San Antonio Spurs - 2004-05 NBA Champions

It's really great that the Spurs have finally won. After Derek Fisher's 0.6 second-buzzer beater last year, I was pretty determined that the Spurs will win the next time around. The Brent Barry joined the team, with mid-season acquisitions of Nazr Mohammed and Glenn Robinson bolstered their bench. Then there was the two ankle injuries of Tim Duncan that made me doubt if they could go all the way.

Why the Spurs Will Win

This is a bold statement, but you know that I love how San Antonio Spurs work as a team. Here are some reasons why:

  • How in the world does the team's top scorer come of the bench. Ginobili leads the team in scoring. You've got to love how Manu has taken that role as a sixth man. I love how a player accepts his role for a team victory, even though he has a right to be a starter. I remember the times when David Robinson gave up his role as main scorer and gave the task to Tim Duncan
