The Line in the Sand

This series is going to be a doozy.  It’s going to be so incredibly close, and as such, I find it hard to blame anyone for almost any prediction they churn out.  But, for the record, let’s see who’s on “our” side, and who is a disrespectin’ hater.  Yeah.

And some others:

If I messed up your name, your blog, your prediction, or your link, let me know.

    Best thing ever: “They really pulled it together,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “Besides Cleveland, and maybe L.A., they’re playing better than anybody.”

    From Pop’s mouth. Pop. High praise. I disagree, but it made me really happy.

    BTW, as a Mavs fan, I’ve always had problems with the Spurs. But I’ve never really hated them. How can you hate Pop and Duncan? Those guys are so cool.

  • Victor

    Oh. And I know Dirk thinks that was a buncha bull. I disagree with him too. I think Pop said it with a bit of sincerity.

  • Shayan

    I’m in Toronto so the Raps are my home team, but Dirk is my favourite player. Just for the record, I say Mavs in 6.

    Whoever said Spurs in 5 (there were 2, i think), please call me. I wanna get whatever it is you are smoking
