Spurs Attempt to Help Suns in Game 3

New, comments

In a rare show of generosity, the Spurs, a team that prides itself on not complaining and ondishing out physical play, attempted to do the Suns and Suns fans a favor.

This from Spurs' KSAT 12

KSAT 12 Sports has learned the Spurs have contacted league officials regarding a play involving Suns guard Leandro Barbosa and Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, and have asked for Barbosa to be suspended.

Unfortunately, the league continues to persecute Phoenix Suns fans by all but guaranteeing that LB will start Game 3:

KSAT 12 Sports has learned the league reviewed the play in question and that no action would be taken.

Between Haq-A-Shaq and this uncharacteristic complaint, I detect serious fear in the Spurs' coach's mindset. Of course, if the Spurs win, it will just be another exhibit in Popovich's genius, because winning is the answer to everything.

 

The youtube of the play after the jump!

 

Here's is the youtube video:


One mean Spurstalker didn't want LB suspended, saying

Don't get him suspended! Hes playing so bad it would be an improvement to their team if he was.

Now, let me be clear. I'm not a fan of any play that risks undue injury. But for the past few years, our team has been the victims of physical play. So be it.

 

If someone has to get beat up on the playground, I don't see why it has to be my team? If my team's gonna lose, I want them to go down swinging, playing good hard, physical basketball.
