I love discussing NBA with Warrior fans because they are more humble and aren't homers, and tend to appreciate other talent.

Which section can I make threads on other NBA topics?

In the Sports forum is probably the best place but the Warriors forum gets most attention and a bit of talk on other teams and the nba in general is alright

Yeah, about a year and a half ago, I tried sparking some conversation regarding other teams in the sports section. I'd love to discuss other teams in greater detail, but I'm not sure how many users actually check areas aside from the main forum.

A few of us actually check those other sections. Go ahead if you want to discuss other teams, lakerfool.

Allow me to start - Fuk those San Antonio Spurs are a great and successful team! Boring as church mass (not that I attend or intend on attending the fuking thing) and as American as Souvlaki :mrgreen:


Phoenix Suns - Great team, GIVE US AMARE

I, personally, think its hillarious that the Spurs are finally getting praised as a "dynasty" now.

I'll tell you why the Spurs are boring: because they've never made ONE risky move in their entire, heralded tenure on top. Never.

When was the last time you saw the Spurs take a chance? When was the last time they made an earth-shattering trade? Or signed a risky free agent? Or ran an out-of-bounds play that ended in an ally-oop? When was the last time the Spurs ran the ball down the floor consistently? Or made headlines because one of their players said something controversial?

The Spurs have had two non-boring spots for their team in the past 10 seasons: (1) Bruce Bowen is the dirtiest player in the league and continually gets away with "accidents" that no other player causes... and (2) Robert Horry's PG-13 bump on Steve Nash, who did his best Shawn Michaels impression to sell the hit.

That's it. Don't be mistaken by this newfound reverse psychology that people like Tom Tolbert try and use (y'know what I mean, where they claim that "people who REALLY watch basketball understand the Spurs are great at rotations and its not boring to REAL basketball fans"). :roll:

Tom Tolbert. Tim Legler. Choke already. The Spurs are boring as hell. Get over it.

And why is that a bad thing?. Winning is the only thing that matters. The objective is the championship, not playing to make fans. Are they boring as hell?. Damn sure they are... but I wouldn't care if I were a Spurs fan.

The Spurs fans are childish and spoiled. They didn't even show up to any playoff games until the NBA Finals.

Sure, the #1 objective is to win... but I think the absolute worst sacrifice is to win at the expense of being even mildly entertaining. Even "non-entertaining" teams in the 80's, like the Bad Boys Pistons or the Fundamental Celtics, were entertaining to watch purely because they had mastered the sport of basketball. In my humble opinion, if you put the San Antonio Spurs of late against any great basketball dynasty, including the old 60's Celtics, Jordan's Bulls, Showtime Lakers, Shaq/Kobe Lakers, Bird Celtics, ect... the Spurs are up sh*t's creak. Easy.

Very true. Yet... no one, except their fans, cares about what the Spurs do or accomplish. They keep winning, no one other than San Antonio will be watching.

Yeah, and you can't tell me its because people don't care about basketball. Michael Jordan glued us to our seats 10 years ago... and even the Shaq & Kobe Lakers were America's favorite team, for a time.

Now, David Stern is frantically searching for a new lineup to shove down everyone's throats. He tried the Pistons. He's BEEN trying the Spurs. He tried the Cav's. He even tried the Heat for one year.

David Stern would be smart to try and push the Suns and the Warriors, two of the NBA's most excited (and best) basketball teams...

Stern wants to have "morally" acceptable individuals in the limelight. The Spurs don't have headcases and are a secure bunch of people so they get favoured somewhat. As far as entertainment, it doesn't get better than the Suns and Warriors and Stern will likely see the revenue possibility of these teams having some success

That's whats so twisted about it.

The Spurs are considered apple-pie-wholesome, yet their best defender is the league's dirtiest player...

The reason I dont like the Spurs is that they are sooo boring. Low scoring, not much action. Dull.

They play the game like how it used to be played. Focus on defence not letting your opponent score. I guess that is how the game is supposed to be played, but it is certainly boring.

Well said.

No one gives a damn about the Spurs, and the Spurs don't give a damn about what others think. The second part sounds motivational, but yet like I said... we don't give a damn what they do and how they do it.
