Stage 2: Anger

Kubler-Ross’ second stage of dealing with grief and loss involves anger, an emotion I have a great deal of personal experience with. I am fueled by anger and panic. It literally controls my every word and action. With this in mind, why did Pop take Duncan out of Game 6 with 28 seconds to go and a five point lead? Popovich owes me a championship. I know he’s already provided 4, but as a spoiled Spurs fan I am not immune to the disease of more.

Too painful to watch again. Maybe I’ll be ready in 2021.
