5g. TNT's Charles Barkley on who will win the 2014 NBA Finals: "It's been amazing what the Spurs have accomplished. I didn't think they could come back from last year's Finals from a mental and physical standpoint. I think Miami is going to win the championship again. No disrespect to the Spurs. They have the best point guard, coach and fans in the NBA, but I just think Miami is going to win."
