Congratulations, San Antonio
The Spurs captured their 4th NBA title last night, sweeping Cleveland and providing evidence that the disparity between the Eastern and Western Conferences is akin to JV- Varisty these days. I lost interest in the playoffs after the Suns- Spurs series (a.k.a The Real NBA Final), but I did catch last night's game. LeBron had a great playoff run (hey, did you guys know that his girlfriend just had a baby? No kidding! Wow! You'd think they would have mentioned that during the broadcast.) but does need some more support. I'm happy that Tony Parker won the MVP- Duncan's obviously a stellar player, but a couple of years ago, I saw the Spurs completely dismantle the Celtics at the new Garden and walked away from it very impressed by Parker's play. Maybe because the C's haven't had a decent point guard in years. Plus, in addition to my Posada voice, I've created a new Tony Parker voice with a heavy French accent. He doesn't seem to have any accent whatsoever, but I'm convinced he masks it during interviews. "Eva, ma chérie, I am zee MVP!"
