The season is over.  There will be no championship.  Not this year or any time soon.  We will be lucky if we don't get embarrassed in the first round.  Again.

What's worse?  The coming draft brings no savior.  There will be no first-round franchise changer. 

Now we can watch Manu and DeJuan, merely for the pleasure, run the pick and roll like the beauty and beast they are.   We can enjoy Tim scoring off the glass, rebounding, and anchoring our defense with a cold, boring efficiency.

We don't have to curse Tony for spending his summer banging against middling Europeans.  We no longer have to burry our heads in our hands every time Richard Jefferson clanks a wide open jump shot, misses a defensive assignment, or pouts.

No.  There is nothing now to keep us from watching Spurs basketball and enjoying it for what it is: basketball.

I propose that we spend the next half of the season as giddy fans excited just to be here. 

Let's hope guiltlessly and allow ourselves to believe the Denver game was not the end of our season, but the beginning.

Enjoy the All Star break PtR!!!
