Eye on Basketball Podcast: Spurs' offseason and road trip
Zach Harper and Graydon Gordian discuss the end of the 2013 Finals, the Spurs' offseason, and plan a road trip for Mexico City.
I'm joined by Graydon Gordian, editor emeritus of 48MinutesOfHell.com, to talk everything San Antonio Spurs. First, we rehash the end of the 2013 NBA Finals to see how Graydon is doing with the Spurs' collapse at the end of Game 6 and the loss in Game 7 to the Miami Heat. Is it possible to appreciate what Ray Allen, Chris Bosh, and the Heat did in that Game 6 comeback, even as a Spurs fan? Is it one of the greatest series ever? Why was it so memorable, even in the blowouts?
Then we get onto the Spurs' offseason and the moves they've made. There wasn't much to do for a team that was 28 seconds away from the NBA title victory. Is there justification for re-signing Manu Ginobili for two more years and $14.5 million when he looked so bad last year? Did the Spurs have to pay for size and mobility in their four-year, $36 million with Tiago Splitter? Were they able to upgrade with losing Gary Neal and signing Marco Belinelli?
We discuss all of this, plus what clutch actually is, scheduling issues, and plan a road trip to Mexico City.

This is music to Minnesota's ears
Gay and Divac are clearly not on the same page
The young dunk contest runner-up will start at small forward for Orlando
This is probably not the way to use this
They both had the same result so the realism is impressive
Nothing makes sense and everything makes sense at the same time
