San Antonio Spurs fans are probably still stunned over how the Spurs 2011-12 season came to a crushing end. After sweeping their way to the Western Conference Finals and going up 2-0, San Antonio lost four games in a row to the Oklahoma City Thunder in one grand implosion.
The bench disappeared, shots were not falling, players were not stepping up their game and much more happened at the worst possible time. But you cannot totally put the blame on San Antonio. Much credit goes to OKC for making the right adjustments and taking the Spurs out of their game.
Something Manu Ginobili acknowledges.
In his column for Argentinian site Canchallena, Ginobili reflected the Spurs series loss to OKC and in true fashion, showed great sportsmanship towards the Thunder.
We have nothing to regret. There comes a time when you face a team that plays better than yours and you win, period. It may sound simple, but so is sports. Oklahoma City has more talent than us and beat us well.
Ginobili spoke on how painful it was to lose on Wednesday to the Oklahoma City and also talks about how proud he was of this team, because even though they didn't win the title, he was still proud of the team for reaching the level it did when they were once again claimed to be "old."
And as much as Spurs fans may still be reeling over how the Spurs were dispatched in the playoffs, take a note from Manu and keep your chin up high.
