Simple as that. 13 Spurs > 09 Magic - which you debated to no avail too - simply stupid.
No, I didn't. I never said the 12 Thunder > 10 Celtics. I don't believe that now and I didn't believe that then. I do remember saying something along the lines of the Magic being the worst Finals team in a few years, someone said they were the weakest in the last 5 years, and I agreed.
If I were ranking the last 5 teams that lost in the Finals, I'd go:
2013 Spurs/2012 Thunder (think you can basically flip a coin here)
And if you want to say 2010 Celtics > 2011 Heat, I don't have a problem with that.
