First-timers vs veterans...yes ! Prentenders vs frequent owners...yes ! Mismatch...most probably !
That's the painful but true reflection of how the NBA Play-off Finals were. In one of the lop-sided Finals in recent history, San Antonio Spurs swept the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-0 with the fourth game played in Ohio, Cleveland last night.
Tony Parker turned on his spark and poured 24 points for the Spurs to pick the Most Valuable Player-Playoffs for year 2006-7.
Manu Ginobili came alive too as he topped Spurs scoring board with 27 points. The remaining Twin Tower, Tim Duncan(the other was David Robinson) had a 12 point and 15 rebounds game.
The so-called "King" has to wait a little longer for him to wear the crown after being held to 24 points, though he can take consolation for the birth of his second son the night before.
25-year old Parker picked his first MVP award snatching a quick one from Tim Duncan. He was seen celebrating with his more famous fiancee, Eva Longoria.
A few of the Spurs - Brent Barry ,Jacque Vaughn and Michael Finley- won their first.
Robert Horry got another one,his 7th , the most by a non-Boston Celtics player.
