Game 5 Utah @ San Antonio: Spurs 109, Jazz 84 (4-1) We’re in the Finals again, yippee!!! At long last, the guys get to their long deserved moment in the sun, basking in the glow of being crowned champions of the ungodly stacked Western Conference in front of their appreciative fans. (AP Photo/Eric Gay) Can you feel my excitement? Can you sense my enthusiasm? Can you visualize my rock hard…

We should know tonight whether the Spurs will face the Cavaliers or the Pistons in the NBA Finals. Either King James holds court at home and it’s over, or the Pistons win and drag the boy-King back to the Palace for game seven. Call me crazy, but I still think the Pistons will win in seven. Before LeBron’s epic performance on Thursday night, I thought a Spurs-Pistons Final was inevitable….

It’s not magic (or magnets), David Blaine. The Spurs are headed to the NBA Finals. I ran across this ad on a non-sports related website yesterday afternoon. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I might say that the NBA has been planning on a Spurs-Pistons Finals ever since the Mavericks and Heat were eliminated. But if the fix is in, I don’t get it. Isn’t this the matchup that no…

In case you missed it, Michael recaps game 4 on PtR, “Manu Ginobili Was the Second Gunman on the Grassy Knoll.” Nice recap and a clever title, Michael. But I think the second gunman was this guy.

Game 3 San Antonio @ Utah: Jazz 109, Spurs 83 (2-1) I stare blankly at the imposing box score. 109 points against. 66 in the second half. 25-39 (64%) FGs allowed the last two quarters. 17/19 Assists to turnovers for us, 26/12 for them. Our bench outscored 38-29. Five minutes of run for one Beno Udrih. None of these things make for a pretty picture. So of course I can’t…

The NBA is soooooooooooooooooooo shady… Paul Allen is planning to offload the Portland team after realizing you can’t just buy all the free agents to win a title. Seattle has such citywide apathy for the Sonics’ crowing to get a brand new facility that there is literally a citywide vote to NOT subsidize the team, regardless of threats to move the franchise away. Now, with the Pac NW poised to…

This is sad and bizarre on so many levels, nevermind the article it refers to. Bill Simmons’ wet dream. {Thanks to Aaron S at For the Love of Sports for this.}

Game 1 Utah @ San Antonio: Spurs 108, Jazz 100 (1-0)Let’s see… I don’t have to write anymore term papers, sit through lectures, or con my way to a passing grade in español anymore. I got the interminable graduation ceremony out of the way (the highlight, by far, was a speech given by this Asian gentleman; the head of our department or something, dressed like the Pope, whose accent reminded…
