Well congrats to the Spurs to another NBA Championship. Four titles in nine years that’s amazing. I guess the big question for them is if they can win it back to back? I am happy to see Tony Parker as the MVP. He deserves it. Robert Horry now has seven championships. I always like the guy and it seems he is on the right team at the right time. Oh by the way, the Cleveland Cavs may have been swept by the Spurs but they are one player away from being able to compete next year. Hopefully they will get one or two additional role players to help out Lebron James. Cleveland must find someone to hit those clutch 3 pointers. I guess the reason I am happy the Spurs won was because they won as a team. In order for any team to beat the Spurs they need to shut down Duncan, Parker, and Giniolbi. Usually if one of those players is having a bad night then a role player will come in and does what they need to win.
Notice the leadership in Duncan. He is constantly building up his teammates. This characteristic is also seen in Lebron James. As a Lakers fan, I believe the biggest downfall to the Lakers is Kobe Bryant. He lacks this leadership quality. He never builds up his teammates and when then lose; he does not take responsibility for the loss. Kobe Bryant is a great scorer and a great individual player but he does not have the leadership quality to take his team to the NBA Finals. The only reason he has three championships is because of Shaq.
For any team to win the NBA Championship learn to play like a team. Learn from the Spurs, a team in which each player has put their egos aside, contribute to work together to fulfill the role each has been given, and thus in nine years have become a NBA dynasty.
