So far in this year’s NBA Finals, there have been some things that I have noticed. Here are the top 5 things that have caught my eye so far in this up and down NBA Finals.
1.Tony Parker may be one of the greatest point guards of all time – I don’t know if y’all have noticed, but this man is really good! With the way how he is getting in the paint on Miami, I’m not sure if he can be stopped. Since he has improved his jump shot, I don’t think there is any other way you can guard him. You can only contain him
2. The Big 3?, more like the Big 1– Lebron has pretty much had to carry the load for the Heat this entire playoffs. Fortunately, Wade showed up in Game 4. But can he maintain the consistency? I’m not sure. Don’t be surprised if the Big 3 is broken up in the offseason. Pat Riley is smart enough to know that this team ,with the way how it is assembled, is not good enough to win a lot of championships.
3. The Spurs are actually fun to watch– No they’re not “Lob City”, and you won’t even catch them on a Sportscenter highlight. But I think the inventor of basketball, Dr.James Naismith, intended his game to be played the way how the Spurs play it. The efficiency of the offense, the great passing, the limited turnovers, and even the always highly anticipated Coach Popovich in-game interview is always entertaining. This is hard for me to say(being a Mavs fans), but this team can play the game of basketball, and they do it in a entertaining way.
4.Tracy McGrady could get his first ring- If anybody remembers, Tracy McGrady used to be one of the more dominant scorers the league has ever seen. With him being a benchwarmer now, I find it kind of sad and comical at the same time. I see everybody on Twitter cracking the “T-Mac is in the game” jokes(which are funny), but it’s pretty ironic that he finally got out of the first round being a bench warmer of a championship contending team.
5- Popovich can be pure entertainment- I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that finds these in-game interviews for Coach Popovich entertaining. You never know what he’s going to say. He could give you some great insight, he could be real short or he could say something arrogant. I feel for these reporters, but the NBA knows,especially with Coach Popovich, that these interviews provide pure entertainment for the audience in a highly intense game.
