Revenge? No. Redemption? Yes.

The San Antonio Spurs are NBA champions. They beat the Miami Heat in the 2014 NBA Finals in five games, after coming so close to winning last year. The Spurs’ mistakes from last year didn’t come back to haunt them. Instead, it motivated them to get back the Finals this season and win.

The Spurs were the best team in the NBA this year. Key word: TEAM. The Spurs deserved to win the NBA title, because they play the right way and with the right principles. They play for each other, they play selflessly, and they make sacrifices for their teammates.

2014 NBA Finals Prediction

Game 1 of the NBA Finals is tonight, and here’s my quick prediction on who will win the NBA title in 2014:

The San Antonio Spurs are a well-oiled machine, and they have home-court advantage this time around. The Heat have struggled on the road, and it’s incredibly hard for an NBA team to win a championship, let alone three in a row. The Spurs are great at finding a team’s weakness and taking advantage of it.

Manu Ginobili is stepping up, Tony Parker will be ready, and Tim Duncan will lead the Spurs to the NBA title that they let slip away last year. This is what the Spurs have prepared for all season, and they will do everything they can to rectify last year’s mistakes and win a championship this year.

Prediction: Spurs in 7
