Top 10 Clippers - Spurs Game One Takeaways

Tulsa or San Antonio, I'm not sure which
10) If you are wondering how Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan are all healthy in a year where everyone else is dropping like flies, you are not alone

9) Blake Griffin said his knee was only at 80%, which means that the Clippers can look forward to slightly closer losses as he gets closer to full health

8) There is no truth to the rumor that San Antonio is, in fact, the basketball Borg

7) If Chris Paul isn't the best three players on the floor, this isn't a series

6) Gregg Popovich manages his resources better than any coach in NBA history

5) Duncan has forgotten more about basketball than the Clipper big men have ever learned

4) If you are feeling bad about the Spurs advancing past this fun Clippers team, just remind yourself that less money in Donald Sterling's life is a win for humanity

3) The really scary thing about this Spurs team isn't that they are good, it's that they are so good that they blow teams out when not playing all that well

2) Vinny Del Negro didn't have much to do in this one, but playing Paul for 38 minutes in a quasi-blowout doesn't exactly scream out intellect

1) The NBA's Western Finals are going to have those two sterling media metropolises of Tulsa and San Antonio, which should, for once and for all, end the Tim Donaghy conspiracy theories
