They are playing great basketball. I don't like the Spurs at all, but they deserve the Championship again.
    lmao @ all the espn analysts pick the suns. I knew they would win, i could tell by the way the celtics handled the suns in their most recent matchup. Marion is a versatile defender who can rebound and score. They definitly miss him but they made a big mistake before the season by trading kurt thomas. The Spurs were equal or slightly better then the suns but kurt thomas was the only player they had that could guard duncan.

    Duncan sh1ts all over amare. Hes still the best big man in the league closely followed by that f@g from boston. Amare is not on the level of either of them. His injury clearly had an impact on him. Hes still a very good player but hes not KG and hes not duncan.

    I have gotten to like the Spurs and I think if they can make it by the lakers they will win the championship. Lakers and celtics or spurs and celtics will both be a great finals matchup so its a win win.

    Stoudemire is one of the most overrated players in the league. He plays no d and disappears down the stretch of games or is a turnover waiting to happen. No wonder the Suns fans don't like him. Talk about a guy that puts up great numbers but is nowhere near as good as his numbers would suggest.

    This hack-a-shaq (even hack-a-skinner) thing is starting to get on my nerves. Popovich is starting lose some coaching points from me. Heck I remember Indiana back in 2000 doing this, and Don Nelson doing this for a couple of years with Dallas. Rick Adelman never even resorted to this when he was with Sacramento during their Conference Finals with LA. And when Bird and Nelson did the hack-a-shaq (sometimes Duncan and Bowen for Nelson) they only did it during the 4th quarter. Rarely did they do it during the 3rd quarter. This year though particularly in this Game 5, Popovich is engaging in it right from the first quarter. Some people would say this is good coaching exploiting the other team's weaknesses, but I think that is ugly basketball. Doing hack-a-shaq is smart but overkill is not great for basketball. Spurs are showing once again why they are so boring to watch.

    Only way Suns are gonna win is to lead by 10. Popovich doesn't resort to hack-a-shaq unless the game is tight or the Spurs are ahead. Suns aren't gonna win any close game with the Spurs. They have to lead BIG and maintain the lead.

    Very tight game with less than 3 minutes remaining.

    If Suns win this game, Suns are gonna win the series.

    Update: It's all over. Suns wasted a lot of opportunities and turned it over during crucial moments. Once again they lose a series that they should have won. Like I said earlier, Suns aren't gonna win any close games with the Spurs.

    Had Duncan not made that 3-point shot in Game 1, it'd probably be either Spurs leading 3-2 right now (Suns winning games 1 and 4), or Suns leading 3-2 (Spurs winning games 3 and 5). Instead it's a 4-1 exit. Bummer for the Suns. I feel bad for them. Too bad Shaq won't be feeling the love in Phoenix, which is a total reversal from his days in LA and Miami. Suns are gonna look back at that Duncan shot like how Spurs looked back at that unbelievable Derek Fisher buzzer-beating heave back in 2004 which came after the acrobatic Duncan jumpshot with 0.8 or 0.6 secs remaining or how the Kings looked back at the Robert Horry Game 5 buzzerbeating three in which Divac stupidly but unintentionally tapped the ball to Horry back in 2002. Big difference is that the Spurs have won 2 more championships since, and don't really care about that LA series anymore, while the Suns have now run into an unbreakable brick wall.

    i dont feel sorry for the Suns, over-achieveing knobs. Made the WORST trade possible and it bit them in the ass. I just love the fact Kurt Thomas got the chance to stick it up them.
    What is Shaq going to say about his promise of delivering a championship to Phoenix? bahahahahahha.
    "Oh i forgot to also tell u that im fat and slow and cant play anymore, peace"
