Keidel: Melo Won’t Mend Miami, But Departure Would Help Knicks

Schmeelk: Leonard Deserved The MVP, But Manu Was Spurs’ Game-Changer

Keidel: Tim Duncan, Spur Of The Moment

In the age of me over we ball, Duncan is a corrupt cliche – a winner.We judge stars by rings more than ever. The Heat didn’t win; LeBron won. Kobe or Shaq won a decade ago. But when the Spurs win, Duncan is part of a greater whole, lost in a selfless, Vulcan coda.

Schmeelk: It’s Simple — Heat Can’t Stop The Spurs From Scoring
