Heat vs. Spurs: Who will win the 2014 NBA Finals?

By Alon Calinao Dy: two-time defending champion Miami Heat  will battle against the veteran team Spurs on June 5 at the AT & T Center, home-court advantage for San Antonio Spurs. (Philippine Standard Time will be on June 6, friday, at  9 am in Btv channel).

Miami superstar and leading scorer Lebron James is a stumbling block for Spurs team since he is everywhere in the court and has no real weakness. He has best defense and offense. His presence in basketball is really felt by his rivals.

On the  other hand, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are excellent players and leading scorers of San Antonio Spurs.
Of course, Manu Ginobili is a good three-point shooter who can lead the team even to the final minute of the game.

It is very difficult to predict who is going to win the 2014 NBA Finals. But I am going to my Miami Heat team. I truly admire how Lebron, Wade and Bosh play together, as they share the ball unselfishly. I believe that they have the best chances of winning the championship.

However,  I would not take away my credits to San Antonio Spurs. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker,and Manu Ginobili are the "Big 3" of the team. They have been tested over the years for they won 111 postseason games since coming together during 2002-03 season. They have the heart of a champion and a combined effort is a key to success for this team.
