I take what I can
Just like I called it. Not bad to watch after the half (like the season itself supposedly is), though even that pristine endgame rang a little hollow. Resonant and bright, but hollow nonetheless. I also got thrown off by the tomb-like vibe in AAC, unless I missed the part where they explained that Spurs fans comprised at least three quarters of the crowd.
The good stuff: I could never explain what was so terrifically dull about Tony Parker or Jason Terry, both players whom I should have at least some small affinity for. Now, much in the same way that Vince Carer nullifies Jason Richardson, it won't be long before Parker especially is exposed as a pretender to the throne of dynamism.
While everyone else is stumbling over themselves to annoint three or four hard-nosed ensembles, I'll always remember these playoffs for the three freakishly talented PG's who now I'll now go out of my way to watch.
I can make Round 1 into the regular season, and now I'll turn your precious Round 2 into the Summer Leagues!!!!!
