2013-14 Basketball Season Roster
- Cake Walk on the River Walk: Spurs win Finals in 5 after 62-win season
- No Three-Peat: James surrenders MVP to Durant; Heat cools off in Finals
- Bounce Backs: Blazers, Raptors, and Wizards all make big turnarounds
Classy San Antonio avenged its seven-game finals loss of a year ago to trendy Miami with a dominant five-game Finals that gave Tim Duncan his fifth ring rather than LeBron James his third straight. The King surrendered his MVP crown, too, to 32-point scorer Kevin Durant, marking the first time since 2001 that the NBA’s leading scorer was named MVP.
The rest of the NBA offered something fresh, too. With the traditionally dominant Lakers, Celtics and Knicks all suffering miserable seasons, the new 50-win powers were Oklahoma City (59), the LA Clippers (57), Indiana (56), Houston and Portland (54), Golden State (51) and Memphis (50). With Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose and Robin Lopez on the sidelines almost all year, Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge, Houston’s James Harden, Golden State’s Stephen Curry, Indiana’s Paul George and Chicago’s Joakim Noah joined the NBA’s elite with superstars Durant, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love and Tony Parker.
