7 years ago today, Spurs swept LeBron and Cavs in the finals (funny postgame convo between Duncan and James)
Geege Schuman stashed this in Basketball
After Tim Duncan and the Spurs swept the Cavs during the 2007 NBA Finals, Duncan gave LeBron (who shot 10-30 in GM4) a hug and said “This is going to be your league in a little while. I appreciate you giving it to us this year.”
Unless LeBron and the Heat are able to pull off a miracle, it looks like Duncan and the Spurs will be celebrating another championship this year but nobody should say “LeBron gave it to him.”
Thanks for stashing this -- I had no idea.
This IS LeBron's league but this year the Spurs are too healthy and the Heat are too injured.
So this year feels like the Spurs' year.
I wonder if Tim Duncan will retire after this year.
