    I know ST'ers didn't like Neal at the time. I was actually a bit of a fan. But I watch him for a couple minutes and wonder what the f*** he's doing out there in the first quarter of a finals clinching game.

    Or Jim for missing a point blank layup in g7
    Or poop for leaving his best rebounder on the bench at the end of game 6

    2014 wouldn't be the best redemption story in all of sports without the 'pain.'

    Poop gets called out for that all the time tbh. Duncan has a pass considering he was a beast in G6 and was already a 4 time champ

    It actually doesn't hurt anymore! When I look back on it, I think:

    Miami barely scraped by with a lucky victory in '13.
    Spurs waxed their asses by a historic margin of victory in '14.
    Therefore, it's a net positive for the Spurs. We were the better team over a 2-year span.

    As far as I'm concerned, '13 was just a prelude to the epic story of the rightful champions resuming their place on the throne.

    THIS, exactly what I was thinking

    Holy --the Ray Allen memory haunts me but god damn if Manu didn't get fouled and could have won it at the line with 1.9 remaining in OT. No wonder Manu shoved the same off and yammed on Bosh the next year.

    It was the referee's who killed the Spurs 2013 Game 6 finals. Back to back no call on Manu drive and Green 3pt attemp. Refs swallowed the whistle to extend the finals.

    Troof....just as bad is the karate chop Dirk admittedly gave Tim in '06 at the end of regulation. Manu gets called for a 'touch' foul and that gets overlooked.

    Dirk went with the percentages on that one... he knew that 99% of the time the refs aren't going to call that so you might as well get a good one in to prevent the win.

    I don't care what anyone says. This game still pisses me off.

    I will never experience a bigger sports disappointment in the rest of my life.

    If it weren't for 2014, I may be at the bottom of a cliff somewhere.

    No one expected the Spurs to win in '13. If they had, it would have been viewed as a major upset.

    By '14, a lot of people felt like the Spurs let one get away...and so no one was surprised when they won the second time around (though no one expected the beatdown)

    If we had lost in 2014, too, all I would’ve needed was a chair and a rope tbqh.

    Yeah '14 sure cured a lot of pains. It really was the 'greatest redemption story' in all of sports. At least I can't think of anything that matches it. I was sitting behind our basket in game 5 2014 and I'm still feel like it was something surreal.

    2004 Red Sox is better IMO

    Other memorable in other sports that fall short
    - John Elway upsetting double digit favorite Favre after 0-3 Super Bowl record

    - Bayern in 2001 and 2013

    - Virginia Bball wins le after first ever #16 vs #1 upset

    -Crosby 1st le was a rematch of the previous Cup Final but this time they won in 7 games

    NBA tends to have alot of rematches. That whole ERA of 80s-early 90s was teams climbing the ladder and then being conquered themselves. Hockey is the same way - sustained dominance. In NFL the losing team especially in Super Bowls, almost always declines

    no, a dumbass coach putting a 60% freethrow shooter in the game to clinch it at the line cost us. Would you blame Dennis Rodman for losing the game at the line if Phil Jackson called a timeout and put him in to clinch the game at the line? Well, that's what exactly happened. Popovich called a timeout, put a HORRIBLE free throw shooter in the game(and Kawhi was bad that whole playoffs at the line) and then Takes Duncan out a 2nd time on defense and the rest is history. It's like he was intentionally throwing the game. I've never seen a game so badly coached by a hall of fame coach in my entire life.

    that's not true. As bad as it pains me to say this, we got the benefit of more whistles than the Heat that series. It's like the league didn't want the Heat to win it. But Popovich's ty coaching ed us over. I saw a 4-1 series win for us that year. I swear I did. I just wan't understanding why these games were so goddamn close. Then in 2014, I said we were gonna sweep them. After Parker and Duncan missed 4 freethrows in game 2, everyone here panicked like they always do. I was the ONLY ONE ON THIS ENTIRE SITE(and you can do a search) that guaranteed a game 3 victory. I said, "we're gonna win game 3 and the rest of the series. NO need to worry".
