There once was a time when Lebron James mentioned how he wanted "revenge" in regards to playing against the Spurs . The media took big gulps of that particular beverage and savored every drop . In game #1 when the Spurs had a victory against the Miami Heat there was a little moment of silence, then a begrunged acknowledgement that the "old guys" could still teach Lebron & company a few things about basketball .
Game #2 showed some flaws in being over confident and not realizing who the Spurs were playing against . Again the media quickly once again jumped back on the wagon happily called "told you so, they are old" .
Game #3 left no doubt why the Spurs are best known for their defense. And 3-point shooting ability. A NBA playoff record was set for the most three pointers completed in a playoff game. Sixteen all by the Spurs . Very doubtful that will ever occur again this series by either team . The Miami Heat sufferred their worse loss in franchise history .....losing by thirty pints. Mr. "Revenge" was practically non existant on the court during the game .
The Heat got crushed Tuesday night. And so did the media. Now, reluctant praise for the Spurs rises to the top from the national media...again. And Thursday's game #4 will perhaps be a battle royal as Lebron & company once again face the Spurs at the AT&T Center .
The bottom line....the Spurs have proven to a lot of critics both locally and nationwide that they have some "unfinished business" that needs their attention.
A win tomorrow night would help bring that "unfinished business" one step closer to completion.
A potential win Sunday puts another ring on the hand of Tim Duncan. And perhaps the close to one of the best ensembles that has ever been witnessed by San Antonio Spurs fans.
