Why don't you spell out whom you are talking about so someone can understand?
I know it's hard, but follow along closely, okay? I was responding to another person's comment in which they were talking about the Spurs, so naturally I am referring to the Spurs in this post. Dude, wake up...I'm not the only one who thinks they are robotic and boring...it's a widely held opinion. Now at least their known as dirty, so maybe they'll shed the 'boring' label.

You think you're so smart, yet you dont know the difference between "they're" and "their". You dont even sound like a fan of the game, it was a couple of years ago that the Spurs stopped using THEIR "4 down" play 75% of the time, which was dump it down to Tim. They have been using a motion offense since then, and I haven't heard any analyst call them boring since then.
And frankly my dear, we dont give a damn what people think of us. the parades are great either way. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Ya'll better watch out! The grammar police from Texas are watching! You sound like a huge fan of parades...I bet you like rainbows too. I agree *they're* boring (yes, the Spurs)(yes, the San Antonio Spurs)(yes, of the NBA).

Horry is a "thug" and always has been. Bowen is a dirty player and I have seen Duncan doing a head butt on Stoudemire. All this crap is for the birds! Why are the playoffs supposed to be "more physical" than the regular season, and why don't the refs call all the fouls? I guess the Western conference is just practicing up to play the Pistons.
Ha thats is a good one. Sweet

Robotic and boring is how many sport fans describe the San Antonio Spurs!! Why? Very simple, Coach Popovich plays the game and doesnít allow his players to fly 20 feet through the air to get the ball into the hoop. Not that the players arenít capable of doing it, once upon a time Manu Ginobili was the European slam dunk champion of the World.

For your information, studies have been conducted on the City of San Antonio, the Spurs organization and their fan base to determine what makes them winners. For this reason, itís a widely known fact that numerous franchises throughout the NBA are now structuring their teams using the Spurís profile.

So I ask any fan, what would you rather have in your city a World Championship or a team with finesse (a la Phoenix Suns)? Elementary my dear Watson!!

Amare & the whole Suns team know the rules about leaving the bench.
So much so, that they tried to deliver the biggest loaf of BS via Amare at the post game interviews after game 4. No one believed Amare's "just getting ready to check into the game" lie.
The decision of the Suns to put aside their integrity, something that Pop and every single Spurs player would never do, cost the Suns their honor.
Amare do the right thing and apologize to the whole NBA and especially your team and fans for a lapse in judgment and maturity. That goes for you to Boris.
Apologize to the NBA for thinking yourself and your team above the rules, apologize to your team for your lack of leadership and maturity and finally apologize to your fans who you let down and turned into the most dirtiest fans in the NBA.
Honor and integrity should be the Suns motto going forward.
