1 & 1A in the NBA’s Western Conference

Four months ago, on December 25, 2007, this corner correctly identified for you the best 2 teams in the Western Conference this year, before either had yet amassed the top W-L record in their half of the NBA.

Legitimate Contenders in the NBA: Part II

The reigning champs will try to stave off elimination tonight, as the soon-to-be DOMINANT power in the West seeks to close-out its opponent at home. 

Given that the NBA’s Head Office has now acknowledged a two-shot foul SHOULD have been called on this decisive play at the end of Game 4 …

it would not surprise in the least to see the Spurs … either:

1) Go down fighting like champions, in a last possession game, this evening,

OR

2) Push this series back to San Antonio for a Game 6.

It’s going to take a special team to dethrone this group of Spurs …

and these Lakers (even without Andrew Bynum) just might be THAT team.

    Even so, I call BS.
    That was a stupid move by the NBA. Where’s the apology for Odom’s block that was incorrectly called a goal-tend? Or the ‘sorry’ for the missed reset of the clock?
    There are literally hundreds of blown calls in each and every game. To go and apologise for one? Silly, silly people.

    Good game tho’, huh?

    Based on how the Spurs played in Game 4, I thought they were extremely fortunate to have a shot to tie it up in the final few seconds.

    Like Gregg Popovich said, “The better team won.”
