God Bless Spurs... They sure looked blessed! Is what it is, respect to them, I've had my fun the past few years, torch has to be passed some time. "Let the chips fall where they lay."

Heat won back to back championships, something only 5 teams have done, and as great as Spurs are they're not one of them. As bad as these losses are it takes nothing away from how dominant the Heat have been the past few years, and it is what it is. I had my fun celebrating all those wins, and I will be a good sport about these losses too.. Its the way the ball bounces and if this is what everybody wants, so be it, let them have their fun now, Lord knows I've had mine! I only hope Heat can develop their system of defense and hyper efficient offense into some kind of longevity resembling what the Spurs have done the past 17 years..

Oh, how cute.

Listen, now that all the "greatest of all time" hyperbole (which I've never indulged in by the way) is finally put to rest can we just get back to enjoying Lebron's otherworldy game on its own merits? The guy will finish like Wilt Chamberlain or more particularly Oscar Robertson, a HOF legend with a few rings and all-time stats. Ain't no shame in that. Personally, I'm happy, I can enjoy Lebron in peace without all the extra hype attached. Would I have preferred to win the Championship? Of course, but I am a good sport about things, particularly tough losses. Is what it is. The Ball Don't Lie, especially when it bounces against your team. At the least, I can say that Lebron had a fair chance by making it to the Finals (AHEM: UNLIKE THE ROCKETS), which is exactly what he and the Heat set out to do. They put themselves in the position to win not 1, not 2, not 3.. Championships and while they didn't win them, we'd all be foolish not at least recognize that they put themselves in the honest position to do just that, which no other team since 1987 had.. Also Lebron is young, I think the entire NBA realizes that he will win at least one more ring, more than likely do what Kobe did and try for one more 3 pete, though clearly Pat Riley will have to retire, because ever since he Trademarked the term "Threepete" NONE of his teams have won it, even with three distinct opportunities now. He jinxed himself!!

Respect to the Spurs.

Respect to Spurs, they were a phenomenal team, and by far, of all their Championships this was finally a very legitimate win. They've beat a lot of mediocre teams, but beating the two-time Champs was a statement. It also is telling of just how athletic the NBA has become, its not that Spurs were that much better than Heat, its that clearly by all the horrible shooting (from a Heat team that ranked number 1 in offensive efficiency 4 consecutive years no less) that all the mileage wore the Heat down, which is surprising, I would have honestly took that bet against the Spurs a hundred times thinking it would be them who would get fatigued! The NBA is so much more competitive its the reason why we haven't seen a 3-pete in 12 years, and why we haven't seen a Finals rematch since 1998.. Teams are just more competitive, bringing it harder in every game, on every possession, and those transcendental talents can only go so far now. I dare say that even Jordan wouldn't have won 6 rings in today's NBA, sure there was more physical play in his era but today there is simply more talent around on every team. Jordan feasted on shit teams and beat a handful of great teams in Finals, meanwhile there were 6 or 8 legitimate Championship contenders this year. The NBA is better than ever, and this series I think proves it. In the 1980s or 1990s Heat would have won this game because the earlier rounds over the past few years wouldn't have been as tiring as they were the past few years.

Respect to Spurs, they shut me up with emphasis!! Of course this doesn't somehow erase the Heat's recent 2 banners, it doesn't negate that win or lose the Championship went through Miami the past four consecutive years as gatekeeper, and that we all know that at 29 Lebron will win at least one more ring..

If anything, FINALLY we can stop all this hyperbole. NO, Lebron is not the best player of all time. He will more than likely finish as a HOF legend like Wilt Chamberlain or Oscar Robertson, a few rings and a few unbeatable all-time stats. Isn't that enough or has the #Hashtag era truly ruined good sportsmanship??

I told you so.

Much respect to the Heat, who never resorted to dirty play or angry play. They lost like the champs they are. The Spurs dominated like the better team they are.

Timmy D - 5 championships in 16 years, Nice. Must be great being a San Antonio fan.

BTW, I did NOT like when the Heat crowd booed their team. That felt mean.

when driven people finally win the championship, or achieve the goal they sought, the emotions are rarely of triumph, instead they focus on RELIEF! That is what the greats always say.

Here is the greatest coach of the past 20 years feeling RELIEF

It was awesome to see

So eloquently said, Rob! I have no doubt I may be in the minority saying this, but here in the Great State of Texas, the San Antonio are now the greatest sports franchise......sorry Dallas Cowboys.


The San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat have now played twelve straight NBA Finals games. The Spurs won seven times and the Heat won five.

I was so pleased to see Kawhi Leonard named Finals MVP on Father’s Day......six years after his dad was murdered at Compton Car Wash he owned.

LeBron 19 pts, teammates 18 pts.
LeBron 6-11 FG, teammates 6-21 FG.

LeBron shot 44% in his 4 previous Finals appearances combined, his highest was 48% in '10-11......LeBron shot 57% in this year's Finals = improvement!

Chris Bosh on these Spurs: "Best team I ever saw. Best team I ever played against."

