Spurs review from a die-hard Laker fan

"Yes, I am a Los Angeles Lakers fan. Yes, I was disappointed that they lost to the Spurs in the Western semis, mainly because of the no-show of Robert Horry (who is, ironically, now with the team that eliminated him). Yes, I still am a Laker fan, in spite of the things surrounding Kobe Bryant at this time.So why do I write this review? I give my five stars for this DVD since it was a well done and produced championship retrospective in the face of the last three such DVDs being from the Los Angeles Lakers. Although it was missing the "Plays of the Playoffs" as was present in 2002's version, it was still a well done project that paid its due respect to David Robinson. I always liked David Robinson not only for his ability and athleticism but because he is a devout follower of Christ. Religious affiliation aside, this DVD captures Robinson and his Spurs in all their glory this season, even with a special feature of all the "Sixes" (game 6s) that clinched each round.This DVD is fitting not only for a Spurs fan but for any TRUE NBA fan, one who doesn't feel that his team is the only good team and that the Spurs "suck" because they beat the Lakers. If you are open minded and appreciative of basketball, you'll enjoy this DVD as much as I have."
Wow, what Bonus Features

"This DVD is loaded!!! Its got the all the 4th Quarters from each of the Spurs clinching games...Its great to see those incredible moments again...especially the 19-0 run at the end of the Nets game...
Also, the footage from practice and in the lockerroom is tremendous..."

"The feature program is probably only 50 minutes and glosses over the earlier playoff series pretty quickly. But this DVD has great extras, the highlight being near-complete 4th quarters from each clinching game 6. Watching Kobe cry as the Lakers got demolished in game 6 is alone worth the price."

"To philmarlowe 39 if you consider the 1999 season and The Spurs championship during that year as not real, let me ask you this : What if The Lakers won the title that year? Then it would be right to call their reign as also not real because as you said there were only 50 games. I look at this way if The Lakers could't win that title during that year with just a 50 game schedule and using the excuse as not "being whipped in to shape by Phil Jackson", then they don't deserve to be in NBA. Whether it's 50, 60, 80 games, you always have to be prepared. It's not an excuse that you didn't play well because i't's only a 50 game schedule or you're not yet in shape. Then it only means that you're not taking the game seriously. One team during that year took the "50 game season" seriously and they won the champioship.
Also who cares if The Spurs are boring? As long as you win games it don't matter. Fact of the matter is they won the 2003 title and The Lakers went home crying and went on to arm themselves during the offseason ( or so they thought )with Karl Malone & Gary Payton, which didn't make any difference as The Pistons whooped their egotistical behinds in the Finals.
Lastly who needs Kobe Bryant, A.I. or attention hogging superstars on your team? This is where Tim Duncan's greatness lies. He's a bonafide superstar that doesn't neeed to call one's attention to get noticed. He lets his game do the talking. As for Tony Parker I don't what league your watching but he's a superstar in the making. All in all this a great DVD that showcases basketball in its purest form: playing together as a team to win & not hogging the limelight to get attention. Buy this DVD if your only a true basketball fan. If you watch basketball because of whining, large egos and ballhogging this is not for you."
