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.

The Kings have the skill, but I don't know if they are mentaly tough enough for the Lakers.

That would make the Spurs the official "jobber" to the Lakers.

year after to year they choke.

I can see why Shawn Michaels is a Spurs season tix holder now.

Before you slap the choker label on the Spurs, have you all forgotten about the Portland Fail...errr Trailblazers? 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.

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.

If you look up the word "Choke" in the dictionary - you will seeing a picture of Patrick Ewing taking the final shot - not a pretty sight for knick fans everywhere

From the desk of Swordsman Yen
For the Knicks, I don't know if it counts as a choke as much as it was a great defensive play, but...

- John Starks getting the championship winning shot blocked by Hakeem Olajuwon in the final seconds of Game 6 of the 1995 NBA Finals.

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.

Didn't think it would happen so soon after the record was broken. I thought they'd be able to shoot for 100, but I guess that just wasn't realistic. Still, 90 in a row is about as dominant as a team can get in sports.
