I have been accused of being the get off my lawn guy in my 8 months here with San Antonio Sports Star and in some respects it’s hard to argue. But there is one thing that drives me crazy, fans of teams that root for their team to lose. Right now that is the sentiment here with the Spurs. Tank this and tank that, I just can’t take it anymore! I realize the NBA is ripe for teams losing games, on purpose if you will, in order to get more ping pong balls in the hopper for a chance at a higher draft pick. I get all of that but how in the world can you go into season and pull for your team to lose? It just does not compute in this thick head of mine. I can’t imagine the players like it, can you imagine telling Keldon Johnson and Devin Vassell that the plan is to lose to get you guys more talented players. So go out fellas and play, but just not to hard.
When the Spurs season begins I will be cheering as loud as I can, hoping for a win. I realize this Spurs team is not championship quality but I really think most folks around these parts are underestimating the talent this team has assembled. I have been very clear about the Spurs winning 30 plus games this season, a number that gives some Spurs fans nightmares. Only time will tell how the season will unfold, but one thing I know for sure, I will be cheering for wins every game, maybe some of you will be with me?
