Spurs gunna be 1 win away
Spurs gunna be 1 win away
Spurs get two chances to seal it. I think they do it in game 6.
Watching Danny Green reminds me of catching fire in the old NBA Jam games lol. He is not missing.
I'd like to see a close game again. Besides game 1, they've all been decided early.
I said this series would go 7 and I still think it will. Seems that when either team had to win a game, they did. The Heat will find a way in game 6. It's the NBA way.
And game 7 will just be whoever wants it the most.
I can't remember a team talking as much as the Heat do. Its kinda refreshing the way the Spurs go about their business. After every loss you hear Wade or James say "we have to be more aggressive" or "we have to play harder." Its the NBA Finals, don't you think you should bring your A game every game?
Also it sounds like KG and Doc to L.A. is on the verge of going down.
Not surprised the Heat lost last night. Not that the Heat didn't give it their all but I'm guessing that they figured they had those 2 home games in their back pocket and if they lost game 5 they would come home and win games 6 and 7. Not that they will do that for sure but I will wager they will play with more urgency in game 6 and win that one. As for game 7, who knows?
Also, what do you think of the 2-3-2 format for the finals? I grew up with the 2-2-1-1-1 format where the team with homecourt advantage had game 5 at home but watching those Philly/Boston/LA series where they played a game on the east coast then a game on the west coast then a game bask on the east coast I always wondered why they didn't do it 2-3-2 like the World Series.
Also, I don't think the traveling is an issue anymore in any of these series, because they regularly take a couple days off between games now. I'm not a fan of that either. A single series shouldn't take more than two weeks to complete.
June 7, 1983
The New Jersey Nets signed Stan Albeck (coach) as a veteran free agent and sent Fred Roberts and a 1983 2nd round draft pick (Kevin Williams) to the San Antonio Spurs as compensation.
Time to ditch to 2-3-2 Finals Format.
Obviously the situation is vastly different than it was in 1984. Team charters make travel much easier. The NBA is in position to work with ABC on the television schedule.
Right now it seems the NBA uses the 2-3-2 system only because that’s the way it has been done for 29 years.
There were very good reasons to change the system after the 1984 Finals, although, looking back, that certainly ranks as one of the greatest championship series in NBA history.
But the reasons no longer exist. It’s time to go back to the past. It will make the future much better.
I can't believe they have been doing 2-3-2 for 29 years. Doesn't seem that long ago.
OK, for those who like the 2-2-1-1-1 format, would you like to see the World Series change to that format?
