I think about Game 6 every day. Without exception. I think about every play. I can see LeBron’s first shot, and the rebound, and the second…
I’ve been quite lugubrious.

"The HEAT send their regards", whispered Allen as he slid the coldest of daggers into the collective heart of the Spurs.

Honestly I feel terrible for Flo Rida’s manager right now.

Ladies and gentlemen, tonight’s lead official is Joey Crawford. If he has to watch Tim Duncan and the Spurs celebrate a title, he’s going to end up ejecting himself for weeping.

Apparently, if you smack the Spurs (Game 2: MIA 103 - SA 84) they WILL smack you back (Game 3: SA 113 - MIA 77).

Manu passing

Everybody understandably loves this Manu pass, but I think I prefer THIS Manu pass:

Somehow, someway, this possession ended with Tony Parker scoring.

In your face, Vince Carter! How you like me now, Pat Garrity? Smell you later, Moochie Norris! Tracy McGrady is playing in the NBA Finals.

"Tim Duncan Realizin He Has Arms"

that’s all.

Turnovers. Turnovers.

NBA Playoffs throwback: Memphis Grizzlies vs. San Antonio Spurs, 2011, Game 5 of the Western Conference 1st round.

Gary Neal drains a buzzer beater to send the game into overtime. The Spurs would win the battle but lose the war. Memphis would advance to play the Thunder in the conference semifinals.

The rematch has begun and game 2 is tonight at 9PM ET on ESPN.

“I went from wanting to trade him on the spot to wanting to cook breakfast for him tomorrow morning. That’s the truth. When I talk to him and say, ‘Manu,’ he goes, ‘This is what I do.’ That’s what he’s going to tell me. I stopped coaching him a long time ago.”

NBA Playoffs throwback: Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs, 1991, Western Conference quarterfinals

The NBA on NBC intro as Don Nelson and Run TMC pay a visit to Mr. Robinson’s neighborhood. Listen to the novelty as Mike Fratello describes the Warriors style of “small ball”. San Antonio would win game 1 of the series and then lose 4-straight.

The series begins tonight at 9:30PM ET on TNT.

NBA Playoffs throwback: Los Angeles Lakers vs. San Antonio Spurs, 2004, Western Conference semifinals. 

One of the most incredible endings to a playoff game in NBA history. Kobe Bryant’s go-ahead shot is then answered by Tim Duncan’s fade away jumper that, if it had burned an extra .1 second, would have probably sealed the game for the Spurs. But it did not. Instead with .4 seconds left in the game, Derek Fisher’s prayer is answered.

A new chapter of an old rivalry begins in San Antonio on Sunday at 3:30pm EST on ABC.
