after dropping games 1 and 2 at home against the lakers in the first round of the playoffs, back when you only needed 3 to win the series Westy famously stated:
"I'll tell you whats going to happen. We're going to go over to L.A. and win two games, and then we'll come back home and win Game 5, and everybody will say what a great series it was."
Ive never been one to make predictions or guarantee things. But I'll tell you whats going to happen. The suns are going to go into San Antonio and win game 6. Then they are going to come back home and win game 7, and everybody will say what a great series it was.
The game was lost with the starters resting on the bench. The Spurs went on a run and D'Antoni brought in Nash and Stoudemire after the game was out of reach.
And I don't understand why he didn't give ANYONE a shot besides six guys in game 5. I don't know why you have guys like Rose, Burke, and Banks on your team if you don't feel like you can give them even 3 or 4 minutes in ONE game.
And Barbosa fucking ninja vanished this series, Jesus Christ.
But damn if this series didn't leave a bad taste in my mouth. I don't mean anything that happened in game, or any reffing, or anything like that, just shitty circumstances that aligned that prevented the Suns from
competing at full strength for the series. That's the really disappointing part.
"Good job with the jinx there. Jesus Christ, no wonder we lost. =P "
I was trying to get good juju going by posting that. It certainly worked in the 90s. If only I had guarunSHEED it, we would be getting ready for a game seven. And in that game they couldve worn the 90s throwbacks (which are ugly as shit but still my favorite suns uni).
"that 92-93 team had a better cokehead though."
D'Antoni shouldve toyed with the idea of signing Richard Dumas to a 10 day contract for this series, loaded him up on yak and painkillers and turned him loose on the court. That is if you could find the gutter he currently resides in. Dude was a pretty amazing drug player though.
