Dang, i'm not even a fan of theirs and their repeated ability to choke under pressure and their pathetic defense gets me upset.
It wasn't always like this (the choking - not the defense
The past few years they've been known for being road warriors and their improbable 4th quarter comebacks. Like in the first year they returned to the playoffs, in 2001, they came back from a 2-0 deficit to win the opening round series against Utah.
But now, in addition to having no defense, they've lost their guts.
Hopefully they'll be making some big changes in the offseason, i.e. trading Antoine Walker, Steve Nash, and Antawn Jamison for a new PG, some young post players, and salary cap space.
