San Antonio Spurs
Carmelo Anthony could very well walk away, yet for some reason Knicks fans will lose their minds, as if any chances they will ever have to win will go with him. How laughable.
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.
LeBron James went to the bench midway through the fourth quarter, took a seat and covered his eyes with his left hand. His night was over. His reign atop the NBA, also over.
The Spurs finished off a dominant run to their fifth NBA championship Sunday night, ending the Heat’s two-year title reign with a 104-87 victory that wrapped up the series in five games.
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.
The Spurs are a better basketball team than the Miami Heat. At this point, it might not even be that close, either.
Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and 14 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs dominated the Miami Heat again in a 107-86 victory Thursday night to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.
The Heat were losing, apparently, because Mario Chalmers wasn’t playing well. Huh? That is completely missing the true narrative of this series: The Miami Heat can’t stop the Spurs from scoring.
The San Antonio Spurs made 19 of their first 21 shots and hit 75.8 percent in the best-shooting half in NBA Finals history, and went on in the second half to cream the Miami Heat.
With their superstar making it to the finish this time, the Miami Heat won Game 2, just as they always do when they drop an opener.
The shark has officially been jumped with LeBron James. People have lost their damn minds. For anyone to question James’ toughness or heart after Thursday night’s game are clueless, lost, dishonest, and idiotic.
The Spurs beat the Heat. Miami couldn’t beat the heat. And there was the story of Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Tim Duncan had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Miami Heat 110-95 on Thursday night in Game 1 of the NBA Finals inside a sweltering AT&T Center.
