I'm surprised that Detroit still sounds so confident. Aren't they a little worried? I think they should be. I know about them winning elimination games, but they aren't playing anywhere near as well as we are used to seeing them play. SA doesn't sound anywhere near as confident that they will be the eventual victor. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Is that supposed to be a joke or does someone need a history lesson?

Miami looks solid. Cavs are suprising everyone. Detroit looks tired, but are probably NOW determined. Mavs look strong. Spurs look angry. Suns look desperate. Clippers look good. Whoever wins game 6 between Detroit and Cavs will win. If Spurs beat Mavs at home, they will win game 7 also. Suns will win if they contain Radmonovic and Tim Thomas has a good game.

I just want to say this right now. After both the Pistons and the Spurs have won their game sixes and are heading home, if the finals are indeed, as I fear, Spurs vs. Pistons again, I will never, EVER, watch another NBA game as long as I live. Period. Any sport that allows the dullest possible showdown as their championship series two years in a row is unworthy of being watched by the general public. If another Spurs/Pistons match-up occurs, I hope that the NBA goes the way of NHL.

Any Sport that "lets?" Just what would you expect the sport to do? As dull as the Spurs can be to watch (I don't feel that the Pistons are nearly as dull) they are still one of the most solid teams to ever play the game. What is it that you suggest that the NBA do to prevent them from making the finals?
