The party is over in South Beach, but not just because San Antonio got the revenge that they wanted.

San Antonio is known as being the quiet team with a bunch of old superstars that are very fundamentally strong, but not anymore. After embarrassing the Miami Heat in back-to-back road games inside of LeBron’s American Airlines Arena, San Antonio came home and won their fifth NBA Championship. The Spurs didn’t just win the series, but they throttled Miami. Their over-competitiveness, hustle, grit, and team play is what pushed them way over the top this season. San Antonio outscored Miami by 14 points per game, the largest point differential in NBA Finals history! Along the way other records were set and individual players had incredible career moments, but unfortunately the storylines haven’t been the same.

Instead of talking about how incredible San Antonio’s season has been, the storylines have been about “LeBron’s cramps”, “Why is Chalmers Missing?”, and “Will Carmelo Anthony Make it a Big Four”.

Let me address each of these headlines, along with what I believe should be the focal points to remember of the 2014 NBA Finals. Use the page numbers to navigate through
