Those players being vets has nothing to do with them getting to old now.<quoted text>
most people did say the spurs didnt have a chance to win those all 4 of those titles at some point wether it was at the beginning of the finals or the playoffs.
barry, i will give you that, but not horry. that last season horry was with the spurs was when it was pretty obvious he was done.
and how are their players just now getting older? finley, jacque vaughn, and kurt thomas have been considered a veterans ever since they came to the spurs, bowen has been a veteran for quite a while, and oberto is getting about 6 minutes less this year than what he was last year and thats because he has been sharing more minutes with thomas, bonner, and now gooden. if the spurs lose, then it will not be because of their bench.
yes, i did pay attention to fouls and calls that didnt go the lakers way in that game 1 last year. i would say both teams got pretty much the same through out the game besides the end of it. that last minute and a half, every call seemed to go the lakers way no matter how obvious it was. duncan got hit in the stomach and the arms numerous times but no foul was called. that one time where pau gasol slapped the ball out of duncans hands, he actually hit duncan on the hand, the ball went out but didnt get called, and then gasol hit it out again and crawford said it was out on duncan and a lakers ball. games 2, 3, and 4 were all good reffed games and game 5 barry didnt get the foul where fisher jumped on top of him.
and the spurs being the only team to beat the lakers, i might disagree with that to. i think the hornets may have a chance. but denver, houston, utah, dallas, portland, or any of the other teams, cant see that happening.
the Lakers bench there game is to run, spurs bench will not want to run with them.
You will see when the Lakers and Spurs meet, cause we both know they will meet.
Well tell me then about the calls that You saw that were bad calls against the Lakers?
Sorry the Fisher and barry call, was a good no call, no matter what angle You see the contact was done by barry and when it happened, he was not in the act of shooting, he even dribbled the ball, the cancels the continuation in case a foul would had been called, if barry had not taken a dribble to get fisher while in the air, then Yes I would say it was a foul, but he took the dribble.
The problem with barry was that he moved toward fisher while fisher was in the air, he can't do that, he can't create the contact that way and expect a foul.
The same way I don't see any of those teams taking out S.A., I don't see them taking out the Lakers.
The best 2 teams in the west are Lakers and S.A.
