Lost in all of the drama of headbands and truly rotten fans in one of the greatest NBA Finals games in recent history are some of the massively clutch shots knocked down over the final periods of Game 6.
History will remember Ray Allen‘s three, but up until that point, Tony Parker‘s step-back three in LeBron’s face to tie the game up with less than 1:30 to play was about to stand as “The Shot.” He followed that bucket up with a steal on the other end and then a short jumper to out his guys up by two.

In typical Leonard fashion, he never even changed his facial expression after lighting up Miller. He’s a proud undergrad at the Tim Duncan School of Behaving Like an Android.

With the Miami Heat trailing the San Antonio Spurs 3-2 after five games in the 2013 NBA Finals, one player returns to South Beach with all the pressure squarely on his shoulders: LeBron James.
King James is widely considered — and you’d be a fool to disagree — to be the best basketball player on the planet. His combination of athleticism, strength, height, speed and basketball IQ has never seen before. Read More »
Before last night’s Game 5 in San Antonio, there was talk that Manu Ginobili‘s body had broken down and that he might be considering retirement at the end of this series. Ginobili will be turning 36 later this summer and had one of the worst seasons of his career this year. But he gave us 34 reasons (24 points, 10 assists) last night for why we need to shut up.
