Spurs win!!!

Amazing. Astounding. Speechless. These are the words that come to mind as I try to describe the San Antonio Spurs’ wing over the Miami Heat. Gregg Popovich has been a force in San Antonio for more than 15 years. He has preached a type of basketball which is rare these days. He really teaches team basketball. Instead of getting the ball to the superstar, get the ball to the open man. This is why the MVP was not Tim Duncan or Manu Ginobili or Tony Parker. The MVP was Kawhi Leonard. He was the open guy. He had the hot hand. They played GREAT team defense.

The Heat needed more firepower. They didn’t have it. LeBron carried the Heat through the first quarter, then… he needed some help. Wade, who I think has been hurt the entire season, couldn’t do it. Bosh, who only shows up on special occasions, couldn’t do it. Midway through the third quarter the Heat needed someone to step up but no one answered the bell.

Congratulations to the San Antonio Spurs!!!! (more…)

NBA Finals – Game 7 (Update)

NBA finals. Can the San Antonio Spurs rebound from a relatively awful Game 6? I don’t know. I think that the San Antonio Spurs had an opportunity to win in Game 6. They played awfully. I think it is relatively impossible to win a game 7 against the Miami Heat in Miami.

6:43 Heat up by 4. Ginobili is simply lost in space. He needs to be benched. Wade and James are knocking down jumpers. Unless something big happens, the Spurs are going down. (more…)

News Roundup – NSA surveillance, NBA, U.S. Open and more

Over the last two weeks, there’s been a flurry of reports over the NSA surveillance program. There’s been a lot of finger-pointing. There have been lots of accusations in which reporters and their sources have been called traitors and/or patriots, depending upon which side of the political spectrum you’re on. First of all, I really don’t believe that we have enough information to figure out exactly what’s going on. We’ve got a cool name for a program called Prism. We have a rough idea about how the program works, but the devil is in the details. It is not important to me that former Vice President Dick Cheney went on Fox News and defended this program. We know that the vice president is not a human rights/civil rights kind of guy. We also know that he has lied to the American people before. Anybody who stands up and tells you that they are for or against this program should be immediately discarded as a zealot. We, the American people, simply don’t have enough information to figure out what’s going on. I know that President Obama stated that it was important to him that there are checks and balances, but I have no idea what these checks and balances are. I’m a little concerned that the FISA court is not a check nor a balance but are instead acting as a rubber stamp. I’m also afraid to say that I have absolutely no confidence in our elected politicians in Congress. I have no idea if these guys are acting in our best interest or not. (more…)
