Neither Dallas or Phoenix is beating the Lakers in the first round, so it's very unlikely that either of those teams will play San Antonio in the playoffs this year.

If Dallas or Phoenix get up to the #7 seed it could happen since both have a shot against Denver at #2, then the Spurs in the second round or the Spurs at #2 in the first round. Still, it doesn't seem to likely to me.

Least season there was some talk of manu getting mvp, he was beast before he got hurt. He really hasn't played this season, he was either hurt or 'recovering' the whole time.


Guess this is the beginning of the end for a dynasty.

Yeah thats what I think. If Dallas can get the 7 seed they could beat the nuggets and utah could definitely beat the lakers in a series. We will see how the seedings shape up soon.

Ginobili has a wee bit to do with that. The Spurs are still good but it's obtuse to think Ginobili has no affect on matchups.

That injury looks more than a game type injury .

I wonder if it will threaten his career

Anybody out there with a medical background about Ginobili's injury ?

For the Nuggets? Yeah Ginobili has something to do with it. The Jazz couldn't beat the Spurs if they sent the player's grandmothers out there. It's a mental thing with the Jazz.

The Nuggets would have a shot, but with Melo's playoff struggles and Chauncey's recent playoff struggles (he hasn't looked like he's had much left in the tank come playoff time the last few years) I'm not sure they beat the Spurs with or without Ginobili.

I would say they have stepped down a lot now. I'm not sure if Manu playing with the injury would even help them though.

At least they know he's not playing. Spurs now, know how the Rockets felt earlier this year when we went through the T-Mac drama.

You mean they weren't going to have an easy time? The Lakers have a cake walk to the Finals this year.

Yeah and they won't have to really worry. They can be on cruise control all the way to the finals.

We'll see, but I'm looking at it more from the Spurs perspective. Ginobili has been a huge part of their success since he came into the league. He's been a key cog in what makes them "The Spurs" that gives everyone trouble. Take him away and saying they'll still be giving teams trouble because they are "The Spurs" is no different than saying the same thing if Duncan or Parker were out.

As for the Nuggets, everyone and their grandmother is assuming by default that the Nuggets are no different than they have been the past five seasons. Which is fine. It's going to be up to them to prove differently... I really don't know if they will or not.
