Spurs, Secret to Success: R.C. Buford

Fri, 06/13/2014 - 8:03am

Here we are again. The Heat versus The Spurs. The implacable consistency of San Antonio against the superstar chemistry of Miami. Two all-time great teams, with two potentially all-time great coaches -if Spoltra's initial success is maintained at even some smaller percentage- and two all-time great GMs, battling for their right to leave an indelible legacy upon the league.

Getting back from Zagreb around 4 am we took a quick sleep and by 9 am we were up and ready to go for another day at adidas Eurocamp. The menu on tap for today was pretty scrumptious, with the Next Generation group with the best 1998 and 1999 in Europe competing for 2 hours in front of all the scouts and the game between the talented Team USA and the All-Star Team where Micic, after his “below par” performance of day 1, was in search of redemption.
