The Lakers who've struggled with an inexperienced 8th seeded Thunder at home with the exception of the first quarter of Game 1 are the team that's supposed to win a championship?
Lakers, early knock out before Finals
Anyways, great game by the Spurs. I'm a bit torn on this series. I love the Spurs and would love to see them go out with one final bang. Duncan getting his fifth ring and possibly fourth Finals MVP. They've been the team of the decade and the epitome of greatness and true, fundamental basketball. On the other hand, I'd like to see Dirk and JKidd get back to the Finals and get their well deserved rings. I'm also probably one of the very few people outside of Dallas fans who actually like Mark Cuban and I wouldn't mind seeing him hoist the Larry O'Brien trophy. Dammit, I wanted the Spurs to end up 5th or 8th so they could avoid the Mavs until the WCF.
This should be a real entertaining series that I could see going the distance. Whoever comes out of it I'll be satisfied with. May the better team win.
