Spurs Guard Tony Parker: Plans on Attacking Westbrook

He's going to cut him down with a herring, I'm guessing.

Since the Spurs and the Thunder are two of the most non-controversial teams in the NBA, this is the sort of thing our fan-bases get treated to by the media at large during the series buildup. Take it away, Tony Parker:

"I'm definitely going to go at him...It's not going to be like Dallas or the Lakers, where their point guards are not as aggressive. I'm going to go at him and make sure he works a little bit."

Aaaaand...cut.

In the interest of covering the exchanges between the two teams it is worth our while to report this sort of thing, but you can probably guess where at least I am coming from in on this topic. Taken in a vacuum, the above quote might be seen as fightin' words, like Parker is looking to call out Westbrook for a massive free-for-all brawl.

In context however, all Parker is saying is, "We're going to use the same tactic that we use against every team in the league." It just so happens that in this round, Parker's match-up is against a guard who can probably match Parker's offensive production, so Parker has to go hard in order to make sure Westbrook doesn't come out on top. (If anything, Parker is taking a swipe at the Lakers & Mavs guards, not Westbrook) Even though this is one of the most common-sense statements in the history of ever, we still get this:

Conflict: manufactured. So there you go.

If the above clip is not ridiculous enough on its own, take a look at the clip below and then re-watch.