SA +214 in playoffs (+14 vs Dal, 7 gms); (+67 vs Por, 5); (+63 vs OKC, 6); (+70 vs Mia, 5). Awfully impressive title run, even w/ 7 L's


 


The Heat bought a short term Dynasty, the Spurs built and are leaving a forever Legacy:
 



This picture tells the truth when stacking up the all time greats:

Wait up Bytor, if we reverse that list at put ALL those players at 29 lebron is better so be careful what you ask for. Jordan hadn't even seen the second round of the playoffs until Phil Jackson arrived, meanwhile Lebron has never lost in the first round period. At 29 it looks like this

Jordan 2 Rings, 2 MVPs, 2 Gold Medals
Tim Duncan 2 Rings
Kobe 3 rings 1 MVP
Lebron 2 Rings, 5 Finals, 4 MVPS, 2 Gold Medals...


come off it bro, in 20 years if people who never saw ANY of these players play basketball just looked at the stats they would think you're insane for snubbing Lebron. Is he the greatest all time? Hardly. But lets not kid ourselves like his achievements don't at least put him in the same conversation as any of the "greats"

Respect to the Spurs, its the Spurs who won the Championship, but Lebron's legacy is self-assured on its own. If he retired TOMORROW with 2 medals, 2 rings, 4 MVPS, he'd be HOF first ballot and could be talked into top20 players all time...

Lets see where his career finishes before he just shit on him. Also, give the guy some respect, he is probably the single most shitted on athlete in sports history, yet he never lashes out, and he just keeps playing his game his way.

ALSO THIS WHOLE BUILT VS BOUGHT IS BULLSHIT. SPURS HAVE THE INTERNATIONAL ALL-STAR TEAM STACKED WITH SOME OF THE BEST TALENT IN THE WORLD. Heat picked up the equivalent but of NBA veterans.. really your argument is sensationalist hyperbole, and I'll forgive you.

ALSO, really, what is wrong with Heat free-agent asserting their power as players in negotiations? Why should it be all the owners way? Why should teams be trapped in rookie deals and weird trades and all kinds of salary nonsense. Shouldn't players in a players league have a say where they play and for how much? Why should these guys "have to take pay cuts to build the team" when the players bring in all the money?? If anything, you ask me, Spurs players ROB themselves of the kind of financial opportunities that being in the NBA is supposed to afford...

You're celebrating, and I won't take that joy from you, you being out of your right mind and all, especially HOW I DON'T SEE IN ANYWAY ALL THAT SPURS LOVES YOU GOT HELPS YOUR ROCKETS DO ANY BETTER THAN LEBRON.

Call me when James Harden or Dwight Howard have 2 rings and 4 mvps yo

Also, short term dynasty???? Are you predicting the future now? How do you know that what the Heat have done isn't a system?

They have been the most efficient offense in the NBA 3 consecutive years. They have been in the top-3 ball moving teams for 3 consecutive years. They have been on of the top defenses in the NBA 3 consecutive years.

That is a system. If Heat duplicate the style of play they will be a long term threat the way Spurs or Lakers have been... Trust that.

4 Finals appearance in 9 years, 3 trophies??? That is NOT SHORT TERM. Fuck you.

Twenty years ago tonight was Game Five at Madison Square Garden:

 




The Knicks won, just not sure if many remember as NBC went split screen to show the slow motion OJ white bronco chase:

Being two days removed from Game Five and everyone has had time to pause and exhale, the numbers reveal just how dominating the San Antonio Spurs were.

After the Heat went up 22-6, the Spurs went on a 59-22 run making the score 65-44. It's hard to imagine a run of that magnitude, especially against the defending champs, but we all watched it happen.

Even with Tony Parker going 0-10 from behind the arc, the Spurs still bludgeoned the Heat from the 3 point line......and let's not forget the Spurs team defense holding the heat to eleven second quarter points and just 18 third quarter points.

So hard to believe that same Spurs team who did this to the defending champions somehow got swept in four regular season match-ups against the Houston Rockets.

Remember that Heat team got swept by the Nets in season and beat them in playoffs, swept by the Knicks the year before that, beat them too, and swept by the Bulls in 2010/11 season, beat them as well.

Its not just the Finals, Spurs put on one of the most dominant playoff runs in NBA playoffs history, quite literally if they hadn't lost a few games in there they would have set records, but since they went 16-7 it puts them squarely in 6th all time (statistically speaking) Finals run. Of course Heat still had their own record by being only the third team ever to have 4 consecutive Finals appearances and also just the 6th team to ever win back to back (including your The Dream era Rockets ) which Spurs still lack. So all in all, while it sucks for Heat to lose, it didn't exactly work out too bad for either team..

For playoff teams like the Spurs the season doesn't necessarily count

Did you check that Janet Weiss post?

"Please take a moment to admire the great LeBron for the special talent he is. It never gets old looking at the King's history. So many accomplishments Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan will never achieve:

1. Bronze 2006
2. Bronze 2004
3. NBA finals sweep 2007
4. Go entire Finals scoring 20 pts only one time
5. Quit on his team the year after he promises a championship
6. Dunked on by a highschool kid and then confiscate tape
7. Bail on the dunk contest 9 times
8. Only able to win a ring with 2 superstars
9. 7th best player in NBA finals series.
10. Average 1.8 pts in the 4th quarter of NBA finals.
11. Lose not 1, not 2, but 3 times in the Finals.
12. Host a national televised TV show to leave his team
13. Play on the same team as his moms boyfriend
14. Go 2 for 18 in an NBA playoff game.
15. Get stuffed by a player under 6 feet (Nate Robinson)
16. Flop every single game in the playoffs
17. Choke 4 out of 5 finals games by dropping FG% by 18
18. Vow revenge for 2007 sweep, then proceed to choke again"

not written by me but laughed at by me wholeheartedly
