San Antonio Spurs leaves the Star’s in the Sky’s

By CityFella

The San Antonio Spars beat the Miami Heat after five games.    The win was decisive, early in the first quarter the Miami lead by 16 points.   It  clear by the third quarter the Spurs were fully in control , in the end they took it  104 to 87.

I missed game  one of the finals in San Antonio, when  Air Conditioning  malfunctions.  One member of the Heat, couldn’t take the Heat and with all the ice the Arena could find couldn’t cool Lebron James.

I had an epiphany by game three after watching both benches and how the teams reacted to each other.    With  Miami. there is a clear hierarchy with Labron being the King. following Lebron was Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh and Ray Allen,  with others playing a secondary role.

On the other side of the floor there was more of a comradery a brotherhood.  Yes there are stars….Duncan, Parker, Ginobili  who seem to interact with the rest of the team.

I am reminded of the 2003-04 Sacramento Kings, Chris Webber, Vlade Divac, and Peja Stojakovic.   I couldn’t name three player from the 2013 Kings and I went to over a dozen games.  But I still remember Chris Christie, Brad Miller and Bobby Jackson.    Like the Spurs, it seemed to be more about the team and less about points.

Team development seems more important than developing stars with the Spurs.   Players like Patty Mills, Kawhi Leonard, and Damion James, might have been ignored on other teams.

With their victory over the Miami Heat, the season is over.

Congratulations to the San Antonio Spurs

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
