    no ones taking away credit here. the spurs are a very good team and have been very effective. 4 championships speak for themselves....

    but its no secret the spurs have been a snore to watch. They have won 4 championships. how many of those finals did you watch ? be honest! i watched the finals vs the cavs and thats it. but ive watched every other finals since I was a kid.

    i know I will probably receive heat for this but one reason I think that people hate watching them is truely their colors, Black and silver is so dark and non inviting.

    All real basketball fans will agree with you, but the league makes the most money from casual fans and those are the people who are drawn by star players flashy offense etc.

    Not to sound disrespectful but anyone that watched basketball during the Spurs' title runs considered their brand of basketball 'boring' and not 'fun'.
    Now I would take 'boring' with 'success' any day of the week, but I don't even think Spurs fans considered it a fun style of ball.

    Sad thing is he gets a lot of credit for where the league is today, but IMO anybody could have done a good job with the players he had in the league during his tenure
    Fck the Heat
    Go Mavs

    I love high flying play. It's fun and exciting. But I would watch Duncan over Griffin any day, any time. How interesting is a dunk when we've seen it 300 times? What's so fun about watching a guy with no moves? Duncan is like a swiss army knife. You never know what he's gonna do and while it's not a hype thing to watch with beer and the boys. It's fun on some random Wednesday with nothing to do. Hell I always enjoy it.

    To most fans its not. That Spurs/Pistons finals got rated so low, but it was so fun to watch. Sure there was no high flying dunks and alley oops, but there was tough grind it out basketball and games 5-7 were great to watch. (1-4 were kind of lopsided lol)

    Don't get me wrong, I don't mind watching fast paced, high flying dunks, but that shouldn't mean those teams like the Spurs/Pistons were boring. It's just a different style. A style that has proven to be successful and result in championship appearances/victories.

    In fact, run and gun teams have not proven to be that successful come playoff time.

    BTW, that Pistons/Lakers Finals was Awesome to watch.

    To each their own. For me, if I had a choice to watch Paul/Griffin on league pass or in the case of 5 years ago, Amar'e/Nash over Parker/Duncan and their style, I'd prefer the faster pace. I'm sure casual fans would agree.
    Of course there are people to enjoy watching the Spurs style. Nothin wrong with that either.

    You also have to factor in how many people that are not really fans but suddenly become fans and tune in to the finals. Those people that only tune in during the playoffs and finals and don't know what goes on before that. A lot of those people tune in to see big names, dunks, etc...

    I think most people who are basketball purists appreciate seeing basketball played that way. It just doesn't happen to gain the attention of a lot of people
