You need an injury?

I’m listening to my radio on the way to lunch today, and I’m hearing some disturbing stuff. The sports talk radio host says Oklahoma City is going to win the NBA’s Western Conference in 2015.
He then says they’re going to win because San Antonio is going to have injuries; they’ve been incredibly lucky they haven’t had injuries and Oklahoma City is going to win.
I think it was Jim Rome’s sit-in who said that. It wasn’t Jay Mohr because I can’t stand him for more than a minute and ESPN, although hard to bear would probably not roll with something that stupid. We’re not Spurs homers here, but saying its time for that team to have some injuries either means you’re really displaying your rooting interest, or you’re a total bag. I’m betting on the latter.
Maybe replacement dbag broadcaster doesn’t know this but if you’ve played a full season, you’re injured. Does dbag broadcaster know Tony Parker, San Antonio’s best player, missed the second half of the Spurs final game against OKC and they still won? And the reality is, even if Serge Ibaka had played that full series, San Antonio would have still won. San Antonio had, and still has, the better team as things stand right now.
I’m willing to say that dbag wasn’t calling for injuries when Ginobili was falling apart, or when Tim Duncan was having knee problems.
If there’s anything BSP can’t stand, it’s when a national guy blows a team because he has no respect for the game. These guys constantly talk basketball. It’s like they get told about it but have never seen a game except on TV.

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.
