Winners and Losers from 2013 NBA Finals

Technically, just one winner—the Miami Heat—emerged from the 2013 NBA Finals. In the same way, the San Antonio Spurs were the only loser.

But that's a reductive way to look at one of the most entertaining, unpredictable and dramatic finals in recent memory. There were so many facets to this series, and the myriad storylines that emerged only added to the depth of a matchup that came with so much built-in excitement in the first place.

Bit players like Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard took on major roles. Dwyane Wade rode a roller coaster of criticism and praise. And, of course, LeBron James tightened his grip on history.

The Heat are hoisting the trophy while the Spurs are hanging their heads, but there were plenty more winners and losers than that.
