• Rod Thorn

Current Philadelphia 76ers President, Rod Thorn, reflected on his time with the New Jersey Nets and spoke about the 2003 NBA Finals against the Spurs. He feels the Nets should have been the NBA Champions and not the Spurs. Looks like he isn’t over it after all these years:

“With the Nets, we went to the NBA Finals twice, but we were outmatched with Shaq and Kobe the first time. We didn’t have a shot. They were too good. I thought we had a great chance against San Antonio, though. We matched up well with them and we won one of the first two games in San Antonio. Then we were tied 2-2, and in Game 5 we throw the ball away in the last few minutes of a close game. We then go to San Antonio for Game 6 and have a double-digit lead and blow it. We should’ve been champions; I’ll always believe that. (source nba.com)
