5 Free Agent Fits

These five impact free agents would be best suited on the following teams:

Paul Pierce- Indiana Pacers or Los Angeles Clippers/Lakers
PP has some options here.  The storybook ending would have him heading home to LA for a final season, preferably with Doc Rivers and the Clip show.  However, he could probably get a more lucrative offer from the Lakers.  Roundball Manor feels his best fit would be with the Pacers, playing alongside Paul George and setting up another Eastern Conference Finals battle against the Heat.

NBA Mock Draft

1. Cleveland Cavaliers- Andrew Wiggins- SF
He makes the most sense, can play both SG and SF which they need, is a freak athlete and will only improve over the next several years.  His defense and range is what sets him apart from Jabari Parker.  He is now the surefire #1 pick, but just remember, it's the Cavs picking so who the hell knows.

NBA Finals Recap

NBA Finals, NBA Finals Tim Duncan, Tim Duncan Finals, Tim Duncan, Spurs 5th championship, NBA Finals 2014
"Who wants some?"

That picture just about sums it up.  Well mostly.

You could call the closing out of this series a clinic, a medical dissection, or just a good old fashioned passionate ass whoopin.  Any of those choices will still lead you to the same road; redemption.  The Spurs didn't just win this series, they royally dethroned King James and company in their quest for a three-peat.

Make the extra pass.  Find the open man.  Believe in your teammates.  These mantras of Coach Pop were never more evident and never more important then in this series.  The ultimate difference in this series was the Spurs ability to exploit the interior defense of Miami, opening up the floor and creating unlimited options from all angles.  It can also be attributed to having three highly skilled pass-first big men who took advantage of the smaller Heat lineup and worked their system to pure perfection.
