Are you saying the Suns didn't deserve any of the superlatives they got? I think they deserved them all (well, I might have gone with Rick Carlisle as COY, but that's just me, and I think the coach with three first names, Mike Dan Tony, was a worthy pic) and that might take a little thunder from your theory.
I think David Stern is OK with the Spurs getting this far. They have a great player (Tim Duncan) and two international stars (Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili). I think the public will soon forget all about the boring Spurs and soon realzie that they are not really boring. Manu going around-the-world in crunch time of Game 2 of the WCF might start killing the "boring" label.
