Let us go back to an earlier game this season, the Grizzlies and the Clippers, with the Clippers broadcast team of Michael Smith and Ralph Lawler on the call.
Smith was talking about the Grizzlies-Spurs playoff series last year, when Lawler came blundering in.
Lawler: "They got very lucky because Manu Ginobili got hurt. That was a fluke first-round win."
Smith: "I agree. There was no way they beat 'em with a healthy Ginobili."
Which makes Lawler and Smith both arrogant and dumb. Ginobili missed exactly one game of the playoff series last year. As opposed to, say, Rudy Gay, who missed the whole thing.
