What's your secret, San Antonio? Is it the nasty?

Just tell us! We'll be more nasty if we have to.

Do you know how many 7-footers have been this productive at his age? There's Kareem, and there's Tim, and... that's it.

At age 37, Duncan averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds a game this year. Shaq couldn't match that. Neither could Hakeem. (Abdul-Jabbar went for 22 and 8 a game at this age.)

Watching Tony Parker is a nightly exercise in pick-and-roll perfection. And if there was a word more perfect than "perfect," we'd use that.

This league is full of stars — LeBron, Durant, Kobe, Melo — but can anything compare to the feeling of watching the San Antonio Spurs play the way Gregg Popovich built them to play?

The rest of us are dealing with average coaches. You've got Gregg Popovich. Honestly, will we ever see a coach like Pop again?

Why haven't we renamed the Coach of the Year trophy after him, anyway? What does he have to do — win another title? Win another five?

Why after a big win, you drive up Commerce and down Market and honk.
