As good as Tim Duncan has been over the course of his career, there is no megastar on the San Antonio Spurs. This particular championship was a true team effort.
I doubt it will be the case, but this series should put all those outdated and nauseating LeBron James narratives out to pasture once and for all.
There are moments every once in a while that remind you why you sit in front of a television and watch all those games, and Tuesday night was one of them.
What should really scare the Miami Heat is that Sunday night should have been a win for them. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined for 66 points and shot a combined 25-of-53.
Miami Heat owner Micky Arison had a message as he walked to the winning locker room.
The Miami Heat entered Game 4 of the 2013 NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs knowing they couldn’t lose and go down 3-1 in the series and have a chance of winning the Larry O’Brien trophy. But the Heat’s Big Three responded like the three All-Stars that they are, combining for 82 points and lead Miami to a 109-93.
The Heat changed things up, and now it is time for Gregg Popovich to adjust. Is there anyone else you would want in that film room and on the practice floor figuring out how to counter those moves more than Popovich?
All in all, this should be a very exciting and competitive series. San Antonio will likely have to win two games in Miami to win the series. It’s a tall order, but if any team can win a Game 7 in Miami, it’s a veteran team like the Spurs.
Gregg Popovich only has one job: winning a championship.
It has been the Heat’s ability to slow down the Thunder offense that has been the difference so far in the series.
The Spurs face the Nets on Monday night looking for their sixth victory in seven games as they near the end of a nine-game road trip.
It has been a year of change in the sports world with the three longest tenured coaches in the three major sports retiring. The Braves’ Bobby Cox, the Titans’ Jeff Fisher and now Jerry Sloan has resigned from the Utah Jazz.
At the risk of redundancy…the New York Knicks are a good basketball team. Just ask the San Antonio Spurs.
The Spurs hope to contain the NBA’s highest-scoring team and become the first club to reach 30 wins Tuesday night against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
