A Spurs "Game of Thrones" reference by Simmons

http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/...thrones-part-1

"I've much liked my head. I don't want to see it removed just yet."

To the Spurs, who kept it simple by re-signing Duncan at a discount ($30 million for three years), then used the extra money to re-sign Danny Green and Boris Diaw. You know when you say, "Let's run it back?" When you blow the Western Conference Finals because Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka shot 18-for-20 on the road in Game 5 (something that, it's safe to say, will NEVER happen again), then Durant finished you off that same game by doing everything short of shooting flames out of his ass, then you couldn't buy a call to save your life in Game 6 … and suddenly you were heading home wondering what the hell just happened. Personally, I think the Spurs watched Oklahoma City melt down in the Finals and said to themselves, "We were a very good team that may have just been unlucky." Either way …

"Anyone can be killed."

I'm firing every editor we have if they don't destroy my Game 2 Spurs-OKC retro diary from Grantland's archives soon. Greatness is bubbling over in the Western Conference finals - Grantland

I agree OKC got very lucky with these two ibaka and perkins however a little bit of defense in our parts(spurs) would had been helpful, we need just better defense.

My favorite quote was a link in the article to a piece during the SAS-OKC series, talking about the signing of Diaw.

It mentions that Diaw was a bit out of shape while in Charlotte.
