No, there's nothing wrong with that.... when you're NOT suddenly surrounded by OKC bandwagon jumpers who were Mavs fans not too long ago...

And Tim Duncan is STILL whining about the officiating. I have zero respect for that whiner.

look, I don't see any point in complaining about the refs either, especially when the game is over and you're out. But even YOU have to admit there that there were some b.s. calls.

Even the real Thunder fans I've had to sit next to can admit that.

The previous collapses by the Spurs were 2004, which was the 2nd round and they lost 4 straight to the Lakers after being up 2-0. That collapse wasn't as big as 2012 because it was the second round of the playoffs. The other collapse was last year which was a first round exit to the Grizzlies after having the best record in the NBA.

Now this year the Spurs have the best record again and went on a long winning streak toward the end of the season which lasted to the 3rd round of the playoffs. The Spurs were on a 20 game winning streak and were only 2 games away from the NBA finals and then lost the next 4 games. So the fact that this playoff series lost came when the Spurs was the closest to the Finals, how can this not be the biggest collapse in the Tim Duncan era?

I saw a lot of flopping from the Spurs. Were there bad calls? Sure there were, on both sides of the ball. But for a player to whine about the calls being the reason they lost four in a row is classless. That seems to be the spurs mantra. They need to get over it and just admit they were beaten by a superior team. Were the Thunder bitching and moaning about bad officiating when they were down 2-0?

Actually, the Spurs mantra is WINNING. They are a class organization whether you see it that way or not. But still, I saw alot of flops on the OKC side as well.

But again, doesn't matter now.

Harden is a flop artist, no doubt about that.

Pop showed true class after the game. You have to hand it to him.

BULL!
look, your team won, they played well, BUT the officials in both game 4 and 6 where some of the worst in the entire playoffs. arguably as bad a wade living at the line in 2006.
there are to many examples to point out so im gonna take one and leave it at that. steven jackson got a tech for staring at mo cheeks who was screaming at jack while he was shooting a 3. fisher hit a 3 about 12-15 minutes later and immediately blew a kiss and a wink at the spurs but no tech for taunting on that one.

and talk about flopping, harden learned everything he knows from manu tape, and he is quickly surpassing the master, and fisher learned from vlade so you dont want to go there.

bottom line, the spurs are the class of the league, the thunder are building on what presti learned from the spurs, and they play everything nearly the exact same way. if your going to bash the spurs then you are all but bashing the thunder on the same token.

all that said, good luck to the thunder, i hope they play the celtics.
