They're not going to get anything close to $20m again, especially with their deteriorating play. They would almost enough for a max player, but only six players on the roster. Do you throw that money at a FA and continue to fill the rest of your roster with minimum contracts? They would have to get some offensive fire power -- Stuckey, Bledsoe, or Lowry from the guard spots/Monroe, Amare, or Pau up front. Even with any of those guys, they would instantly drop to the bottom of the Eastern playoff bracket. Or do you try to build a team and stop buying players? Or tank for Jahlil Okafor in next summer's draft?

But the fact that it was against the Heat forced me to put this into perspective and really appreciate this for what it was. If you're a fan of fundamental team basketball, you're happy for the Spurs. Eventually, we will look back on all this and be happy to say that we were fortunate to watch an amazing basketball dynasty. Pop/Duncan/Parker/Gino will go down in the history books, and we got to see them defy the odds and absolutely dominate a more physically gifted team by playing smart team-oriented basketball. I hope we can find some way to miraculously build another championship contender around Kobe so he can finish ahead of TD with 6, but if it doesn't work out that way, it's all good.

Watching their demise was fantastic. I felt like a villain in a movie the way I took joy from those guys' failures. It was almost as nice as watching the Lakers actually playing well.
