NBA Finals 2013 Spurs Heat Game 1 m

“That’s what I play for, is to win championships,’’ James said.

“I’ve lost enough, I’ve lost two finals,’’ James said. “I don’t need any more fuel from losing the finals.’’

“It’s a great opportunity,’’ James said Wednesday. “I have something in me that they took in ’07. Beat us on our home floor, celebrated on our home floor. I won’t forget that. You shouldn’t as a competitor. You should never forget that. It’s the same group of guys, for the most part.’’ – nypost

T

he elderly “one last time” San Antonio Spurs will take their talents to South Beach to take on the deadly defending champion Miami Heat for game 1 of the NBA Finals (9PM EST on ABC) tonight! The Spurs have been warriors so far this post-season and made many into believers! In fact, if you follow the numbers all four times (99, 03, 05, 07) the Spurs made it to the Finals they won that year! The Heat aren’t having nothing this year, and even at the end of their ropes find a way to win! Besides almost matching (27 games) the legendary Lakers winning streak (33 games) and having outright home-court advantage in the Playoffs (66-16), the Heat have made mince meat of opponents in the post-season with exception to the Indiana Pacers, who fought scrappy and played hard for almost the entire Eastern Conference Final series! Lebron is confident that the Heat will win, and also said he is seeking revenge for the Spurs beating him and the Cavs back in 2007! Spurs’ Tim Duncan, who recently went through a messy divorce after a 12-year marriage, is still BIG on the block, and will put it all on the line to win (again)! The Spurs also picked up a boost right before the post-season by signing Tracy McGrady K T-Mac, who it may be his last chance to get a chip! Read more after the jump…

Spurs fined $250K for benching players

The big controversy surrounding this NBA Finals series is the fact that the Spurs sat Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, and Tim Duncan for the first match-up this season, and Lebron and Wade ate donuts on the sideline for the second game! The Spurs got handed a $250K fine, while the Heat avoided a fine by keeping Wade and Lebron in the building! Coincidentally, the Heat ended up winning the second game without their stars?! Also, it is a serious culture clash with the villainous strange face making but dominating (media-driven) Miami Heat, and fundamentally sound well-coached machine in the San Antonio Spurs! Tune in!
