First off, I have been rooting for San Antonio Spurs ever since I can remember. I didn't even bother watching the 2012 Finals after their demise against Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference. After they were able to dominate the Western Conference this year, I thought that we are in for a spectacular series especially if it's against the defending champions, Miami Heat.
It was a long series. Long enough that it reached the 7th game. The most heart-stopping game for me and maybe for most of the people out there would be game 6. I mean, the Spurs are only seconds away from the championship title and yet unexpected turn-of-events happened. Then a lot of "what-ifs" were formulated:
- What if Kawhi Leonard didn't miss one of his free throws?
- What if Ray Allen wasn't able to bank that three-pointer?
Everything that happened disheartened me, no doubt. But I don't blame their loss to the members' shortcomings. It's just that the opposing team were able to out play the Spurs. I just hope Tim Duncan <3 will be able to get over his frustration regarding his missed layup shot on game 7. Watching how he slapped the floor after the miss made me felt his frustration too. My hopes are still up for next year! Go SPURS Go!!!
Here's a clip where Duncan let out his frustrations by slapping the floor:
