The NBA season is over and the news-cycle is dominated by the draft and Olympic team; but let us not forget the best “team” this season, the San Antonio Spurs, who watched the NBA Finals the right way. That’s right, unlike the Knicks, Lakers and attention starved Wizards, the pride of San Antonio watched the Finals with little fanfare.
Each teammate quietly gathered at Tim Duncan’s house or purchased a modest, mid-row seat that is not on center court. That is why these Spurs are the real champs. None of this loud LeBron look-at-me hoob-a-loo in press conferences; none of “Hollywood” Durant’s eye catching glasses; just plain, good old fashioned basketball watching. Here me now fathers of America: make your kids watch how the Spurs watch basketball. It’ll make them better watchers of basketball forever.
