SORT BY Relevancy
You do not leave your best offensive player on the bench for the most important offensive play of Game 6 and Game 7. You do not leave your bst defensive player on the bench for the most critical rebounding opportunity of Game 6. Congratulations, Gregg Popovich. You deserved to lose the NBA Finals.
More on that, plus a Nixon v. McGovern reference, in this interview from Friday with Bob Valvano of ESPN680 The Zone in Louisville.
Seems like all I am doing with my Friday is interview after interview bashing Gregg Popovich. Now, don't get me wrong. I like Pop. I've covered him with the Spurs and Team USA since 2002. When he is chippy with the media, he is never directing that chippiness at me (you have to know HOW to ask a proper question, or you are dead meat). But he is open to some serious second-guessing, and that's what I did in this interview on NBCSports AM1060 in Phoenix.
The San Antonio Spurs have now won five championships in 15 years.
With that in mind, are the Spurs a dynasty? Earlier this season, Phil Jackson said they were not.
During the 15-year run, the Spurs have not won back-to-back titles. However, does that negate them as a dynasty?
What are the legacies of Tim Duncan and Gregg Popovich?
Duncan is considered the greatest power forward of all-time, but where does he rank amongst the best overall?
He made NBA history by becoming the first player to start on a championship team in three different decades.
Did Popovich secure his place on the Mount Rushmore of coaches?
Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops joined Yahoo! Sports Radio hosts Anthony Pepe and Mark Linehan to discuss San Antonio’s validity as a dynasty and the legacies of Tim Duncan and Gregg Popovich.
Sports talk and discussion with an attitude for the passionate and hard core fan.

In the second hour, we'll talk some MLB, NFL off season, as well as recap the Stanley Cup Finals for you.
The 2014 NBA Finals ended quicker than most of us expected and it was the San Antonio Spurs that claimed their fifth NBA Championship. How long can the Spurs keep it going? Will this be the end of the Miami Heat? Be sure to check out the 300lbsofsportsknowledge Show as I will be discussing this and more.
What a weekend meant for the all-access sports playground. The Spurs open an clinic of redemption upon King James but, where the hell was the supporting cast. We'll put our detective hat on and investigate. The USA came up with their own brand of sweet revenge upon Ghana but who was the hero? You won't believe who it was and eulogies for two sports greats that we lost too soon along with one Heat player stuck in Fantasyland. We're loaded, it's live, it's another old-school edition of Turner's Takes...NEXT!
The NBA Finals are over and the San Antonio Spurs are the 2014 NBA Champions, which means the 2013-14 NBA season has come to an end.
Bryan and Steve talk about the storylines from the 2014 NBA Finals between the former defending champion Miami Heat and the newly crowned champion Spurs. They'll also talk about the pending free agent moves and draft decisions that teams will make over the next month to get ready for the 2014-15 season.
There will be no shortage of debate, disagreement and back-and-forth during this show as the guys look on the past year and into the future for any team that considers themselves a favorite for next year.

Julian Bravo, Aaron Walker, and Gregory Harris recap the 2014 NBA Finals.
Sports talk and discussion with an attitude for the knowledgeable and hard core fan. Today, co-host Lance The Everyday Sports Guy joins Bo to talk about a little bit of everything under the sun when it comes to sports; we'll touch on the developing MLB season as we head towards the All Star break, the NBA Finals and the resulting impact on the legacies of LeBron James and the Miami Heat as well as Tim Duncan, Greg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs, as well as some NFL off season personnel moves and storylines heading into training camp. Bo will also get Lance's take on some of the college football story lines developing such as the possibilities of unionization and more. We'll even talk some Stanley Cup Finals.
Your one-stop spot for a quick review and analysis of the NBA Finals Game 2 from every angle. Two sportswriters and one hoops expert are all strecthed out, taped up and ready to go. Whether you saw the game or not, this 20 minutes will entertain and educate you. LeBron, D-Wade, C-Bosh, Birdman and others have a tall task ahead of them in this series, and Timmy D, Manu, Tony Parker and the deep supporting cast in San An are obviously coming for what they feel is rightfully theirs.
The San Antonio Spurs win their fifth title of the Tim Duncan/Greg Popovich era. Yay! Good for them.
Now to what everyone really wants to know: What's next for Lebron James?
James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh can all opt out their deals and become free agents. The "Big Three" can also opt out of their deals and sign for less in order to bring more talent to South Beach (like say, Carmelo Anthony). Of course, all three can opt in to their deals, which would likely make it really difficult to make the roster moves needed to prevent another whooping like we just witnessed in the 2014 NBA Finals. (See what we did there? Clever, huh? No? Whatever.)
Also, how much blame goes to "The King"? Which 2-guard would you rather have on your roster in 2014-15, Dwyane Wade or Kobe Bryant? Where should Lebron go?
AND HOW ABOUT GIVING SOME PROPS TO THE SPURS, DAMMIT?!?!
Check us out tonight as we delve into these questions, today's patent ruling against the Wasington professional football team, and Marcus' futile attempt to turn Darryl into a soccer fan. Tune in!
