"Oh yeah?! At least we have three rings, bitch!"
It's no secret that I'm not a fan of the Spurs. In fact, I can't stand them. I acknowledge that they're one of the best teams in the league, I just find their stars and their style of play extremely boring. I also am annoyed by the fact that the Spurs, as a team, bitch about the officiating more than any other team in the league.
That last (fairly innocuous) opinion really pissed off a lot of Spurs fans for some reason. I ended a post over at the FanHouse with that sentiment, and got several angry Spurs fans leaving comments that were all too familiar. Here's a sampling:
Just remember: The Spurs have three things the Mavericks don't have:
1. The Larry O'Brien trophy
2. The Larry O'Brien trophy
3. The Larry O'Brien trophy
To summarize: San Antonio=3 Rings
All I have to say is who has 3 NBA Titles and Who has none....enough said....
When the Mavs win more than 3 Championship Rings then talk your smack.
I thought to myself, what other team's fans unintelligently argue every topic by pointing out the number of championships that their team has won? The Oakland Raiders! The Spurs fans are acting like Raider fans (read: like retarded people), simply reciting championship statistics (no matter how outdated) as a response to any criticism of their team. What a bunch of morons.
*And by the way, the Spurs only have 2 legitimate championships. 1999 doesn't count. Strike-shortened season, like anyone was even trying.*
Hell, we have an entire photo essay showing what a bunch of crybabies the Spurs are, and yet their fans are still in denial. The league today gave Whiny Tim a vote of confidence by suspending Joey Crawford for that ridiculous technical he gave Timmy on Sunday. As I said at the time, that was a bad call, but it was probably based on years of Timmy's crying, and Crawford probably had all he could take. But regardless of how many photos and videos show the Spurs bitching about the officiating, it's good to know that their fans will continue to remind me that they have won three two championships. Real relevant, losers.
