"Ahh, I was wondering what would break first, your spirit or your body." Bane, The Dark Knight Rises.
Sorry, The Dark Knight Rises as been on HBO a lot the last couple of days, so that quote has been on my mind. The San Antonio Spurs may be broken. Their spirit may be broken from letting a five point lead (and their fifth championship) slip away with less than 30 seconds to go in regulation. The bodies could be broken from going all out in an overtime game that saw Tim Duncan play 44 of those 53 minutes and get his knee rolled up on.
Still, that was Game 6 and it only tied up the series. It's entirely possible this isn't the back breaker many Spurs fans thought it to be immediately following the loss. It hurt, but in the way a shot to the body hurts. It puts you down for a bit, but unless it's a nice kidney shot like Miguel Cotto used to throw, it's not going to put you down for good.
