Go Spurs Go!

June 20, 2014 - Kim Collette
NBA Basketball is typically not something I totally invest my time in. However, as a Cleveland sports fan, I still take great pleasure it rooting against LeBron James. So, when the James led Miami Heat made it to this years NBA Finals, I was obviously going to root for whoever they were playing. This year my "team" was the San Antonio Spurs. While I enjoy seeing LeBron NOT hoist another trophy, this years games actually made me kinda enjoy watching the NBA. The Spurs played total TEAM basketball. The were selfless. They were patient. They looked for the extra pass if it led to a better shot. In fact, if I am not mistaken, in one of the games each player on the roster scored. You don't see that kind of team basketball at any level any more. The NBA pushed to make the game global and succeed. They succeeded in creating one of the best "TEAMS" I have watched play. The Spurs have a core of 8 international players who play the game the right way. With a few up and coming US players like Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green, along with the international mix, the Spurs have the right recipe for TEAM basketball. My hope is that more teams and players will follow suit. To me, that type of TEAM basketball is fun to watch. And maybe the NBA would again have me as a fan.

Until next time!
