The San Antonio Spurs can wrap up their fifth NBA title tonight if they win Game 6 at defending champion Miami.
I'm by no means an NBA expert but I can't help but think that it's going to be very difficult for Miami to take this away from the veteran Spurs.
Old pros like Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli have been waiting since 2007 and are arguably hungrier than the Heat.
Even if the Spurs "old guard" gets to a point where they're running on fumes I gotta believe that being this close will be the only elixir those guys will need to soothe achy joints or sore muscles.
I'll cast my lot with San Antonio's guile, grit and determination (plus some more great shooting from Danny Green) over the most talented player and his Heat.
By the way, if the Spurs do win this series, Green has to be the MVP. His shooting has been otherworldly. The big question, as always with non-stars, is if he can play as well on the road.
As for the aforementioned LeBron James, this is a time to prove once and for all that he's worthy of being placed in the upper echelon of the game's all-time winners.
He must take over. Period. No more platitudes about team play or getting teammates involved. Tonight he needs to serve notice from the opening tap that this is his series, his team, his league and his time.
No more flopping, crying, deferring or excuse making. If he's truly the best player in the league he will carry his team to two wins on its home floor and defend the crown.
Then he'll deserve the nickname of King.
