That's Why I'm a Spurs Fan

Me and my brother have a saying that we use from time to time when our other Texas teams let us down. "That's why I'm a Spurs Fan". The Spurs don't win the championship every year, but I always know they will be competing for it, and at the end of the day I can feel confident that they are doing things the right way. The Aggies, Cowboys and Rangers have left a bad taste in my mouth the last 18 years, but there are my beloved Spurs always right where I expect them to be.

I had a friend at work come up to me today and ask me if I had seen the news about Kobe's 2 year $48 Million contract extension. He was so excited that the Lakers were going to make him the highest paid player yet again. I looked at him and said, "thats why I'm a Spurs fan". Because I distinctly remember Tim Duncan facing a similar situation as Kobe last summer. His decision to take less money is why the Spurs are 12-1 with Duncan struggling, and the Lakers are 7-7 without Kobe.

I just thought I'd share, because people seem to be glorifying a victory for Kobe, when in reality it means he will be on a mediocre team until he retires.

Lakers fans, though ecstatic now, will come down to earth when they realize how this damages their struggle to put together a balanced team.

After 5 rings, and on the brink of retirement, I don't think winning stands atop his priority list. He's done all he can do in the league. The Lakers aren't going to win another championship for awhile. He's just padding his nestegg. And really, the Lakers have no choice but to do it.

That doesn't make sense uwe, all I ever hear about is kobes competitive fire. Why wouldn't winning be his top priority heading into his twilight years? He's making 24 million sitting on the bench today, I don't think he needs the money. I get what you're saying though. That's why you gotta love tad and the spurs I guess.

When you damage an Achilles tendon in basketball (or any sport), that type of injury puts thoughts in your head that weren’t there before. I had a good friend who played basketball at another high school who was 3rd team all Ohio in his sophomore year in basketball and he tore his tendon playing football in his junior year (he was an all sport athlete). When we played against his team late in his senior year, I told him after the game he seemed a little slower in his drive to the rim and looked hesitant in his actions on the floor. He told me about those thoughts in his head and he felt lucky to be able to walk, let alone to play ball again. Of course, that was back in the late 60s and medical treatment and rehab have come a long way since then, but the human body hasn’t changed, just different ways you take care of it. But if the Lakers want to pay Bryant 48 million over 2 years, after his injury, I guess they got some terrific player insurance policies in their back pocket. They could probably land 2-3 pretty good ballplayers, long term, with that kind of dough but what the hey, it’s LA, they know what they’re doing. I just wonder what Dr Jerry Buss would have done. And that's why I'm a Spurs fan too!!

I was there for the Robinson underachievers of the 90s when the Spurs felt like the Cowboys do now. But they always at least won games....and were entertaining to root for. I've been disappointed as a Spurs fan, but never let down.
