Spurs with the biggest collapse in their team history.


2004 and 2011 have been erased.

How much longer do the Spurs have?
There is some young blood there. But that window is likely closed for this current Spurs team.

As a fan of neither team (somewhat anti-Spurs actually), I'll say that this was a terribly reffed game. Those two calls against Ginobili were major. And KD literally goes to the line every time he touches the ball. Plus, Joe Crawford has no business reffing any game Tim Duncan's playing in.

Wow.

I can't believe that Stephen Jackson technical. What would the 90's players being doing under todays rules? They'd all be ejected. The 90's knicks, lol, would be led away in handcuffs.

Say what you will about the refs, okc hit some big shots. Durant and Harden with a bunch of 3's. When the game was on the line, OKC simply stepped up.

I couldn't hate the Spurs, hating them would be like hating Lassie or something. Tim Duncan seems to be a class guy and a great player.

I hope OKC wins it all so it will prove once and for all who the best player and the real MVP is, Kevin Durant.

Default Spurs go down; surprised

I was rooting for the Spurs. I like Duncan and Parker, and always enjoyed watching the precision in which that team operated. Even when the Suns were at the top of their game those years with Nash, Amare, Raja Bell, Diaw, and so forth, they couldn't beat the Spurs. Sorry they lost, and I thought they had the pedigree to prevail.

So, the Thunder is the best in the WC. We have to put up with unabomber-looking Harden, and watch Westbrook launch up more shots than anyone else in the building. I hope they face Boston.

I don't care who wins, as long as it's not a team with LeBron on it.

Go Thunder! WC CHAMPIONS!!!!

I will never ever understand why NBA teams go for the knockout punch in the 1st qtr when there is so much time left in the game. I sat there and watched the spurs and could not believe they were using up so much energy so earlier on and knew it was a strong possibility they would have nothing left to finish off the game. The NBA game is not a sprit, it's a marathon and you can't try and build huge leads in the 1st qtr.


It was a shame to see the Spurs franchise end this way but they had a great decade and 4 titles and that's still a great accomplishment. Sad to see the spurs window close this way and now will we have to look at OKC for the next 4 or 5 years.
