    How the Spurs' road to championship redemption began on a heartbreaking night in Miami

    When Heroes Rise

    SAN ANTONIO – Everyone else bobbed into the center of the court, confetti tumbling down, and all these years later, all these triumphs and all those tears, the San Antonio Spurs laughed and danced and moved to the championship groove now. Near the bench, basketball's best general manager met eyes with its best coach, and R.C. Buford and Gregg Popovich wrapped into the longest, surest hug of the night, squeezing tighter and tighter. They let the tears cleanse them of the Spurs' longest year, the most jagged journey of all.

    The Spurs is a great team, with one of the best sportsman in the game in Tim Dunkin.

    Just don't forget the amount of fatigue which the Heat had. For the last three years and also this long season, they have been in the extended season compared to others which go fishing at the end of the regular or a series or two in the playoffs. That wear and tear doesn't go away with the short break. They looked like they were on borrowed time while getting spanked

    I understand, but this is no excuse. Look at what the Bulls had to do, the exact same thing. Jordan even had a sick game in the finals and still pulled it out. Sorry, but if people (not you) are going to compare Lebron to Jordan, and say that he is better, then lets do it for everything.

    Peace!

    LeBron is not Jordan.... nor never said he was Jordan... and the Heat are not the Bulls... not made up as the Bulls, follow the same strategy, in the same city, within the same era...
    It's like comparing the Bulls accomplishments to that of the Celtic dynasty because the Bulls didn't win as many.

    Lebron is definitely not Jordan, but they have labeled him, "best player on the planet." So far as I know, Lebron hasn't rejected the labeling, which causes folk to automatically compare him to Jordan. In all fairness to Lebron though, he calls Jordan the GOAT, greatest of all time.

    Lebron is still the best , he has 2 rings,played in 4 finals,and played great against the spurs. his team is subpar, the difference was san antonio's bench. Oh yeah and the AC conspiracy in game 1 lol. last time I checked the Heat beat the spurs last year, Miami needs to re-up and reload as the spurs did. Never have I seen such a great player be hated on so hard. Lebron is a better player then any one i the league,he just happens to have a weak supporting cast. Possibly a weak coach as well,spolstra never found a stargtegy to stop sa's offense.

    Most people are saying Lebron is the best player on the planet.

    As far as finding a strategy to stop the Spurs, never could happen Therious, the Spurs are the Champions for that reason; plus, Kawhi Leonard did a superb job defensing Lebron.

    If you need more details, here are some Threads I started:

    Despite disappointing Finals loss, Heat may be LeBron's best option next year

    true , I cant front I loth the spurs (Knicks fan here I hve my reasons) but I respect good b-ball. SA earned it,Lenoard balled out of control. Personally I would have leveled a few hard fouls,maybe a flagrant or two,these players today just don't play that physical ball like in the 90's and early 2000's. Remember when the suns were beating the spurs and robert horry flagranted nash, which changed the whole series? how bad do ya want it? guess Miami didn't want it that bad. I don't mean hurt anybody,but no way should players just be parading to hoop with out hard nose fouls! If you can't beat them,play dirty lol.

    but it's over and SA balled hard, and earned their ring.
