Fox Sports Southwest is airing the final installment of all twenty of the Spurs NBA Finals victories. Tonight are games 4 and 5 where (not to ruin it for you) but the Spurs close it out on their home floor on Father’s Day. What a way to celebrate.
A few thoughts from watching games 1 and 3:
- I had forgotten Danny Green’s complete takeover in the 4th frame of game 1 to put the Spurs over the top.
- Game 3 saw the best basketball in NBA history as well as the emergence of Kawhi Leonard. Even knowing how the story ends, watching this was fun. He’s a great player and this was his coming out party.
- So Pop alters the starting line-up adding Boris Diaw and as a result, Matt Bonner gets minutes off the bench before Tiago Splitter. Um, okay.
- Dude, did anyone notice that Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy, and Mark Jackson were the commentators in 2007 and 2014? Like nothing ever changed. Except for Mark Jackson being the coach of the Golden State Warriors for three seasons between those titles. Who was his replacement with Breen and Van Gundy? Steve Kerr. Guess who replaced him as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors.
- Does it bother anyone else that Mark Jackson refers to Jeff Van Gundy as “coach” but JVG doesn’t return the title?
- The Miami Heat mascot is just . . .
- LeBron James is an amazing athlete. I know I’ve joked in the past about the game 1 cramping, but he is unworldly in his ability to own the court. I have nothing but respect.
- However, Chris Bosh . . . well, I think this sums it up best . . .
All right, Pounders, enjoy the exciting conclusion to the “Drive For Five” that ends so sweetly.
