If Kawhi, Ginobili, Duncan and Parker are all part of the engine that make the Spurs go, as Pop said in his post-game interview, then James is the Heat's entire car (and he's dragging a giant camper full of all his teammates).

When both teams are at their best, the Spurs motion O is a perfect foil to the Heat's trappy D: San Antonio flows quickly from one action into the next, each player cutting constantly as the ball whips around, in search of the open man.

Kawhi Leonard Takes Over Game 3 And Changes The Course Of The NBA Finals

The one guy for the Spurs who can change this series is Kawhi Leonard -- nobody else on the roster can defend LeBron James that well. But what Leonard did in Game 3 was not only bother James (22 points and seven turnovers) as well as force him to use screens for offense, but also completely take over the game offensively. Leonard -- who, ironically, hails from Los Angeles and went unrecruited by the LA schools before going to San Diego State -- scored a career-high 29 points on 10-13 shooting.

NBA Finals Game 2: Bosh Plays Big

The Heat ask Bosh to fill a near-impossible role: to play like a Nowitzki-Aldridge hybrid, but without the post-touches that help those guys get into an offensive rhythm.

LeBron James Leads Heat To NBA Finals Title With Legendary Performance

Game 6 of the NBA Finals was such a seesaw battle of emotions and just sheer basketball that nobody, perhaps not even the San Antonio or Miami players, knew what Game 7 would bring us. And, after a two-point Heat lead at halftime where a series of jabs and hooks were thrown, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade offered a solution: Play like the superstars they are.

Heat Win Game 6, But Dwyane Wade's Struggles Continue To Mount

Jordan Schultz | Posted 08.19.2013 | Sports

Heading into Game 7, we are faced with a litany of questions -- namely centered around why Popovich subbed out Tim Duncan and Tony Parker late in Game 6; how in the world the league's most consistent team and well-run organization choked away a surefire win; and whether or not either one of these teams has anything left in the tank. Maybe, though, the question we should be asking is what will Dwyane Wade provide for the Heat, because lightning won't strike the same place twice.
