GAME 7a

Since this series is going where few series dare venture, and where I never saw it going, I thought I'd give my thoughts about tonight.

SAN ANTONIO 85
DETROIT 72

Ginobili recovers from his mid series funk and post 32 points on the Pistons. Rasheed is tossed early in the third quarter after getting his 5th foul and then running his mouth. The refs call the game very closely tonight and many Pistons find themselves in foul trouble. Duncan continues his amazing disappearing act during crunch time, but with the foul trouble, even Duncan can't totally hide. Duncan is given the MVP trophy even though Robert Horry deserves it.

or

SAN ANTONIO 73
DETROIT 88

Ginobili just can't shake off the injury and Duncan shrinks away from stepping up. Detroit's big men manhandle the Spurs. Smelling blood, Detroit just continues to drop the hammer and pulls away to a decent lead. Chauncey Billups scores 26 and claims his second straight MVP (though Rip, Sheed, Ben or McDyess deserve it more). Larry Brown retires as coach and Darko wins Come Back Player of the Year next season (though how could he be considered comeback if he never arrived?).

but can't we dream

SAN ANTONIO 94
DETROIT 95, OT

(This is not my original idea, but an adaptation of a post in Bill Simmons' email.) Detroit and San Antonio duke it out, neither team leading by more than 5 points. Of course, Duncan has disappeared (notice pattern?). Ginobili and Hamilton trade baskets each time down the court. With 2.6 seconds left, Ginobili makes an off balance turn around shot, putting San Antonio up by one. Detroit calls time out and imbounds the ball from half court. As Hamilton goes up for a 15 footer, Bowen nails him in the face. Hamilton, rendered half conscious, is unable to continue in the game. San Antonio is allowed to bring one player off the Pistons bench to shoot Hamilton's free throws. Darko is called in and nails both shots. Detroit wins the championship. Larry Brown retires. Rip Hamilton is named MVP. Darko rips off his jersey and reveals a "Lebron who?" tattoo on his chest.

For anyone keeping count...that's two rings for Darko and zero for Lebron.
