Spurs changed the Suns

I'll admit that yes I'm a Suns fan and yes I have a certain hatred for what the Spurs have done and even for one or two of their players, but that doesn't mean I don't respect what they have done.

As a Suns fan my sole obligation is to hate the entire Spurs franchise and I have in the past but as time passes and the wound heals I've come to respect one part in of the franchise in particular, Tim Duncan. No one since the Jordan era has influenced the game (with the exception of Shaquille O'neal) more than Tim Duncan and has done it in such a calm, quite, and graceful demeanor. A franchise player made of dreams made without any sense of an ego and as consistent as they come.

He along with the rest of the team changed what was popular, and they did it by keeping to themselves, other teams namely my Suns built off of what other teams did instead of looking on the inside and fixing the small problems. The trade for O'neal was jus that, a fix to the Lakers Gasol and the Spurs Duncan, the Suns could have changed the game even more had they won a title, they could have changed the idea of defense wins championships.

Instead the Suns changed based on how they thought they could beat the Spurs and in doing so doomed themselves, the Spurs again changed nothing not realizing they would end an entire era of another franchise. So for now I say congratulations, well done, kudos, until we meet again.

May our next meeting be in the playoffs.
