Alarm Bells

The Spurs lost to The Lakers, without Kobe Bryant, 91-86. The Lakers shot 36 percent from the floor, yet still managed to defeat San Antonio. The Spurs limp into the playoffs losing 7 of their last 12 games.  Manu Ginobili is going to be out for the 1st round. Boris Diaw is gonna be out for at least the first round. Tony Parker, who was having an All-Star season got hurt and is now still recovering from that ankle injury. Teams have to be trying to get to play the Spurs at this point in time. Last year, we would say they were rolling going into the playoffs. This year, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them go down in the first round.

Today, San Antonio signed Tracy McGrady. If alarm bells weren’t going off already, they should be now. The guy lost his athleticism, and he’s coming back from playing in China. Did you know McGrady has played in seven playoff series and won absolutely none of them? Dumping Steve Jackson and now picking up McGrady? I’m not sure that’s gonna help them win playoff games.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
