The big discussion during the celebration today in San Antonio was the national media's preoccupation with the "Dynasty" question.

Of course, it's nothing new. The national media bends over backwards all year long to minimize the Spurs.

We think it's all very funny.

Like...the idea that the championship means less because the East sent a weak team to the finals.

Or...even funnier...that the championship means less because the television ratings were down...:)

Or, because the Kleenex Suns found another way to lose to the Spurs...."but really were the better team"...:)

Whatever.....

The Media wants the Showtime Lakers back and despises any team that plays defense.

Being in LA or Chicago or New York or Miami makes the media guys feel more like big shots than staying in the La Quinta in San Antonio to cover basketball.

I hate to break it to you guys....thats YOUR problem.

We laugh in your silly faces and will see you...again...next year.
