    Oh, I have no doubt they can vote to remove both. I think the question is whether her interest was automatically the same interest. It is apparently irrelevant, though. I guess they can't terminate ownership by owner, they have to just terminate all ownership in the franchise.

    Speaking of injuries, what eactly was the problem with Iback's calf that he was declared out of the playoffs a week ago? All I heard was that the calf muscle was swollen. Even a bad bruise should not have put him out of the playoffs. If it was a rupture or a tear, I could see it. But it wasn't, was it?

    Hard to believe Thunder med staff mis-diagnosed the injury. Could it be that Serge has such a low tolerance for pain that the staff assumed he wouldn't be willing to play with pain and were anticipating that with the "out for the playoffs"? Or was the team engaging in a little manufatured drama? Not that that would be so bad, I'm just curious especially since I haven't heard anything concrete about the injury -- just how "corageous" Serge is.

    Vogel might have saved his job today against Miami... Lance Stevenson is such a card--blew in LeBron's ear! :lol:

    Spurs vs Heat: the Rematch.

    I am actually glad for and looking forward to this pairing. Duncan and James... two certain first ballot hall of fame players, and imho in-arguably Top 50 of all time.

    Surprised the Spurs won, especially without Parker. But I'm a big team over individual guy, so I'm happy it turned out that way, although there is always a pecking order, even on a team.

    Duncan simply took over in overtime, which I was happy to see. Kawhi has so much upside, and he must use it next series, because the self-anointed king awaits.

    By beating the Thunder in OKC in an elimination game without their catalyst for the second half, the Spurs put an exclamation point on who the best team in the west is this season.

    To Thunder management, when you have a core that gets to the Finals, you don't start screwing around with it before that team has shown that it is incapable of winning a championship as constructed. Then, if changes need to be made, they should be made with the idea of obtaining the players/chemistry needed to get the ring. Trading one of your best core players because you don't want to pay him is a sure way to allow a wide open window of opportunity to close with nothing to show for it.

    Last season I thought the only thing that separated Heat/Spurs was HCA. Having HCA this season along with some championship experience for the young guys, I think the Spurs get another ring. Of note, this season they're going back to the 22111 format. That means that crucial game 5 will be played at Miami. That is a clear advantage for the Heat.

    For the record, not rooting for the Spurs, don't want them to get a 5th ring in the last 15 years to match the Lakers, but I also don't want to see the Heat join the Lakers, Bulls, and Celts in the very exclusive 3Peat club.

    If the Spurs have home court, the format is 2-2-1-1-1, how is game 5 played in Miami?

    Don't they do 2-3-2 in the finals?

    I believe they changed it back to the 2-2-1-1-1...

    You're right, my mistake. Game 5 will be in San Antonio, which means whatever advantage that fact gives will also go to the Spurs.

    :lol:

    Hey, it ain't over yet. But I'm shocked at the progression so far, that's for sure. Haven't figured out Kawhi it happened...

    ^^ Oh, it's over. Gotta give the Spurs organization credit for holding things together the way they have. I almost don't mind them joining the Lakers in the "5 rings in 15 years" club.

    I'm also a bit surprised by how glad I am that the Heat won't be joining the "3Peat" club with the Celts and Lakers. LeBron and the Heat are good, they just aren't that good.

    LeBron is one of the top ten players ever in NBA history, and he will get some more rings. But not on this Heat team. They are too old and too tired and if it weren't for a heroic effort on Lebron's part in game 2, this series would already be over.
