Spurs prove once again you don't have to have best players to win title

Publish date:

Some people want to make this series a referendum on LeBron James and his "legacy," whatever that means, but if you understood what you were watching, you know this series wasn't about James at all. He averaged 28.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and four assists, and his percentages (57 from the field, 52 from three, 79 from the free-throw line) were extraordinary. The Spurs whipped Miami anyway, just as they beat Kevin Durant's Thunder in the last series. Durant and James are the two best players in the world by almost any measure. But it's a team game, and the best team won.
