Game 1 Thread: Spurs @ Suns


Dichotomy - Division into two usually contradictory parts or opinions

This is the word that springs to mind when thinking of past series between these two foes (and my television viewing habits this last weekend). Offense vs. Defense; Finesse vs. Physicality; New School vs. Old School. Although some claim that the Suns now play defense and that the Spurs now score easier, I still think it will come down to the same battle of wills. Let's hope our guys show the determination of years past.

Remember, don't break Rule #1. I'm in a good mood; don't be responsible for making me cranky.

Also, you can visit our counterparts at Bright Side of the Sun, but don't be trollish.
