I assumed that everyone old enough has done military service to this country (guess not) and you're right, unless you've been there, "Inside your wire" wouldn't have any meaning to you. South Bristol is in Santa Ana but now I'm in Carlsbad Village Drive headed to San Diego and gaining ground.

Well at least you spelled Spurs correctly however it’s a name and should’ve been capitalized along with Suns, you misspelled Phoenix though, "win," the proper word should have been "beat" and why would you want people destroyed? Adolf Hitler did that before you and I were born besides there's enough violence in this World already. There’s a big difference between hate and dislike, hate is a powerful word, remember that. Stay in school pardner!

Everyone hates the spurs because we've had outstanding winning records for the last 10 seasons. If teams came into the AT&T center and beat my team on a consistant basis then I would also have serous discontent for that team. Ask people in SA what they think about the Lakers. People don't like the spurs because we beat their favorite teams year after year with our boring defense first style of play.

"However"

Any mature intelligent basketball fan should have RESPECT for the Spurs. Popaviches coaching style and discipline has forced all other teams in the NBA specifically the Western Conference to take their defensive game up a notch. As an outcome the Western conference is greatly out performing the East and coaches and players are having to work harder to compete. The spurs make other teams better period... This team everyone hates has transformed the defensive game.

Regarding dirty plays

A bunch of whiney people cry when their team looses and take a few hard fouls out of context. Grow up.. Techs happen all over the NBA durning the playoffs and the spurs don't hold any specific Technical foul record so that is not a valid argument.
