Ever thus to ____ers
I seem to remember a thread from a while back that asked people to rank the sports. The NBA was left off of many people's lists, and others made it a point to thrust pro hoops into the basement, below 'hunting and fishing' and 'watching paint dry'. So now that we're at the conference finals, with two of the more intriguing matchups in recent memory, have anyone's opinions changed? The two best defensive teams in the league (Indiana and Detroit) square off - you've got Wallace vs. O'Neal, Hamilton vs. Artest, etc. You've got Carlisle facing the team that canned him, and Larry B back in the finals where he belongs. The two best offensive teams in the league (Los Angeles and Minnesota) square off - you've got Shaq vs. Mad Dog Madsen, KG versus everyone, etc. Zen Master, Mailman, Glove's last push. Really - is anyone not gonna watch these two series?
