The last couple of years, I have suspected Hollinger is a Spurs Homer. In a preseason article, Hollinger had the Spurs ranked higher than anyone else did on the ESPN staff.
In his latest chat, Hollinger says he " doesnt know why the public has deemed the Spurs boring, because they are a fun team to watch" ( Question # 23)
" If the Spur and Celtics played a series today, San Antonio would win " (Question # 16)
"The Spurs have to like their chances against Los Angeles, provided they are healthy" (Question # 26)
Also, just how big of an anomaly was the Spurs/Celtics game earlier in the season? Boston shot 61%, the highest percentage San Antonio had allowed in OVER TWENTY YEARS. You have to like the odds against Boston ever shooting that percentage against the Spurs again.
