etc etc ... as multiple people who dont have blinders on know, these wins against cavs etc yawn.
we gotta show we can hang w/ the big boys.
i mean yes, we will make the playoffs. yes we have a shot. but same thing since our last championship... we dont have the x-factor or the juice to hang in crunch time. for whatever reason. and the games against big teams show it.
and no , winning once against a team w/ winning record isnt what im talking about. im talking about consistently competing against the big teams. we dont do it.
like i said. it depends on ur interpretation of overlooked. yea they are not talking about the spurs; and they sure as hell will see the spurs in the playoffs and being a factor. but we all see we cant win against the big teams as of now
