Yes, the Spurs, a workingman's team and an unselfish team that receives far too few accolades, beat the brat super star team from South Beach, or excuse me, Miami, in dramatic fashion to notch a game one victory in the NBA Finals. Way to go Spurs.
San Antonio reminds me of the way it was growing up in Wallace. Teamwork did not have to be taught. No, team work was just ingrained in the culture of the town and the Coeur D' Alene mining district. You and mining partner worked as one because your very lives depended on it, much like it is in the military and law enforcement.
Wallace High sport's teams played as a team. We really did not have too many super stars. Oh yes, there were a few really gifted athletes like Bob Jones, but most were just really good because of hard work, devotion to the school and teams, and sheer determination and will power.
My brother told me , and I am sire GF will concur, teams from much bigger schools dreaded playing Wallace in football because they hit so much harder than the bigger schools, and win, lose or draw, they knew that they had been in a battle.
Wallace played as a team, lost as a team, and celebrated a unique life style that was growing up Wallace
