Spurs Win

In one of the most anti-climactic moments of the season the Spurs defeated the Cavs in Game 4 of the NBA to complete the sweep and gain yet another NBA Championship. Ho Hum. Outside of the Lebron going bonkos against Detroit, the NBA playoffs stunk after the Spurs-Suns series. Seemingly ever year the best matchup of the playoffs occurs on the Western Conference undercard. I guess it's just the luck of the draw sometimes, but certainly not good for a league renegotiating it's TV deal.

If you want analysis:

-If this were soccer Manu would've garnered multiple red and yellow cards for flopping all over the place. Even European hockey players get away with less.

-Parker and Duncan are really really good.

-How does a team with Jacque Vaughn in the rotation win a NBA Championship? NJ, Atl, Utah, and Orlando have to be kicking themselves for letting this winner go. Vaughn now has more titles than Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, and Barkley combined.

-Lebron needs a little help on the offensive end of things. Glad the Big Zzzzz brought out the big guns this series and I don't think Larry Hughes has been the second option Danny Ferry thought he would be.

-All in all this was one of the worst, if not the worst NBA finals I can remember. At least the Knicks took a game off San Antonio back in 1999 to avoid complete embarrassment. Off topic- I still think Van Gundy is a moron for putting Larry Johnson on Duncan all series instead of Marcus Camby. Not that the Knicks would've won the series, but at least Duncan wouldn't have been able to score unabated.

Tony Parker was lights out.

Mookie, you have to be happy with this result. Mark my words, this finals appearance for the King will be the impetus for his departure to the Knickerbockers in 2-3 years. Book it.
