Finals Preview?

RedsArmyAdmin February 8, 2009 Uncategorized 10 Comments on Finals Preview?

The San Antonio Spurs are in town today to take on the defending champs.  The Spurs have a defensive mentality, dominant big man, quick-as-lightning point guard, and a wing that is capable of scoring in bunches.  So they're exactly the kind of team that can make it through the west and come back here in June.

Of course, I'm hyping this game up because Chuck and I will be going.  And I'm calling it a potential Finals preview because it will piss off those idiot Laker fans that continue to try to spam us.  Face it, Laker fans.  The Spurs are good enough to beat you.  Your Finals berth is not guaranteed.

Anyway, since Chuck and I will be at the game, that means we won't be carrying on our new tradition of live blogging these afternoon games.  However, you can still have some fun with us on Twitter.  I'll be posting some observations from the game, and maybe even a few pictures.   Or, if you don't have a Twitter account (or if you don't want to set one up), you can go to our forums.

This also means the post-game update will be a little late.  Bear with us.  We'll have to sober up before coming home.  Hopefully we'll all be celebrating.   Half the Spurs haven't played in a week.  Duncan, Ginobili, Parker and Finley all sat out Tuesday's game… so they haven't played since Monday.  Meanwhile, we'll have to see if KG's back is an issue after he got pushed from behind in the Knicks game.

  • Lakers will annihilate the Spurs.
    They were supposed to be better than us.
    The Celtics were supposed to be better than us.
    The Cavs were supposed to be better than us.
    We haven’t done squat yet, but don’t write off the Lakers. Beat team in the league.

    Oh and Matt Bonner having a career day, and it been like “a home game” for him because he got home cooking from his moms didnt exactly help…that was a deciding factor, and its too bad we dont have roger mason instead of tony the brick allen

    What about Brad Miller? Is he available? He’d be a great big that can hit the open J, pass down low. He’s the body we need. Any chance we pry him from Sac with walker/giddens and cash kind of move?

    The Spurs squad has been resting since Monday night, so the oldies could be at their best today.
