No "Superstars" In The NBA Finals?
That notwithstanding, isn't it interesting to see a guy like Mano Ginobili or Tony Parker make a name for himself by shining in the spotlight, or watching Antonio McDyess or Lindsey Hunter showing the form that made them well-respected veterans? Isn't that more interesting than watching Shaq get 20 points and 10 rebounds, like he seems to do every damn game (except for a certain string of three games in Detroit last June)? I'd say so.
The only complaint so far is that all four games have been blowouts. I'm not sure what to make of that - usually by the time teams make it to the Finals, they're capable of winning on the road (or at least keeping it closer than 15 points).
