Whoa boy. That’s the first thought you might have after switching from NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs–elevating a beautiful game to some of its prettiest heights in decades–to Las Vegas Summer League San Antonio Spurs. It’s amusing to hear the announcers refer to the teams as “The Spurs” or “The Wizards” when there is so little relationship between them. We are spoiled as Spurs fans to get to watch such…

Spurs in 5. That was my initial prognosis for the 2014 Finals. I didn’t share it because a) I believe firmly in jinxes, and; b) my prediction was based off of nothing but intuition and a glance at the calendar. Sure, I believed the Spurs were the better team and would win the series. But five games felt ambitious, even for this most ambitious of Spurs fans. No, I chose…

                               

Miami 87, San Antonio 104 Spurs win series 4-1 The demons have all been slain, the last ghost has been exorcised, the journey has drawn to its glorious close, the cycle complete: the Spurs are once again NBA Champions. After a sluggish start that revealed the Heat’s last gasp, the Spurs woke up and worked their way back into the game. After being down as many as 14 early, they…

San Antonio 107, Miami 86 Spurs lead series 3-1 Game 3 of these NBA Finals will go down in the record books, but Game 4 was the Spurs’ masterpiece. Simply put, it was the culmination of this team’s journey, their quest for basketball perfection and immortality. It was team basketball in its truest sense on both ends of the court. To try and parse it down into simpler parts would…

San Antonio 111, Miami 92 Spurs lead series 2-1 The Spurs’ big win in Miami in Game 3 of the Finals was sparked by the “other 3″ and seemingly everybody but the Big 3. Which means it was entirely about the Big 3. At the top of their long list of accomplishments is a note that might not get mentioned too often: perhaps the greatest feat the Big 3 (plus…

Editor’s Note: The opinions expressed are those of the author, and not the SpursDynasty.com staff. The San Antonio Spurs have been so good for so long that many people — and no doubt most readers of this site — are completely convinced that the Spurs have in fact created a Dynasty. But despite their incredible history of success over the past 15 years, to truly merit the title of Dynasty,…

Miami 98, San Antonio 96 Series tied 1-1 Well that was dispiriting. I truly believed San Antonio’s best shot at winning this series was 4-1, taking the first 2 at home, splitting in Miami, and then closing out in Game 5. Not wanting to be a jinx, I said nothing. But that is how I saw it going. Perhaps it was the wishful thinking of a fan, believing this Spurs…

Miami 95, San Antonio 110 Spurs lead series 1-0 I think I’m professionally obligated to title this post with some sort of word play about the heat (get it, the Heat?) and the temperature. My three favorites were: “Meltdown”; “Burning Man”; and, “Men On Fire”. I’ll let you decide. Before we get to the game, a word about LeBron and the cramping. I confess: I like LeBron. I like the…

Yesterday’s series preview was mostly emotional, but let’s dig into some of the basketball, shall we? Not only is this a rematch, both teams bring back essentially the same rosters and cores of last year’s series. With all apologies to all parties, I don’t think Neal, Belinelli, and Miller are going to swing this series one way or another. Which sets an odd tone for the series, because so many of…
