Jeff, I normally have no problem rooting for the Spurs. They are a class organization, but I loved seeing ZBo do his thing. I thought one of the worst things Donnie Walsh did was dump him (and Jamal) at the same time for nothing without trying to rebuild his value to the league. Of course they ha to go so we could chase LeBron's skirt, but they ignored the value of a dedicated gym rat who was magical in the low post. That performance last night was pure Magic. The ball in his hands within five feet has built-in radar. Amazing.
Excellent season for the aging Spurs, but great season for Project Spurs.
