With the NBA Finals starting up in less then 24 hours, the intensity is starting to mount and the Heat and Spurs are starting to narrow their focus on the sole goal of winning a title. For the Miami Heat, it would be their third title in as many years and for the Spurs it would be complete vengeance for what happened to them last year.
But with the Finals comes plenty of trash talk and that’s where the fans like to step in and get the job done. Spurs fans got off to an early start it seems as someone has posted a billboard that trolls the Miami Heat for buying their way into the NBA Finals where as the Spurs built a machine that works just as effectively.

Not to be a total downer here for Spurs fans, but the billboard is only cute and nothing more. The Spurs may have built a legacy — and no one is disrespecting that — but it didn’t hold water with what the Heat built and yes, they built it.
We saw in 2010 how the Heat limped through the Finals as a team that didn’t know how to play together but they grew and built off that to form a two-time championship squad. They may have bought the pieces, but the Heat made everything work so let’s not go tossing stones when it’s not warranted.
