The 2013 NBA Finals can be summed up in four words: Ray Allen’s Miracle Shot.
Yes, the Spurs remember that all too well. They have waited for this moment. They have waited for a rematch with the two time defending NBA champions the Miami Heat. Let’s face it, the Spurs was looking ahead towards the Heat after disposing of the eighth seeded Dallas Mavericks in the first round, the fifth seeded Portland Trail Blazers in the second round and the seconded seeded Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals.
Coach Popovich had to constantly remind his players last years finals. These same Spurs who are lead by three of the biggest (yet underrated) players of all time in Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli. They are the ones that have carried this team throughout the entire season.
Now it is the rematch. The whole world wants it. Everyone expected it. The Spurs are poised to take back what is rightfully theirs and continue to cement their legacies as one of the best teams in NBA history. They have played almost flawlessly throughout the playoffs and Tim Duncan is turning back the clock with his stellar play (see game six of the Western Conference Finals.) Going up against the Heat will be no easy task. Lebron James is playing like Lebron James and his supporting cast will show up for the Finals.
This is all about taking back whats theirs for the Spurs. There will be no Ray Allen Miracle Shots. Tim Duncan deserves a final ring before he rides off to the sunset.
It’s gonna take a hell if a lot more than a lucky rebound and a lucky three to beat the Spurs this year.
The revenge is almost complete. Spurs in Six.
