This is a decent round-up for the beginner, from the Guardian (Who are themselves less-than-experts — a few half-baked facts, especially about the SAS ’96 season: it wasn’t a tank job, good heavens! Do read the comments too. Here, have an excerpt.
If anything, the fact that both Wade and Bosh are beat up is probably the biggest advantage the Spurs have. This will sound like a cop out, and most likely is a cop out, but the results of these finals will probably revolve around health. If Wade and Bosh are healthier and more effective than they were during the Eastern Conference finals, the Heat should be able to the defeat the Spurs. If not, the Spurs officially will have the second- and third-best players in the series in Parker and Duncan, and will have a shot at championship No 5.
Are you keeping in touch?
PS: Yay, because I’m a Spurs fan (ah the sheer irony of it!)
