Coach Big Bubba - Basketball Wizard
Despite all of Allen's whining and the best efforts of the referees the Supersonics looked little better than a lackluster pick up game team on a city park court. What's worse is that the Supersonics looked whupped from the start despite all the refs’ best efforts. The one exception was the former member of the Spurs Championship season team, Antonio Daniels.
I do see one problem developing. Ray Allen whined and the referees did their best to help his game. Despite all their ticky tack calls the Supersonics could do no better than chumpball. I think in game three the refs might put Allen on his own. Their theory will be that Allen, and the Supersonics, are so far gone that any further assistance from the referees will have to be so obvious that it will be impossible to pull off. The Supersonics will be on their own, at home, with their home crowd. Will it be enough? Big Bubba doesn't think so if the Spurs are allowed to play their normal tough defensive game. Bruce Bowen, the underrated super star, is a far better defensive player than Allen on offense.
Let the games begin!
Go Spurs Go!
