Spurs of the Moment

The unpredictable is often celebrated in sports, but there’s also a certain charm to the constants in the sporting world. It’s nice, for example, to be certain that Hulk Hogan will at some point question his opponent’s plans regarding the possibility of Hulkamania running wild. Nicer still is the certainty of what a rivalry game brings, which is normally high-tension drama.

If you consider yourself a fan of the Phoenix Suns, then we don’t need to sell you on tonight’s matchup against the San Antonio Spurs. The Suns most hated rivals aren’t quite the team they were a few years ago – they lost Bruce Bowen and Robert Horry to retirement – but the Spurs’ core of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili remains intact. Grrr.
