The San Antonio Spurs share one focus. The team has a plan
and everyone is executing and following that plan. I see that they are on one
page with how much they are willing to sacrifice. And they are willing to
sacrifice at all costs, which was perfectly exhibited in Game 4.
When the game was pretty much decided and San Antonio went
to their bench, the players came in running the same offense, putting in the
same effort on defense, moving the ball, moving their bodies...putting in the
same amount of effort as the starters were, which signifies that they are all
bought into the team concept. No matter the name on the jersey, everybody was
fulfilling their own responsibilities.
This team has one voice. All egos have been left in the locker
room. It doesn't matter who's on the court, if this was an All-Star Game or the
Olympics, what their past pedigree has been...all egos have apparently been
checked in the locker room. When they step on that court, it's one team with
It's ultimately about winning at all costs. That means
accountability. They are accountable to one another and self-police themselves
out there. They don't even need Coach Popovich to hold them accountable to a
certain standard because they are policing themselves.
It's a wonderful thing to see as a player, a fan, and as
somebody who's looking at the next NBA Champions. I see nothing but the 2014
NBA Championship going to the San Antonio Spurs.
Let the games begin. Bring on the parade. San Antonio in
