Yeah, but ya see we're talking 'ifs' right now, so that's why I'm not worried. We already know that San Antonio just needs 2 more. (6, in total)

The 2001 Lakers were over a decade ago, so I'm pretty sure that constitutes "in a long time".

Meh,it's 2-0 spurs. Can you envision OKC beating them 4 out of the 5 remaining games?

Yeah....thought not.

I love my Spurs! 20 in a row!

If they go 16-0 in the playoffs, how do they stack up against the Bulls team that won 73?

Hollinger had a pretty good article last week. Talking about these spurs. Said they are like 42-3 or 43-2 in their last 45 games with Parker in the lineup.

While no team will be considered as good as the 72 win bulls, and while I don't expect a 16 game sweep of the playoffs, 2 more wins in a row and these spurs hold the best playoff start ever. 3 more wins and they move to 2nd all time longest streak.

Default Cro-magnon continues selfish shot attempts

Once again, ball-hogging, cro-magnon Westbrook launched more shot attempts than anyone in the entire continent of North America in the loss. 24 attempts. He's being outclassed by Parker, who is playing on a team with championship pedigree.

Go Spurs!

That's because Parker took him out of the series by making it personal. Parker all but called him out.

Those next 2 wins in a row are going to be tough, but regardless the Spurs are looking utterly dominant.

Go spurs.

He gave me the impression that he didn't remember the 2001 Lakers because of how he said a long time. He could have just said "I haven't seen a team this good since the 2001 Lakers"
