As expected the AT&T Center is packed and very loud for game one of this intrastate hate series between the Spurs and Mavericks. I'll be honest, I'm not worried about the Mavs, I'm worried about myself. They put the press right in the heart of darkness. And just about every Spurs fan knows I'm from the Dallas media. How? For one, the local San Antonio media sits in a different spot. Two, my name card at my seat reads "Matt Barrie, NBC Dallas". Wish me luck.
I'm The Enemy, Not Dirk.
