Every year I think the Spurs have a chance to win another championship. The excitement and dreams of raising another banner begin each October. Then there's six months of waiting til the playoffs. It's always hard to tell what seed the Spurs will be, but making the playoffs is pretty much guaranteed. And then it starts to happen, the Spurs knock off one team after another. All the way up until they finally do it, they become Western Conference Champions. Last night was a 6 year dream come true.
I'm so happy and proud that the Spurs were able to make it back to the NBA Finals. They're playing very well and only have one team standing in the way of their 5th Championship. Whether its LeBron and the Heat or George Hill and the Pacers, neither team can hang with the Spurs. It won't be easy, but I know we can do it. Tony Parker is playing out of his mind, Tim Duncan is playing like he did during our previous Championship runs, and Manu Ginobili is coming through when we need him. Plus, we have a whole team of role players that know how to be team players. This is probably the best and deepest roster the Spurs have ever had. I just know we have this Championship in the bag.
Finally, I would like to say "You're welcome" to all Spurs fans. I know that the reason they've done so well is because my son, Marcelo was born. And if the Spurs have a chance to close it out at the AT&T Center, I will do everything I can to have him at the game. Go Spurs Go!
