truth. When I talk to him and say, `Manu,' he goes, `This is what I do.' That's what he's going to tell me. I stopped coaching him a long time ago."

Favorite or dog aside, what would you call blowing a 16 point lead with 4 minutes left in the game, Se ahoghan?

I'd call that "blowing it."  "Choking," in my experience, refers more to a team heavily favored to win getting knocked out by a lesser team.  Like my Broncos to the Ravens.

The Spurs are one of the few teams that doesn't run a boring-ass isolation offense.  Yet still are dogged by that boring label.  Whatever.

Golden State is electric, with Curry just wildly good right now.

But this was the game GSW was supposed to and needed to win.  Spurs with a long layoff and built-up rust.  Still the Spurs somehow won, with that rust, with Duncan be-flu'd, Curry going off, Parker steps slow, and a crap-ass Manu game until the last shot.

Doesn't happen without the usual 4th quarter help frim the refs. Thompsons last two are no calls late and weren't called all game. A few other calls, like the over the back, were highly questionable.

The Warriors also lost game 1 against Denver. Don't book it, I'm just saying.

No kidding, lol, watching that game I could imagine him getting brain whiplash going from thinking "GODDAMN IT MOTHERFARKER MANU" to "heh heh...just don't do that again, okay?"

Danny Green's flop for Draymond Green's 6th was absolutely horrendous, and I've been a huge fan of Danny Green since UNC.

Warriors give up a 16-0 run in the final four minutes and this is a real post.

THis looked like Game 6 of the Denver series. The warriors turned the ball over too much at the end of the fourth quarter. Hopefully the warriors learn from this tough lesson.

Never listen to KNBR.  Never.

Doogled: Never listen to KNBR. Never.


The Rise Guys on 95.7 are actually pretty good, I think. Intelligent talk, they have cogent, thoughtful interviews with Bay Area sports personalities, and generally know their stuff. Plus, unlike KNBR, they don't pretend that the A's dont exist (it may have something to do with not being a part owner of the Giants, like KNBR is).

But yeah, KNBR is worse than Hitler. It's just awful, and if you listen to it, you are awful. Sports talk radio is certainly not for everybody, but the 95.7 morning show is actually pretty good.

/ I am in no way affiliated with or paid by 95.7 for the publicity
