Le Bron JAMES, Welcome to the NBA Finals.
For the past week, everyone seems to be talking about a destiny calling (which I'm sure at some point in the future) without even realizing that this place its not for the fainted heart.
Arguably the much talk about Final in recent times, San Antonio SPURS drew first blood as they defeated the Cleveland CAVALIERS by 85-76, to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
Well done Tim DUNCAN (24 points) and Tony PARKER (27 points), you guys were the star of the night. But how would all this be possible without the mercurial talent of Manu GINOBILI, who notched 16 points, 8 rebounds & 1 steal. Well Big POPO's decision to leave MANU on the bench continue to puzzle many of us here, but even he would deny that there is no one else better to rely on from the bench.MANU was certainly everywhere, even when not scoring he also had a hand in controlling the young Le Bron.
What about Fabricio OBERTO? Though he might have achieve plenty in his career but maybe, just maybe this was whole a new different level for him. Though there was no points for him tonight, instead he had posted 4 rebounds & 2 assists, he had a much more complicated task ahead for him as he had to contain Cleveland's Zydrunas IILGAUSKAS. And certainly OBERTO did a wonderful job in the battle of the center, as the Lithuanian only had a mere 2 points to his credit.
This series in certainly far from over yet and I'm itching right now for Game 2, which will be on the 10th of June at San Antonio.
