“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.”
― Shannon L. Alder
At 9pm Est tonight when the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs tip-off game seven of the 2013 NBA Finals. Everyone who is involved in tonight’s game, will see their legacy affected someway, somehow whether they like it or not. It’s just how life goes in the world of professional sports.
Unfortunately for two people in particular, LeBron James and Tim Duncan, their legacy will be affected the most as they’re the “cornerstone pieces/superstars” for not only their respective franchises, but also the NBA.
Many, including myself, who truly know the game of basketball will tell you, “In the history of the NBA Finals. Superstars dominate and win game 7s.” The spotlight will be on Bron and Duncan before, during and after tonight’s game ends.
The NBA seems to be the only pro sports league in which MULTIPLE rings are what separate the all-time gre...

The NBA has confirmed that the Spurs made an illegal substitution when Tim Duncan was allowed back into the game after Ray Allen's game-tying shot at the end of regulation.
Tim Duncan was asked if he may consider retiring following the San Antonio Spurs' disappointing Game 7 loss to the Miami Heat.
“Can’t believe you’re asking that question,” he said. “It’s been five, six years you’re saying we’re too old. I’m not going to answer that.”
Duncan was a First Team All-NBA selection and had a vintage performance in the NBA Finals...
Game 6 was over … and then, it wasn’t.
With the Miami Heat stealing victory from the jaws of defeat on Tuesday night, there will be a Game 7 in the NBA Finals. However, the fate of that game doesn’t seem to be very much in doubt.
After the Heat’s dramatic win, of course, the Spurs aren’t being given much of a chance to come back and triumph in the next game. It would seem...
With the championship on the line, emotions are running at an all-time high in tonight’s Game 7 matchup. Spurs guard Tony Parker was smack dab in the middle of a threeway conversation with Miami’s LeBron James and referee Danny Crawford when teammate Tim Duncan kindly reminded Parker that his presence was needed in the Spurs huddle by dragging the San Antonio guard to the sidelines...

The San Antonio Spurs were within seconds of clinching the 2013 NBA title — what would’ve been the franchise’s fifth since they drafted Tim Duncan in 1997 – but then, they collapsed.
As far as collapses are concerned, it was a respectable one, but the pain hurts all the same. Now, the Miami Heat will take the court for Game 7 this Thursday with both momentum and the NBA...
One more defensive rebound, and the Spurs would have been spraying champagne.
One more board, one measly Heat miss corralled by the Spurs in the final 23 seconds of regulation, and the NBA Finals are over. Forget a Game 7, forget LeBron James’ headband, forget Manu Ginobili laying a gigantic egg for the umpteenth time in the series. It should be over. Tim Duncan should be passionlessly...
In terms of classic GIF’s, this one of San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan pulling Tony Parker away from LeBron James by his jersey is an instant classic.
Clearly, Tim is older brother here…

MIAMI (AP) These NBA Finals were apparently about the kids.
Whether it was Tim Duncan spending a few minutes with his children at halftime of Game 5 of the series a scene captured by television cameras as the Spurs' forward sat on the floor resting up for the second half or Miami Heat star LeBron James celebrating one of his sons' birthdays in San Antonio last week, kids...
Game 6 of the NBA Finals started out at a frantic pace. Both the Heat and the Spurs seemed to be scoring at will. Tim Duncan found the fountain of youth in Game 6. He went 11 for 13 in the first half and was a beast in the paint on both sides of the court. He finished the game with 30 points and 17 rebounds, but it was not enough as the Heat won 103-100 in overtime to force a Game...
It’s the two best words in sports: Game 7.
Sports fans around the country are in for a treat tonight as the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs face off in a winner take all game for the NBA Championship.
After four consecutive blowouts in Games 2-5, Game 6 was one for the ages. It had everything you ever wanted in a finals game.
So after all the craziness that has been this year’s...
It was painful to watch as the San Antonio Spurs walked off the Heat home court in a Game 7 loss in the NBA Finals. It was the first time in the Spurs' history they lost in an NBA Finals.
The Spurs spoke about the loss and needless to say, the pain of losing in basketball's grandest stage was evident on their faces.
