Last Friday before game two in Los Angeles, I wrote that the Lakers are the team that should really be nervous. Now its the Spurs turn, down 1-2, going into tonight’s game four. But there is plenty of anxiety to go around for both teams. Buck Harvey writes (“Lakers lack of muscle only historic“): Manu Ginobili can’t be any better than he was Sunday. Kobe Bryant can be. And the…

Game 2 recap and last Friday’s Steve Mason show. Blarg.

“I blame myself for these two losses. It should be 1-1. My mind is not fatigued. I need to step up. It will be different in Game 3.”–Manu Ginobili “I think being out of gas had somewhat of an effect, but not as much as the good play of the Lakers. We definitely have to have more people playing better to get this done. We thought our last game was…

During TNT’s “Inside the NBA,” at the end of game one between the Spurs and Lakers, Reggie Miller was ready to call the series. “This is very reminiscent of when the Spurs beat the Suns in game one in the first round series. Emotionally it took everything out of Phoenix and they could not regroup in that series. I don’t think the Spurs can regroup, being up 20 points in…

Long time readers of SpursDynasty know that Bramlet Abercrombie is a big believer in voodoo. In keeping with his ritual of bringing down the wrath of the vodun on the opponent, Bramlet has supplied us this downloadable PDF.

I know this will come off immature, but all in all yesterday might have been one of the 50 worst days of my life. Probably 30 of those involve sports, in one way or another. The whole day was filled with bad omens. I was scheduled to do this radio interview with some LA Times Lakers blog, I think, and it was supposed to be like 20 minutes long and…

That’s what Gregg Popovich said, referring to last night’s loss to the Lakers, but he might as well have been talking about Manu Ginobili. Johnny Ludden writes: [Manu Ginobili] had a long red scratch on his left shoulder, another on his waist, and one of the fingernails from his trusted shooting hand was missing, battle scars all. Each step toward the shower seemed to bring only more pain. Brent Barry…

Yesterday I posed the question to SpursDynasty readers, “Spurs or Lakers? How many games?” So far 82 have answered, and more than half say, “Spurs in 6.” TheLakersNation.com posted the same question and got the same answer, only in reverse – Lakers in 6. No serious fan would believe that either of these teams could sweep this series, and no fans of either team should want to see this series…

Granted, some of us really don’t care what Lakers fans think. I’m a lifelong Spurs fan, first and foremost, but I am also an NBA fan. If the Spurs weren’t marching towards their fifth title, I would still be watching these playoffs. I appreciate that some other fans are just as fanatical about their team as I am about mine. So with that in mind, here are what Lakers fans…
