    There are a different ways you can build a winning team, that's always a good thing. It's interesting that the two best teams in the NBA go about it in totally different ways and are playing each other in the finals.

    I like the way the Spurs go about it, every member of the team buys into a specific system and everyone can come in and do the job. I thought it was interesting when Miami went for a lineup without a PG, the way the Spurs engineered switches to get the match up Parker wanted. In the third Parker performed some wizardry and was hitting floaters over Miller every possession it seemed, then Ginobili came in and just finished them off.

    I probably watch 70% of the Spurs games through ESPN here or on streams, they're the only team that can keep me awake at 3am! Hopefully they can finish the job off, the series has been so entertaining though that I wouldn't mind it going to 7 :)

    Barkley: "You wouldn't even know if Gary Neal was alive if it weren't for Pop." LOL

    And Pop getting blinded by Craig's suits.

    DAMN! Mike Miller just got baptized by Kawhi Leonard! :shock:

    If the Spurs win this series, I'm going to miss Tim Duncan schooling Chris Bosh.

    LOL! Just saw Mario Chalmers tried the "Rajon Rondo behind the back fake" and ate it.

    LeBron James refuses to be great and refuses to take more of the game on his shoulders. He turns down shots constantly and seems to be thinking too hard. Or maybe he's just scared?

    Or maybe he just wants the other 10 players to contribute.

    Nah he's over thinking it. He has been deferring too much.

    If them 10 other guys haven't shown up by the end of the 1st half AND it's elimination game, then forget them, and just do it yourself. I'm not going to gamble what could be the last half on the other guys.

    Honestly he's just too scared of the moment when the moment gets really really big. He's deferring too much and now he's trying to get himself going but it's not like his shots are very committed. Wade needs to come up big, I think.

    Everything is a jump shot for the Heat.

    Meanwhile, every made basket for the Spurs looks like a designed play.

    See that open shot that Bosh passed up there too? He refuses to pull the trigger too and has done most series. :lol:

    LeBron was crying on one end, meanwhile, Tony Parker got a layup.

    Alright, that marks two layup because the Heat players were crying on two possessions.

    Tell me about it. Are you guys stupid. Elimination game. Shut up and play D.

    Definitely not game set and match with a 10 point lead...

    About as good a start as the Heat could have hoped for in the fourth.

    Tied at 82. :(

    I hate it when the Spurs get into a funk. That's all it takes for the Heat to make a charge. Now the Heat up 2.

    If the Heat squeak out this game it will be a little bit of a Houdini act given how they've been outplayed for the majority of the game. You were probably right, the Spurs will win the series in 6 is what you predicted. Well, it might be 6 it might be 7 but given what I've seen I have to bow down to your superior foresight.

    James really aggressive, I guess sh*t got real because he's done away with his headband.

    Naw, he's mad because now people can see his hairline.

    The removal of his headband was a secret code message to the refs, clever move.

    Parker and Ginobili can't hit anything. Duncan hasn't scored in the 4th. Green has been MIA. Someone on the Spurs needs to step up.... like NOW!

    Big turnover by Wade. Manu hits both FT for a 4pt lead.

    huge 3 points by LeBron who likes to switch between LeBrick and LeBoss on a regular basis.

    LBJ nails the 3. Spurs take TO up by 2 with 20 sec left.
