How about it? Selling the other team's offense for the better part of three quarters, then hitting their trademark moves at the end of the game...
It's too bad the Spurs haven't had any spine since their short year title....
At least the Kings will make the Lakers play four quarters. ***Outrighted to Jersey City (IL) April 15, 2002*** Promote this thread!

I can see why Shawn Michaels is a Spurs season tix holder now. Pardon The Interruption "Just Set IT And Forget It!"

Think about it. Over the past few years, Portland is the team that... - had the Spurs beat in Game 2 of the '99 West Finals for 47:51, found a way to lose the game in the last 9 seconds, then lost all their confidence as they end up getting swept in the series. - had a 15 point lead and the Lakers on their heels in Game 7 of the 2000 West Finals, only to choke it away in the final quarter with 13 straight missed shots. - Blowing a 5 point lead in the final 30 seconds in this year's first round, thanks in part to perennial choke-artist Scottie Pippen. - has been swept out of the playoffs three out of the past four years, including two first round sweeps to the Lakers. I think the Blazers would be more like Planet Stasiak, while San Antonio would be more of a talented midcard jobber, like Y2J. Have you kicked a panda today?

Y'know something brothers, while we're on the subject of choke artists, how about them New York Knicks?
--1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals vs. Pacers, Game One: The Knicks led the Pacers by six points with less than eight seconds remaining on the clock. The Pacers inbounded, and Reggie Miller buried a three-pointer. Then he immediately stole the Knicks' inbound, backed up and buried another three-pointer. The Knicks were sent to the foul line, and missed both shots. Then, Reggie scored the game-winning point. The Pacers scored 8 points in less than 8 seconds for a dramatic victory. --1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals vs. Pacers, Game Seven: The Knicks were making a comeback on the Pacers, cutting the differential down to two. Their play to tie the game was to have Patrick Ewing drive down the lane. He got in the lane, just about undefended, but missed the easy shot, allowing the Pacers to eliminate the Knicks. I can think of several more examples, but nothing that specific right now. Rough day. Still, review their history and tell me that they're not choke artists. And try to do it with a straight face. “Over the course of history, the kiss of a woman has poisoned a lot of great minds.”

Who are you calling BROTHER, brother?

I guess we should not forget Barkley and the Phoenix Suns to add to that list. I wish I could remember that year Jordan made that shot. Pardon The Interruption "Just Set IT And Forget It!"
The 1985 NBA Draft Lottery, when the Knicks' envelope was bent, was the most-obvious rig job ever, and it landed the Knicks Patrick Ewing. Today's method would make it virtually impossible to rig, I would think.
