Singin' Till That Day
New column up at the Haus, where I try once again to pin down my dislike of the Spurs. Or at least bring it to a wider audience.
I couldn't really use "tautology" in it, but that's the point that seemed new to me. Namely: Spurs' style can be described as no-frills winning. This is compelling insofar as it yields a win. These wins are of interest only to those who already want the Spurs to win; there is nothing in the means to produce an outsider interest in the end. Ergo, the Spurs exist to fulfill their hometown fans, and everyone else can go to hell. That's not an insult, it's explaining why they're bad for the playoffs in a way that the Warriors or Suns never could be.
