This is the third installment of NBA Entertainment’s behind the scenes look at the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs, and three things jumped out at me.
1. Tim Duncan’s truly woeful wardrobe.
2. Ray Allen and Chris Bosh’s pre-game speech didn’t have the same impact as Dwyane Wade’s gem from Game 2.
3. Greg Popovich’s hilariously calm and sarcastic tone when getting on Gary Neal for his poor defense on Mike Miller and Allen.

To be honest, most of us would probably freak out if an NBA player fell into our laps during a game and last night during game three of the 2013 NBA Finals, one lucky Spurs fan got the chance to catch Tim Duncan.
Keep an eye on the blonde woman sitting in the lower level as Duncan dives into the stands to save a loose ball and her shocked look upon catching Tim:
David Robinson was 37 years old when he retired, his legacy as the greatest player in San Antonio Spurs history firmly intact.
It's been 10 years since Robinson left the team in the hands of Tim Duncan and a couple of young guards named Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.
Now it's Duncan's legacy that is being debated as the Spurs entered Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Thursday...
For 16 seasons, San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan has amassed an NBA resume that would make any NBA player envious. From four NBA titles, two NBA MVPs, countless All-Star appearances to three NBA Finals MVP trophies, there is no doubt he is destined to be enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Currently, his Spurs are in the thick of things with the Miami Heat as they battle...
In Game 4 of the NBA Finals Thursday night there was a sequence of basketball-deliciousness that needs to be seen to be believed. Stephen Douglas of The Big Lead referred to it as “basketball porn” and I really can’t argue with that assessment. Late in the third quarter, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili drove into the lane and threw a behind-the-head pass to Tim Duncan...
Tim Duncan had six points and two rebounds to help the San Antonio Spurs take a 24-20 lead over the Miami Heat after one quarter in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night.
Kawhi Leonard had five points and three rebounds and the Spurs shot 61 percent from the field in the first finals game in San Antonio since 2007.
Dwyane Wade got off to another quick start for the Heat, scoring...
SAN ANTONIO - Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem has had to defend the likes of Roy Hibbert, and Joakim Noah during Miami's postseason run to the NBA Finals and now he finds himself guarding perhaps the greatest big man of this era in the NBA - San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan.
Duncan has been having a solid postseason averaging 17.4 points, 1.7 blocks, 2.2 assists, 9.6 rebounds...
PRICE TO PAY
Chris Bosh was fined by the NBA for flopping during the second quarter of Game 2. The call went in his favor, but not the money.
Have you ever wanted to hit a soft bank-shot like Tim Duncan? Perhaps hit the teardrop shot on your way to the rim? Or maybe hit your defender with a euro-step like Manu Ginobili?
Well you can still do that but good look seeing through these Spurs head tee shirts.
Local San Antonio business Ace Screen Graphics has been printing out tee shirts where a San Antonio Spurs fan...
After a horrible Game 3 LeBron James picked up his game big time in Game 4. James finished with 33 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. One of those blocks came on Spurs big man Tim Duncan.
Late in the 3rd quarter Manu Ginobili drove the lane and threw a no look behind the head pass to Duncan. It looked like Duncan was going to have a wide open dunk. However, James...
SAN ANTONIO -- Chris Bosh might have had a poster on his wall of Tim Duncan while growing up. But he hasn't been standing around and admiring Duncan during the NBA Finals.He's been holding his own.The Miami Heat center was mostly paranormal in the Eastern Conference finals win over the Indiana Pacers. Before Game 7, he said he had apologized to his teammates for his play...
The rain outside contributed to the crowd, Tim Duncan, and Tony Parker being late to the arena Tuesday night for Game 3 of the NBA Finals. That same rain appeared to inspire a couple of their teammates to make it rain inside the arena on the Heat.
Danny Green and Gary Neal combined for 13 three-pointers to lead the Spurs over the Heat in a record setting blowout win, 113-77.
It’s one thing to get blocked by an opposing player. It’s another to have a dunk rejected by the buzzer.
Chris Bosh seemed to be working past the troubles that have plagued his NBA Finals appearance — and much of his time with the Heat, for that matter — on Thursday night. Miami’s Big Three all came out firing, with LeBron James‘ 33 points (on, hello, 60 percent shooting...
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- From big 3s to Big Three, the Spurs had it all in the NBA Finals' raucous return to San Antonio.
Danny Green made seven of the Spurs' finals-record 16 3-pointers, Tim Duncan had 12 points and 14 rebounds, and the Spurs clobbered the Miami Heat 113-77 on Tuesday night to take 2-1 lead in the series.
Green scored 27 points and Gary Neal made six 3-pointers...
The San Antonio Spurs first possession wasn't anything groundbreaking. Tony Parker received a screen from Tim Duncan at the top of the arc and Miami trapped Parker aggressively. Duncan slipped into the lane and Parker fed him the pass.
Chris Bosh, defending Tiago Splitter on the play, dropped down for a beat to help on Duncan. Udonis Haslem quickly scampered from the top...
Greatness is easily overlooked when it’s quiet.
We witnessed Ali because we heard him. We revered Jordan because he revered himself. And even in the hyperbaric chamber that is Bill Belichick’s Patriot headquarters, we understood dominance because the Boston media broke through the barriers and documented a dynasty.
Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs silently defined an era of basketball...
