The San Antonio Spurs entered the season saddled with the weight of a crushing defeat at the hands of the Miami Heat at the 2013 NBA Finals, when they allowed the fifth championship in franchise history to slip from their grasp in the waning moments of Game 6. A less experienced team might have broken apart but instead, the NBA’s model of consistency was fuelled to find redemption in a rematch with the reigning champions.
Three-time NBA Coach of the Year Gregg Popovich rallied his international cast of characters in a yearlong pursuit of the league’s best record. When the post-season began, San Antonio’s highly decorated veterans Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili put their championship pedigrees on full display, as they dispatched the Dallas Mavericks and punished the Portland Trailblazers, before overwhelming the Oklahoma City Thunder in a wild Western Conference Finals. And when the opportunity to avenge their defeat at the hands of the Heat arrived, 22 year old Kawhi Leonard emerged to put his own stamp on the series with a performance that will long be remembered by basketball fans in the Alamo City and beyond.
On this action-packed DVD, you’ll relive the Spurs’ glorious fifth title run, built by blending the unique talents of the most diverse roster in NBA championship history. With exclusive interviews, exciting highlights, behind-the-scenes footage and riveting bonus features, you’ll have a courtside seat, as San Antonio’s storybook season comes to life.
