Re: “Game 4: Spurs 93, Grizzlies 86 — And So it Ends

San Antonio survives as a small market because it is a city welcoming and hospitable to all. Players are often wary, then come to like our city more and more, even to the point, like Duncan, of accepting less to be part of this community. San Antonio is a seminal part of Texas, yes, but it is also majority Hispanic and also hosts the largest parade honoring M L King in the country. There is no reason that Memphis cannot do the same.

Re: “Game 3: Spurs 104, Grizzlies 93 (OT): So Close But Yet So Far

Interesting comments by Grizz fans, mostly correct, I think, except for comparing regular season stats to playoff performance, which can be deceiving, as Pop has learned by saving his starters. I like the Grizz a lot, esp. Randolph, who I see as in the same position as David Robinson before Duncan. Get this guy some help. I look forward to another close, exciting playoff caliber NBA game.

Re: “Griz-Spurs Game 3 Preview: Five Takes

Nice analysis, but it does not address the fact that the Grizz just don't have the championship caliber players needed to win an NBA title. Tony Allen's antics don't help team cohesion either. Grizz could be very dangerous with a playmaker and a couple of true scorers.

Re: “Griz-Spurs Game 2 Preview: Everything is Everything

Tough game. This will be a heck of a series. I like Randolph. It's unfair to expect him to carry the offense. If you ever want to trade him....

Re: “Griz-Spurs Game 2 Preview: Everything is Everything

To Grove: I can't deny that the Grizz play well against crippled playoff teams. The Spurs don't exactly have anything to whine about. They play clean, exciting basketball. And mostly win. It's almost showtime. Break a leg.

Re: “Griz-Spurs Game 2 Preview: Everything is Everything

GroveReb84: The Spurs can very well play contact and physical ball, and they can also run the court and play long ball. That's American basketball. What it is that a one-dimensional teams plays, I don't know, perhaps Russian ball. But it's no recipe for success in the NBA. Frankly, basketball is a game for super players, and your team is lacking. Spurs in six.

Re: “Griz-Spurs Game 2 Preview: Everything is Everything

As a Spurs fan, I will be watching to see how closely the Griz stick to their game plan. The Spurs know that they have the game in hand when teams, when frustrated, try to intimidate the Spurs--and thus abandon their game plan. The Griz are like the Spurs in many ways, and have a great future. One tip: look for more help from foreign teams--Parker, Genobili, Splitter, even Duncan (Virgin Islands) did not develop here.
