By beating the San Antonio Spurs 107-99 to cap off a thrilling Western Conference Finals series on Wednesday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder ruined my dream of a Celtics versus Spurs NBA Finals.
If you're a true NBA fan, you wanted to see old school superstars Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett - former Western Conference "power forward" rivals (I put "power forward" in quotes as they're both really centers) square off for one more championship apiece. Moreover, it's always exciting when former championship teams compete against each other - it brings the NBA Finals an extra level of gravitas. Plus, the Celtics and Spurs are two of the few NBA franchises with multiple titles (17 for Boston, 4 for San Antonio).
Disappointed that we won't be seeing Duncan vs. Garnett in the NBA Finals ...
