SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The staff and players of the San Antonio Spurs had a hectic offseason, but not even the busiest day this summer could make them forget what might have been just three months ago.

San Antonio was five seconds away from winning their fifth NBA title in Game 6 of the Finals only to watch the Miami Heat rally for an improbable 103-100 overtime victory. Almost as heartbreaking was a 95-88 loss in Game 7 that gave the Heat their second consecutive title and handed the Spurs their first series loss in the Finals.

Coach Gregg Popovich says he's thought about that every day.

The Spurs open training camp Tuesday at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo.
