Conversation with HPbasketball, noamschiller
The gap in efficiency net rating between Spurs and second best team (Celtics, 6) is the same as between Celtics and seventh best (Hawks).
@HPbasketball Are you still in "I WANT TO BELIEVE BUT DEFENSE" or did you reach the "POP! POPOPOPOPOPOP!" stage?
@noamschiller I'm sold. I'm terrified.
@HPbasketball I'm kind of frightened of point it out at this point, but I feel like the only team that can stop them is Memphis.
@noamschiller I still don't like Bynum an Gasol. Bynum is Duncan's Doomsday to his Superman.
@HPbasketball Tony Parker will be eating Sessions-filled-croissants for weeks after that series, though.
@noamschiller Yeah, but he can't guard Sessions either. Parker's a quality defender but would struggle JUST enough.
@HPbasketball I think it's closer than any non-Memphis matchup, even closer than OKC, but the Lakers D is so bad right now.
@noamschiller It would be good, no matter what. spurs are going to be must watch.
