http://poundingtherock.com/story/2007/4/21/151941/787 Man, this took a lot of work. I am exhausted. Trying to squeeze a productive chat out of Matthew is like playing ball with Shaq during January. You keep waiting for him to work himself open, to exert any energy at all so that you can set him up, and he simply refuses to budge. If you don’t think Wade will eventually be making the same snide about the…

God, what a depressing week it’s been. First the Imus thing, then the Virginia Tech killings. Are you like me? Did you see the picture of the killer on one of the news shows and think to yourself, “HEY! I think I went to high school with that guy!” What, too soon? Yeah, I’m quite proud of that joke, thanks. These are the times when I’m glad I don’t believe…

Sunday’s preview of the Western Conference Finals was shaping up to be a game for the ages, a hard fought battle between the two best teams in the league. Then petty squabbling between a star player and a veteran referee ruined everything. For those who missed it — anyone? — Tim Duncan was ejected late in the third quarter after being called for two technical fouls less than two minutes…

Game 78 Vs. Sacramento: Spurs 109, Kings 100 Must…blog…on. Hang with me, my pretties, we’re almost there. Just four more totally meaningless-“Oh wait maybe if the Suns lose a couple they’re meaningful”-“No wait, never mind, it’s not gonna happen, they are meaningless” games. Should I be concerned that our defense was crummy for the third straight game? Well, we have played an awful lot of tinyball of late, (19 minutes…

The NBA playoffs don’t start for another week, but if the current seeds* hold, over the next six days we’ll get to see previews of each of the four first round series and possibly the semis and finals in the Western Conference. The only preview game missing is the Spurs against the Suns, and we already know how that one turned out. Here are the remaining games to look forward…

Is it just me, or does it feel like the San Antonio Spurs are marching towards a fourth NBA title? Things have certainly been good for the Spurs lately, and can only get better. After their win against the Kings tonight, the Spurs have the best record in the league since the All-Star Break, winning 22 of 25. That includes victories against the Pistons, the Jazz and the Suns. Back…

Michael recaps the Warriors and Blazers games over at PtR. And shares some interesting thoughts about Don Imus and a recent encounter with the female proprietor of a certain Spurs message board. Check it out.

“And they have Tim Duncan. Put Tim on our team, and I think we might be a pretty good team.”–Don Nelson, Golden State Warriors Head Coach “To me, he’s the most valuable player in this league. Hands down. He’s the ultimate team player (who) goes unnoticed. I mean, yeah, he fills up the stat sheet … but it’s all the other stuff that he does and (doesn’t) allow to happen.”–Baron…

Not many writers can say they’ve had a byline in the national newspaper of record, and even fewer can say they were paid for the pleasure. Our very own Michael Erler has joined the ranks of professional writers, as one of eight college seniors chosen to blog for the New York Times, “The Graduates: Eight College Seniors Face the Future.” In his first piece, “My Alter Ego,” Michael writes: Ever…
