NO TEAM with Parker and Ginobli has low entertainment value. And I guess Finley popping something like 9 3's against Denver was a snore fest too. And considering they can win scoring 82 against Denver as well as they can scoring 110 against Phx, means they are THE most adaptable team in the playoffs.

Like wallstreet said, don't just re-type the espn hype, check out the games.

Almost everyone can score 100 on the Suns. They run and gun with almost zero defense so every team scores alot on them. Most of the time Suns just score more.

Not sure if Spurs are boring other than they run their offense so well it just seems kinda boring. They are a team built for the playoffs and more than likely it will be Spurs/Pistons in the finals. Time will tell.

The reason I jumped at that post so fast is that we heard that crap last year. And while I'm usually not the conspiracy type, I personally think that all the media sentiment against another Spurs/Pistons finals last year cost both teams during the playoffs. Duncan and Ginobli damn near fouled out on touch fouls by half time in all their games against Dallas, and you could have set up a legal residence for Wade at the foul line during the Heat's run through the playoffs last year.

I just don't want to see ESPN leading that same charge this year. Which unfortunately they've already started doing. Heres a line from PTI yesterday...

"looks like we may be heading for another spurs/pistons final, are the playoffs already doomed?..."

Nice...

I see your over in the UK... So its easy for you guys to just "talk Schumacher".

For us...not so much! It aint so easy to "talk Schumacher" without asking questions about "it".

And the only way things stay calm around here is if we aviod talking about "it".

Donít be salty because you have to watch your guy make cell phone commercials and not continue playing in the playoffs. I never said the Bulls were going to beat the Pistons or that they were that damn good all I said is that the HEAT are OVERRATED and done.....and if these suckie Bulls swept them then that holds water. Good day sir!!!



Ohhh yeah the MI3 Rocks!!!!

Wow. That kinda sucks don't it. In the playoffs they should let the guys play and not call so many weak fouls. Let the guys play.

I stand by what I wrote. It comes from watching a boat-load of games. I would rather be racing, but my local club is a little slack on that front. Basketball is entertainment stand-in.

I would be happy to run the Mi3, if there was a guy at my local races with a huge selection of parts. Xray has that here.
