    I don't think there's a lot of Bball fans on this forum, but I'm still trying.
    I'm a NBA addict since I'm a kid.
    Peace !

    Wow, a week and not a single reply. What's funny was that yesterday I was watching youtube video of MJ (just highlights and dunk contest) and Hakeem Olajuwon.

    Hah.. I didn't think it was worth reading. I compulsively post sometimes. I think there are a few people who would talk about this, but it's probably not a big interest here, I agree.

    I watched my first basketball game since the last playoffs. Spurs vs Lakers.

    I like the spurs. More specifically I like the spurs "aura". Everyone thinks that they are boring, old, slow etc. But what I see is a team that still wins despite being old and slow. They don't rely on a strength and physicality (to an extent, obviously). They rely on a system that they think will work. It has worked in the past..but it is far from a perfect system. Yet the spurs choose to stick to that system. Instead of tinkering with the system in a quest to look for the "perfect" one...they admit that there is no perfect system. There are just systems...each with advantages and disadvantages. They choose what they think is the best system for a certain situation and they stick to it. If it fails..they learn from it..and they move on.

    Other teams in the NBA (the Heat and the Celtics for example) look for a "perfect" system. When this system fails to get them the results that they want (which is inevitable because there is no such thing as a perfect system) they start blaming each other. Coaches blame the players. Players blame other players. Then the whole thing blows up because the people in charge don't think they have the "right" people for the job.

    But I think the spurs do it backwards. There are no "right" people (again to an extent), there are no "right" systems. All there are are ultimately flawed systems..ultimately flawed people..and it's their job to just play basketball deciding what they think is the "best" based on context and living with the consequences, and learning from their mistakes. I find that very admirable. I like seeing such a mindset win. It's like a puzzle that they want to solve..but the pieces are constantly changing shape. Other teams look for the perfect way to solve this puzzle..but the spurs admit that there is no perfect way..and all they can do is try. Failing doesn't mean you're a failure..it just gives you more insight into the various possible situations...and it's their job to continue trying.

    I also enjoy watching the supposed "perfect" not achieve "perfection".
