Tonight is Halloween and the Spurs are out and about as the current NBA World Champions. Last night was the Spurs home opener and it was a great night. I had the opportunity once again to be present for the championship ring ceremony and the unveiling of the new championship banner. It's fun and exciting to see these things live. The game? Yes, it was a good game against a young but good Portland Trailblazers team. A good game particularly because the Spurs won it.
Tonight they're now 2-0 having defeated the Memphis Grizzlies in a close game. While I'm happy the Spurs are starting off with 2 wins it's a long way to another championship. I'm optimistic that the Spurs can get a back-to-back championship though because it's pretty much the same team. There's still Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Bruce Bowen, Fabricio Oberto, Michael Finley, Robert Horry, Francisco Elson, and Matt Bonner. Missing of course is Beno Udrih who has been traded to the T-Wolves. So, this year there's hope and I'm looking forward to the ride.
