In a few hours, the San Antonio Spurs will become NBA Champs, as the winner of tonight’s fifth Finals’ game is a foregone conclusion. Sure, LeBron is LeBron, but is Dwyane really Dwyane and is Bosh still the old Bosh? And what about those other starters? Mario Chalmers has never been a consistent player but has been the weakest link on the starting five. However, that distinction now goes to Rashard Lewis, who was rescued from the trash heap, given a starter’s spot, had a couple of decent games, and now can be counted on to take up space, and little more.
While Miami doesn’t even have five quality starters, and their bench is nothing after Allen and Anderson, the Spurs go at least nine deep, and in Manu Ginobili have a legitimate
|star sixth starter coming off the bench. The Heat can "count" on not much more than a couple of other guys apparently on their last legs in Udonis Haslem and Shane Battier, and a couple of never were's and never-will-be's, in Norris Cole and Toney Douglass. James Jones did have the game of his life for three minutes on Thursday, but don't count on a repeat anytime soon.|
The only matters left to be decided tonight are
Shop Miami Heat
Shop San Antonio Spurs
Enjoy tonight’s game, it could be the last game together for players, and coaches, in both San Antonio and Miami.
