and so the ESPN marketing/dissing begins....

You guys catch SC after the game? An eight-minute expose on the Cavs and Wizards and King James, and then a "nice" 60 second script on the Spurs and Kings. Gonna be a lonnnnnnnng way to go----"How great are the lakers.....How great are the Pistons....Oh, and don't forget the Spurs" grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

and don't tell me to get over it--I enjoy the ranting.

Personally, I couldn't give two craps what ESPN thinks or how they market or don't market the Spurs. The lack of respect from the national media is nothing new and they don't award the championship that's decided on the floor. The Spurs are great, and they have 3 banners at the AT&T Center to prove it. They don't need media ass-kissing to prove it, and if winning more titles pisses the likes of Stephen A. Smith off, so be it.

Bingo.

They can say all they want.

As long as the Commish is giving us the trophy in June and handing out the rings and raising banners in November, I could give a rats ass what ESPN says.

The more we complain and whine over "not getting our props" from BSPN, ABC, Jim Rome, etc... the smaller and "be-otch-ier" we seem to be as fans. Come on, who gives a rats a$$ what the media says or doesnt say. As Rome always says, Scoreboard.

they only showed 60 seconds of it because we all had just watched 3 hours of it. Why show what we've already seen? Esp. when it was a blowout.

Hey! It's ESPN. We all know what they are made of.

Their opinions, comments, promo's are meaningless.

The question I have asked many times before, how can a network like TNT whose bread and butter is reruns of old TV shows be so much better then ESPN where they do nothing but sports????

who cares, getting old already with the complaining. of course the series only came down to buzzer beaters all the time, 2 all stars going at each other scoring 35 plus each just about every game. come on. if lebron was on the spurs, it would be all spurs....so who cares

I think ESPN has a texas bias anyway. Besides not any spurs coverage, they do the same things to the Mavs, Astros, Texans, and Rangers. They had a lot of egg on their face after pumping up USC as the best team ever for 20 nights in a row completely ignoring Texas. Oh well, as a previous poster said. SCOREBOARD!

THe thing that pisses me off is that because they do THAT, the Spurs get the shaft on scheduling.

IT'S THE LACK OF EXPOSURE THAT PERPETUATES THE MYTH THAT THIS TEAM ISN'T WORTH WATCHING!!!

Other than that...screw em.
