Commentary: Five reasons you should pull for Spurs



The Spurs’ driving forces have gotten older and have needed more and more complementary help, all of which has been guided by Popovich, to maintain their greatness. 

Think about it this way.

What did Phil Jackson ever do with an aging Jordan, an aging Shaq or an aging Kobe? Nothing, because he had those guys in their prime.

All that and the guy’s hilarious, almost without saying a word.


5. Miami, really: Do you really want to watch the Heat win again? Do they really excite you? Yes, LeBron has become more likable since “The Decision,” and Dwyane Wade’s been there the whole time kind of like Duncan, Ginobili and Parker have always been Spurs, but do they really do anything for you, really?

They’ve always been more fun to watch lose than win. This time’s no different.
