Heat - Spurs - NBA Finals

To be perfectly honest, I’m still trying to process WTF that was we watched Tuesday night.

As a guy who has seen his fair share of emotional roller coasters in sports throughout the years, Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals ranks somewhere near the pinnacle.

And what do we get for taking 2.6 years off our lives? The chance to do it one more time on the grandest stage in sports – Game 7. Sure, the narratives will once again shift to “Can the Spurs recover?,” or “Here come the Heat!,” but everything the mainstream media will build into this game is irrelevant. Tweaked ankles, bum hamstrings, fading hairlines, they’re all dead issues now. Do or die. Win or go home. It’s the last game of the season.

There was a point during Game 6 where it felt I went two hours without breathing. I expect more of the same come Thursday night. But, ayo, forget all that for one moment. Shout out to the TSS conglomerate for going damn near DOUBLE PLATINUM IN THE COMMENTS THOUGH! Let’s rally the troops one more time for old times sake as we bid farewell to the NBA season and all collectively get our minds right for NFL training camp. It’s been one hell of a ride, ladies and gents.

As a special attraction to our playoff coverage, we’re offering PLAYOFF BADGES! Here’s how it works:

1. “For each Playoff post, you can perform two out of three different activities: share on Twitter, share on Facebook, or drop a comment. Or you can just drop two comments to count as your two activities.

2. Each time you participate you earn a new badge.

3. Each badge lets you work up the ranks of the Playoffs. Your first badge will be the Milwaukee Bucks, but you can eventually work your way up both East and Western Conferences on your way to the NBA Trophy badge. How often you share determines how many badges you earn. Good luck!
