Did he even jump?

Did you see Boban Marjanovic’s dunk last night?It looked like he didn’t even jump to dunk the ball. Then came the staredown:

This guy, a 7’3″ NBA rookie has quickly become a fan favorite here. Mainly because unlike most tall stiffs, this guy can actually play a bit. He isn’t a key player for San Antonio, but he could potentially give you some minutes in the event of your bigs needing a blow.

Speaking of San Antonio, they are good. One thing about the Spurs, they rarely lose to teams they are supposed to smash. The regular season for the Spurs is just a time period before the playoffs, where you avoid getting hurt.  Did you see this chart? Tim Duncan is on a streak of 50-win seasons. I believe it is now 17 in a row, and the only one that isn’t was strike shortened. Duncan is 5th on that list. It kind of speaks for itself. It also speaks for the NBA as in how noncompetitive  it really is:

Golden State has been playing extremely well, setting records, but those two teams seem to be on an eventual playoff collision course.

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.
