Spurs vs. Thunder
The "Sportsbash" was LIVE from the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club in Galloway, NJ for the ShopRite LPGA Classic being held there this weekend. Mike Gill and Todd Ranck open up the show with their thoughts on Thunder/Spurs Game 2. Mike Gill says it was a great strategic coaching move on the part of Greg Popovich resting most of his starters in preparation for Saturdays Game 3. Todd Ranck now believes this series will go 7 games either way.
Drafting a starting 5
Mike Gill and Todd Ranck then decided to draft an NBA starting 5 of players from the 4 teams remaining in the NBA playoffs. Surprise surprise: Mike Gill DOES NOT have LeBron James even in his starting 5! Todd Ranck however, thankfully, has LeBron starting at his PF position with Kevin Durant as his SF.

KG vs. Duncan
As with these sort of things, a debate will arise. For this segment, Mike and Todd got into a debate of which PF is the better fit for their team: Kevin Garnett vs. Tim Duncan. Both without question say that Tim Duncan is the best PF of all time, however Todd believes that Kevin Garnett is the better fit for his team.
We spent a few minutes with Tim Erensen, Executive Director of the Shoprite LPGA. The rain held off this afternoon and its shaping out to be a great weekend to watch the best 144 female golfers in the world go after the $1.5M purse. For more information on the tournament, visit the website.
