I've never heard so much complaining about the refs in my life (spurs fans). This is one of the worst flopping teams i've seen in the playoffs (spurs). Get over it, your team got it handed to them by a superior team.

I really dont understand all the hate for LeBron. Anyway, pencil in OKC for a championship. Way too much depth, stardom from the Thunder.

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.

That freakin beard reminds me of Brian Wilson and the SF Giants, kicking the Phillies a$$ two years ago.

Anyone but the Heat for me as well.

Reminder to limit personal attacks.

TVSG, that was not even close to a historic collapse. Stop with that.

I think ultimately they will drop one each against OKC and Miami and go 16-2 but that will still place San Antonio amongst the goat's.

They couldn't beat the 80's Lakers, Celtics, late 80's Pistons, 90's Bulls, or the early 2K's Lakers.

2001 and 2002 I will say were strong teams.

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.
Congrats to the Thunder! Even though I'm not a Miami Heat fan I'm hoping that they are able to beat the Celtics because I think a "Thunder vs. Heat" Finals would be a lot more entertaining than a "Thunder vs. Celtics" Finals.
