Stop distorting the facts to your advantage

pretty much what happens when you create a super team like the 2004 lakers or 2009 Yankees - they might win one, and will contend for a chip for up to 5 years, but not a dynasty.

Everything converged in that one moment. Had Manu made 1 free throw, it was game over and SA champs.

Every close game and close series converges on the final moment.

Wasn't that Kawhi Leonard?

No, see, that was a different convergence point a whole nine seconds later. Clearly you aren't familiar with the concept of a multiverse, where there's an infinite number of parallel universes branching apart from separate results from parallel events, each of which can be used as the basis for forming a separate idfnl opinion, regardless of true evidence or logic. This controversial and complicated quantum physics theorem is the reason why there can be made a literally infinite number of asterisks placed upon MIA's championship, depending on which is convenient at the time.

Manu missed 2 with 20 some seconds left. IMO, you can forgive a career 84% ft shooter missing one, but not missing 2. And he turned the ball over a ton that game and generally played badly, but that's beside the point. I can form my opinions based on anything I want, physics aside. Go back in this thread a year, I wasn't the only one that mentioned Manu's 2 misses.

If there a sly Vonnegut reference there I am worship.gif at the multiple layers on which the pun operates.

are we referring to the alternate universe in which you weren't the only one mentioning manu's 2 misses w/ 20 seconds left because that's the alternate universe in which manu actually missed 2 ft's w/ 20 seconds left?

or are you referring to this universe where he actually hit 3/4 free throws in the last minute?

Bravo.
Although I enjoy reading, and get real utility from, your real work as well.
