The San Antonio Spurs have dispatched of a very tough Utah Jazz team in five games, and will take the next week off waiting to see who their opponent will be in the NBA Finals.
And the Detroit Pistons?
They are struggling their way through another seven game series with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Come on, now! Why do the Pistons feel the need to do it the hard way every single year? As much as the Detroit press and Pistons fans complain that the team is often guilty of taking the night off to its detriment, they have not changed that perception.
Many pundits are blaming Chauncey Billups, the team’s leader, for the sub-standard performance. Not only is Ã¢Â€ÂœMr. Big ShotÃ¢Â€Â not living up to his name, some say he is making poor decisions and playing without the heart necessary to win a championship.
