The Rundown:

The San Antonio Spurs feel they can rewrite history this year, getting the ultimate revenge for a six-game defeat at the hands of the Miami Heat in last year's legendary Finals series.

For Tim Duncan, that means doing everything in his power to put the painful memories of last year to good use.

"It lasts. I have a very good memory, especially for my misses and losses. You keep those, you learn from them and you hope to change them next time," Duncan stated about the 2013 NBA Finals, via ESPN.com.

LeBron James, on the other hand, isn't buying into the notion that last year's games will have any effect on what occurs this year.

"Last year is last year and we're excited about it, but this trophy this year belongs to nobody," James said, reinforcing that the games at hand are the only things that matter.

"It's up for grabs."

James is correct, at least when it comes to NBA analysts trying to predict this series.

No other NBA Finals in recent memory has split opinion this much, leaving an entire nation of basketball fans completely riveted about what is yet to come.
