The New "Old" Team: Parkobili

The Spurs won again. What's new? They always win. They'll probably win the title too anyway. In all of their trips to the NBA Finals since 1999, they never lost the series. I don't think this is the year where they will let up on that. They'll probably want to increase the NBA Finals series-win-streak to maybe 20, or when Duncan finally loses his legs (around 60 years old). I've already stated in one of my past posts on some theories as to why the Spurs are labeled as boring, but I think it's time to give credit now that it is due. Hey, love them or hate them, the Spurs are going to the Finals; what better time than now?

Tim Duncan has just been amazing and the whole team has just been DEEP. I'm talking about really DEEP. I'm not even saying knee-deep, I'm saying neck-deep. However, when Tim Duncan is in the mood to cruise for the night maybe because of lack of sleep from partying real hard the night before ("really?!"), there has been one consistent force that has been pushing the Spurs' dominance in all the games. Can you take a guess? Correct! I am talking about Tim Duncan's Dark Knights: Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. I've actually thought of a moniker for them already: Parkobili!

Actually, I'd like to clear things up. Tony Parker has just been so consistent this whole playoffs. There is not a single player of the Spurs I can say the same about. Without Tony Parker, the Spurs should have been out a long time ago. However, Tony Parker thrives from his partner, Manu Ginobili. Manu has had some inconsistencies, but Tony needs him nonetheless. Think of it this way: Tony Parker is a well-oiled-well-tuned Dodge Viper SRT10 and Manu Ginobili is the NOS Turbo. Without Manu, Tony is still fast, smooth, and deadly (with the ladies); but if you add Manu to the mix, the force created is so destructive that the opposing teams fear the back-court of the Spurs far more than they fear Duncan himself. I said it once and I'll say it again, Tony Parker is FAST; and he isn't afraid to go inside and get clobbered under the rim despite his French body, something that happens almost always. Manu Ginobili on the other hand is really an explosive player. It doesn't show in his face, more so on his bald spot; but he is very fancy with his moves and is unstoppable when he has his offensive groove on high gear. One thing I would like to mention is the ball-sharing and the passing game between Manu and Tony; it is just beautiful. This guard combination of the Spurs is just or more valuable than Tim Duncan himself. This guard combination is the reason the Spurs have pushed this far in the playoffs. This guard combination is the reason for the last Spurs Championship back in 2005 (even without David Robinson), and will be the reason for the next Spurs Championship in 2007 (still without David Robinson). Take one of the two, then you'll have "so-so, sure, you're good, whatever", but put them together and you'll have your fourth title in nine years. Eat that.

So what do you get when you combine fast, explosive, and fancy? Parkobili!

Parkobili Playoff Averages: 36.2 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 10.4 apg, 3 spg, 33.85 mpg

Not bad. Did I mention Tony Parker can speak French?

Tony look out! That exotic European twat is hitting on your fiance!

Check them out in the NBA Finals. Watch havoc ensue.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea
shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and
screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
