Even if it bums me to say it the Heat were just better over the end of the series.
I actually wouldn't go that far. Yeah they won, blah blah.... But the Spurs won 4 games. Blame dumb fucking luck or even a coaching decision, but the Spurs won game 6. If Duncan is out there, Spurs win.

What really aggravates me is that you could say the same for the Pacers/Heat. The Pacers won 4 of 7. If Vogel has Hibbert on the game in Game 1, the Pacers win. That's probably how I'm going to remember these playoffs. The way Miami played, especially with their roster, they had no business even being in the Finals.

I get what you're saying but at the end of the day you have to see the whole picture. Players, strategy, coaching, and luck, which is a part of it. The heat got it all, the Spurs lacked luck for sure on a couple of actions and honestly, what the hell was Green doing on the field for 75% of game 7 ? After the 1st quarter I would have kicked him out. I would have left Diaw on the field all-the-time. Lebron couldn't do shit when he was there. Honestly, bad coaching on the last 2 games, especially the last one. But dude, it's done. Yeah, what if Duncan would've been there at the end of game 6. What if Parker didn't injure his thigh during game 3, what if Ginobili hadn't lost all these balls during game 6, etc, etc.

They are both great teams. I am obviously a Spurs fan, but like I said, you got to recognize talent when you see it. Right nowt he Heat has got plenty, and luck was on their side. That's it.

It was still an amazing series and I'm really glad I slept like 3 hours a night for the last 2 weeks to follow them  :)

After a season that came down to losing with Heat, now I must endure that Spurs are keeping Splitter first than Ginobili? Im boiling in anger. This brazilian asshole did as many mistakes as Manu but Ginobili can back that up with 20 point games even if it is 6 games out of 82. Bullshit decision, to be honest I hope Manu lands on Rockets, Clippers and I dont care if they are my enemy team,I hope he lands on Lakers.There I said. Overpaid decision.

I thought you blamed their loss on Ginobili being an old man and that he was done! Haha. I've heard word that they still probably will resign him, but for cheap. And if he knows what's good for him, his best chance for success is under Pop.

That said, they did overpay Splitter. I think he'll get better (like Asik did over time with the Bulls/Rockets), but to pay like $10 mil a year? A little odd.

Well there you go ! Ginobili, 2 more seasons. The big 3 is still there.

Can't wait for next season.

I was mad yeah but Manu is the heart of the team. I do agree with you that I would have liked to have Asik instead of this soft Brazilian. Interesting moves on Clippers too.

Is it possible the Clippers might be the best in the West next season? Definitely ahead of Memphis, Denver and OKC now.

I hope so, they have to stop being underdogs and go on top. Reddick and Dudley came to Clippers and Bledsoe out.
Spurs got Belinelli who is a 38% three point, I hope Pop can make him play some defense.

Thibodeau got Belinelli to play some decent defense in the playoffs. I just hope his 3 pt consistency gets better.

Iguodala joined Warriors instead of Nuggets.
Howard about to close deal with Rockets.
Evans signed with Pelicans which I must say looks like the team doing the best moves
Knicks keeping Prigioni and Smith

I think I actually picked the Pelicans to make the playoffs last year. I'm gonna just keep picking them, haha. They've got a nice little core group forming there.

No, you picked the Hornets last year LOL
Howard went to Rockets and the Lakers fans are so fuming over his decision.

So, I don't know if you heard, but Parker, Diaw, De Colo and the rest of the French team won the Euro Championship, and it's a pretty big thing right now over here  :)

Parker was at his best (32 points against Spain people, Euro MVP, enough said) and Diaw was HUGE (on average 10+points per games, rebounds and assists all over the place). De Colo really improved since last year's Olympics and I think these 3 plus the new recruit Belinelli (that guy was amazing and it really sucks he didn't make it til the end with Italy) are gonna kick some ass for the Spurs - Popovich seems pleased about it.

Again, can't wait for the new season to start.

I truly hope so, we were so so close last season but we fucked it up on Game 6 and Game 7 was a lottery for grabs for both teams. Anyway, that is over and a new season is starting for my Spurs and still underdogs Clippers. I already got tickets for 2 games with Clippers and I cant wait to pay the NBA League pass :) October cant come any faster!

Here's hoping he's back to his old self. Supposedly he's been putting serious work on his jump shot, which makes me feel better, so he won't be forced to drive to the basket every other possession and risk injury.

Even if he has to do so, the guy worked out a lot and packed a few extra pounds so he is more built and ready to face those situations. Given he did not lose some agility in the middle, he should be even harder to stop.
