It is sad but true. The Spurs are officially the kryptonite to the ratings towards anything that is basketball. I tried liking them, I really did. I even wrote a post complementing their deadly guard-combination which has boosted them straight to the NBA Finals; something that caused me to plummet back to Earth. I have come to a conclusion that absolutely nobody, save for the people in San Antonio themselves, care for the Spurs. My post regarding Parkobili got solo-linked by Deadspin yesterday, and it has acquired below 200 hits since then, a far cry from the usual 2,000. It's a first-hand experience in the ratings and popularity an entity can expect from sponsoring the San Antonio Spurs. Let this be a lesson. This serves as an omen for things to come in the NBA Finals. I'm talking about low ratings. Nobody seems to care about the Spurs, not even if it's anything about the only two potentially-exciting players on their roster.
The Spurs have no hope. I guess we can start pondering once more about why they are boring.
The Pistons and Cavs' game is on right now, with Cleveland up 3 with only half a quarter left in the game. It looks like another nail-biter. I'm rooting for Cleveland to win, not only for the rest of the world's sake, but for the NBA's sake. Otherwise, they'd realize first-hand what it means to have your ratings dropped.
