No one had a bigger turnaround than Ginobili. He might not have won or deserved the MVP, but he was the difference-maker.
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.
What more can be said about the Spurs? It probably doesn’t matter, since they only care about the court — where they are the real kings.

Danny Green made seven of the San Antonio Spurs’ finals-record 16 3-pointers, Tim Duncan had 12 points and 14 rebounds, and the Spurs clobbered the Miami Heat 113-77 on Tuesday night to take 2-1 lead in the series.
