As a non-Spurs fan, lemme give y'all some perspective:
The only reasons y'all didn't win were ...
1) TD was hurt all year (despite playing 80 games) and never fully healed, plus
2) Ginobili missed a shot at the end of regulation in game 7 that he makes 99% of the time.
Quit whining about the refs, etc. - the officiating sucked, but it comes off as sour grapes. The ball just didn't bounce your way.
Bottom line: you have the best 3-man core and the best front office in the league. With a summer of rest and your GM's usual tweaking, you'll be the favorites in 06-07, 07-08 and probably 08-09.
