Thursday the NBA Finals begin with the San Antonio Spurs hosting the 2 time defending World Champion Miami Heat. Being a Knicks fan ( stop laughing, I can hear you) I have refrained from writing about the NBA, but since it’s the finals I’ll do it. I think the Spurs are on a mission this year to win the title because they really blew it last year.They were up 3-2 in the series and had a 5 point lead with 30 seconds left in the game. The reasons are many why they lost,missed free throws,Tim Duncan on the bench at that time etc. but they should not have lost that game.Miami won that game and game 7 to claim their repeat championship.Miami had the home court advantage last year but the Spurs have it this year.Also the format has changed, instead of the 2-3-2 format they had been using like baseball,they have gone back to the 2-2-1-1-1 format.How this will affect the two teams remains to be seen.Like I said earlier the Spurs are on a mission to avenge last year.Miami on the other hand is looking to 3 peat which would put them among the best ever.LeBron James is looking to get closer to Michael Jordan as the greatest player of all time.Tim Duncan has 4 rings himself and is looking for number 5. With last year as a backdrop, this should be a great series.That’s my opinion.
