For this installment we have decided to focus on local coverage of the 2013 NBA Finals:
- “The Spurs are 14-2 in potential series-clinching games played on the road since the start of the 2002-03 postseason, according to ESPN. The rest of the NBA is 61-75 in that time span.” (via The Miami Herald)
- LeBron James had a historic season shooting form the field, but “James’ 43.6 percent shooting in this series is surprising, considering he made 56.5 percent of his shots during the regular season -remarkable for a non-center.” (via The Miami Herald)
- On the other hand, the Spurs Danny Green has had researchers scrambling to explain his historic shooting performance thus far. (via mysanantonio.com)
- When asked about the San Antonio Spurs previous NBA Championships, coach Gregg Popovich said, “Those are basically in the Dark Ages.” (via mysanantonio.com)
