Spurs Championship

Sweet, sweet revenge.

The San Antonio Spurs handed LeBron James (who has since returned to Cleveland) and the Miami Heat a sound ass-whooping on the court this year with their fifth Championship, the fourth-highest total for a team in NBA history.

While James went crying all the way home to the banks of Lake Erie, San Antonio pretty much kept its roster intact, and is on the way to another solid season. There were questions whether Tim Duncan would retire, but he opted for one more year of NBA power forward greatness.

As of press time, Los Spurs were 17 and 9 trailing the Mavs, Rockets and Grizzlies, but were also steadily closing that gap. We know that Pop won't settle for anything less than first place.

Go Spurs Go!
