I can safely say that the majority of NBA fans did not
want the Phoenix Suns to lose in the Conference Semis. Especially the way they did.
And I can safely say that I do not
want to see the Spurs and the Pistons in a rematch of the 2005 Finals.
Even though that series went the full seven games, at times the '05 Finals were nearly unwatchable. For starters, the first four games were decided by an average of 21 points. In three of those games, the losing team shot 40% or worse.
The remaining three games were competitive, but in the low-scoring, two-dogs-chewing-on-each-other slugfest
-style of the 1990's. Do you have fond memories of the 1994 Finals, where the Rockets or Knicks
would win handily by barely scoring 90 points?
The high-scoring Phoenix, Denver and Golden State shootouts (insert Stephen Jackson joke) have spoiled us this postseason. This June, mentally prepare yourself for the basketball equivalent of a root canal.
