These NBA Playoffs, while surprising in some ways, have not been overly exciting. There have been moments, here and there, that have been exciting, but overall we have seen lopsided games, no real fights, and a lot of injuries. There are still plenty of things to love about the NBA, though (especially if you’re a Spurs fan).
Here are my Top 10 favorite things about the first month (ish) of the 2012 NBA Playoffs:
8.) Watching the Pacers play really good basketball.
7.) The Spurs are unbeaten and healthy so far in the playoffs. This is why I think we have a legit run in store.

2.) The Spurs getting much more media attention. This article even makes a case for this team to be among the Greatest of all Time.
