This is the kind of situation that determines real champions! The Spurs and the
Heat are the real deals right now, unquestionably the two most powerful teams in
the NBA and in a class by themselves. It would be a monumental moment in
history if Miami comes back from this seemingly huge deficit. But I don't
think they can do it. Then again, anything can happen, and they do have Lebron
James, arguably one of the best that ever played the game.So my
heart is with the Heat, but my head says, "Don't think so. Ain't
going to happen!"
"Why not us" you ask Lebron. I'll tell you why! The Spurs deserve
to win the title. This is a team that was built from the ground up with a bunch
of good guys that has a coach that teaches them to play the right way. The Heat
on the other hand were put together with superstars that worked out a deal
amongst themselves to join together and transform a team into a championship
contender. They don't need a coach like conventional teams because they
have better talent than anyone else. What's wrong with that some might
ask? To me it is another advantage that big market teams have when they can
exceed the payroll limits of the NBA and bring together free agents that want
the bright lights and the notoriety they get playing in these markets. Yeah
it's not illegal or even unethical, but it still stinks for small market
teams like the Jazz that will not be able to manufacture a team this way. I say,
go Spurs, kick their fannies and win one for the small market teams.
Americanvet... Perfect! Happy Fathers Day...
I'm rooting for the Spurs to win...simply because i love how they play the
game...the jazz used to be like that...a lot of passing...a lot of rotations...a
lot of off the ball screens...that's what basketball should all be
about...not about highlight reel dunks...from the clippers....its about
precision passing and team play...Last year...honestly its the spurs
championship to lose...i always thought that the Spurs played great...and they
should have won game 6...this year...i hope they close out...Lebron is
athletically gifted...he is a big guy...with a lot of speed...but i dont think
he would be in the top 5 greatest ever...usually the guys that are in contention
with the title of the greatest ever...are the guys who stuck with their
team...elevated their game and the game of his teammates...to take the
championship...not to call your friends and say...look we need to team
up...sports should be about competition...
Why not us? Because you the greatest player in the history of basketball quits
when the going gets tough.
