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.

AT&T CENTER--In the two days off following one of the worst playoff performances of his career, all Manu Ginobili could hear were a series of dire questions. What was wrong with his game?

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.

After allowing San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green to set a Finals record with 25 3-pointers in just five games, the Miami Heat and center Chris Bosh are not going to let the 25-year-old have his way in Game 6 Tuesday night. “He has a knack for shooting, but he
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 [...]
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.
