Spurs a royal pain for King James, Cavaliers
Within the next four or five games, the San Antonio Spurs will hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy and claim their fourth NBA title since 1998.
But no matter how many games it takes, the Spurs WILL win this series.
Here’s why: while Cleveland has arguably the NBA’s best player, the Spurs have undoubtedly the league’s best team. And even LeBron James can’t overcome that one-on-five thing.
When you think of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who instantly comes to mind?
See, I told you.
But when you think of the Spurs, Tim Duncan isn’t the only player occupying your thoughts.
Tony Parker’s there.
So is Manu Ginobili.
And Bruce Bowen.
LeBron and the Cavaliers will undoubtedly make adjustments. But James, even with his new sidekick, Daniel Gibson, is no match for the Spurs.
The Cavaliers simply don’t have the offensive (or defensive) firepower to overcome the Spurs on the NBA’s biggest stage.
LeBron will dazzle fans and leave them with lasting memories. But the Spurs will leave with something much more important.
