The Western Conference Finals has been criticized for its lack of drama. Well, there is no drama since there are no spoiled brats, inflated egos and cry-babies. What we have are classy players. We’ve already known about Tim Duncan’s unmatched poise and demeanor, but check out Marc Gasol in a display of sportsmanship fit for Chicken Soup for the Soul. Gasol stops to check Parker as he hit his face inadvertently (not like Wade) instead of running back on offense. Some will knock him for being too nice, but good manners are hard to shake off, just as it’s hard to acquire.
