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…

Here’s the Game 7 recap and Game 1 preview, and the link is there for my radio spot on The Steve Mason Show on ESPN Radio 710 AM in LA. It was recorded the day of Game 7. I’ll also be on the show this Wednesday and Friday at 2:25 p.m. I believe.

By now most Spurs fans have heard that “mechanical problems kept the Spurs’ plane on the runway in New Orleans for seven hours” last night. But how many fans realize that the Spurs charter airline, Champion Air, which boasts of “providing a superior travel experience built around safety and reliability” on its website, has a track record which is far from safe and reliable?

They had packed for Los Angeles. I thought it was an inspired move. But it would seem that New Orleans got the last laugh. Johnny Ludden reports: When the San Antonio Spurs eliminated the New…

Game 7 tips off in the Big Queasy in just a few hours, and it’s time to stop dicking around. I’ll freely admit, in the last couple of years I haven’t been the same righteous Spurs fan that I once was, as the complacence of the Spurs’ four championships (and perennially competitive teams) and the weight of life’s responsibilities have set in. But just for tonight, I’m letting that mad,…

“You’ve just got to be very focused, knowing that you can’t blink, that you can’t let the other team get on a run, get confident on a run. It’s going to be a really tense game with a lot of adrenaline. Fans are going to be going nuts. So it’s going to be a very fun game to play.” “We’ll see if we thrive on pressure after Monday’s game. We…

This afternoon, 3:02 p.m. Pacific time, I’m supposed to appear again on The Steve Mason Show on ESPN Radio in L.A. I have no idea what I’m supposed to say.

Second Round Game 6 Vs. New Orleans: Spurs 99, Hornets 80 (3-3) The frustrating, thrilling, maddening thing about sports is how, in an instant, one play changes everything that happened before and everything that will happen next. One unexpected, unpredictable, unscripted moment and suddenly all the storylines and perceptions differ and all your opinions and ideas have to be rethought, reconsidered. One play, an innocent enough looking offensive foul ordinarily,…
