NBA Finals: The Heart of a Champion?

images/finalspin.jpgThe Spurs suffered a monumental collapse in Game 6 of the NBA Finals; do they still have the heart to rebound and snatch the NBA Title in Game 7?

images/finalspin.jpgThe San Antonio Spurs were about 30 seconds away from their NBA championship and allowed the Miami Heat to steal the game from them. Now they have put themselves in a pressured position of playing a Game 7 on the road. No team in the last 30 years has won a seven game series in the NBA Finals on the road—can the Spurs do it tonight?

This championship may be the end of the road for this group of players; Tim Duncan is 37 years of age. He is the heart of the entire Spurs squad, although he isn’t their best player anymore. Manu Ginobili is 35 years of age, an old 35 at that, and the lights are dimming on his career as well. This game can very well be their last chance at greatness, their last chance at holding that trophy.            

Tony Parker has a lot riding on tonight’s game as well. He is the star of this team now and it is up to him to deliver when the team needs him most. Part of being a star is uplifting others and carrying teammates across the finish line. Parker could cement himself as the best point guard in the league with a great performance tonight.            

Also Parker has to remember that these opportunities don’t come often and even though he is younger than his two counterparts (in the Big Three) he may never see a NBA Finals again in his career. This too could be the end of the road for him from a championship standpoint.            

The Spurs’ Big Three have been playing together for a decade and they have monumental experience in tough games. They need to use that experience along with a strong level of desperation and fight. The Spurs need their stars to be locked on the offensive end and active on defense.            

The Spurs have the tools, talent, and the experience to rebound from such a disheartening loss, but can they impose their will on a surging Miami Heat team? Which squad will display more heart, which squad will display… the heart of a champion?
