This is the kind of situation that determines real champions! The Spurs and the Heat are the real deals right now, unquestionably the two most powerful teams in the NBA and in a class by themselves. It would be a monumental moment in history if Miami comes back from this seemingly huge deficit. But I don't think they can do it. Then again, anything can happen, and they do have Lebron James, arguably one of the best that ever played the game.

So my heart is with the Heat, but my head says, "Don't think so. Ain't going to happen!"

"Why not us" you ask Lebron. I'll tell you why! The Spurs deserve to win the title. This is a team that was built from the ground up with a bunch of good guys that has a coach that teaches them to play the right way. The Heat on the other hand were put together with superstars that worked out a deal amongst themselves to join together and transform a team into a championship contender. They don't need a coach like conventional teams because they have better talent than anyone else. What's wrong with that some might ask? To me it is another advantage that big market teams have when they can exceed the payroll limits of the NBA and bring together free agents that want the bright lights and the notoriety they get playing in these markets. Yeah it's not illegal or even unethical, but it still stinks for small market teams like the Jazz that will not be able to manufacture a team this way. I say, go Spurs, kick their fannies and win one for the small market teams.

I'm rooting for the Spurs to win...simply because i love how they play the game...the jazz used to be like that...a lot of passing...a lot of rotations...a lot of off the ball screens...that's what basketball should all be about...not about highlight reel dunks...from the clippers....its about precision passing and team play...Last year...honestly its the spurs championship to lose...i always thought that the Spurs played great...and they should have won game 6...this year...i hope they close out...Lebron is athletically gifted...he is a big guy...with a lot of speed...but i dont think he would be in the top 5 greatest ever...usually the guys that are in contention with the title of the greatest ever...are the guys who stuck with their team...elevated their game and the game of his teammates...to take the championship...not to call your friends and say...look we need to team up...sports should be about competition...

Why not us? Because you the greatest player in the history of basketball quits when the going gets tough.
