Pop on Top
We here at SpursDynasty have failed you, our fans, the people who don’t pay the salaries we don’t get for doing this site. We have neglected to inform you of an important milestone that occurred last week: the Spurs’ victory over the Mavs was Pop’s 500th victory in the NBA.
I could bore you with stats about how Pop has one of the highest winning percentages of all coaches in NBA history, and how fast he got those 500 wins compared to other great coaches in NBA history, and how his playoff winning percentage is even more impressive, given the higher level of competition in the playoffs. But I won’t do that. If you want to inflict statistical boredom on yourself, click away. Really, there’s only one thing that matters: players know they have to
if they want to win an NBA championship. In a recent poll of NBA players – in which players were not allowed to vote for their own coach, mind you – Pop was voted the best coach in the NBA by a wide margin. Players know these things, people.
In other Dr. Seuss news, although the Spurs’ domination of the West was briefly interrupted when they lost to Sam “I am” Cassell and the Clippers on Tuesday night, they got right back on track last night.
I will shoot it in the key.
Once again, TP nailed the outside shot consistently to help the Spurs bitchslap the Suns. Of course, the game was meaningless since the Suns didn’t have Amare Stoudemire, Steve Nash, Kurt Thomas, or their regular backup point guard, Leandro Barbosa, but it was nice to see TP canning jumper after jumper…AGAIN. I’m telling you people, if I were Jerry Falwell, I would be talking about this as one of the signs of the Apocalypse.
“And a great Beast will rise in the West and destroy all who oppose him with an unstoppable array of shots from all over the court. And you will know the Beast by his number, and the number of the Beast is 9!”
If TP does this in the playoffs, it’s going to be damn hard for any team to beat the Spurs, even with TD not at full strength.
