why all the angst. When Manu went down we all knew the Spurs were not going anywhere in the playoffs. They played tough, Tim and Tony have done well but you need a third scorer. I do not expect the Mavs to advance much farther either but they could surprise me. Anyway good luck to all the the teams in the playoffs. If there is any team besides Lakers and Cavs in the finals I will be shocked.

It's funny to hear people say Duncan can't carry his team like he used to.

News flash - this has been Parkers team this postseason - watching them play everything starts with him on the offensive side of the ball for the most part - they don't play through Tim enough to warrent it truly being his team.

Which is not surprising - Dallas has more trouble guarding pick and roll basketball than Tim Duncan on the blocks, but I've always said the most important aspect of a dominant big man is they slow the game down for everyone else. Not so much energy being put out to get a shot off - which effects the defensive intensity/energy you play with.

You also have to realize that the supporting cast for Tim & Parker is a few levels below the other legit playoff teams. They literally have nobody else on the roster that creates their own shot.

I've always said you can't judge a supertsar for not winning titles if he doesn't have a supporting cast thats close to the compeition your playing.

I don't blame Garnett for all the losing in Minnesota - he didn't have supporting casts around him to win. However, looking at the Lakers this past year with Kobe - they did have the talent but still failed. Two different things. If Kobe doesn't win a ring this year there has to be some serious doubts that he can lead a championship team as the main guy.

Anyways, you gotta have comparable supporting casts to the best teams in the league. It's rare a superstar can lead his team to a playoff series victory if they have a D+ supporting cast compared to the other team who has a A- supporting cast.
