The face plant is funny, but it's the momentary daze, followed by the hurried waddle that carries our hero out of the frame that really makes this. That is the gait of a man who is convinced that if he just keeps moving, the massive amount of pain that awaits him will never come.

So many of the San Antonio Spurs played perfect games last night that it's impossible to pick out a single performance as the one that sealed the franchise's fifth championship. You could point to Patty Mills raining threes, Kawhi Leonard's stunning two-way dominance, or even Tim Duncan's steady hand in the post. But…

It looked bad, LeBron getting Paul Pierced off the court, a Finals opener sliding wetly to an uneventful end, Gatorade trolling down from the ramparts of for-profit pseudo-science.
