Michael Finley went on a profanity laced tirade when asked about the Spurs after practice today. And by that I mean he answered every question about the Spurs in a professional manner. But he still made it clear that this is more than a little more than your every day game.
"I still want to beat them, believe me," Finley said with a smile. "I
don't want to go out and roll over dead for them. It's still my job to
go out there and do my best to give my team the best chance to win the
ball game. Although we're friends, I want to destroy them. I still want
to beat them. That's not going to change. The fact that we're friends,
it's something we can laugh and cheer about before or after the game,
but that 48 minutes, it's all about business."
So no… Finley didn't say he wanted to eat anyone's children. I just wish he did.
I'll be at the game tomorrow with the boys from Project Spurs. We're all gonna be partying in town for a couple of days. So if you're around, you can probably find us on twitter. Let's help show them what Boston is all about.
