It may seem as if the San Antonio Spurs are playing for an NBA title every year. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker know only too well how very long it's been since their last chance. Now they're back in the Finals with their first chance at a championship since 2007, a really long time for a Spurs team that knows a thing or two - or three - about hoisting trophies. ''Honestly, it feels like it's been forever since we've been to this point,'' Duncan said Monday night after the Spurs advanced with a 93-86 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. ''We've been on the verge of kind of getting here. We still feel like we were in contention, but we can't get over that hump. To get over that hump and get back in the Finals, it's an amazing feeling, honestly.'' Parker scored 37 points to lead the Spurs, who finished off their second sweep this postseason for their fifth Western Conference title. The Spurs were just two wins away from a trip to t...

Jalen Rose Declares Tony Parker is Best Player in the Entire NBA Behind LeBron and Kevin Durant

Spurs magnifique in sweep to Finals

The last time the San Antonio Spurs were in the NBA Finals, Tony Parker was not quite a star and Tim Duncan was not quite over the hill (I think).
