Man this is going to be a tough one. This one is going to go down to wire. Do I hit the bar, a restaurant, kick it at the homies crib or throw down at my spot for the NBA Finals? So many options, but either way I’m going to be watching every game of the NBA Finals.
It’s finally time for the best of the best to square off. The San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat will go head to head for the NBA Championship with two franchises that are similar but oh so different at the same time. The Spurs have a Big 3 of their own in Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. The Spurs have dominated throughout the last decade behind the brilliance of Coach Pop and the legend Tim Duncan, winning four championships. The way these two teams have gone about things are far from the same but the thing they have in common is dominance.
The Spurs are that one team that are always good. Regardless of what season it is, these guys ball. A lot of it has to do with Coach Pop, he gets the most out of all his players and probably has the best system in the league. I remember being a kid and watching the Spurs dominate and win rings and now I’m in my early twenty’s and they’re still dominating. There’s always a team effort from these guys and at the same time they have superstars who can create their own shot. If you need a bucket Manu, Tim, or Tony can give it to you. Ginobili and Parker are definitely Hall of Famers but Tim Duncan is amazing. This guy has got it done consistently since the late 90’s and has shown no sign of slowing down. He’s close in age to the recently retired Jason Kidd and Grant Hill but there’s no sign of them showing down. With Duncan never losing in a NBA Finals series and going for his 5th title, how can you bet against him?
Now the Miami Heat on the other hand, well this legacy is new. While I was kid when the Spurs started their domination, I was a freshmen in college when the Heat really took off. We all know the story, LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami and started the new dynasty. That was 3 years ago and now this is their 3rd year returning the NBA Finals. Every year they are the championship favorites and that hasn’t changed this year (they are the defending champs). The supporting cast stepped up against Indiana in game 7, but they have been struggling during this year’s postseason. At the same time they have LeBron James, enough said. So how can you bet against them?
This is going to be one hell of a Finals and I will be somewhere getting hype watching every game.
