It is strange to me that so many persons thought the Suns would beat the SPURS in the first round, again not giving any credit to one of the best couches in NBA history and one of the greatest players of all times. The SPURS don't necessarily have the most talented roster therefore they always stick to Pop's game plans. The commitment to team and individual defense will always set them apart even when they're not proficient offencively. They will go on to win the title with all the so called experts picking against them. They are not the most exiting team to watch but they get the job done which is what we all want to see. The Hornets have a wonderful team lead by an outstanding young player Chris Paul, but I'm afraid thier run will end here. Utah is actually going to beat L.A and whoever wins the West will surely win the NBA title and thats not a knock on the East, the West is that much better (battle tested and don't take days off like the Detroit Pistons who are going to win the East. Go SPURS all the way.................
