I hate the fact there is no permalink for these blog posts at ESPN. You would think the "WorldWide Leader" *snicker* would be capable of replicating a standard level of technology.
Inside Bay Area - Bogus Finals Stern's just reward for his playoffs sham
Charlotte Observer | 06/14/2007 | Time for change in NBA's playoff format
It's clear enough that this Finals series has been pretty uninteresting, but a lot of this piling on is just more of the same old hateration that people like to indulge in about the NBA. If this series was Pistons-Spurs, I'd bet that a lot of these very same people would be writing, "this series is so boring, why couldn't LeBron have been in it, that would have been great."
Fans/Journalists don't want a rigged sport, but they only want to watch when their "fun to watch" teams make it to the Finals?
Good luck with that.

The network coverage of the Finals is really bad. TNT does a much better job....Marv is way better than Breen. You have Charles and Kenny in the studio etc.
The Spurs are the most boring team in the NBA to watch. There is no drama. We know who is going to win. Nobody has any kind of grudge or anything to prove. ZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
I have to totally agree with basketbills. The only moderate exciting part was when Clevland was up by what..6-8 points last game, i actully didnt fall asleep watching that part. I'll be honest, I found myself switching to the NFL Network channel just to see something interesting, which it wasn't
I think, if the Spurs keep dominating, and dominating, and keep going, it will hurt the ratings, but thats probably already happening, Now i just watch ESPN news to keep me up to date. And of course, since this is obviously going to be one of the most boring series to date, the media is going to hound everybody saying, "Why couldn't we get a differnt team, so this could be interesting?"
I would rather see a sub-pare team against another sub-pare team, so it could be interesting. I would have loved to see the final series similar to the Golden State and Dallas series, that would have been awesome, too bad.
This bay area writer is now my hero. I only wished I had written this piece and then been in the room to see Stern's reaction when he actually read it.
Flip can coach a team, he can not coach a game.
If Joe has not realized this after watching what the Spurs are doing, considering the Spurs only have three decent players. The rest of their team would be DNPs on the Pistons under Flip.
Fire him now.
BTW, worst finals, EVER!
Also from that article...
Flip coaches a team the way Napoleon handled his army.
lol so basically flip would make one hell of an assistant coach??
I'm loving this stuff:
