That NBA Lottery Pick:
One of the lingering questions from game six of the 2013 NBA Finals was the Spurs decision to not foul Ray Allen on his game-tying three point attempt before the end of regulation.
As you might figure, a reporter asked Gregg Popovich that question and Pop didn’t disappoint with a very “Pop-Like” answer:
Never Change, Gregg Popovich!
BEST OF MAXIM
Thank you, Gregg Popovich. Thank you for what has been a great NBA Finals, where you and Erik Spoelstra have coached an incredible series. Thank you also for Game 6 on Tuesday night, when outcoached yourself with some final-minutes substitution patterns that threatened to destroy Twitter.
But, Gregg Popovich, thank you most of all for your postgame news conference.
Popovich has never...
It looked like the Spurs where going to get their rings, but Ray Allen had other ideas. Off a offensive rebound Allen hit a game tying three with 5 seconds left to force the game into overtime.

This might be one of the greatest responses to the question of “how do you get your team into a game 7″ in the history of sports. The delivery was absolutely perfect, nice work Gregg Popovich.
The Heat were on the ropes, the Spurs were moments away from bringing in title No. 5 to the franchise and the Heat needed something to turn the tide.
Enter Heat's Ray Allen.
Dwyane Wade misfired on a three to tie the game in the fourth quarter and with 7-seconds left in regulation, Allen nailed the clutch three to send the game into overtime where Miami would go on to...
The Miami Heat were down three with one last shot at tying the game. LeBron James bricked a three, but the rebound eventually found its way to Ray Allen. Allen stepped back over the three point arc and drilled perhaps the most clutch three of his career with five seconds left in the game. Game 6 is headed to OT.
In case you missed it, San Antonio Spurs shooting guard Danny Green has been lights out from behind the arc hitting a record 25 three pointers through five games; a number good enough to break the record for most three's made in a Finals series.
Breaking the record was great. Doing it in a winning effort in Game 5 even better, but what made it the best was that the old record...
He left Boston to help the Heat repeat as champs. His huge shot in
Game 6 kept that hope alive.
Did ESPN really debate this question on whether or not Gregg Popovich should sit his stars for Game 6? Seriously, they debated this?
The San Antonio Spurs lost a heartbreaker in Game 6 against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night, but they still have another chance to win an NBA title in Game 7 on Thursday night. If not for the stellar shooting of Danny Green throughout the series, LeBron James would already be living up to the [...]
What message did San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich tell his team in the locker room just after losing the NBA Finals to the Miami Heat 95-88?
“I just told them I loved them,” said Popovich.
Game 7 brought out the best two teams in the NBA and they battled for four straight quarters, back and forth, until the Heat ended up being the victor with a LeBron James...
Miami Heat fans should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.
The funniest part of the mass exodus out of the arena with 28 seconds remaining in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals was the Instagram picture showing one of the fans on the elevator in an old purple No. 34 Milwaukee Bucks jersey, where Ray Allen played once upon a time.
So that fan and numerous others chose to give up on LeBron...
LeBron James shrugged off a poor start to get 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, Ray Allen hit a 3-pointer with 5.2 seconds to play to force overtime and the Miami Heat staved off elimination with a 103-100 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night.
James missed nine of his first 12 shots, but scored 16 points in the fourth to rally the...
There’s one game remaining to determine the NBA Champions for this season. The Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs will clash in Game 7 of the NBA Finals. San Antonio was 28 seconds away from winning their fifth NBA Title when Miami made their move. LeBron James and Ray Allen stepped up and made two huge 3-pointers to force overtime before taking Game 6 in dramatic fashion. The...
