Nobody wants to be remembered for choking? Just ask Bill Buckner.
Last night, the San Antonio Spurs possibly choked away a championship. They led the Miami Heat by 5 points with 20 seconds to play and lost in OT. That’s a choke. You don’t blow 5 point leads with 20 seconds to play. You just can’t do that. Not with a title on the line!
I’ll argue that the Spurs’ choke job last night might be the 2nd biggest choke in the history of sports. Why? Because of what they potentially lost.
