Buck up, Spurs fans.

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.

Refreshing to hear the thoughts of a Laker fan, for whom i have a newfound respect for after dealing with Mavericks idiots for the past few weeks.

You're right though. The ball didn't bounce our way the entire series and we still hung in there for 7 games. After a few tweaks to the roster, and god-willing an injury-free season, we should be back in contention (even though we're always in contention). I miss the Spurs/Lakers rivlary already.

Gee, thanks LoyalLaker. I was feeling bad about the loss but now that I've wasted 30 seconds of my life reading a Laker fan's plea for perspective, I feel much better.

Thanks LoyalLaker, and all Laker fans around the world. You guys are the best!!

Look, Dude - I follow a team that went from 4 Finals in 5 years to the lottery just because of the egos of our players. You don't have jack to be bitter or sarcastic about. You have a great team. Be happy.

He's right, we have a great team. It just wasn't our year, for whatever reason.

reffinging sucked for games 3 and 4.

Game 7, we just got out played and were fortunate enough to make it a real game by the end of the game.

P.S. Next time you call me out - do it in a thread I'll actually view. I don't read or post in the GDTs (those are for homers and kneejerkers).

Have you?

Just because TD played well doesn't mean his foot magically healed in the playoffs. He will need the offseason to fully recover.

So I'm left to assume that "beeyotch" is a term of endearment I can throw around as I please.

Tacit permission, thanks Dizz.

You're still an ass, that was funny, but you're still one. All you do is complain about lack of class here, no respect to the Mavs, etc, etc, whine, whine. If you want undying love and for the Mavs to be treated like some kind of team of the century, stay on the Mav boards, I'm sure they will give you everything you want. The only reason for you to still be here after the Mavs dispatched the Spurs is to behave like a troll, is that what you call maturity? If it is, then I feel completely fine about calling you a beeeoootch, cuz that is what you're behaving like. So, then, Nothing is up Beeeeotch, what is up with you?
