Good Thoughts by an Ex-Sun

Coolest guy (Paul Shirley) ever... compares rooting for the Spurs to rooting for cancer... wow. Had a popular Suns blog than moved to ESPN and was a little bit popular. This is what he recently said about the Spurs.

"I can't imagine how anyone could root for the Spurs. It would be like cheering for cancer. Of course, they're really effective (unfortunately, so is cancer), but I don't know if a roster of such easily disliked basketball players has ever been assembled.Tim Duncan might be one of the greatest players of all time, but the constant bug-eyed complaints and the mumps-cheeks make him borderline unwatchable. Manu Ginobili was one of my favorites when he played in Italy. Here, he seems determined to bring a soccer-style sissification of basketball-along with a strong belief in the power of the bald spot-to our shores. Tony Parker looks like Gargamel. And everybody knows that Gargamel is evil"

Are you kidding me, this guy is totally ridiculous... I mean, I know that some, maybe most, people are against the Spurs this year particularly because of the controversial series with the Suns, but this guys take it to the next level. According to "The Fanhouse," "[We're] going to assume that Shirley is joking when he says rooting for the Spurs is like cheering for cancer, because he's a pretty funny guy, and the statement in and of itself doesn't make a whole lot of sense unless you treat it as a joke. It's also important to remember that Shirley used to play for the Suns, so it's not like he's just a casual observer." WHAT A TOOL.
