    Even healthy, the Spurs would have prevailed because they are the superior team with possibly the best power forward ever, a point guard among the top four or five ever, one of the best five shooting guards ever in Ginobili, an above average center, all complemented by great long-range shooters. All other teams would be wise to study the Spurs and how they turn good athletes into great shooters and good decision makers. San Antonio's shooting coaches must have better drills and better instructional techniques than their counterparts on other teams because you can always count on the Spurs' supporting cast to kill the opposition. Not many teams would beat a fully healthy Spurs team, and even when one of their stars is missing or hurting the Spurs are dangerous. If the team was in a big city market back East, there would be constant talk among the national sports media of how highly they rank on the list of all-time great NBA teams. Without looking at the stats I would guess that very few teams have a better record against the Jazz since David Robinson left Navy.

    When you lose a player a game to injuries it not surprising the Lakers got trounced.

    The only good thing about the Jazz not making the playoffs is watching the Lakers go down in flames in four.

    Just think, with a little more effort (10 minutes total) in two games this could have been the fate of the Jazz, rather than L.A.
