The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs are meeting once again in the NBA Finals and the series is already shaping up to be the best series of the postseason so far. That’s a huge relief to fans watching at home, as the Pacers-Heat series was a massive letdown and was more defined by the childish antics of Lance Stephenson than they were by the actual basketball played.
With the San Antonio Spurs, none of that will be a problem as the two teams left standing in the NBA are two of the most professional teams out there and that’s what is going to make this series as special — if not more special — as it was in 2013.
Regardless of the outcome, at the end of the day we want to see high quality basketball played as that is what makes winning so much better. The series against the Bobcats in the first round was cute and semi-encouraging from the standpoint that maybe Charlotte won’t be doomed to suck forever, but it was hardly a thrilling series. Neither was the Nets series and outside of Lance Stephenson’s antics, the Pacers series was considerably underwhelming.
The Spurs bring a different style of basketball to the table though and that’s what is going to make this series so much fun.
It may turn out that the heat lose this series, but if they do the least we can expect is a solid six or seven game series and one that is free of lame and childish antics. You won’t see Tim Duncan or Manu Ginobili blowing in anyone’s ear, you’ll see them strategizing on the fly to create plays and points and that’s the type of opponent the Heat have been waiting for since tip-off of this season back in October.
