A Dynasty Built By the Most Boring Team In Sport

     ImageThe 2013 NBA Finals could be summarized all with a few words: team basketball, unselfish play, and to finally, dynasty. Throughout the twists and turns of the season, the San Antonio Spurs were written off as old and that their time to compete for championships were over. The West was supposed to be taken over by the flashy teams in LA and the Thunder were the favorites to reach the NBA Finals.

            The San Antonio Spurs have done it their way since their dynasty began in the mid to late 90’s. It has always been unselfish team first basketball. The Spurs have been sticking to their philosophy and as the era officially comes to an end they have a 4-1 record in the finals.

Throughout the series against the Miami Heat, this team effort has been shown, from the head coach all the way down to the 12th man on the bench.  This era has never been about flashy players, major contracts ,or proclaiming how many rings that this small market team would win. San Antonio finds the players who play the right way and will play as a team. Being a fan of the most boring team in sports, it has been a thrill and bittersweet to see this era come to an end the way it did. The Spurs pushed and pushed and pushed as much as they possibly could but in the end it wasn’t good enough.

It has been remarkable to watch San Antonio win four championships and hold the highest amount of class any team or organization could possibly have.  It was even shown with the gratitude and class shown when congratulating the Heat on their championship tonight. I can honestly say that as much as this team did not go out on top, they went out with class.

Every good dynasty or empire eventually falls. Some wrote of the San Antonio dynasty years ago and some think that it is now finally over. With this dynasty being officially over the bright news that remains is their great young talent. The development that the spurs have builds championships. There still is light at the end of the tunnel; however, that tunnel is bright for a new regime to take over. This era has been humbling and an amazing feat to watch. Congratulations to the Miami Heat for winning but thank you San Antonio for one hell of a run and era.
