Sports: The Spurs Portfolio

John Hollinger of ESPN made my case for San Antonio Spurs to win the Western Conference Finals that start Sunday night in Texas.  So I’ll just quote him

“San Antonio’s numbers of late are video-game crazy: The Spurs not only have 18 straight wins, but they are 32-3 in their past 35 games. The most amazing stat is that they’re 24-3 in their past 27 road games, with two of three defeats coming when they decided to rest their starters.

That’s the scarier part; when you take out games the Spurs tanked, they’re record really starts looking good. In the last 47 games Tony Parker played, for instance, they’re 43-4.”

At last check Tony Parker plans to play against the Thunder.  It took the Spurs several months to lose four games with him.  I don’t think that they’re about to lose four in two weeks.

In addition, the Spurs played the Thunder three times this season.  They won two out of three.  Manu Ginobili missed all three.  He plans to play this series too.

I like the Thunder and I hope they’ll hold a championship celebration at Chesapeake Energy Arena, but this isn’t that year.

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.

  1. A championship celebration at Chesapeake Energy Arena–there’s a sickening thought. I hope it never happens in my lifetime. Not that I have anything against Kevin Durant. But I hope he leaves OKC at the end of his contract and wins a championship with another team. In the meantime, Go Spurs!
