This morning on NPR, Frank Leford lamented the lengths of the NBA season. He argued, with some merit that the playoff season was far too long. Given that the regular season ends in April, Leford argued that by the end of June interest in the sport had dwindled. I'll grant him that point, however, he went on to discuss how the Detroit-San Antonio series was one of the most boring in NBA history - as both teams were bereft of big name stars. What exciting about the Detroit-San Antonio series is the fact that these teams play so well together as teams and not as individuals. The amazing thing about watching Detroit for this gal who lacks a big sports education is how well they play together as a team - that energy breeds energy.
