    I love the fact that Tim Duncan, one of the greatest class acts not just in sports but anywhere, has 5 rings, while countless chest-thumping NBA blowhards have none.

    The Spurs did it with ruthless efficiency. We'll never see a better display of team basketball. Go Spurs!

    The Heat weren't hungry or something. Now that the NHL and NBA finals are finished, I am able to focus on the World Cup.

    Stunningly ego-less, humble, cooperative, altruistic...it was a textbook display of how The Whole Is Greater Than The Sum Of Its Parts. Really gratifying to see the Spurs win that way.

    I haven't watched the craptacular spectacle of what is the new NBA lite since they stopped playing man to man defense. Might as well be AND-1. I enjoyed watching women's collegiate volleyball all winter and spring. It's not trying to be "sports entertainment"!

    As a Miami fan, I wouldn't say they lost for lack of effort. Give credit to the Spurs, they played amazing ball those last three games. Miami's biggest problems were that Wade wore down after looking like an All-Star in the first three series, and Bosh turned passive. The role players are also, generally, too old and slow (though Ray Allen still kicks ass). They need to inject some youth into the roster.

    Leonard averaged 17.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks in the series, shooting 61.2 percent from the field and 57.9 percent from behind the 3-point line. In the last three games, all Spurs wins, he scored 71 points on 24-for-35 shooting while serving as the primary defender on LeBron James

    Even if you are not a Spurs fan, you have to admit they are really decent guys and Greg Poppovich is a fantastic coach.

    Let's hear it for Aaron Baynes, WSU Cougar who won a ring with the Spurs! A genuinely nice guy who played 1:53 in the game and scored 2 points at the foul line.

    I stopped watching the NBA years ago, disgruntled Sonics fan here, but I watched the postgame highlights of game five. The commentators were talking about how solid of a player Kawhi Leonard is and how he isn't a trash talking, show boating, highlight making plays type player. Then another guy mentioned how he didn't think Leonard, for those reasons, would make it as a star in the NBA. If that is true, that is very disappointing.

    Hang in there Kawhi.....I'll support you.

    Of course Ray Allen still kicks ass... he got game!

    I heard he was wearing a Jesus Shuttleworth jersey to some games since they are planning He Got Game two, I could be wrong but I thought I read this in a real paper, not a hoax paper.

    Oh, he'll be an NBA star. But like Tim Duncan, he'll get passed over for a lot of endorsements in favor of the showboaters. And like Duncan, I'm sure he won't care.
