    Sort of hoping OKC jumps the Spurs for the 1 seed. I'd rather the Rockets face the Spurs than OKC at this point.

    Trying to see the positive here and agree that I hope OKC takes over #1 spot so we can play them. Already wanted that but with Ginobli out even more.

    Who cares? Ginobili is not the Ginobili he once was

    All that flopping has been taking its toll on Manu for past couple of seasons.

    The body can only take so much.

    This is the price you pay for Manu. He gets injured in critical stretches.

    He's not done much this year for them any ways though.

    i dont agree. He played only 23.4 mins and he averaged 12 ppg, 3.4 rpg , 4.6 apg and 1.4 spg. Those are really valuable numbers, of course he does it on limited time coz his body cant sustain the effort, but he creates for san antonio second unit and get those guys going. He is really important, and besides tp and td, he is the only guy on that team able to create for himself or others.

    not buying it. los spurs always do this. list them out 3-4 weeks or indefinitely, then suddenly they're back in 11 days.

    Even with Ginobli out I still don't want to face the Spurs.
