Wouldn't Stern want the Spurs to win? You can (potentially) have Duncan and Ginobili go out on top and bring the allure of LeBron continual failures be the spotlight.
If the Heat win I think you lose viewers for next season because the thought will be the Heat are going to win anyway, why watch?
And if Stern wanted to force a game 7 he did a terrible job, since the only reason the Heat won was because Spurs had one of the biggest choke jobs in NBA history.
Um....why would the NBA want it's brightest star failures being exploited?
I have to disagree that the NBA would rather want Duncan and Manu go out on top. As much as i love and appreciate Duncan's game (it's throwback style....wish the C's were able to draft him!), but people don't care about the Spurs.....just look at all the Spurs TV ratings. Brutal. Meanwhile, the Heat constantly have high ratings since Bron Bron arrived.
$$$$$ motivates Stern.
You could say that for 90% of game 6 the Heat choked. Hell, they Bron almost single-handedly choked it away himself.
