After letting game 7 between the Spurs and Heat sink in for almost 24 hours, I’m still incredibly impressed by the quality of play and the competitiveness of the series. It could be the best series I have watched in my nearly 20 years of watching basketball. I think I texted “This is AWESOME!” about 53 times last night to friends, family and random numbers.
Here are a few of my thoughts about what we just witnessed:
This past week I was in New York City for a conference. On Tuesday night the conference ended and there was a huge after party. We rented out the Sky Room bar/club, which was great, except there was only one TV and Game 6 of the NBA Finals was on.
At 9pm people started gathering around the TV, first just a few guys, then more and more people as the game went on. We were all about to witness one of the greatest basketball games I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately I had already had quite a few beers, so I don’t remember every little detail as I usually do during sporting events, but I do remember seeing incredible performances, a great comeback, feeling tremendous excitement and feeling that we were watching greatness.
