2 wins. 4 losses.
The San Antonio Spurs lost to the OKC Thunder in Game 6 of the 2016 NBA Playoffs. Heartbreaking. Again. I still recall how we lost the 2013 NBA Championships back then against the Miami Heat. 2012 we lost against the OKC Thunder too. Then we lost to the LA Clippers last year. I thought this will be OUR YEAR for the 6th NBA Championship Ring… but no.
Destiny has other plans for us, for our team. Aldridge is here, Kawhi is still young, Danny Green can still improve but Manu and Timmy might not be back again next year. The GSW will still brag about being the might-be-Champions. I hope they lose against the Cavs. I hope the Thunder lose against the GSW. I hope… I hope TD, Manu and TP can still one more ring. Together.
I am angry at the results of the Philippine Vice President results. I am so darn tired of my work. I hate traveling back and forth from the house to the office every night. Then I came home with the OKC on a 20+ points lead against my SAS!? Where is justice in there?!
Forgive me for my rants. I am a BIG San Antonio Spurs fan. I wrote this article back in 2013 with tears and I am really heartbroken. Now, I am writing this piece with another heartache and tears, and with Jack Daniels. I can’t believe they lost just like that. It’s really hard for me to swallow this loss. 2013 was a heartbreaking loss… and then this one.
Part to blame are the NBA Referees who are not calling the needed calls and making the calls on miscues. But as irritating as it may, SAS never put the blame on them. There was even a scene where Kawhi questioned a ref’s call! KAWHI QUESTIONED A REF! How often do we see Kawhi question a call?
TD, TP and Manu might not come back next year. Age has caught up. Fathertime won’t and can’t be denied anymore. We need young ones to carry the tradition and the torch. We need Danny Green to improve more and more. Kawhi Leonard to be fiercer and be more than what he is now. We need to have LaMarcus Aldridge develop into the player that he is needed to be, tough.
I am still and will always be a San Antonio Spurs fan. Win or lose. My loyalty is theirs alone. SAS wins with grace, and losses with class and dignity.
