What constitutes a real "rivalry"? To be considered a rival, you should at least have won a NBA Championship. Or maybe even a Conference Championship i.e. Dallas Mavericks. But then again, when you pull off two of the biggest choke jobs in the history of modern sports, in consecutive years nonetheless, you and your fans lose all rights to talk trash. For eternity. I just don't understand how Dallas and Phoenix and even the media consider Spurs vs. ____ (insert your team name here) "rivalries". Please! Boston vs. L.A in the 80's, L.A. vs. Detroit in the late 80's early 90's, Chicago vs. no one in particular, Lakers vs. Spurs in the new millenium, now those were rivalries as both teams had already won championships. Phoenix can't even get past the conference finals! So what do you think? Am I right or am I right?
I understand how these teams and their fans hate, loathe and despise us, it's pure simple jealousy, no other way around it. They've never won jack chit, we have. They can call us a one horse town, but it's a big beautifully groomed horse, a Clydesdale if you will, while they are stuck riding around on their donkey, burro, jackass, all one in the same. And when I say hate, loathe, despise, I say it as the biggest understatement ever. I've lived in the DFW area. I've been to games in Phoenix. These people take hatred to a level I never thought existed!
But surely, I digest, we'll let the 4 rings speak for themselves. Sorry for the long post. It's late and I just had to let off some steam. The Spurs make me want to go to the casino and gamble all my money! First time post-er, long time viewer.
