Watch what Heat, Spurs have to say about Game 7

Jun 19, 2013, 6:57 PM EDT

One day after as dramatic an NBA Finals game as you will ever see — and one day before a Game 7 to decide the NBA crown — the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs were back on the practice court and talking to the media.

The Miami players, as you might expect, seemed confident after a fortuitous Game 6 win. They are home and they know that history favors them. Plus, they have LeBron James.

The San Antonio players are professional — the team that was understandably dejected after a tough loss Tuesday by Wednesday looked like they had bounced back mentally. They know they get one more crack at banner No. 5.

The biggest question for Game 7 is not if they can mentally bounce back, you know Gregg Popovich will have them ready. The question is will they be physically back after an exhausting Game 6 that had Tim Duncan playing nearly 45 minutes and Tony Parker cramping.

    Everyone on TV seems to be grilling POP for not having Timmy in the game when the Heat got those 2 offensive rebounds….leave the 4 time champ alone ppl

      If they grilled Vogel, they can grill Pop. The man’s only won 4 rings. He’s not Phil Jackson with 11 + 2 as a player.

      Nobody’s perfect, as the detractors of LeBron James love pointing out 24/7.

    Where’s my boy redbaron at today? Swearing up and down the only way to win was to get a ton of fastbreak points lol. What’d I say, redbaron? Get Spurs to turnover at a little above average clip, and limit their 3-point attempts. Boom, nuff said

      Dude, go somewhere with this crap. You and just about every other Heat “fan” thought the game was over. The Spurs controlled the entire game! You are probably one of those fair weather Heat “fans” that would’ve been in your car by the time ot started. Now you want to gloat….Whatever.

        Hello, and yes I am a Heat Fan, I did turn the game off at the beginning of the 4th QTR, however I went back to the game at about 8 minutes to go in the game. But Gloat, I can recall at the Spurs supporters “crowing” very loudly after game 6. Huh ? As a fan, I believe my opinion, or that of anyone`s should be respected. Its about both “Dishing it out, and being able to take it”

    How can you not be a fan of a pompous arse with the word “chosen” on his back? Chosen by whom? Whoever is behind him?

    • omahakidw - Jun 20, 2013 at 1:26 PM

      Chosen by the league to be the face of this very same league as its future as it pertains to Marketing. Everybody else took a back seat. Magic, and Bird when Jordan came into the NBA, Jordan when Kobe came into the NBA, and now Kobe now that LeBron is here. Your complaint is with the marketing Department of the league

    As a Laker fan who’s watched Kobe’s whole career I would say that Lebron is and has always been far more of a classy player than Kobe. Just different personalities but i’ve never found a reason to dislike Lebron especially not for his talent.

    And as a Laker fan I can say that i’d be happy for either Tim Duncan or Lebron if they win it, both class individuals and the type of character guys who should end up as champions.

    Anybody who wants to blame Pop is in the wrong, Pop had the game to beat the Heat, he played it perfectly, but even he cannot control how his team shoots free throws. If a few guys hit their free throws when it counts, there’s no amount of rebounding to make a difference for that 3 shot to save the Heat.

    Either way, been a fantastic finals series
