Mike, report the news... don't manufacture it. Yawns have turned to boos?!?!?! In what galaxy are you seeing this? As I read countless articles about this series online, I can't find one artile that remotely expresses your opinion. Stop trying to manufacture something that's not there. Boo to you.

Talk about BS. I love the way these morons portray the Spurs as thugs. If Bruce Bowen were so bad, why did the coaches name him and Duncan to the All Defensive team? Why has Bruce never been suspended? Bruce kneeing Nash in the groan was an accident as was Manu nearly getting his eye poked out. This is a physical game. GO Spurs GO

Suns have a great team just not a championship team. Every person who has ever done what Amare and Boris did since this rule was put in place has been suspended. How would they ever enforce it again if they didn't suspend them this time? If they had better defense and a little more maturity they might be playing Sunday. I bet we don't see anybody leave the bench in a platoff game for a long time after this. Great games though, kind of wish there was a game 7.

Personally, I don't see the San Antonio Spurs as nothing more than a great team, this was proven in last night outing with the Phoenix Suns. With or without Amare Stoudemire and Boris Diaw in the lineup the Suns just couldn’t contain the Spurs. Too much firepower coming from Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan; let alone trying to contain him! The onslaught in the third quarter was just phenomenal and a little too much for the Suns to handle, though they did show a lot of willpower in the final minutes. Bottom line, give credit where credit is due, the Spurs are just too balanced and mature, besides the only ones crying foul are the Suns and those that don’t appreciate good basketball. Robotic and boring is how some describe the Spurs! Why? Very simple, because Coach Greg Popovich plays the game and doesn’t allow his players to fly 20 feet through the air to get the ball into the hoop. Not that the players aren’t capable of doing it, once upon a time Manu Ginobili was the European slam dunk champion of the World. So if you prefer to watch individuals fly through the air, maybe you need to switch the channel to wrestling. The question here is; “what would you rather have in your city a World Championship or a team with finesse?”
