Granted, LJ joined the league right out of high school.
10 seasons strong. Look what Bill Russell achieved in 13 seasons!
Blame Popovich for keeping Manure Ginobili in the game, he singlehandedly may have lost the Spurs the game. Dude is terrible these days, he's had 5 bad games out of 6 in the finals but he was in the game practically the entire time it seemed. Not to mention that blatant flagrant on Lebron where he elbowed him in the neck, he should be suspended for that. Spoelstra tried to match Popovich's bad coaching by putting that slug Wade in for Miller and upsetting the nice run the Heat were having, but Greg could not be outdone. LeBron delivered an incredibly clutch performance in the 4th, yeah there were some mistakes but the guy was just exhausted by the end of the game.
James was in the league at a younger age. The Rafa/Fed analogy about maturing at different ages applies.
Lakers Celtics game 7 was awful. Never have seen that mentioned as a great game before.
San Antonio gave that away. Gotta tackle bosh and or Allen before that 3 goes up. Gotta make free throws. Miami didn't deserve that win.
ok i youtubed it. maybe not good basketball in any sense of the word. but it was memorable for me in that:
1 - boston blew a 3-2 series lead by losing two straight at home.
2 - kobe shot a bricktastic 6/24.
3 - boston lost.
Games 6/7 were in LA that year (10).
Agreed, Ginobili did well in game 5 but put up a lot of minutes that he wasn't used to.
He was probably not in shape to go at it two games in a row.
Popovich should have noticed this very early but didn't.
Popovich is very sharp but this game his hunches turned out poorly, it can happen to any coach.
Great job by Joey Crawford! Way to swallow your whistle at the end of the game!!
Vegas does not think much of the Spurs in game 7, Heat is a - 6 pts tomorrow. I was expecting -3, -4 at most.
Jeez. Everybody simmer. I wasn't comparing lebron and jordan. But when you win people forget your mistakes. I just used jordan as an example. I could have easily have used kobe. They both made mistakes and missed important shots, but since they won a lot it's mostly forgotten.
As a tennis example, no one is going to remember Feds worse losses and chokes, they're going to remember him as an incredibly dominant tennis player with the most grand slams.
Watching game 7 with a bunch of old friends with tons of drinks. Should be fun
go spurs :shock:
Counting down the hours already. It's going to be a long Friday on no sleep. Hopefully the Spurs pull it out and it will be all worthwhile.
Man, NBA advertisement is really working. I'm seeing more and more idiotic posts on this thread.
wow just look at the foul against ginobili, not called of course
Probably the last night in which this thread is relevant, enjoy Game 7 guys!
Spurs never travel, eh?
yeah he did travel
I think he was fouled before the travel, but whatever
Btw, Wade has got to go
Really good defense, or are both teams just spent and foggy from last game?
did he call bank shot:twisted:??
Looks like the Spurs/Pistons finals
Jeff Van Gundy is saying they're all gased. With him being a NBA coach all these years, I guess he knows what he's doing.
Kawhi Leonard, how is he getting all these rebounds?! Someone box him out!
I dont know what he called, but Duncan looked like he was going to kill him if he didn't shoot it. Hahaha.
The defence in this game so far has been really, really good.
Leonard has 10 rebounds in the 1st half...
please SA win this
Virtually equal going into the second half. Just can't call it.
Please Pops take out Danny Greene ASAP.
I'm not liking the Spurs' timeout situation. They only have 3 left and it's still the 3rd quarter. Meanwhile, the Heat have 5 left.
Sick shooting Chalmers.
Kawhi to the rescue, Btw, can one great game seven determine an MVP?
Come on spurs leggo!!!!
Time out situation now even. Way to hang in there for a good half a quarter without burning another timeout SA.
Greene has to be take out of this game. Come on.
Might wanna take out manu too.
Greene, you mean Ginobli
The task is getting harder and harder for the Spurs here.
Duncan needs to get Chris Bosh his 6th foul.
It's supposed to be hard, it's the Finals!!! Ginobli!!!!!!!!!
That was a foul???
Man, Danny Green is getting grilled by Jeff Van Gundy in this game.
With some many Spurs Mistakes I am surprised it close.
Let's see Jeff go
