The NBA playoffs are the best time of year for every NBA fan. In this video, we travel back to 2006 and take a look at a legendary, but somewhat forgotten playoff series between two of the best teams during that time. After the series was over, it even encouraged the NBA to change its playoff format. Hope you enjoy!

I make all kinds of NBA videos which include trivia, analysis, player stories, countdowns, conspiracies, and mysteries. Make sure to leave a like and subscribe if you enjoyed this video!

    sonics vs spurs in '05. That was a great and tough series. Maybe my favourite is spurs vs thunders in '14: that g5 is pure beauty. '05 Finals were definitely something worthy of mentioning

    this idiot analyst wannabe are freaking morons specially the Mavs fan. wtf. Mavs fault they lose u know why ur up 2-0 in the series and can't even win 1 game in the road? wtf. if the series was rigged in 2006 because got phantom calls, what about the MJ push off against Byron Russell that should been a offensive foul and what about the WCF Lakers vs Kings 2002 that series was totally rigged, the Kings should beat the Lakers, and what about Spurs vs Suns 2006 Semis WC the Refs and Spurs dictate that series so this freaking human being saying that the Mavs vs Heat Finals in 2006 is the only series that is rigged wtf u must be idiot for sure.

    You should have mentioned ginobili's goaltending. Without that, San Antonio would have another title. Include Derek Fisher's 3 and Ray Allen's 3 then the Spurs would have won 8 Championships with Duncan easily.

    I think you’re a dumb ass fag. The point of a division is to not waste gas. You play the teams in your region the most . You win that region you get a seed. You don’t win your region, you have to face Tim Duncan in round two. The math ain’t hard. You don’t understand why there are divisions? What about conferences? Should they just play random teams all year and fuck the playoffs too? Pussies complain about who they have to face when they couldn’t win their own division. Dumbass don’t understand the point of separating into conferences and divisions.

    Divisions are there to help with scheduling. Teams will play more games vs their own division than other teams for traveling purposes. Also, divisions are a still part of the NBA's tiebreaker rules.

    Respect for the Mavs but i really wish my Spurs won this series. Would have murdered the Heat. Ginobili committed the dumbest foul in NBA history.... they had the game all but locked up. Oh well i cant be too mad

    the NFL really need to adopt this rule too. I still laugh at the 7-9 division champ Seattle Seahawks who not only made the playoffs, but had home advantage over the 11-5 Saints, (and beat them) LOL
