With a must-win game six looming for the SuperSonics, a lot of pundits are already penciling the San Antonio Spurs into the Western Conference Finals. Instead of publicly brandishing their green and gold, many Seattle fans are privately singing the blues.
The people over at SuperSonicSoul aren't having any of that.
Cheer up, sour-puss. This series is far from over. When the Sonics got off to another fast start this season, everyone expected them to collapse by December again. They didn't. When the Sonics limped into the playoffs, everyone thought they would lose to the veteran Sacramento Kings. They won. When the Sonics got blown out the first two games against the Spurs, everyone thought the Sonics would get swept. They won the next two.
