1) His multiple all-star appearances... a complete stud Center (except when Olajuwon would school him everytime they met).
2) Blowing out his knee, which ended his season, and made the Spurs really horrible for 1 season. Being really horrible for 1 season caused them to win the Tim Duncan lottery and the rest is history.
So of these 2 things, what do you consider the better of the 2 overall?
Your question is asking for an argument I'm too tired to deal with at the moment.
If the spurs ceased to exist for whatever reason, would you cheer for the mavs or the rockets(because in this scenario you'd have to cheer for a team from Texas)?
If I had to choose between the two it would absolutely be the Rockets.
The Mavs ooze disease.
Best Rockets moment evuuuurrr:
For some reason they cut away when Barkley body slams Shaq.
I think the best thing The Admiral has done for The Spurs is not only stay loyal to his team but his city. He's opened up charter schools and treats San Antonio like he's lived there his entire life. It was either Sports Illustrated or ESPN Magazine that ranked the top franchises of all professional American sports combined and the Spurs were #9 partly due to loyalty and fan base. I think David Robinson had a lot to do with that initially.
But let's not make this the NBA thread.
I try to sell them a made-up competing product for a dollar less than their offer.
Craziest place you've ever woken up after a wild night?
My first novel, Darkhouse, has been published and is available here on Amazon. It has nothing to do with Coachella. Or vampires.
One time I thought I fell asleep in San Antonio, TX and woke up in New Orleans. The sober driver for the excursion thought it would be fun to take us to Louisiana when he figured the majority of those intoxicated were blacked out by early afternoon. It was weird enough waking up in a hotel but in a different state was kind of wild. He still has not told any of us the events of that night but we didn't really mind we all stayed another two nights before going home.
Favorite smell? Worst thing you've ever smelled?
- Trebek totally looks like a douche without the mustache.

You need to look up what "national debt" means. Or "paid off". or maybe both, I can't tell.

Edit: Changed to "helped reduce." I think during a three-year stretch it was close to 300billion paid? I can't find the stat. Granted my original term was "paying" and not "paid" to imply that it was an ongoing process.
