I liked seeing Detroit win last year. Generally I find the NBA boring anymore, but seeing them win was fun because they really are a team. They were clearly about the game. You don't see that much anymore.
This year's series started with Detroit just not showing up against San Antonio for two games. It was pretty hard to watch. Then they go back to Auburn Hills and totally own the Spurs for two games. Tonight you're looking at a 31-point blow out. Wow. Seven guys in double scoring figures. Amazing defense. Still a team, not a couple of superstars. It's a refreshing change from the old Shaq and Kobe show.
Of course, the ratings suck so far, and I don't think anyone cares. The NBA is so close to being interesting again.
