Both the Silver and Black Conferences have concluded in the San Antonio Spurs‘ Biggest Villain of All-time Tournament, and multiple matchups came down to a single percent difference. Before we move onto the Elite Eight round, let’s take a look at how the first-round showdowns ended up.
Black Conference – 1st Round Results
1. Zaza Pachulia (96%) defeats 8. Draymond Green (4%)
This result was never in doubt. Draymond Green is annoying, but he never quite did anything to the Spurs directly. Zaza Pachulia, on the other hand, has done plenty — and that shows in what was the biggest blowout of the first round.
5. Joey Crawford (56%) defeats 4. Phil Jackson (47%)
I must be honest. I wasn’t expecting Crawford to take this one. Although his infraction was pretty ridiculous, I feel like it was more of a one-off case as opposed to Jackson’s multiple disses. But hey, the people of Twitter have spoken, and Joey Crawford advances.
3. Shaquille O’Neal (69%) defeats 6. Mark Cuban (31%)
Mark Cuban was a pest during the Spurs’ multiple run-ins with the Mavericks, but the people decided overwhelmingly that Shaquille O’Neal is a bigger villain. His Lakers prevented the Spurs from having more rings, and the same was true the other way around.
2. Uncle Dennis (81%) defeats 7. Richard Jefferson (19%)
In another Kawhi-related blowout, Uncle Dennis Robertson had no problems dispatching Richard Jefferson in the first round. Jefferson didn’t give his all in San Antonio, but there are bigger fish to fry when it comes to whom to holding grudges.
