Why the champion Spurs will beat the Heat’s champions
The famous addage goes that a champion team will always beat a team of champions and we are about to see it happen in the NBA playoffs.
The San Antonio Spurs are a champion team with no room for big egos. They have been built by the master coach Greg Popovich, who always puts the team first.
That’s not to say they don’t have some good players. Tony Parker,Manu Ginobli and Tim Duncan are all at the top of the heap, but each is willing to sacrifice their own game for the team good. You wont see scoring titles or MVPs, but you will see a championship.
We then come to the big egos of the Miami Heat: MVP Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. These guys are all about ego, who has the ball at crunch time and who is the main man?
Each has complained at various times about not getting enough shots and each has been seen criticising the coach. In fact it is even questionable whether the players or coach are running the team.
A champion team will always beat a team of champions. And it takes a true champion to put his ego aside and do what’s best for the team.
The Heat may have the fanfare the pay cheques and all the attention, but it is the Spurs who will be hoisting the championship trophy.
