    Mr 8 turnovers came back with a vengeance, dunked all over Bosh, and orchestrated one of the more lopsided wins in NBA Finals history, tbh... this while Parker couldn't even score until the 4th quarter being guarded by Mario Chalmers.

    The contrast of the guy that will take you to the finish line and the guy who won't is pretty clear. Again, no disrespect to Tony...

    I know we won in 2014 but losing 2013 really ticked me off since Duncan is my favorite Spur. Ginobili cost Duncan a huge chunk of his all time legacy. Duncan would’ve won Finals MVP that year putting him at 4 and I believe second all
    time in that regard. He also would’ve been 6 for 6 something that only JordaN has done and would have one more than Kobe. Tim won that 5th ring a year later, but he didn’t get the Finals MVP and he now has a stain on his Finals record all thanks to Ginobili.

    Also Parker was being guarded by Lebron not Chalmers.

    Arguing over Manu and TP brings back memories of good times.

    I thought that was Kawhi who missed the FT

    Missing shots happens; you let it go and alea jacta est

    But Pop had control over his rotation; leaving your defensive anchor, best rebounder and leader was re ed - no excuse

    Manure was the one who put Kawhi in that position by missing his free throw first. You are right though it is Pop’s fault with his rotation. He never should’ve played a non clutch 8 turnover shooting guard in Manure when he had a better option in T-Mac on the bench. That’s the only way you can blame Pop bc if Manure makes his free throw it doesn’t matter about a damn rebound.

    2013 isn't on Manu. It's on Pop. Idiot forgot the team still needs to rebound the ball.

    I will admit that Manu had a large role in why we lost in 2013, but let's also point out nephew choking free throws to ice the championship, Pop benching TD when we needed a rebound, and that maybe '14 doesn't happen if '13 doesn't happen.

    I'm just glad Mand and TD could overcome such a ty situation and win it the next year. I should also mention '14 was the last good year for Pop, IMO

    tp's advice: "when you're on the bench and your team is making a comeback without you, just pretend like it doesn't bother you. you'll get used to it. i dealt with it a lot. regular seasons, POs, even the finals."

    2014 was a redemption story unlike many in sports. Talk about a script no one would believe. It will be a movie before it's all over. 2014 was just off the chart and yes you could argue '14 doesn't happen without '13.

    I thought the refs not letting the Spurs rebound the ^%$ing ball after the Ray Allen 3 really was the death knell, but we had OT and another game to pull it out.

    Part of me is actually okayish with 13 because 14 happened, it was so beautiful for a variety of reasons

    Tony was amazing at scoring while in the paint among the bigs. Somehow he'd find a way to spin from coverage or find a window to put up the shot. Not just speed but clever footwork as well. IMO he never got as many foul calls as he deserved.

    I'm with you! I was there June 15, 2014 and it felt surreal to see that going down. It's almost like you need '13 for the 'movie' to be triumphant. Like Rocky has to get his ass kicked a few times to make winning mean anything!

    Tonight I'll be watching Game 5 in '05. The hits keep coming!

    Lesson 1: Find the burger joint

    Lesson 2: Kawhi.. There's a reason I never passed to him.

    Lesson 3: I was the real MVP of the 2014 championship game.

    Spurs never care about such things. He was 6’2” when drafted at age 19, but by the 2003 Finals was the same height, 6’4”, as JKidd.

    Yeah I mean it hurts because we were so close, and it probably hurt some guys legacy too (Idc bout it honestly, and I think they don't either, but casual fans would always bring it up), but the comeback was just so sweet, with such a likeable group of guys, Timmy having another great season, Manu bouncing back after many people Spurs fans included thought he was finished, so many iconic moments and plays throughout the whole run and the chance the guys got to reedem themselves against the same team (and not only they did it, they destroyed em)
    You just can't make this up, it was special

    Parker did just fine in 2008-2012, the era where we could have easily won another 1 or 2 rings, if we didn't cheap out on getting a long SF and strike out with Jefferson

    IMO, Parker was at the peak of his powers in 2012-2013.

    I think part of the 2009-2011 "doldrums" (though still rather successful by the standards of almost any other franchise) was due to Duncan and Manu starting to decline and Parker not hitting his peak yet. That and Jefferson of course.
