I love Blair. Amazing that any team could have had him.

But I hate them because they are the sole reason the Suns don't have a couple of finals appearances and a ring.

I don't understand honestly...

Probably because they are "boring". Maybe because they are so damn good all the time. Probably because they've beaten your team in the playoffs before.

I like them. A bunch of veterns, good guys, all-business players mixed with some fun and exciting youth.

Coming from the team that feeds Kobe the ball to win games. Try winning a game by passing the ball, getting dirty buckets down low and playing stiff D, then come talk.

Butttt I guess I hate the spurs because Tim Duncan should be a celtic.....

Borrrr-inng!

Oh, and more importantly: they're dirty players - Horry checks Nash into the stands and its Amare and Diaw who get suspended a game for leaving the bench.

Oh, and Duncan gets way too much credit (not that he's not a great player, but he was never an MVP)

Jdawg

The most common things I have seen so far are:

dirty (Because of Bruce's defense and Horry's hip check right?)
old (They're not any older than most contending teams)
boring
because they've beaten your team in the playoffs (I understand this one)

People say they're boring all the time. Why do yall say they are boring? What's boring about them? I don't get that part.

Now, if the Spurs are down Manu can be exciting. Otherwise, the Spurs are a good team that knows how to grind it out and slow the game down. But seeing teams miss bucket after bucket or maybe having parker drive the lane for some floaters is not fun to watch.

And, it's not just Horry and Bowen that have been dirty.

Finally, I forgot to mention the whole team complains about every foul. I swear Tim Duncan feels as though he's never committed a foul in his life and he cries about it. Watch him go bug-eyed.

Manu is wildy entertaining, so i dont know wtf your talking about. But their small market teamand their jersey/home floor is kinda bland with the black and white, and its a proven fact people like watching teams with brighter, more colorful jerseys

Aside from the dirty comments, I feel like most people don't like them because they execute NBA fundamentals better than anyone in the past 11 years, meaning they're "boring" to them.

That being said, I think anyone who truly appreciates the game and understands how basketball is played doesn't think the team is boring. I did when I was a teenager and they won all the time, but now that I understand the game better I love watching them.

Bunch of "boring and old" players.

that's no reason to hate. i personally like the Spurs. They all know and play fundamental basketball and win. beat many teams in the playoffs and won many titles.

Try winning a game? I guess winning a championship with that style of play you described isn't enough. :eyebrow:

Just like most of the people in this thread have said, they are boring as **** to watch. I mean they've got great fundamentals but they have no flashy players, which can be a good thing. I've hated them since I was a little kid cause I couldn't stand watching them.

definitely a boring team to watch if you dont care about them. they just win games, sometimes they win ugly but they certainly know how to win....kind of like the steelers of the nba (is that an accurate comparison?) i dont know, something about tim duncan pisses me off too. the way he stares at the ref after a foul is called or something just makes me hate him. i know hes good but like someone said earlier, hes gotten very whiney later in his career. they have had some dirty players over the years, too.

04-27-2010, 01:53 AM
they just go about their business with a bunch of good players winning games, there is nothing wrong with that if you are a spurs fan, they are a great team, but they are not exciting or fun to watch, at all. I hate the spurs because they dont do anything that gets me riled up as a fan, they dont get me excited at all during games, i dont care who says it is cliche but they are boring, nothing else to it

The Spurs are boring because the play the same way for years. Half court sets, ball down to timmi who is a big fundamentalist. The spurs havent got any flash, any hops no nuthing. In an era of flying and athleticism, where guys LBJ and Wade produce highlight reels every day, the Spurs are just dull.
The only guy on the Spurs who has some flash and is worth watcing is Parker, but he's injured 90% of the time. Other than that, theyre old, cant jump, no flash, no moves just lame *** halfcourt sets killing the beauty of the game. Hell TD shoots free throws for 30 seconds, who the hell wants to watch that?

-because they steal titles from overrated flashy teams. ask the cavs, they were the last victim.
-they don't do stupid pre-game shows
-they don't dance in the court or the sidlines, which is supposedly (according to some) entertains the crowd.
-they don't make flashy dunks.
-they don't make stupid hand gestures after draining 3pt shots.

the boring issue is subjective. if you consider manu as boring, then you probably need professional help.
generally, they aren't as flashy as the cavs, so you don't get a lot of fans. championships apparently don't attract fans but flashy dunks do.
i've been a spurs fan so i love watching them.

in my opinion, if you spend more time thinking about pre-game shows, flashy dunks, dance steps, or hand gestures, than working on your game so you get eliminated from the playoffs --- that's boring.
i don't care if you dunk with your foot, moonwalk while getting back on defense, or point your toes to all directions after each baskets as long as you win championships.

Don't hate...Don't like them...but 100% respect them and how hard they play...Manu and hill have been lights out...Dallas is done, I am a Magic fan, but would rather see the lakers in the finals than the spurs just put it that way...good luck in the second round against utah

Tommyh1331
04-27-2010, 02:55 AM
and i would take a team who wins championships and is not flashy any day...the spurs have 4 titles in the past 11 years that is just plain remarkable and respectable by any means

The comments on the color of their jerseys and homecourt are new to me. But now that you mention it, that makes sense. The homecourt is just the basic maple hardwood basketball floor, and the jerseys are black and white. Never thought of it that way. Interesting I can see that.

And they have been winning the same way for years so I can see how non-Spurs fans can get bored with that. They have the best winning percentage of any team in all 4 Professional Sports over the last 12 years.

Although- Manu, Parker, Hill, Blair and RJ have all been pretty effing entertaining. RJ probably has more dunks this season than the entire Spurs team had combined over the last 3-4 seasons.

It could easily be argued that the Spurs/Mavs series is the most exciting series, besides maybe OKC vs LA.

Spurs are boring because the media doesn't hype them enough. If they started showing half of what Manu does on the court on ESPN 24/7, like they do with other teams, Spurs would prob get a lot more credit.
