KoMe always talks tough but his history shows his team always folds and mails it in when faced with dire prospects:
'99: Down 0-3 to S.A. Spurs.
Throws up a ton of bricks and his team in blown out in the final game of the series. Fans loudly boo him in the last game at the Forum. I was there.
'03: Down 3-2 to S.A. Spurs:
Faced with the prospect of having to win at home and then G7 in S.A., they are blown out at home, leaving him and Fisher crying on the bench.
'04: Down 1-3 to Detroit:
Blown out, game is over by the 3rd period.
'06: Game 7 in Phoenix:
After blowing a 3-1 series lead, the do not show up for game 7 and are run out of the building by halftime.
'08: Down 3-2 to Boston:
Having to win the last two games in Boston they are run out of the building by halftime. Biggest blowout ever in a Finals close-out game. 131-92
'11: Down 0-3 to Dallas:
Run out of the building by halftime, resorting to cheapshots on a 5'8" player.
See the trend here? In every series most games were competitive, but they have a habit of mailing it in for the close-out game.
